Apple presented four new iPhone 12s at its keynote today. All the Apple new iPhones including the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro and the iPhone 12 Pro Max come with 5G support.
The new iPhone 12 is equipped with a 6.1-inch XDR OLED display with a resolution of 2,532 x 1,170 pixels. Although the display diagonal is identical to the iPhone 11, the new iPhone 12 is 15 percent smaller, 11 percent thinner and 16 percent lighter than its predecessor. The screen of the more compact iPhone 12 mini measures 5.4 inches and has a resolution of 2,340 x 1,080 pixels. What is new is the coating known as “Ceramic Shield”, which, according to Apple, should protect the device four times better in the event of a fall.
Inside is the new Apple A14 Bionic, the first 5G smartphone SoC with a 5 nm process. According to the manufacturer, it has a 50 percent faster processor that consists of two performance and four efficiency cores. The GPU is 50 percent faster and consists of four cores. The Neural Engine should work 80 percent faster. In addition, all iPhones 12 support the new 5G cellular standard.
Both the Apple 5G iPhone are equipped with a dual camera on the back, which consists of 12 megapixel wide-angle and 12 megapixel ultra-wide angle. Among other things, it offers improved Smart HDR and a night mode. Also new is a magnetic ring on the back called MagSafe, which holds a charger in place magnetically. The iPhone 12 starts at 900USD, the iPhone mini from 800USD. Pre-orders will be possible for the iPhone 12 from October 16, and for the iPhone 12 mini from November 6.
The two new Pro models naturally offer all the essential features of the smaller models – and more. The iPhone 12 Pro also has a 6.1-inch display, the iPhone 12 Pro Max even one with a 6.7-inch diagonal. The special features are to be found mainly on the back, where Apple installs a triple camera. It consists of wide angle, ultra wide angle and telephoto camera (all with Deep Fusion). The iPhone 12 Pro Max also delivers even better pictures in the dark.
It starts with the iPhone 12 Pro with 128 GB from 1499USD on October 16. The iPhone 12 Pro Max is available for pre-order starting November 6th, starting at 1599USD.
