Apple to Launch iPhone 12: Hi, Speed Event
Although the invite doesn’t clarify about the announcements that will be made at the event, but there is a high belief that the “Hi, Speed” event will be none other than the iPhone 12 launch event. With the new Apple Watch and iPad Air already announced during the “Time Flies” event in September, the iPhone 12 remains the only major product that’s still under wraps. As such, it is very anticipated that it would be the new iPhone 12 that would be launched at the October 13 event.
Ahead of the event, the iPhone 12 has seen itself leaked a number of times from various sources, some with exhaustive leaks revealing key details about the device. Here’s everything we know about it so far.
Four New iPhones: Two New Screen Sizes
If we compile all the trusted sources for iPhone 12 launch rumor: instead of announcing 3 new iPhone models, like Apple did in 2017, 2018, and 2019, the company will reveal four this year:
- A new 5.4-inch model, which would be smaller screen than the 5.8-inch iPhone 11 Pro
- A low-end 6.1-inch model — the same screen size as the iPhone 11 — with similar specs as its 5.4-inch sibling
- A second 6.1-inch model with high-end specs
- A new 6.7-inch model, which would be a bigger screen than the 6.5-inch iPhone 11 Pro Max
iPhone 12 series: Specifications and display
Unlike the iPhone 11 series which featured a mix of display technologies, the iPhone 12 series is expected to come with OLED panels. However, reports suggest the panels will not support ultra-fast 120Hz refresh rates, and would max out at 60Hz.

All 4 iPhones are set to be powered by Apple’s brand new A14 Bionic chipset. This chipset is the fastest that Apple has created till date. However, leaked Geekbench scores have indicated that this chipset may still not make the iPhone 12 the fastest or most powerful in the business. Although, what we’re mildly confident of is that the chipset will at least make it more power-efficient than previous iPhones, helping improve battery life on the iPhone 12.
The chipset is expected to be paired to ample amount of RAM. Barclays analyst Blayne Curtis has previously said the iPhone 12 Pro models will feature 6GB RAM, while the iPhone 12 will have 4GB RAM.
iPhone 12 series: A Possible Camera Beast
In 2019 Apple did major changes for iPhone 11, but now Apple could make bigger changes to the iPhone 12 series this year. According to rumors at least one of the phones could bring the 3D LiDAR Scanner while was added in the 2020 iPad Pro models.
As for the number of cameras, the iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max are expected to get 3 rear camera lenses. One of which will be wide, the other an ultra-wide, and the third a telephoto lens. The iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 are expected tipped to feature dual-lens systems.
