Apple has finally taken the wraps off its 2020 iPhone models. The iPhone 12 series is made up of four different models – iPhone 12, 12 Mini, as well as the more premium iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max.
Apple iPhone 12
The iPhone 12 sports a 6.1-inch OLED display with a resolution of 2532×1170 pixel, 460 ppi and 1200 nits of peak brightness. The display supports on 60Hz refresh rate and in terms of the design, it retains the wide notch iPhones have been known for since the iPhone 12. Apple says the display is covered by what it calls Ceramic Shield, co-developed with Corning. The Ceramic Shield glass is touted as having “4 times better drop performance” and is “tougher than any smartphone glass”.
The phone is powered by Apple’s A14 Bionic chipset which has a six-core CPU made up of two powerful and four power-efficient cores. The processor comes with a total of 11.8 billion transistors which is about 40% more than the A13 Bionic from last year. It teams up with a quad-core GPU.
The photography aspect is one area where Apple iPhones have been renowned to perform well. The iPhone 12 features a new wide camera having a brighter aperture of f/1.6. The wide camera promises up to 27% better light capture. There is also an ultrawide shooter onboard. The sensors come with Apple’s new Smart HDR 3 with improved white balance, texture and saturation. In addition, the dual rear cameras and the selfie shooter are capable of shooting Night Mode images.
Just as was revealed recently, the iPhone 12 will ship without the Earpods and charger. The retail box is also quite tiny as it uses fewer materials and holds just the iPhone and a USB-C to Lightning cable. The retail box is made entirely from biodegradable materials.
The iPhone 12 comes in an array of colours namely Blue, Green, Product Red, White and Black. The device starts at $799 and will be up for pre-orders from October 16 while it will start shipping on October 23.
Apple iPhone 12 mini
The iPhone 12 mini also joined the fray and it is fingered as having the potential to end up as the star product among the lot. The iPhone 12 mini moniker paints the picture of a diminutive model but it presents with a 5.4-inch Super XDR OLED screen with a resolution of 2340x1080pixel. The display also comes with 476 ppi and up to 1200 nits of brightness just like the other models in the lineup.
In addition to the display configuration which is similar to the iPhone 12, the iPhone 12 mini also features the same chipset, camera system, wireless charging, IP68 rating and color options as the bigger iPhone 12.
