The reasons why this model of the iPhone 12 is false — 2022

We live in a time of incessant rumors of the iPhone 12, since there are barely three months left for them to see the light. The information is supposed to be more and more exact with what the devices will be, but this is not always the case. In the last few hours, new models have emerged that are very contradictory with regard to their design. Below we explain the reasons on which we rely to deny it.

Similarities and differences with what the iPhone 12 will be

It has been a Twitter user named JinStore who published the following images of the iPhone 12. We remember that according to rumors there will be four devices that we see: versions of iPhone 12 and 12 Max with 5.4 and 6.1 inches and iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max with 6.1 and 6.7 inches respectively. The models come from a 3D design made on a computer and have subsequently been made a reality with a 3D printer.

There are several things that are out of line with these images. It is true that they coincide with the information currently available regarding the design of straight edges it refers, this being a novelty that would 'copy' the iPad Pro and that would resurrect a classic design that we saw in iPhone 4 and iPhone 5. However, there are more discordant points in the design, such as the ‘notch’ that these would have on their front. Although not much is said about the front ratio of the iPhone 12, it is expected that in the 'Pro' there will be a reduction in the TrueDepth module, something that we do not see even remotely in these designs. It is also not understood that five phone molds are shown, when in reality there will be four.

Another aspect far removed from other rumors is the camera module. It is known that the most advanced models will have a triple camera again, but a sensor LiDAR as we have already seen iniPad Pro 2020. There is no trace of this sensor in the designs shown by the mockups, something that ends up leading us to deduce that these mockups are not a true reflection of the iPhone 12. Neither does the Smart Connector that seems to be seen on the side would be an element of this year's iPhone. In any case, it is not said at any time that they are leaks from Apple, but it is shown as something very close to what we will see in the flagship look of Tim Cook's company.

So what will the iPhone 12 be like?

Actually the difference between the models seen previously and what is expected of the iPhone 12 is not too far, but we could not consider these valid for what we have commented in the previous section. In essence it will be something similar with the square frames, but it would be necessary to add a small reduction in the front eyebrow and add the LiDAR sensor in a camera module that, unlike the 11 Pro, would be more symmetrical.

There is always information of all kinds and although some people may be reluctant to believe in the designs before they are officially presented by Apple, the truth is that in the end these tend to have been revealed a long time before. Without going any further, in January 2019 we already knew about the iPhone 11 despite the fact that they were not presented until September. On this occasion, if we put together all the information from relevant sources and analysts, we can also get an idea of ​​what 2020 will be like. The one in the previous image could be one of the most successful, although with the doubt that the sound switch is finally going to work from the bottom up instead of what we currently have.
