Bits of rumors also suggest that the 5.4 and 6.7-inch iPhones will be towards the high-end OLED devices. On the same edge, Apple also proceeds to offer a lower-end 6.1-inch with the same OLED display. This is going to be an out-of-this-world feature.

Apple’s chipmaker TSMC revealed that it is on course to deliver 5-nanometer chips for Apple’s 2020 lineup. A14 chips that will be manufactured with 5nm will be faster, efficient, and powerful.
⦁ 5G Compatibility
5G enabled smartphones have been the talk of the town in 2019. The majority of Apple’s close rivals such as Samsung, LG, Oppo & Huawei have pioneered in 5G compatible devices. While the Cupertino-based tech giant fell behind on the 5G front. It seems as if the wait of iPhone lovers is going to be over now.

⦁ Rear Cameras & True-Depth Camera System
In 2019 iPhone 11 variants, Apple rolled out significant improvements to the rear camera system with the new triple-lens of the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max, and 2020 may bring much more camera upgrades.
A few famous leaks also stated that Apple will launch a laser-powered time-of-flight 3D back camera in the iPhone 12. In this way, Apple will acquire a noteworthy edge on augmented reality experiences.
A time-of-flight (ToF) camera framework utilizes a laser to figure the time that it takes for the laser to bob off of things in a room. It then utilizes the information to make an exact 3D image of the encompassing zone. It will boost the photos with depth capturing.
The camera is said to have the option to check zones up to 15 feet from the handset. Apple’s front-sided True-Depth camera uses 3D technology but since it comes with infrared and not laser-powered, it works when the distance is 25 to 50 cm.
