Another year, another lineup of Apple iPhones. Apple has unveiled its latest iPhone 12 series of smartphones, which are yet again touted to be the company’s best phones yet. However, this year’s lineup is a bit different as it consists of not only the regular iPhone 12 but also an iPhone 12 mini. Additionally, there’s the iPhone 12 Pro and the iPhone 12 Pro Max for people who need a bigger display and better cameras. Here’s what you need to know about the iPhone 12 lineup.
iPhone 12 gets a miniature version this year
This year, Apple has decided to bring a smaller version of the iPhone 12. No, we’re not talking about the SE 2020 but the rather unexpected iPhone 12 mini. Both phones, the iPhone 12 and the iPhone 12 mini are similar in every aspect, apart from display size and form factor. The iPhone 12 features a 6.4-inch Super Retina XDR display and the 12 mini gets the same panel, but it measures 5.4-inches in size. Their display also gets ‘Ceramic Shield’ protection, of which they claim to be up to 4 times more durable than previous generation display glasses.
As mentioned, the phones are similar in almost all aspects. They both run on the latest A14 Bionic processor. Apple has maintained a tighter grip on its chip manufacturing, and it goes to show in the 5nm fab process, which was used to manufacture the chip containing over 11 billion transistors. Additionally, the phones will be available in 64GB, 128GB and 256 GB internal storage variants.
With a flat-edge design for the display and an aerospace-grade aluminium chassis, the phones feature a dual-camera setup on the back. It consists of a 12MP primary camera and a 12MP ultra-wide-angle camera with 120-degree field of view. On the front is a 12MP camera that still supports FaceID.
