An image showing the design of the camera part of iPhone 12 Pro has been released by the person who is sending leak information. The triple camera is combined with a LiDAR scanner.

It is rumored that the iPhone 12 Pro, the top model of the iPhone 12 series in the fall of 2020, will be equipped with a LiDAR scanner, similar to the iPad Pro, and will greatly advance its augmented reality (AR) performance.
Mr. Komiya (@komiya_kj), who is sending information such as the announcement schedule of iPhone 12 and the specifications of MacBook equipped with Apple Silicon, about the arrangement combining the triple camera mounted on iPhone 11 Pro with the LiDAR scanner, released the image on Twitter I am.
The layout of the iPhone12 Pro triple camera, which is slightly larger than the iPhone11 Pro, is the same as the iPhone11 Pro.
The microphone under the ultra-wide-angle lens on the iPhone 11 Pro has moved to the side of the LED flash, and the LiDAR scanner fits in the open space.

By the way, the layout of iPhone11 Pro’s camera, LED flash, and microphone is as follows.
Is this arrangement reasonable for 3D recognition?
The iPhone 12 Pro camera seems stable with the triple camera and LiDAR scanner in the four corners of the square frame.
Other Twitter users criticized that “those who think that they are arranged in a rectangle do not understand the 3D space arrangement,” in response to a tweet that they thought they were arranged in the four corners. As such, this arrangement may be suitable for combination with a LiDAR scanner capable of highly accurate 3D space recognition performance.
Anyone who thinks the cameras are in a square arrangement doesn’t understand how 3D space arrangement works, or never looks inside an iPhone.

Will it be released in October? Apple executives declare that they are several weeks behind the average year
In the fall of 2020, the iPhone 12 series is expected to be released with a total of 4 models, the top models iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max, and the standard models iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Max.
On July 30, local time, Apple’s quarterly earnings report said Chief Financial Officer Luca Maestri said the next iPhone would be delayed for several weeks.
Therefore, it is expected that the iPhone12 Pro will be in store in October.
