  • Frequent leaker Evan Blass has posted official-looking iPhone 12 series renders.
  • The images also show off the iPhones in various colorways.
  • All four models sport sizeable notches.

The Apple iPhone 12 series is due to be unveiled later today, and we’ve already seen a few apparent leaks in recent weeks. The info drops aren’t stopping yet though, as the biggest leak yet may have dropped.

Veteran leaker Evan Blass has posted official-looking renders of the iPhone 12 series, showing four models in various colorways. The four models, as previously leaked, are the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max.

The iPhone 12 Mini is available in black, blue, green, red, and white. Check out the phone in its various color options below.

The standard iPhone 12 shares the Mini’s colorways of black, blue, green, red, and white. It also looks like the two phones share dual rear cameras, which we’re expecting to be standard and ultra-wide shooters.

Check out the standard iPhone 12 renders below.

Meanwhile, the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max are set to share the same blue, gold, graphite, and silver colorways. Check out the iPhone 12 Pro renders below.

The iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max continue the triple rear camera trend established by the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. We can also make out a smaller sensor in the lower right-hand corner of the camera housing. This could be a 3D ToF or LiDAR sensor for more accurate depth effects and augmented reality capabilities.

You can view the gallery below for Blass’s renders of the Pro Max variant.

It’s also interesting to note that all four models sport relatively wide notches that are ostensibly for 3D face unlock. We’re really hoping Apple

This story is part of Apple Event, our full coverage of the latest news from Apple headquarters.

Apple’s next iPhone may come in blue, according to a last-minute rumor from well-known device leaker Evan Blass, who posted that tidbit to the internet shortly before the company’s digital event, being held Tuesday at 10 a.m. PT / 1 p.m. ET.

In his post on the app Voice, which pitches itself as an alternative social network to Twitter that authenticates people are real, Blass showed off what appear to be Apple marketing images for the iPhone 12 Pro Max. He said the phones would come in blue, gold, graphite and silver. Apple didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

The new devices, which are being called the iPhone 12 by the Apple community though the company hasn’t confirmed their names, are expected to be announced Tuesday alongside a possible new smaller smartphone, called the iPhone 12 Mini, as well as a a possible new HomePod, among other things.

CNET’s editors will be covering the event live as it happens, and you can follow along here.

Every iPhone 12 feature we expect Apple to announce

The latest leak thickens the plot

At a virtual event on Tuesday, Oct. 13, Apple is expected to reveal the iPhone 12. We’ve heard a lot of rumors about the new phone’s specs, price and potential 5G features, as well as the new phone’s charging capabilities. We expect that the iPhone 12 will feature wireless charging, as every iPhone has integrated that since the iPhone 8. But on Friday, leaker Kang posted on Chinese social media site Weibo that Apple will also introduce a magnetic iPhone MagSafe charger, using the same branding as the magnetic charging cables found in its older MacBook laptops.

The leak shows a new magnetic iPhone case with MagSafe, and two official Apple wireless chargers called MagSafe Charger and MagSafe Duo Charger. One or both of these may have a 15-watt power output. 

The leaked information also shows that the iPhone 12 could have magnetic positioning, which would move the phones to the right position on the charging pad. 

Another area of speculation is whether the new iPhone will have reverse charging — when a phone that can be charged wirelessly can also act as the charging station and be used to charge another device wirelessly. Competitors like the Samsung Galaxy S20, the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra and the OnePlus 8 Pro have wireless and reverse wireless charging, so it’s possible that Apple would take the leap on this, at least on the iPhone 12 Pro models (rumor has it that there will be four different

Apple’s official event is Tuesday, but possible leaks about the next iPhone — widely expected to be called the iPhone 12 — continue to come out. Leaker Kang posted on Chinese social media site Weibo that there will be four models of iPhones that range in price from $699 to $1,099, according to The Verge. 

The models include an iPhone 12 Mini with a 5.4-inch display, which starts at $699 and will be available for preorder on Nov. 6 or 7 with retail availability of Nov. 13 or 14. The 6.1-inch iPhone 12 will start at $799 and be available to preorder on Oct. 16 or 17, with release on Oct. 23 or 24. Both models come with storage options ranging from 64 gigabytes to 256GB. 

The higher-end models include the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro, which costs $999 and include a telephoto lens with 4X optical zoom and a lidar sensor for depth tracking, similar to the new iPad Pros. Preorders reportedly begin on Oct. 16 or 17, with release on Oct. 23 or 24. The 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max will start at $1,099, and include the lidar sensor and a telephoto lens with 5X optical zoom. It’ll be available for preorder on Nov. 13 or 14, with a release date on Nov. 20 or 21. Both models will storage options ranging from 128GB to 512GB. 

Kang also notes that Apple will sell a HomePod Mini for $99, as well as introduce a MagSafe charger, using the same branding as the magnetic charging cables found in its older MacBook laptops.

Last-minute leak showed Apple’s prices and release dates

As we get closer to the Oct. 13 iPhone 12 launch date, the leaks just keep on coming. The latest, from leaker Kang, confirms that Apple will release four phone sizes within the iPhone 12 lineup, all with 5G support. The leak also touched on price and release date, among other details. We’ve summarized all the rumors and leaks below. Until Tuesday’s virtual Apple event (which you can watch live from home starting at 10 a.m. PT, 1 p.m. ET, 6 p.m. BST), all we can do is speculate.

While we usually see new flagship iPhones in September, the COVID-19 outbreak has forced suppliers in China to shut down or operate on limited capacity. This affected not only Apple’s inventory in September, but it may affect sales, too. Apple also closed its US retail stores, though now some have reopened in limited ways. All this culminated with Apple confirming there would be a delay for the iPhone 12, 12 Pro, 12 Pro Max and iPhone 12 Mini.

Despite such disruptions and Apple’s veil of secrecy, there are some things we do know about the iPhone 12. From what we’ve seen of iOS 14 (which is available for download now), we can expect the phone to have software features like widgets, app libraries and picture-in-picture. Unofficial hardware rumors include 3D depth sensing on its rear cameras and new screen sizes. Adding 5G  connectivity would also make sense considering Apple’s main rival, Samsung, launched several 5G phones this year, including the recent Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra, as well as the flagship Galaxy S20 phones. The later
