For the iPhone 12 Pro Max wise, previously we know that Apple will be unveiling a larger screen iPhone. The latest news we have is the iPhone 12 Pro Max will be featuring a 6.68-inch flexible OLED display. This display will be supplied by Samsung Display. It will have a screen resolution of 2778 x 1284 pixels.
For the camera wise, as we predicted it will have an array of three cameras. From the report, it looks like iPhone 12 Pro Max will have a 64MP main camera. The other details for the rest of the cameras do not reveal yet. Besides that, as shown in the EverythingApplePro video, the iPhone 12 Pro Max comes with the LiDAR scanner. At this moment, only the 2020 iPad Pro uses the LiDAR scanner. The LiDAR scanner is mainly used for augmented reality purpose. Over at the front, it comes with the 12MP front-facing camera.
Under the hood, the iPhone 12 Pro Max runs with the new Apple A14 Bionic chip. It also rumoured that it will be equipped with a 6GB of RAM.

The rest are similar to the iPhone 12 Pro Max.
iPhone 12: The smallest iPhone
Obviously, iPhone 12 is the base model in the iPhone 12 series smartphone. The iPhone 12 will be replacing the current iPhone 11.

The iPhone 12 will come in only two storage options which are 128GB and 256GB only. Nevertheless, iPhone 12 is still one of the most powerful smartphones you can purchase for a cheaper price.
iPhone 12 Max: The unexpected iPhone
The unexpected iPhone 12 is going to be the iPhone 12 Max. According to Phone Arena, there are chances of the iPhone 12 Max to replace the iPhone 11.

Under the hood, Apple still continues the same chipset, RAM and storage options. The main difference between the iPhone 12 is the screen resolution and the panel supplier. Rest is still similar to the iPhone 12. At the same, time when we compared with the iPhone 12 Pro, we can say both the iPhone 12 Max and iPhone 12 Pro comes with similar panel size and screen resolution.
