Japanese site Macotakara posted several images of purported iPhone 12 dummy units.

The dummy units reveal that the SIM card tray will be relocated on the new iPhone model to make space for the new Qualcomm antenna module. Qualcomm's 5G antenna module will bring mmWave 5G support to the iPhone 12 lineup.

While the SIM card tray is currently located on the same side as the power button, Apple is said to be shifting it to the left side below the volume control buttons. Macotakara also reiterated several specs of the iPhone 12 models, which include four models with three different screen sizes, and a more rectangular design similar to the iPhone 4 and iPad Pro. 

However, the dummy units show a different camera layout from the leaked schematics of the iPhone 12 obtained by Max Weinbach. The iPhone 12 Pro dummy units appear to show three rear camera modules while renders of the iPhone 12 Pro suggest the addition of a LiDAR scanner.
