Following the report on leaked schematics of the iPhone 12 Pro last month, Max Weinbach is back again with more information on the specs of the phone.

In a twelve-minute long video on EverythingApplePro, Weinbach shared that the 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro models will come with the high refresh rate 120Hz ProMotion display. The iPhone 12 Pro will dynamically switch between 60Hz and 120Hz to conserve battery life, which is essential as Apple is bringing 5G connectivity to the iPhone this year as well.

The 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro is expected to have a 4,400mAh battery. In comparison, the current 6.5-inch iPhone 11 Pro Max sports a 3,500mAh battery. Face ID will be improved too with a wider angle of view to allow unlocking at more angles.

Low-light performance of the camera will be enhanced with faster autofocus, improved image stabilisation and Smart HDR. The LiDAR scanner could also be used to improve autofocus and increase the accuracy of Portrait Mode photos. The telephoto lens will be upgraded to support 3x optical zoom.

Analyst Ming Chi Kuo wrote in March that the iPhone 12 Pro will come with a bigger camera sensor and sensor-shift stabilisation. Due to supply chain disruptions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, the iPhone 12 could be available for purchase later than expected. 

The Wall Street Journal claimed Apple is about one month behind on the mass production of the iPhone 12. Goldman Sachs says it does not expect some of the iPhone 12 models to be available until early November. As for the prices, tipster Jon Prosser believes Apple will sell the iPhone 12 lineup between US$649 to US$1,099 for the different models.
