Apple’s Massive iPhone 12 Upgrade Suddenly Confirmed – Forbes

The release of Apple’s iPhone 12 range may be shrouded in mystery, but we now know their increased price tags will be matched by an equally massive upgrade.

In a new exclusive, major YouTuber Filip Koroy (aka EverythingApplePro) has partnered with prolific leaker Max Weinbach to reveal Apple’s iPhone 12 Pro Max will have the biggest display ever seen on an iPhone and the highest resolution. But he also has leaked images of the device and it does not look like everyone expected

Addressing the display, Koroy states that the iPhone 12 Pro Max will jump to a 6.7-inch, 2788 x 1284 pixel screen, up from the 6.5-inch, 2688 x 1242 iPhone 11 Pro Max. Due to its larger size, the new phone’s pixel density will be the same as the iPhone 11 Pro Max (451ppi), while Koroy confirms there will be no return for 3D Touch. 

But what will really get Apple fans talking, is the new iPhone’s design. Koroy has attained real world images of an iPhone 12 Pro Max PVT (Product Validation Test) model, the last version of a device before it enters mass production. And, despite multiple rumors to the contrary, it shows Apple will retain the same large notch first introduced with the 2017 iPhone X. There is also little evidence from the images that the range will have significantly thinner bezels, so the iPhone 12 Pro Max may be even larger than anticipated though 120Hz clearly still remains in the balance.

One thing that will be smaller, however, is the box because Koroy shows off material that reveals Apple is upgrading the iPhone 12 range’s fast charger from 18W to 20W (as recently certified), but it will be “sold separately”. This move will keep prices down as Apple adds expensive new 5G modems into the iPhone 12 line-up, but it does mean users will have to pay more for phones which seemingly will not last as long

Despite this, the iPhone 12 still looks set to sell like hot cakes, thanks to a new chassis design, clever camera tech and barnstorming performance. A cheaper model is on the horizon, however, so keep this in mind when Apple eventually launches these devices following tease after tease
