According to the leak, all four ‌iPhone‌ 12 models will have OLED Super Retina XDR displays and a new hardened "Ceramic Shield" glass screen, and all are capable of shooting Dolby Vision video, offering higher dynamic range.

In addition, all phones will support 5G, but only the U.S. models of the ‌iPhone‌ 12 lineup will reportedly support the faster mmWave 5G band.

Other notable details in the leak include a "Smart Data Mode" for ‌iPhone‌ 12 models that switches between 4G and 5G depending on bandwidth needs to save power; ‌iPhone‌ 12 photography improvements for Deep Fusion and Night Mode; a "47 percent larger sensor" on the iPhone 12 Pro Max compared to the ‌iPhone‌ 12 Pro; and a special "Expansive" super wide angle capability for the Max model.

The leak also includes pricing and launch date details on the rumored HomePod Mini as well as an alleged "MagSafe" iPhone 12 case and two wireless chargers. Curiously, the leak doesn't mention Apple's rumored Tile-like "AirTags" accessories or "AirPods Studio" headphones, however.

According to AppleTrack, the leak source "Kang" has a reliable track record, and has accurately predicted several of Apple's WWDC and September event announcements this year, including the iPhone SE price, the hand-washing feature for Apple Watch, and the price and features of the new iPad Air.

Is anyone else a little bummed to have to buy the big phone in order to get the best camera?

You know the info is real because this leaker Kang is so humble.

He has an extremely good track record, but says at the end of his post, these are just rumors. :) Compare that to some leakers on Twitter who would die on a hill even after being proven wrong.

This guy is 97.8% accurate according to AppleTrack. So, I guess that's the real thing.

If I can’t get a nice telephoto lens on the mini, I’d rather just get a bumpless wide angle than some big protruding square with two wide angle lenses.
