Leaker Sonny Dickson has today shared several images depicting what he claims are dummy units of Apple's upcoming iPhone 12 lineup.
Images of iPhone dummy units usually appear every year, just a few months ahead of Apple's usual September-October launch timeframe. They are usually based on CAD schematics sourced from the Chinese supply chain, much like the molds leaked last week. Such dummies are often used to aid case-makers before the official reveal.
The images mostly conform with details we already know, with the device sporting an iPad Pro-style design with flat edges. Apple is expected to launch four iPhones this year, across three sizes of 5.4, 6.1, and 6.7 inches. Dickson's images give a clear comparison of the three new sizes.
The camera setups, however, do not mirror what is expected. Previous leaks have largely agreed that the two iPhone 12 models in 5.4 and 6.1 inches will have dual camera setups, while the two iPhone 12 Pro models in 6.1 and 6.7 inches will have triple camera setups. It is also of note that the dummies are missing the LiDAR scanner, expected on at least the 6.7 inch model.
Dickson cautions that the notch and camera layouts in these images should not be heavily relied upon. The are believed to offer clear depictions of what the upcoming chassis design may look like across the various new sizes.
Here are the first iPhone 12 dummies: 3 sizes (5.4, 6.1, 6.7). Flat edges, 3 cameras on the bump like recent molds. Notch, cameras should not be taken 100%, but chassis promising. pic.twitter.com/fcw3bLhVEF

The only thing I see going for it here is the boxy 4-esque design we have been wishing for years and the size options.
I have never understood the fascination with curved edges, I disliked them so much! at least Apple did not take it to the extreme as some Samsung devices that were absurdly curved.
Too thick? I would make them even 1 mm thicker if that meant more battery life and less of a camera bump. Bring them thic iPhones!
And now that Jonny is gone, every design decision is Mr. Cook’s fault (or, as they call him here, “Timmy?”)
