A well-known insider and concept author Ben Geskin shared information about one of the prototypes of the iPhone 12. He received information about the device, codenamed D53, from one of his sources, who in the past shared some reliable details about iOS 13.
According to reports, the iPhone 12 prototype has a thin bezel display. At the same time, the screen lacks a cutout for FaceID and a front camera. Where these modules will be “hidden” is not specified.

One of the features of the prototype is the volume mode switch, made in an unusual style. Outwardly, it resembles a switch that was used in older iPad models. For example, in iPad 2.
The source also reports that the prototype is still using the Lightning port. Despite numerous rumors, the Cupertinians have no plans to transfer their smartphones to USB-C yet.
