American tech giant Apple does it again with another major launch this year and this time, it’s the one that everybody has been waiting for – the launch iPhone 12. But get this, there’s not just one version, there are four!
On October 13 2020, Apple introduced the iPhone 12, 12 Mini, 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max. The difference with the latter two lies in the Pro camera features.
So let’s talk about the basics. The iPhone 12, which is 6.1-inch in size, is naturally a successor to the iPhone 11. All the models come with Super Retina XDR OLED displays and there is no difference in quality between the standard and Pro models. The displays offer HDR support with peak brightness of 1200 nits, vivid, true-to-life colors, haptic feedback, and True Tone that alters the colours and brightness on your screen during the evening and early morning hours, for a more natural viewing experience.
Meanwhile, the shape of the new models bears the most obvious difference. Instead of the sleek rounded edges of previous models, the sides are flat, similar to that of an iPad pro, and made with an aerospace-grade aluminium. A ceramic shield cover that’s infused with nano-ceramic crystals replaces the glass cover, and offers four times better drop performance.
At 5.4 inches, the iPhone 12 Mini is reminiscent of the 2016 iPhone SE. It’s perfect for those who prefer smaller phones or like to carry compact purses and has a resolution of 2430x10i80 with 476 pixels per inch.
Aside from better camera features, the iPhone 12 Pro models come with a new A14 chip that’s said to be the first chip in the industry built on a five-nanometre process and offers 80 percent increase in performance. This allows for better gaming efficiency and a long-lasting battery life.
The iPhone 12 Pro features a new seven-element Wide camera with an f/1.6 aperture. It also offers an Ultra Wide camera with a 120-degree field of view and a 52mm telephoto lens, delivering four times the optical zoom. Meanwhile, the iPhone 12 Pro Max also has a seven-element Wide camera with an f/1.6 aperture, but it has a 47 percent larger sensor for an 87 percent improvement in low light.
In terms of connectivity, all four models support 5G for faster downloads, high quality video streaming, and high-definition Face Time calls.
