If you're looking to get a new phone soon - or if you're just one of those people who like to stay current with the newest tech - new information recently leaked about the iPhone 12 may help inform your next purchase.

A couple of prominent leakers have shared new information regarding Apple's newest phones. Although this information could be proven wrong once the phones are released, their track record for correct leaks for other devices in the past suggest that their speculation is mostly accurate. 

YouTuber Jon Prosser of Front Page Tech published a video on May 11th, saying Apple will offer four models of the iPhone 12— a base model, a larger Max model, and a “Pro” and “Pro Max” version. The Pro models will get stainless steel chassis, a 512GB storage option and 6GB RAM Vs an aluminum chassis, 256GB top end storage and 4GB RAM for the standard models.

128GB will be the new entry level storage, which is double the previous 64GB starting point. Prosser also says, however, that 120Hz displays will not come to the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Max, and probably not for the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max. So far, leaks suggest the iPhone 12 is set to get a very different design but it's likely going to take some cues from previous iPhone models.

Currently, it seems there will be four sizes to choose from:

  • iPhone 12 with a 5.4-inch display
  • iPhone 12 Max with a 6.1-inch display
  • iPhone 12 Pro with a 6.1-inch display
  • iPhone 12 Pro Max with a 6.7-inch display
Regarding pricing, Prosser believes it will be in line with the price ranges on previous models and shared information on how much he believes the phones will cost in the US:
Model 128GB 256GB 512GB
iPhone 12 $649 $749 N/A
iPhone 12 Max $749 $849 N/A
iPhone 12 Pro $999 $1,099 $1,299
iPhone 12 Pro Max $1,099 $1,199 $1,399

There have been varying reports on whether or not the phone's release is being delayed, but it looks like it will be in the hands of users by fall of 2020. If you want to get deep into the nitty gritty, there has been a lot of coverage and additional information shared about the upcoming iPhone 12 on sites including Forbes, Apple Insider, TechRadar, and more.

Nope. Apple products are not allowed in this house. Besides, the Samsung flagship phones and OnePlus flagship phones usually have a more powerful processor, standard 120hz displays, storage, and camera. Not to mention not being locked into the walled garden Apple locks it's users into.
