Now, building on all those claims, a tipster has shared a hands-on video, giving a fair idea of what the phones would look like when they launch next month.
Here's all you need to know about it.
It is just the empty chassis, which means we do not get to see the hardware of the upcoming phone. But, it does give a sense of the design on offer.
Looks-wise, the shell shows, iPhone 12 Pro could carry a boxy shape - which was last seen on the iPhone 4 and iPhone 5 - with the finish of the iPhone 11 family.
You get flat stainless steel edges, cut-outs for volume rockers, relocated SIM card tray, a smart connector as well as a matte rear glass for a premium in-hand experience.
Here it is! Official iPhone 12 Pro chassis leak. Confirms mostly 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. pic.twitter.com/YifSX7SWxh— EverythingApplePro (@EveryApplePro) September 11, 2020
More importantly, the shell of the device also appears to show the long-rumored LiDAR scanner.
It would apparently be positioned under the ultra-wide camera, which will come as part of the same triple camera plus flash arrangement that was available on the iPhone 11 Pro series.
Previous reports suggested that only the 6.7-inch Pro Max model would have LiDAR, but this video tells otherwise.
Another leak from tipster Jon Prosser suggests iPhone 12 series has gone into mass-production and may not come with the highly-anticipated 120Hz display. So, a 60Hz or perhaps 90Hz panel might be on the way.
The device is also rumored to include stronger magnets for more effective wireless charging.
As for the launch, the iPhone 12 family is expected to debut in October 2020.
