It’s only a couple of days left for the Apple September Event 2020 and we are still getting leaks and renders of the upcoming iPhone series. A couple of hours ago, a video has been leaked showing the whole back chassis and LiDAR placement of the upcoming iPhone 12 Pro. The unit showed in the video almost matches the earlier renders too.
A newly leaked clip posted by @EveryApplePro now claims to showcase the main chassis for the iPhone 12 Pro and arguably looks more trustworthy, based on what we know about the upcoming phone. EveryApplePro posted a leaked video clip of the chassis of iPhone 12 Pro, which includes, “Here it is! Official iPhone 12 Pro chassis leak. Confirms mostly the same camera with new LiDAR placement, flat sides, magnet cutouts & smart connector-like 5G antenna? This seems to confirm the 6.1 Pro model will get LiDAR too. October can’t come soon enough.”

The Apple September Event is going to held on the 15th of September 2020. And the video clip already showed us the overall design of the smartphone. It has a flat-ended body that can easily be seen from the chassis. In addition to a camera module design from the iPhone 11 Pro with a LiDAR sensor added to the corner. And support for 5G.
Stainless steel and matte glass finish are additionally conspicuous, and considering how well this lines up with previous rumors, also because of the reputation of the leaker, we’d say there is a good chance that this really is an iPhone 12 part.
We’re expecting four new iPhones to be unveiled by Apple this year: in ascending order of price, the 5.4-inch iPhone 12, the 6.1-inch iPhone Max, the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro, and the 6.7-inch iPhone Pro Max. The main triple-camera setup seems pretty-much just like what we currently wear the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max, with the notable exception of a further sensor hole, said to deal with the new LiDAR module. The latter has been amply featured in leaks and eventually seeing some physical indications of its existence in leaks is often considered an honest sign for credibility here.
With no internals present, we can’t gather any additional information on 5G connectivity either. Currently, industry sources suggest that each one iPhone 12 models will have Sub-6 5G support, but only the 12 Pro Max will have enough room to suit the additional antennas that are needed to handle the high-frequency signal (26-28 GHz).
The big unknown is when they’ll officially break cover. In a standard year, new iPhones would’ve been launched within the first week of September, except for obvious reasons, the 2020 batch is delayed. According to the new information, Apple is already ready for the production of the iPhone 12 series, and therefore the company also plans to launch the iPhone 12 on sale in late September or early October. Apple hopes to possess up to 80 million 5G iPhones from all its factories by the top of the year, consistent with the new data. the remainder should be produced in early 2021. consistent with rumors, of the projected 80 million, 40% are going to be the iPhone 12 Max.
