Apple is all set to launch a 5.4-inch iPhone this year. Apple may be working on a new sleek iPhone. The phone would come with a 5.4-inch display, far smaller than the current iPhone 11 model.
Links to the portable 5.4-inch iPhone have been found in the new iOS 14 beta update. In addition to the easy-to-carry iPhone, the beta version also confirms the availability of the Display Zoom feature.
This helps users to zoom in on smaller iPhone models without disturbing the experience of the app.
For example, Display Zoom enables the 5.8-inch iPhone 11 Pro interface on the larger 6.5-inch iPhone 11 Pro Max. As the name suggests, it enlarges text, keys and icons.
Display Zoom Feature:
The iOS 14 beta three developers introduces the Display Zoom feature. Including a new, smaller display of 960 x 2,079 pixels that is designed to zoom in on iPhone X. And newer 5.8-inch iPhone versions, but fits precisely on a 5.4-inch screen, 9to5Mac says.
The function adjusts the entire device interface to the size of what’s on the smaller iPhone model to give some magnification. It wasn’t accessible for the iPhone X, iPhone XS, and iPhone 11 Pro. However, it was a piece of the iPhone XS Max and iPhone 11 Pro Max so far.
The new report is pretty much in line with what Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo expected last year.
Kuo said Apple would announce a sleek 5.4-inch iPhone with OLED screen and 5 G connectivity in 2020. Earlier this year, he added that the phone would start mass production in September, just before the official launch of the iPhone 12 series.
Or, of course, it wouldn’t be prudent to speculate on the production of the 5.4-inch iPhone model (aka iPhone 12) only by taking a cue from the Display Zoom extension. Nonetheless, recent rumours indicated the introduction of the latest iteration in the next sequence to be released this year.
Apple iPhone 12 Pro edition:
The Apple iPhone 12 Pro edition is expected to feature a 6.1-inch Samsung OLED Super Retina XDR 10-bit colour depth display.
It will have 6 GB of RAM and will also be available in three capacity variants – 128 GB, 256 GB and 512 GB. The phone is supposed to have a stainless steel frame, a new A14 chip, and a triple camera with a LiDAR sensor on the rear.
Another recent change in the Apple iPhone 12 series is that the new iPhones do not feature a bundled charger or a wired Apple EarPod in the phone box. It is said to be done to minimize costs as well as to reduce e-Waste by extending the shelf life of previous iPhone chargers that people in the community are already using.
So far we know that the entry-level iPhone 12 is supposed to come with a 2.227mAh battery. Besides, reports say that both LTE and 5G models will be available with a base LTE version starting at $549. It expects to feature a dual-camera configuration like the iPhone 11. Also a flat-frame like the rest of the iPhone 12 series.
The iPhone 12 lineup is supposed to use Semco and Sunny Optical lenses. It offers better performance and enhanced autofocus performance. According to the same report, the first iPhones with periscope telephoto sensors are scheduled to launch in 2022. The iPhone 12 series will be released on 8 September.
