INTRO: The iPhone 12 launch may be delayed by a few weeks, but the leaks look to be right on time. As is typically the case, dummy images of the upcoming iPhones have started shooting up on the web showing off the planning for the new phones.
The images come courtesy of an Israeli Apple fan community and are reportedly from a case maker that’s using them to form iPhone 12 cases. Using dummy units to style and develop cases for iPhones isn’t unusual. In fact, it’s how most case makers design cases well beforehand to be ready in time for the iPhone launch.
The images give us a transparent check out the refreshed design for this year’s Apple iPhones. As shown in multiple renders and leaks within the past, the iPhone 12 will accompany sharp, flat edges like the iPhone 4. This will also make the iPhone 12 look similar, design-wise, to the iPad Pro line from tablets from Apple.
While we will see the iPhone 12 Pro and therefore the iPhone 12 within the images, all of them show the units from the rear. That means we miss out on seeing the most important design change for the iPhone 12 in these images — the smaller notch.
We already know that the iPhone 12 series will contains four devices. There will be a 5.4-inch iPhone 12 and a 6.1-inch iPhone 12. Along with that, there’ll even be a 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro and a 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max. While iPhones usually launch in September, a recent leak suggests that this year the launch is going to be held in October instead.
Anyway, because of the pictures of those dummy models, we will get a far better idea of how the iPhone 12 will look in the real world. However, it also goes without saying that since these are leaks, you ought to take this information with a pinch of salt.
