Finally, first iPhone 12 Pro Max leak came. iPhone 12 Pro Max will be the top of the range of the new generation of smart phones that Apple will market next fall and will come with interesting news.

The coronavirus pandemic has affected the production of the technology industry and caused delays in the launch of products. The iPhone 12 is one of them and will arrive “a few weeks” late, according to the company’s head of finance, Luca Maestri.

It is expected that the series will initially be distributed in four versions, plus a fifth that would correspond to the “economic” model and that would arrive later, already in 2021. The iPhone 12 Pro Max will be the flagship of the series and today we receive news from the Apple leaker Jon Prosser who claims to have had access to one of the used prototypes for final validation prior to the start of mass production.

One of the novelties would be the refresh rate of 120 Hz, a feature that we have already seen in large Android terminals (especially focused on games) and also in the new iPad Pro. The documentation speaks of an «adaptive refresh rate of up to 120 Hz”, so it remains to be seen how Apple specifies it in the final version of the device.

Another novelty would come for the cameras, with LiDAR-assisted autofocus. It is a technology that we have also seen as a differentiating element in the most advanced iPad Pro tablets and that allows us to determine the distance from a laser emitter to an object or surface using a pulsed laser beam. The mobile would allow recording video in 4K at 120 FPS and 4K slow motion at 240 FPS.

According to the source, the design of the iPhone 12 Pro Max will be quite flat, a hybrid close to the iPhone 5, but with a steel chassis and slightly curved screen edges. It will also be lighter than the 11 Pro Max, despite the main camera module being 10 percent larger.

On the screen is a 6.7-inch OLED panel and a native resolution of 2788 × 1286 pixels to maintain the pixel density despite the increase in size over the previous version. Another image from the documentation suggests that the iPhone 12 will support 20W fast charging and also wireless fast charging, but for this users will have to buy the charger separately.
