5.4 inch iPhone 12 model size compared to original iPhone SE and iPhone 7

Fictitious iPhone 12 models based on leaked schematics have begun to circulate online and in online markets.

Not satisfied with circulating size comparisons between rumored 5.4 “iPhone 12 and original iPhone SE models, user of the MacRumors forum iZac He took matters into his own hands and bought his own 5.4 “dummy model to provide more detailed size comparisons between the original iPhone SE and iPhone 7 and the rumored 5.4” iPhone 12.

iZac and others in the thread are looking at the 5.4 “iPhone 12 as a potential replacement for their original iPhone SE (4-inch screen) as a one-handed device. Overall, you feel like you can get used to the slight difference in size with the next device:

In handling it, I can tell that it feels a bit more stretched than the SE, which just fits very comfortably in my hand. BUT, although it’s closer to 7, I’ll notice that it feels much more manageable because the square profile and flat side allow it to grip the device.

iZac He discovered that the rumored 5.4 “iPhone is approximately 6mm wider than the iPhone SE currently shipping and approximately 3mm narrower than the iPhone 7:

For quick portability, it’s ~ 6mm wider than the iPhone SE and ~ 3mm thinner than the iPhone 7 I’ve scaled it with. This aligns with the CAD drawings I drew previously based on the filtered resolution, which I calculated to be 2.8mm thinner than the iPhone 7. The round profile of the 7 makes it appear thinner in the images. It also stacks at the bottom, so it doesn’t help with perspective. I used the portrait camera to try to reduce that factor.

iZac It also approximates the upcoming 5.4 “iPhone 12 to be approximately 1mm thicker than the SE.

The iPhone 12 is rumored to launch this fall in three different sizes. Rumors indicate that we will see a 5.4-inch iPhone, a 6.7-inch iPhone and two 6.1-inch iPhones. 5.4 inches is smaller than the current iPhone 11 Pro (5.8 inches), while 6.7 inches is larger than the current iPhone 11 Pro Max (6.5 inches).
