These people trashing the iPhone's "overated" features are honestly overated themselves.
Most people don't base their new phone's decisions off specs, and that's a fact.
These techies need to get over with this.
I only expect $2000 price points or the SVP Marketing running away from the stage without announcing the price so embarrassed like the Apple SVP Phil Schiller .....

The preorder dates shows a big delay on the pro max series. If the pro is also delayed for the same amount of time, there could be a 120hz on the pro models. But only the max is delayed, means there is a high chance no 120hz on all models.
However if being optimistic a 1/4 chances only the pro max will get the 120 feature, or both pro, due to the staggered release, giving the ic to the pro, then later ramp up the pro max. But do not hope for that, i have a feeling they will save it for the iPhone 12S or whatever 2021.
Then all the talk will be on the 5G - 4G lte feature, whereby they will use software, to use only LTE /4G speeds, and only ram up to 5G when data consumption is required for that so to save battery life.
After that, they will talk about how camera change lives, and the 240hz / 12hz camera, new better night mode .. blah blah blah..
I'd like to expect: Make Minis Great Again! Especially those with Android-OS on it.

No telephoto or normal one make an UW perspective
Any screen size that too OLED less than 6.5 inches (LCD don’t even bother) must sell it for $450 or lesser irrespective of the cameras & SoC...
MrDung, 12 Oct 2020Those phones are probably misused and probably had the battery replaced with a counterfeit one... moreThey are not misused.
Look at the each case.
Most of the times they got a burning sensation in pocket followed by exploding iPhones.
They weren't even near the charger.
Trillion dollar company dishing low quality garbage.
Apple continues to cover these incidents by their mouthpiece outlets like Verge, CNET and Anandtech.

I dont care about anything less then a pro max , go for the max screen size.
Trust me , it can go far beyond 6,7

The IPhone mini is going to be the star, it will sell like hotcakes. People have been crying out for a smaller phone for years!
Kiwi, 12 Oct 2020Try ultrawide and then try panorama . Ultrawide it s ten times betterI'm aware of that. Just saying that as a second camera a telephoto one would be more useful. Digital zoom is no good.

If the Poco X3 NFC can get 120hz in, why can't the iPhone 12 Pro Max? Did you see the prices?
I think the Galaxy S20 FE blows most of them away

Sad part is that it's not just one model but a variety of them.
Trillion dollar company dumping out garbage quality devices.
1) IPhone exploding in 11yr old girls hands - iPhone 6 user Kayla Ramos
2) In December, a three-week-old iPhone XS Max reportedly caught fire while in the back pocket of its owners’ pants, emitting green and yellow smoke while burning his skin.
3) Right as class was starting, my phone started smoking in my pocket. It was a fire," said Hlavaty from Burlington County.
4) New Jersey man says that he is unable to work after his iPhone 5C emitted a popping noise and caused a burning sensation.
5) Exploding' iPhone leaves Sydney man (Gareth Clear) with third-degree burns.
6) Apple sued over 'exploding' iPod Touch. A 15-year-old boy's iPod Touch allegedly exploded in his pocket at school, causing second-degree burns and a lawsuit filed against Apple.
I can go on and on.....but I am sure you get the exploding iPhone comment now.
Apple PR has always been paid enough to cover up these news.
