The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro are two highly anticipated smartphones this year. Although there is still some time until September and more specifically five months before that, the site EverythingApplePro and Max Weinbach partnered to reveal new details. However, this particular leak focuses specifically on the iPhone 12 Pro Max 5G, which will replace the iPhone 11 Pro Max at launch. This top of the range already had a large 6.5 inch screen. Now the new version gets even bigger with a 6.7 inch panel.
iPhone 12 Pro Max 5G: mega-leak reveals the king of smartphones!
The first CAD files of the next device, which are said to be 70% complete, suggest that it will have dimensions of 160.84 x 78.09 x 7.39 mm. This means that the phone is noticeably taller and slightly wider than its predecessor (157.95 x 77.84 x 8.1 mm) and yet thinner.
Apple reduced the size to a minimum, implementing two very important changes. First, the iPhone 12 Pro Max 5G includes a complete flat stainless steel structure, instead of the existing rounded implementation, something that helps to reduce its width and height.
However, the most important factor is the panels. Apple has decided to update the front panel design after three years with considerably thinner bezels that will help this flagship compete more effectively with the latest Android devices.
The panels featured on the iPhone 11 Pro Max measure 2.52 mm, while those on the iPhone 12 Pro Max are only 1.55 mm wide. This means that Apple has effectively removed almost 2 mm from the phone's height and width.
In the meantime, Apple is finally considering implementing a smaller monocle.
These new panels would not be complete without a new monorail to accompany them. Apple is testing two variants at this time and, although it is not known which one to choose, both have been revealed.
The first version is represented in the renderings below and maintains the existing height of the monocle. However, it significantly reduces the width and implements the curvature changes that contribute to a better integration with the chassis.
The second version to be worked on maintains the width of the current generation monocle, but matches it with the curvature changes mentioned above and a great reduction in height. Eventually we will also have new components for Face ID.
At the rear we will have a new design on the rear panel that accommodates the camera system. As with the front, the frosted glass is completely flat and sits just above the chassis with just a subtle curve along the edges to improve the hand feel.
The camera module itself has increased in size – it measures 31.75 mm in width, against 26.87 mm – and houses the new LiDAR Scanner, in addition to a triple camera configuration.
The protrusion also increased from 1.21 mm to 1.26 mm, although Apple chose to reduce the protrusion of the individual rings on the camera and increase the thickness of the module to make it less noticeable. It is a design similar to that of the new iPad that was launched last month. You can see our unboxing of the new iPad here.
The last thing worth noting is that each camera is supposed to be larger. The exact sizes remain uncertain, but this change should help accommodate larger sensors to improve performance in all lighting conditions.
As mentioned earlier, the iPhone 12 Pro Max adopts a flat stainless steel structure. The CAD files suggest that it will continue to adopt the same silencing system. The common switch that Apple has already accustomed us to. We will also have a button to turn on and off below for easy access.
The antenna bands have also increased considerably in size – 1.83 mm vs 1 mm – but this will be justified with the introduction of 5G network support, something that should come as a standard across the iPhone 12 range.
The SIM card tray has also been relocated to the other side of the smartphone. You can suggest an internal layout revised and developed to accommodate a larger battery, which should help offset the extra charge of the 5G.
However, we also have a Lightning port and a speaker at the bottom.
