Lustworthy iPhone 12 Pro concept will hold you over until the real thing launches


So many camera lenses.

An all-new iPhone 12 Pro concept is out this week, hot on the heels of the latest report that Apple plans to introduce four 5G iPhones this fall.

The beautiful new video concept created by Donel Bagrov and Anton Panton envisions the most drop-dead-gorgeous iPhone we’ve ever seen, with a slick new body design, haptic volume slider, 120Hz refresh rate display and so much more.

We sure hope the 2020 iPhone looks something like this:

Bagrov and Panton break down all the details of their iPhone 12 Pro mockup on their Behance page. The four-camera array on the back got the most attention, boasting a 64MP sensor that can shoot 8K video at 30fps. It seems unlikely that 8K video will make it into this year’s iPhones but it’s fun to dream.

They also area hoping Apple bumps up slo-mo to 4K 120fps. The telephoto lens on the back has been upgraded to a 5x optical zoom and is joined by an ultra-wide camera, Portrait camera, and LiDAR scanner on the back for more robust AR applications.

Other features from the concept include a few features we’re likely to see, such as the A14 chip, 2 hours more battery life and maybe reverse charging. There’s no indication yet that Apple will ditch the Face ID notch for a camera under the display. It’s also very unlikely that the 2020 iPhones will adopt USB-C, although we wish they would.

Full details of the 2020 iPhone lineup are expected to be revealed later this fall. A recent report from Bloomberg claims Apple will release two cheaper handsets to replace the iPhone 11. Apple also allegedly plans to come out with an iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. A new A14 chip, improved cameras, 5G support, smaller Face ID notch and new body are expected to be among the raft of new features.
