Apple's upcoming iPhone 12 Pro will also have the LiDAR sensor seen on the new iPad Pro presented in late March. At least, the many indiscretions that could have been further confirmed by a post published in the last few hours on Twitter by @Choco_bit, a user who has already leaked interesting details about Apple products in the past. The biography of this account indicates that the page is managed by a former Apple authorized service provider.
An image, apparently a screenshot, was published in the tweet in which the arrangement of the cameras is clearly shown that they should have iPhone 12 Pro is iPhone 12 Pro Max: a wide angle lens, an ultra wide angle lens, a telephoto lens and the LiDAR scanner which, in addition to providing information on the depth of field, also allows for greater accuracy in the use of augmented reality applications.
The leaker does not give information on the source of this image which, apparently, would have been initially shared on Instagram by conceptsiphone which, in turn, would have found it in the iOS 14 code.
Numerous reports have so far suggested that the Pro versions of the upcoming iPhone 12 will have a new depth sensor. This image allows us to better understand how the rear photographic compartment could be rearranged to adapt to the LiDAR scanner. For example, the flash will be moved to the central part.
Apple is expected to announce the new iPhone 12 range in the fall, although some reports indicate that there may be some delays due to the pandemic caused by COVID-19. However, if everything goes according to plan, there will be four new iPhones 12: one 5.4-inch, two 6.1-inch models and one 6.7-inch.
All of them would have OLED displays and would support 5G connectivity. The LiDAR scanner would only be used for Pro models. As regards the design, the profile is expected to abandon the rounded lines in favor of a more squared design, similar to that adopted with the iPhone 4.
