iPhone 12 Sizes Compared with iPhone SE, 7, 8, SE 2, X, 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max [Update]

Apple is planning on launching the iPhone 12 this fall which is rumored to be coming in 3 different sizes: 5.4", 6.1" and 6.7". The middle size (6.1") matches up with the currently shipping iPhone 11, but the other two sizes will be entirely new.

Over the weekend, there was some excitement about how well the new 5.4" ‌iPhone 12‌ compares to the original iPhone SE. Those who have been hoping for a smaller iPhone see the 5.4" model as possible successor to the original ‌iPhone SE‌ in terms of one handed use.

We were able to obtain ‌iPhone 12‌ dummy models that have been circulating in China. The models are based on leaked schematics of the upcoming ‌iPhone 12‌ and so are believed to represent the sizes of the new devices.

We took photos of the models alongside our existing ‌iPhone‌ models to composite this image which shows the relative sizes of various iPhones. Note: the iPhone 11 Pro is essentially equivalent to the ‌iPhone‌ X in size, and the iPhone XR is the same size as the ‌iPhone 11‌ and 6.1" ‌iPhone 12‌.

Update: Although we indicated the 6.1" ‌iPhone 12‌ and 6.1" ‌iPhone 11‌ should be the same size, the ‌iPhone 12‌ version is actually slightly smaller.

It’s still bigger than I’d like, but I appreciate Apple throwing SE fans a bone.

I just hope they don’t hobble the smaller size with fewer features. I never understood the “bigger phone = more premium/professional” concept they’ve been playing up for years now.

There’s a pretty big difference between the new SE and the 5.4: the size of the display. When I went from a 4” to a 4.7” screen I lost one handed usability. But whose thumb has a 5.4” range of motion?

The 5.4” iPhone 12” is going to be only slightly more usable one handed than were the 5.5” Plus models, i.e., not at all.

exactly, what we need is an “edge to edge” phone in a modern iPhone 4/4s size

How would the 6.1 12 be the same size as the 11? The 11 already has bigger bezel than the pro’s because they are lcd. Not only is it supposed to be oled, but it’s supposed to have even thinner bezels than the current pro’s.

I wish the iPhone 12 Pro 6.1? wasn’t bigger than the iPhone X.

I had also hoped they kept the same absolute corner sizes from the iPhone 5 instead of the too large rounded corners from the X.
