iPhone 12

This is the first iPhone Apple unveiled in the virtual live event. This 5G phone will give you iPhone 4 vibe, seriously. It has that characteristic flat sides we remember from iPhone 4, 5 and SE. The front of the phone is covered with what apple calls “Ceramic Shield”, a material designed by Corning.

The display on iPhone 12 is a huge upgrade as compared to iPhone 11. Now we are seeing an FHD panel on non-pro models as well. It’s a 6.1″ OLED Super Retina XDR display with an incredible contrast ratio of 2,000,000:1. The display’s peak brightness is whooping 1200 nits as well. But, it just has a regular 60Hz refresh rate, which is disappointing considering today’s standards. Nevertheless, this is truly an amazing display with very good contrast to enjoy your content.

Talking about the performance, there is the latest new Apple A14 Bionic chipset with 5G capability, with 3.5GBPS download speed on the day to day usage. It’s the world’s first 5nm processor, which improves battery life. It’s Hexa-core CPU with 4-core GPU. This is the fastest processor till now, on any smartphone. This year’s iPhones have improved Neural Engine and AI performance.

It has dual camera setup, as in iPhone 11. The 12MP primary camera has an aperture of f/1.6 with 7-element lens. It has optical image stabilization for better photos and video capturing. The second one is an ultra-wide lens with f/2.4 aperture and 5-element lens. It has 120 degrees of FOV.

The phone supports wireless charging, lightning charger and no headphone jack (as expected)

iPhone 12 Mini

This is the newest and the only member in “Mini” model of iPhone. It has relatively smaller screen size and smaller form factor overall. A big design change has been made in the body of the phone. The company has gone with flat screen design with square shaped body. The edges are sharp and looks like an iPhone 4 or 5s. Well, this year, all the iPhones have almost the same design. The phone resembles iPhone 12 in every possible way internally and externally, but in a smaller form factor.
