As Apple approaches the expected launch of its flagship range of iPhone 12, leaks and rumors have been flowing and fast. The latest comes from a video from Front Page Tech, which claims to have a pretty clear idea of how the new phone will look and perform.
The video claims to show hands-on time with a PVT (Product Validation Test) version of the iPhone 12 Pro Max. PVT is a particularly advanced stage in the process of manufacturing a new phone and the next important stage is actual mass production.

One of the trending topics in the recent iPhone 12 leaks has been the inclusion of LiDAR (Light Sensing and Range) and this new video seems to further confirm that it will be included in at least some iPhone 12 models. You can check out our article which delves into the usefulness of LiDAR, but would shortly allow for more AR cheating as seen on iPad Pro (2020).
There is also more information on the potential of a 120Hz refresh rate for the new iPhone 12 screens. Today’s video includes images of a previously leaked setup screen with an option to “enable a high refresh rate”. as well as the ability to enable or disable the “adaptive refresh rate”, which “will alter the refresh rate from 120Hz to 60Hz based on the content displayed on the screen”.
The leaked video contains extended footage of the iPhone 12 Pro Max screen, as the leaker navigates through the settings and enables the advanced refresh rate option. This footage also shows the notch on the unit, which is the same size as its predecessor, the iPhone 11.
It’s important to note that these settings are only confirmed as found on the iPhone 12 Pro Max’s PVT model, so there is no 100% guarantee that the feature will ship on the final model or if it will be available on other models.
Our best guess at this stage is that iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max will feature 120Hz displays, while iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Max will have normal 60Hz displays.
Some other noteworthy settings include the ability to record both 4K / 120fps and “4K / 240fps Slow-Mo” footage, allowing for the ability to capture ultra-high-resolution footage at a silky smooth frame rate.
Apparently Face ID is now more effective, it works to unlock your device faster and from a wider range of angles, the bezels of the device are noticeably thinner and the edges of the device are flat, similar to the design of the iPhone 5.
Of course, these are far from officially released specs, so it takes a pinch of salt to get them, but since there are actual images of what is said to be a PVT model of the iPhone 12 Pro Max, this provides some of the superior. confirms so far that these characteristics are real. We’ll find out, one way or another, on launch day.
