iPhone 12 leak suggests Apple will launch 4 new handsets - including a 'mini'

Apple appears to be on a mission to widen its ever-expanding range of handsets - particularly given that the forthcoming 2020 Apple launch event could reveal up to five new models.

Combining information that’s already been made public alongside new titbits of information obtained from a likely leak, the brand’s forthcoming September launch is set to be impressive.


Alongside the four new handsets which are expected to drop at the brand’s annual September launch event, Apple’s iPhone SE 2 (or iPhone 9 depending on the official name) looks set to drop in March, meaning a total of five phones could surface in 2020.


And judging from a range of composite images created by Jermaine Smit, known as the Concept Creator, the handsets are everything we've come to expect from the tech giant.


According to the leak, the fourth addition to the line-up is said to be the ‘mini’ version of the 2020 iPhone 12 handset - information that LetsGoDigital seems pretty confident about.

The 5.4-inch ‘mini’ iPhone 12 will differ from the expected iPhone SE 2 handset by combining new features, alongside an overall aesthetic that looks far more similar to what’s expected from the iPhone 12 (rather than the SE 2 which draws inspiration from the iPhone 8).


The rest of the line-up is set to follow 2019's offering, with a range of three other models that feature a 6.1-inch iPhone, a 6.1-inch iPhone Pro, and a 6.7-inch iPhone Pro Max.


At a glance there’s not much to separate the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro but dig a little deeper and there are some notable differences.


The iPhone 12 and the iPhone 12 Pro are set to have two and three cameras respectively, with the Pro Max expected to also have three - one of which looks to be a telephoto lens.


And with all four iPhone offerings likely to have 5G as standard, alongside a 120 Hz display, the models are likely to have a price tag that’s equally as impressive.


As to whether these visualisations are an accurate representation of Apple’s final offering? We’ll just have to wait and see.
