Apple’s upcoming iPhone 12 lineup leaks have been fooled at a steady pace for some time. We even got the video footage for the iPhone 12 that was working some time ago. That unit matched some of the leaked renderings, but was definitely a bit suspicious. The newly leaked clip now claims to be introducing the main chassis of the iPhone 12 Pro and definitely looks more reliable based on what we know about future phones.
It’s here! Official iPhone 12 Pro chassis leak. Do you see almost the same camera with a new LiDAR arrangement, flat sides, magnetic cutouts, 5G antennas like smart connectors? This seems to confirm that the 6.1 Pro model also gets LiDAR. October cannot come soon. pic.twitter.com/YifSX7SWxh

According to videos and some other rumors, Apple may certainly be looking for a more “classic” industrial look for this generation. The overall body shape has returned to some iconic designs like the iPhone 4 and iPhone 5. With the exception of curves and overall silhouette changes, standard metal frames and glass sandwich constructions are surprisingly present.
The main triple camera setup is similar to the one currently used on the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max, with the exception of the additional sensor holes to accommodate the new LiDAR module. The latter is well covered in the leak, and finally seeing some physical signs of its presence in the leak can be considered here as a reliable sign.
This is how the iPhone 12 magnets are placed
Another thing that allegedly part of the video iPhone 12 Pro seems to be correct is the specific cutout for charge adjustment, both with the wireless charging coil and the new attractive magnet positioning system. is. Both were prominent in previous leaks.
Unfortunately, I haven’t seen a place near the entire assembled phone here. It is decisively lacking in its display. This leaves the critical issue of small display notches and the 120Hz refresh rate unresolved, at least on top-end models.
If the inside does not exist, no additional information about the 5G connection can be collected. Currently, industry sources suggest that all iPhone 12 models support Sub-6 5G, but fit the additional antennas needed to handle high-frequency signals (26-28 GHz). Only 12 Pro Max has enough space.
Most sources agree with a total of four iPhone 12 models, even if they’re not in the loop. There are two 6.1-inch models, a 5.4-inch model, and a 6.7-inch model. Two 6.1-inch variants will reportedly reach the market in front of two different-sized siblings. We expect the first iPhone 12 model, preferably around mid-October.
