Last Friday, foreign digital YouTube (ID: Everything Apple Pro, hereinafter EAP) released a video that exposed a large number of appearance details of the iPhone's ԡ 12 Pro Max that Apple will release this year. This video is based on the CAD drawing provided by Max weinbach, editor of XDA forum, and Jon Prosser, a well-known informant, also said that this CAD drawing is highly reliable. However, there are still some inaccurate details in this video, which will be pointed out below.
Here's what the video contains.
Later, he pointed out that the CAD drawing is only 70% accurate, and the incomplete accuracy is the location and size of the lens module, as well as the size of the bangs.
The size of the iPhone 12 Pro Max is wider, but thinner, than the iPhone 11 Pro Max released this year. The width of cross section is 7.39 mm, 0.7 mm smaller than that of iPhone 11 Pro max, the width of frame is 1.55 mm, 0.9 mm smaller than that of iPhone 11 Pro max, and the width of chin is only 2.3 mm.
The most intuitive feeling is that the screen share will be further improved.
Because of the square design, the width of iPhone 12 Pro Max is increased by 0.2 mm and the length of iPhone 11 Pro Max is increased by nearly 3 mm. The biggest change is the camera module. Because of the lidar sensor, the length and width of the lens module are increased by nearly 5mm. EAP then added that the position and size parameters of each lens are not completely accurate, but the overall design layout can be 100% determined.
The protruding part of the camera also has some changes. The lens of the iPhone 12 Pro Max will not obviously exist above the glass as the previous generation, but the whole module is slightly protruding compared with the previous generation, and its appearance is very similar to that of the iPad Pro 2020.
Screen and border
The most obvious change is the "bangs" part.
According to EAP, apple tested two "bangs": the first was that the length of the "bangs" was consistent with the iPhone 11 Pro max, but the edge curvature was different; the second was that both the length of the "bangs" was shortened and the edge curvature was changed.
As can be seen from the CAD model, apple finally adopted the second plan. So it's certain that the look of Apple's flagship product will change this year for the first time in three years.
According to Max weinbach, editor of XDA, the narrowed "bangs" will be slightly longer than what oneplus 6 has. However, as mentioned above, this "Liu Hai" has not been finalized before writing, but we can roughly know that its size and curvature will change.
According to Bloomberg news, at least two of the iPhone 12 series will have flat screens. It is known that the iPhone 12 Pro Series may use flat screen, but the iPhone 12 is unknown. The screen material is not 2.5D glass, so it is not different from the previous generation, but there will be slight bending at the extreme edge.
The back glass is slightly above the metal middle frame of the phone, which is not as prominent as the iPhone 11 Pro max. If the mobile phone is accidentally dropped, it can ensure more safety.
Antenna length increases. This generation is up to 1.83 mm, nearly twice the size of the iPhone 11 Pro max, apparently because 5g is finally added. Apple is trying its best to develop new antenna technology. This generation of products will have faster cellular data transmission rate and WiFi rate.
There is no sign that the mute control will change from landscape to landscape.
All buttons on the phone are lowered, which is more comfortable for a 6.7-inch mobile phone.
The SIM slot position was changed to the other side of the body. The reason for Apple's move is still unknown, but EAP speculates that the iPhone 12 Pro Max motherboard may move.
Instead of the original SIM card slot, it's a small version of the iPad Pro smart connector interface. It's not clear what it's used for, but there's a rumor that the iPhone needs to support the stylus, but it's not realistic to charge the apple pencil on the iPad pro, because there's a power button on this side.
IPhone 12 Pro Max continues to use lightning interface, and usb-c interface is not suitable for iPhone products again. The number of holes in the lower right speaker will be reduced from 7 to 6, but the sound quality will be improved. According to Max weinbach, the volume of this speaker will be increased by 10% - 15% compared with the previous generation, and it will have a larger dynamic range.
Finally, there is the color matching part. It is basically determined that the iPhone 12 Pro Series will add navy blue color. Apple is testing two different shades of Navy, but both are darker. The color that will be replaced may be the very hot dark night green color this year.
The iPhone 12, instead of the pro version, still features color. New colors include light blue, new violet shade and light orange. Apple is considering choosing two of these three colors to be the iPhone 12 color, but it is still unknown which two will replace the iPhone 11 color.
As far as the current disclosure is concerned, this year's iPhone 12 series should be the biggest change in the past three years, but the disclosure is not over. EAP said it would release videos again this week on the iPhone 12 Pro Max camera and screen parameters, including the latest news on the 120Hz screen refresh rate.
Returning to the classic look of the iPhone 4, supplemented by a smaller version of "bangs" and a very narrow frame, it looks like there will be another rush after the iPhone is released this year.
