We’re still a couple of months until the iPhone 12 series come out.
However, it appears that some of the key design and body dimensions of the iPhone 12 Pro Max has came out. This prompted the folks from EverythingApplePro YouTube channel and Max Weinbach, a credible leakster and tech journalist, to create detailed renders for the device. You can check the video below.
Just a quick note, the video did say that the leaks they based the renders on are 70% complete. It’s said that the display and body were correct, but Apple kept the camera design in deep secret to make sure that the key design of the upcoming iPhone 12 wouldn’t get fully leaked.
Still, it might have accurately revealed the key hardware placements. The leaks might came from case makers, who usually get first dibs on iPhone prototypes for them to base their case designs from.
Still, we expect the iPhone 12 will keep using the square camera bump on the back, just like the iPhone 11 series. It’s highly plausible that the iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max will be equipped with the new LiDAR sensor that we saw on the new iPad Pro 2020.
The renders show a design that’s similar to the new iPad Pro and older iPhones. Particularly, the iPhone 5s and the smartphones before it. And personally, we think that the iPhone 5s is the best-designed iPhone ever — even up to this day.
Apple is bringing back the flat edges — which looks cooler than curved edges that the current iPhones have — albeit not the most ergonomic to hold.
The video note that the iPhone 12 Pro series will be thinner than their predecessors. But, the camera bump will be slightly bigger. The bezels were also dramatically slimmed down, which may result in an overall smaller body.
Apple might also include a white ring surrounding the LiDAR sensor for an aesthetic touch. The sizable antenna bands are also making a comeback. The SIM tray will be back on its previous location in the middle, higher from where it is now on newer iPhones.
The renders also show another hardware opposite to the SIM tray. It’s rumored to be a smart connector, a feature we saw on the iPad Pro that allows it to connect the Apple Pencil and other accessories.
The new specs and features of the iPhone 12 Pro Max are pretty predictable. The upcoming iPhones might have a new A14 Bionic processor, with a smaller 5nm build, and has 5G support to compete with Android phones.
The Max model is expected to have a 6.7-inch screen with 120Hz Pro Motion technology. Other than the aforementioned thinner bezels, the upcoming iPhones are also expected to have smaller notches.
In fact, Apple can make it smaller if they remove the FaceID sensor and use an in-display fingerprint scanner like everyone else.

Other than the new LiDAR sensor, we expect the other three cameras to have the same lenses. There’s the wide, ultra-wide, and telephoto. But, we do expect Apple to improve the sensors behind them.
Well, that’s it for now, We’ll have more information about this device once they are available to be on the look out for that.
