With Apple’s iPhone event (probably) happening next month, we have a pretty good idea about the phones the company’s about to launch. Most of the reports agree that we’ll see four new iPhones, the most Apple has ever launched at one time. 

But now, often-accurate leaker L0vetodream (via 9to5Mac) has some interesting information on what the new iPhones will be called. 

In a tweet, he said the smallest and cheapest new iPhone, the 5.4-inch variant, will be called iPhone 12 mini (it’s unclear whether the lack of space between “12” and “mini” is deliberate, but it wouldn’t be typical for Apple’s product naming). 

The 6.1-inch version will be called iPhone 12, while the more powerful 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch variants will be called iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max, respectively. 

It makes sense, as it echoes the iPad’s naming scheme (even though there’s no “Max” iPad Pro), and a phone with a 5.4-inch display truly is a “mini” phone nowadays. 

iPhone 12 Pro details:

True Depth array same size.

Bezels are “noticeably thinner”

Slightly larger display – making the notch “appear” smaller.

Face ID works from wider angles. Even flat on a table.

Sides are flat, but glass has slight curve.

Rear cam module is 10% larger.

Previous reports mostly agree on the display sizes, but the naming is new. From what we’ve heard so far, all four new iPhones will have OLED displays, all will have Apple’s new A14 chip, and all will support 5G. The Pro variants are likely to have a 120Hz display refresh rate as well as LiDAR (like the latest iPad Pro models), among other improvements.
