No longer happy with the circulating dimension comparisons between the rumored 5.4″ iPhone 12 and the original iPhone SE devices, MacRumors discussion board useriZactook matters into his acquire hands and purchased his acquire 5.4″ dummy mannequin to provide extra detailed dimension comparisons between the original iPhone SE and iPhone 7 and the rumored 5.4″ iPhone 12.
iZacand others in the thread are looking towards the 5.4″ iPhone 12 as potentially replacing their original iPhone SE (4-inch display) as a one-handed tool. Overall, he feels that he can get venerable to the small dimension difference with the upcoming tool:
From handling it I can say it does really feel appreciate a bit extra of a stretch than the SE, which excellent nestles very comfortably in my hand. BUT, although it’s nearer to the 7, I may display that it feels a lot extra manageable because the square profile and flat facet helps you to actually grip the tool.
iZacfound that the rumored 5.4″ iPhone is about 6mm wider than the original iPhone SE and about 3mm narrower than the iPhone 7:
Posthaste takeaway is it’s ~6mm wider than the iPhone SE and ~3mm thinner than the iPhone 7 that I’ve scaled it against. This lines up with the CAD drawings I previously drew based on the leaked resolution, which I calculated as 2.8mm thinner than the iPhone 7. The spherical profile on the 7 makes it appear thinner in images. it‘s also stacked on the bottom so doesn’t abet with viewpoint. I venerable the portrait camera to attempt to lower that factor.
iZacalso approximates the upcoming 5.4″ iPhone 12 to be approximately 1mm thicker than the SE.
The iPhone 12 is rumored to be released this fall in three diverse sizes. Rumors indicate we’ll gawk a 5.4-inch iPhone, a 6.7-inch iPhone, and two 6.1-inch iPhones. 5.4 inches is smaller than the fresh iPhone 11 Pro (5.8 inches), whereas 6.7 inches is larger than the fresh iPhone 11 Pro Max (6.5 inches).
