Apple is expected to release four new iPhones this year, including two models expected to be called the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max.
While some features will be consistent across all models — like 5G support and OLED displays — others are expected to be exclusive to the Pro phones.
Such features may include a triple-lens camera and refreshed design that resembles the iPad Pro.

It’s not unusual for Apple to release more than one version of its latest iPhone. But this year’s rumored iPhone 12 is expected to come in a whopping four different variants, compared to previous years when Apple would launch two or three versions of its newest smartphone.
Two of those models are expected to be successors to the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. If the reports and rumors so far are to be believed, Apple’s next “Pro” iPhone will have a triple-lens camera like last year’s models, a Lidar scanner like the new iPad Pro, and a refreshed design among other changes. 
Apple typically debut its new smartphones in the fall, although the company said it expects to receive supply of its next-generation iPhones a few weeks later than usual this year because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Here’s a look at what we know about the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max so far based on the latest rumors and reports. 
They will come with slightly larger screens compared to the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro.

Apple is said to be bumping up the screen sizes of its pro-grade iPhones in 2020, according to Kuo as 9to5Mac has reported.
One model will reportedly come in a 6.1-inch size, while a larger version is said to come with a 6.7-inch screen. Bloomberg similarly reported that the most expensive new iPhone will come with a screen that’s slightly larger than that of the current 6.5-inch iPhone 11 Pro Max. 
 
It’ll also reportedly have a triple-camera setup.

Apple will continue to outfit its high-end smartphones with a triple-lens camera, according to reports from Bloomberg and analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
That would indicate that Apple is taking a similar strategy in 2020 as it did with last year’s iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max, which come with a triple lens camera that includes wide-angle, ultra-wide-angle, and telephoto lenses. 
The cheaper models are expected to come with only two cameras, much like the iPhone 11. 
They will probably be around the same price as last year’s iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max.

The introduction of 5G doesn’t necessarily mean we should expect a price increase in the next iPhone. Wedbush Securities analyst Daniel Ives said he expects Apple to keep the pricing for its iPhone 12 Pro models the same as that of last year’s iPhones. That’s particularly noteworthy considering early 5G phone models, especially premium devices, are usually more expensive than non-5G variants.
“Price points will be aggressive as Apple goes after their broader customer base,” Ives said in a previous interview with Business Insider. “Especially in a recession, in a COVID-19 backdrop, they need to make sure they’re hitting all price categories.”
That’s in addition to everything we’re expecting to see across Apple’s entire iPhone 12 lineup, such as:

Apple’s newest mobile processor, which is likely to be called the A14 Bionic if the company upholds its current naming convention
Support for 5G connectivity
No EarPods or power adapter included in the box, according to TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (per MacRumors)
OLED screens, which offer deeper blacks and richer contrast (Apple’s cheaper iPhones like the iPhone 11 currently have LCD screens)
