Alleged iPhone 12 render suggests Apple might finally get rid of the notch

The iPhone 11 series was launched in September last year. Now the Cupertino-based brand’s next-generation iPhone has started to surface on the internet. While we are still months away from the launch of iPhone 12 Pro, we now have an idea of what the smartphone might look like, thanks to leaked renders posted by Svetapple. The renders reveal the iPhone 12 Pro with drastic changes, as it suggests Apple plans to do away with the notch display. The company has been long rumoured to ditch the notch that debuted on the iPhone X back in 2017. 

The renders show the iPhone 12 Pro with a thin top bezel instead of a notch as seen on the current iPhone 11. It houses the necessary components like an infrared camera, speaker, microphone, dot projector and a 12MP front-facing camera. The bezel also accommodates sensors like flood illuminator, proximity sensor and ambient light sensor. The side and bottom bezels also appear thick compared to the current models. Another image reveals the volume rocker buttons on the left side while the power button and SIM slot is located on the right side. Apart from this, the render doesn’t reveal any more information. 

As per past rumours, the iPhone 12 Pro is expected to feature a large 6.7-inch display. It will be equipped with a new sensor-shifting camera stabilisation technology that is tipped to replace OIS for shake-free shots. According to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the next iPhone Pro models will reportedly feature 120Hz ProMotion OLED panels, mmWave 5G connectivity and the A14 Bionic chipset paired with 6GB RAM. 

It’s too early to take this iPhone 12 Pro news seriously. With the current coronavirus pandemic, it’s likely that this year’s iPhone could be delayed until November. We expect more rumours and renders to crop up in the next few months.
