After months of waiting, Apple has showcased the next generation of its flagship smartphones, and the products are quite impressive. Based on the latest trends in the market, the Cupertino giant will offer two models with a more affordable price tag and two, which come with additional features but are more costly.
The new line-up stars the iPhone 12 Mini, the iPhone 12, the iPhone 12 Pro and the iPhone 12 Pro Max. Camera arrays are the main difference between the Pro and non-Pro models, but those who don’t need a fancy camera will love the standard models.
A small surprise
The iPhone 12 Mini is a great surprise for those who enjoy a smaller iPhone as it comes with a 5.4-inch panel. Besides screen and battery sizes, there are no differences between the iPhone 12 and the iPhone 12 Mini.
Super Retina XDR OLED displays are available across the entire iPhone 12 range, providing an edge-to-edge look that is interrupted by the presence of a small FaceID notch and ultra-thin bezels. The new panel offers an impressive brightness as well as True Tone, Haptic Touch, and Wide Color technologies.
A new design has been introduced as Apple favors flat edges. On the front, there is a ceramic shield that offers improved resistance against damage, while the rear is covered in glass. Five color choices will be available: blue, red, black, white, and red.
Apple’s A14 Bionic chip comes with a major performance plus as well a 16-core Neural Engine. The Pro versions come with a triple-lens camera setup and a LiDAR scanner, while the non-Pro variants offer a dual-camera setup. MagSafe accessories are making a comeback, and customers will have the option to purchase a MagSafe charger, which offers 15W wireless charging, but the device can also be charged via cable.
Pre-orders will be available from October 16
