We are still six months away from this year’s iPhone being launched but leaks have already highlighted some captivating details. The iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max will reportedly have a 64MP main camera and have the ability to shoot night mode photos on it, the telephoto and the wide-angle lens.
That main camera will most likely employ the same technology used by the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra, binning pixels together to produce a much higher quality photo with a ‘normal’ 16MP resolution. The ability to shoot night mode photos on all three rear facing cameras will also be a standout feature for the phone.
According to the leak, the night mode additions will be accomplished by increasing the aperture of those lenses to f/1.6 or f/1.7 for the wide-angle lens. No word on the improvements to the telephoto have come to light.
Also falling in line with the competition, we also expect Apple to deliver a quick refresh rate display. This is most likely going to be a 120Hz panel, but could also be a slightly more modest 90Hz.
Apple is also working on a macro camera, but we aren’t expecting it to feature on this year’s flagship. It is more likely to feature on the 2021 phone. The wide angle lens on the iPhone 12 Pro will be 35% wider than the current iteration, which is a marked improvement.
The new phones will also carry 5G capabilities, although we’re not sure if it will be of the low-band variety (which isn’t much of an upgrade over 4G) or the full millimetre wave speeds. This, and the higher refresh rates on the display, means that it will need a bigger battery – reportedly about 10% more capacity than current models.
Stay tuned for more details on the new iPhones – we’re sure to get some more leaks relatively soon.
