The latest report from renowned Twitter leaker l0vetodream seemingly confirms the names of the upcoming iPhone 12 models. Apple’s smartphone line-up for 2020 will feature a brand new model called iPhone 12 mini. This would be the first time that Apple would be using the ‘mini’ branding for an iPhone.

As you can tell, Apple is really playing around with the screen sizes this year. All the new iPhones will feature OLED displays, powerful A14 chips, more RAM, and 5G networking support. The design will be similar to that of iPad Pro and iPad Air. The major differentiating factor between these new iPhone 12 models will be the number of cameras. The Pro models will ship with more three cameras, while the non-Pro models will ship with two cameras.
We are less than a month away from the official announcement when Apple will be launching its first major iPhone redesign since the iPhone X launched. The iPhone launch this year has been the delayed, likely due to the pandemic. The company is expected to announce the new phones in a virtual event in October.
