Leaks for Apple’s upcoming iPhone 12 lineup have been popping up for quite some time now. A newly leaked clip claims to showcase the main chassis for the new iPhone 12 Pro and this arguably looks more trustworthy than the previous leaks about the upcoming phone.
Prolific leaker Every Apple Pro just published a 5-second video showing allegedly the official chassis of the iPhone 12 Pro. It shows the inner panel, the sides, and the back of the phone, which shows evidence of a LiDAR camera system, and a new position for the SIM slot.

Another thing the alleged iPhone 12 Pro part from the video seems to get right is the cut-out for both the wireless charging coil and the new magnet positioning system, for charging alignment.
Here it is! Official iPhone 12 Pro chassis leak. Confirms mostly same camera with new LiDAR placement, flat sides, magnet cutouts & smart connector-like 5G antenna? This seems to confirm the 6.1 Pro model will get LiDAR too. October can't come soon enough. pic.twitter.com/YifSX7SWxh

Unfortunately, the video clip does not show a whole assembled phone here as It is missing its display. This leaves some unanswered questions regarding the allegedly smaller display notch, as well as 120Hz refresh rate. Furthermore, the video does not show the top or bottom of the iPhone, so there is no confirmation of a Lightning or USB-C porthole.
With no internals present, there is not any additional information on 5G connectivity either. Currently, industry sources suggest that all upcoming iPhone models will have Sub-6 5G support, but only the 12 Pro Max will have enough room to fit the extra antennas that are needed to handle the high-frequency signal.
Leading up to the release of the iPhone 12, it’s heavily speculated that the Cupertino tech giant has been developing four models for the upcoming iPhone 12 lineup. Based on previous reports, the tech giant is likely to announce a 5.4-inch model, two 6.1-inch devices, and a 6.7-inch variant.
The tech giant could also include new camera modes on the higher-end smartphone models, allowing them to shoot 4K video at 120 and 240 frames per second. The new camera modes are reportedly referenced in iOS 14.
Although the company has already confirmed a special event for next Tuesday, Bloomberg suggests that the September event will only include iPad and Apple Watch details, with iPhone 12 coming later in October.
