The famous news leak, Sonny Dickson, has shared many photos that it says are models of the upcoming iPhone 12 lineup.
Pictures of iPhone templates usually appear every year just a few months before the usual time for Apple to launch them from September to October. These blocks are usually based on blueprints obtained from the Chinese supply chain, such as the ones that leaked last week. These dolls are often used to help test the phone before it is officially revealed.
The leaked photos are mostly compatible with the details we already know, as the device features an iPad Pro-style design with flat edges. Apple is expected to launch three iPhones this year in three sizes – 5.4 inches, 6.1 inches, and 6.7 inches. Dickson’s leaked photos give a clear comparison of the three new sizes.
However, the camera settings do not reflect what is expected. Previous leaks have largely agreed that the iPhone 12 models in 5.4 inches and 6.1 inches will have dual camera settings (two rear cameras), while the iPhone 12 Pro models with sizes 6.1 inches and 6.7 inches will have triple camera settings. It is also noted that the molds are missing the LiDAR scanner, which is expected to be at least on the 6.7-inch model.
Here are the first iPhone 12 dummies: 3 sizes (5.4, 6.1, 6.7). Flat edges, 3 cameras on the bump like recent molds. Notch, cameras should not be taken 100%, but chassis promising. pic.twitter.com/fcw3bLhVEF

Dickson warns that you should not rely too much on camera layouts in these photos. However, it is believed that it provides clear pictures of what the upcoming structure design might look like through different new sizes.
Dickson has been known to leak design patterns in the past such as the iPad Pro 2020 update, and it was also recently expected that the latest developers will see the announcement of the new iMac with the different design language and thinner bezels.
