Big iPhone 12 surprise — it could be even smaller than iPhone SE
iPhone 12’s leaked dimensions show that it may be smaller than the new iPhone SE with a full-size display
The iPhone 12 will reportedly come in four sizes, ranging from 5.4 inches all the way up to 6.7 inches, but it’s the smallest model that will likely grab the most attention.
A new video from Filip Koroy of EverythingApplePro — citing a Macotakara leak — says that the new 5.4-inch iPhone 12 will be shockingly compact. In fact, it could redefine the entire small phone category.
As first reported by Forbes, Koroy says “We were completely wrong on the sizing of the 5.4-inch…Actually taking a look at the sizing in reference to the other iPhone sizes, this thing is small.” He goes on to say that the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 “is going to be a ridiculously popular device.”
So why would it be so popular? Imagine a phone that’s smaller than the iPhone SE 2020 that’s almost full screen. For reference, the new iPhone SE measures 5.43 x 2.65 inches, while the iPhone 12 5.4-inch reportedly has dimensions of 5.15 x 2.51 inches. We don’t have the thickness, but we’ve heard that the iPhone 12 is going to be thinner than the iPhone 11.
In order to achieve those dimensions, the 5.4-inch iPhone 12’s display would be narrower and taller than the iPhone SE’s panel, but the former would still be very easy to use with one hand. The difference in aspect ratio would be 19.5:9 for the iPhone 12 compared to 16:9 for the iPhone SE. So the new iPhone 12’s screen would have a ratio that’s closer to the Samsung Galaxy S20 (20:9).
