September of every year is an exciting time for iPhone lovers and this year will not be an exception. The reports say that Apple is going to release 4 new iPhones in 2020 and it promises some amazing updates. Apple is also going to improve the design and that is the focus of this article. iPhone leaks are harder to come by than their Android counterparts but that hasn’t stopped people from creating concept designs. As the launch dates get closer, the speculations increase and if you are looking for iPhone 12 concept designs, then you have come to the right place.
Apple has a reputation of sticking to a design until it gets stale and it’s nice to hear that they are coming up with a new design. Concept designs may not be a one-to-one representation of the final device, but they do give us a glimpse of what the phone can look like. They can also give us wild ideas of what we might want from an iPhone in the future!
12 iPhone 12 Concept Designs
1. Ming-Chi-Kuo’s Predictions
Ming-Chi-Kuo is one of the most reliable people on the planet when it comes to iPhone leaks. His predictions have been confirmed on several occasions and his words should be taken into consideration this time too. The renderings show an iPhone 12 that looks like a lovechild between the beloved iPhone 4 and iPhone X. The rounded sides have been replaced with sleek flat edges that look really good in my opinion.
The people who wanted the notch to disappear this time around will be a little disappointed. However, the display has been further pushed to the edges and the notch does seem smaller. The actual iPhone 12 Pro is probably going to look like this.
The leaks also predict a bigger battery, a new LiDAR camera, and a 3x telephoto lens. It also predicts the Pro Motion display like the one found on the iPad and 5G. The former will only be found on the Pro models.
2. Letsgo Digital’s Design
This is very similar to the previous design, but it sports a shorter notch as opposed to a narrower one. Personally, I’m not a fan but I can see why people would prefer this over the narrow notch. The bezels also seem thinner and would look great in real life.
3. Yasser Farahi’s Design
Yasser Farahi’s design looks like the iPhone 12 that I would have loved. The red iPhone with flat sides and the edge-to-edge display looks incredible although I would miss FaceID. Is Apple going to move away from facial recognition and go for an under the display fingerprint scanner? I don’t think it will do that this year but we never know what the future may hold.
4. Tech Shockin’s Design
The Youtuber Tech Shockin designed a concept iPhone 12 that looks wildly different from everything we’ve seen so far. It looks more like a Samsung flagship than an iPhone. It has a curved display and the notch is replaced by a hole-punch camera. You can check out the full design in the original video.
5. iPhone 12 Flip Concept by iOS Beta News
The flip phone concept has gotten a lot of popularity in recent times thanks to the Samsung Galaxy Fold and Moto Razr. While I don’t think that Apple is going to jump on the foldable phone bandwagon any time soon, the iPhone Flip concept does look impressive.
The design shows off a foldable iPhone with a mini screen to access recent notifications.
6. iPhone 12 by TS Designer
This design looks like something from the future. It looks similar to the Mi Mix Alpha made by Xiaomi and looks incredibly cool with the seamless display. Impractical, but cool nonetheless.
7. iPhone 12 Flip by bat.not.bad
Another Flip concept, this one looks cooler but a lot more impractical than the one designed by iOS Beta News. However, I would definitely buy this thin and foldable device if it was real (Phones are too big for pockets nowadays).
These are some of the best iPhone 12 concept designs that I’ve seen. Are you excited about the iPhone 12? Which one is your favorite design? Did I miss a concept that you love? I would love to know your thoughts in the comments section down below.
