A Chinese Weibo account going by the name "Kang" this morning posted allegedly accurate information for every product set to be announced at the upcoming Apple event on October 13, including details on the full iPhone 12 lineup.

According to the leak, all four iPhone 12 models will have OLED Super Retina XDR displays and a new hardened "Ceramic Shield" glass screen, and all are capable of shooting Dolby Vision video, offering higher dynamic range.

In addition, all phones will support 5G, but only the U.S. models of the iPhone 12 lineup will reportedly support the faster mmWave 5G band.

Other notable details in the leak include a "Smart Data Mode" for iPhone 12 models that switches between 4G and 5G depending on bandwidth needs to save power; iPhone 12 photography improvements for Deep Fusion and Night Mode; a "47 percent larger sensor" on the iPhone 12 Pro Max compared to the iPhone 12 Pro; and a special "Expansive" super wide angle capability for the Max model.

The leak also includes pricing and launch date details on the rumored HomePod Mini as well as an alleged "MagSafe" iPhone 12 case and two wireless chargers. Curiously, the leak doesn't mention Apple's rumored Tile-like "AirTags" accessories or "AirPods Studio" headphones, however.

According to AppleTrack, the leak source "Kang" has a reliable track record, and has accurately predicted several of Apple's WWDC and September event announcements this year, including the iPhone SE price, the hand-washing feature for Apple Watch, and the price and features of the new iPad Air.

Does no mmWave 5G support outside the US imply a hardware variation or is it just disabled through software? It would be extremely annoying for such expensive devices that some keep for years to not be able to support it everywhere.

The overall lineup is extremely underwhelming compared to last year's models although the increased storage capacities on the base models are very welcome. We're basically having the same (overall) form factor and huge notch for 3 years now...

You know the info is real because this leaker Kang is so humble.

He has an extremely good track record, but says at the end of his post, these are just rumors. :) Compare that to some leakers on Twitter who would die on a hill even after being proven wrong.

need a new phone to replace my X, and go for the Mini - but then I have to wait longer. Or, go for the more expensive bigger size. 🤔

Does anyone know if the Apple store allows for returns of iphones? If I buy 1 small and 1 big? Can I return a used iPhone when bought from the Apple Store?
