Geskin created the concept render to visualize the prototype of the 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max. Ben Geskin has revealed several accurate details about unannounced iPhones in the past.

iPhone 12 to have an iPhone 4-like design
Ming-Chi Kuo told investors in a research note earlier this week that the 2020 iPhones would take design cues from the iPhone 4, which had a flat stainless steel frame. The current iPhones have curved frames on all sides. The latest iPad Pros also have flat edges. The upcoming iPhones would have a flat metal frame with a glass back.
According to Kuo, Apple is going back to the iPhone 4-like design to improve the 5G antenna performance. All three models of the 2020 iPhone would feature Qualcomm’s 5G modem for 5G connectivity. Apple has been lagging behind its Android rivals in 5G race.
