The leak: iPhone 12 models will include improved software alongside upgraded camera modules, according to Kang 康总 (97.8% accurate).

  • Enhanced Smart HDR will be upgraded to 3rd-generation Smart HDR
  • Deep fusion and night mode are also improving year-over-year

Our take: The physical camera upgrades are half of the story, but these improvements are equally exciting. Smart HDR has been amazing since it launched, so I’m curious to see what a 3rd generation version will bring.
