iPhone 12 dummy models based on leaked schematics are in circulation online and in online marketplaces.
Not happy with the circulating size comparisons between the rumored 5.4-inch iPhone 12 and the original iPhone SE models, users of the MacRumors forum iZac took matters into his own hands and bought his own 5.4-inch dummy model to enable more detailed size comparisons between the original iPhone SE and iPhone 7 and the rumored 5.4-inch iPhone 12.
iPhone SE, 5.4 “iPhone 12 model, iPhone 7
iZac and others in the thread see the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 as a potential replacement for the original iPhone SE (4-inch screen) as a one-handed device. Overall, he thinks he can get used to it with the upcoming small size difference Device:
From the handling, I can say that it feels a bit more stretchy than the SE, which simply nestles very comfortably in my hand. BUT, although it is closer to 7, I will find that it feels much more manageable because you can actually grab the device with the square profile and flat side.
iZac found that the rumored 5.4-inch iPhone is about 6 mm wider than the currently shipped iPhone SE and about 3 mm narrower than the iPhone 7:
Quick to take it is ~ 6mm wider than the iPhone SE and ~ 3mm thinner than the iPhone 7 that I scaled it against. This is consistent with the CAD drawings I previously drew based on the leaked resolution, which I calculated to be 2.8mm thinner than the iPhone 7. The round profile on 7 makes it appear thinner in pictures. It’s also stacked on the bottom, so it doesn’t help with perspective. I used the portrait camera to reduce this factor.
iZac The upcoming 5.4 “iPhone 12 is about 1 mm thicker than the SE.
The iPhone 12 is said to be available in three different sizes this fall. Rumor has it that we will see a 5.4-inch iPhone, a 6.7-inch iPhone, and two 6.1-inch iPhones. 5.4 inches is smaller than the current iPhone 11 Pro (5.8 inches), while 6.7 inches is larger than the current iPhone 11 Pro Max (6.5 inches).
iZac posted some additional photos and comments in the original forum thread.
