Apple is expected to open a new iPhones class this year. According to analyst Jon Prosser, the company is developing the mobile phone for now called iPhone 12 Max. It would be based on the upcoming iPhone 12, but with more advanced specifications. Currently, there is already the iPhone 11 in the Pro Max version, but a model with only “Max” in the name would be a new addition to the company’s portfolio.
The specifications point to screen with Super Retina XDR technology, storage between 128 GB and 512 GB, and LiDAR sensor in Pro versions. The launch date of the successors of the iPhone 12 line remains a secret but is usually in September.
The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Max are expected to feature a 5.4-inch and 6.1-inch OLED display, respectively, including Super Retina resolution. The iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max are expected to come with a 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch XDR Super Retina OLED panel, plus 10-bit color depth.
Basic versions are expected to come with aluminum construction, dual camera, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB and 256GB of storage. Pro models are expected to have a stainless steel body, a photo set consisting of three cameras and a LiDAR 3D sensor, 6 GB of RAM, and a third 512 GB of storage.
The four models are to be equipped with A14 chip and 5G connection. The most advanced versions may also feature a 120 Hz refresh rate screen, but Prosser claims there are still internal conflicts regarding the subject.
