Apple is rumored to release a total of five iPhone models this year including four flagship models and one affordable variant. A new report from Japanese publication Mac Otakara reveals sizing details of these upcoming phones. It offers a comparison with the current-gen iPhone 11 lineup while also talking about camera module size.
The report starts by mentioning that all four iPhone 12 models will sport an OLED display panel. They will also have Face ID biometric authentication which means no fingerprint scanner. The smallest 5.1-inch model is said to have height somewhere between an iPhone SE and iPhone 8. Apple is rumored to release two 6.1-inch models and at least one of them is expected to have a height between iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro.
The tallest 6.7-inch model will be relatively taller but thinner than the iPhone 11 Pro Max. It is reported to have a 7.1mm thickness which is a significant drop from 8.1mm thickness of the current-gen phone. This should result in a better grip for users which is an important aspect considering its huge size.
As for the camera department, Apple is said to offer dual rear cameras with 5.4- and one of the 6.1-inch models. The other 6.1-inch model and the 6.7-inch model will have a triple rear camera setup. These two models are also said to have 3D ToF technology support. The triple camera sensors on the tallest 6.7-inch model are said to be of a bigger size as compared to the iPhone 11 Pro Max.
