Apple iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max officially
Apple not only introduced a new HomePod today, but also four new iPhones. The iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. We have an overview of all the details, prices and pictures of the new iPhones for you.
Apple iPhone 12 (Mini)
The iPhone 12 is once again the device for the big crowd. The smartphone comes with a 6,1-inch Super Retina XDR OLED touchscreen, which has a sharp FullHD+ resolution of around 460 ppi. The iPhone 12 is compared to its predecessor 11 Procent thinner, 15 Procents smaller and a full 16 Procent lighter. The glass on the front and back should also be more stable this year. When it comes to colors, you can choose between black, white, red, blue and green.
It is powered by the A14 Bionic, which we now also use from the iPad Air 4 know. This is currently by far the fastest and most powerful smartphoneProprocessor. This Proprocessor is manufactured using the 5 nanometer process. The CPU should be 50 Procent faster than all the competition. The GPU has also been significantly improved. There is either 64 gigabytes, 128 gigabytes or 256 gigabytes of memory. As usual, no information about the RAM was given.
All iPhones support 5G, which, however, does not yet offer much added value in Germany. However, people in the US are likely to be very impressed by 5G profit.
When it came to the camera, compared to the iPhone 11 not much. We still have a dual camera with a wide-angle and an ultra-wide-angle sensor. The resolutions are 12 megapixels and 12 megapixels. It is said to be a new sensor that can absorb significantly more light. Portrait mode and other similar functions are back on board. "Deep Fusion", the night mode and "Smart HDR" have all improved. Night mode is finally available this year for the ultra-wide-angle camera and front camera.
With the iPhone 12, Apple is introducing a new wireless charging system called MagSafe. As the name suggests, this is a magnetic wireless charger with which up to 15 watts of fast charging is possible.
For the first time, Apple also introduced a mini version. The difference here is the display size, which is only 5,4 inches. The touchscreen is 0,1 inches smaller than the iPhone 8 Plus. Otherwise there are no differences to the larger iPhone 12 in terms of the rest of the equipment.
The Apple iPhone 12 can be pre-ordered from October 16, delivery will start on October 23. On the other hand, the iPhone 12 mini can only be pre-ordered from November 6th, delivery will also start on November 13th. The prices are 799 euros for the mini and 899 euros for the “normal” iPhone 12 in the smallest memory version with 64 GB.
Apple iPhone 12 Pro (Max)
Last year there was one for the first time Proversion of the iPhone and this year is no different. The Super Retina XDR displays measure 6,1 inches and 6,7 inches diagonally, making both smartphones slightly larger than their respective predecessors. The resolutions here are also FullHD+ with OLED. As already suspected, the displays unfortunately do not offer a smooth refresh rate of 120 Hertz. The slightly more angular frame is made of stainless steel this year and the back is made of matte glass. They are also protected against the ingress of water and dust according to IP-68.
Also in the Promodels is powered by the A14 Bionic. Instead of the 64 gigabyte version, there is a version with 512 gigabytes of memory. Information about the main memory was not mentioned here either.
As we already know from last year, we also get the Apple iPhone 12 Pro (Max) a triple camera consisting of a wide-angle, an ultra-wide-angle and a telephoto sensor. In addition, Apple also installed the LIDAR sensor for AR applications, as we already have in this year's iPad Pro saw. Among other things, this improves the autofocus in low light. The resolutions of the cameras are 12 megapixels, 12 megapixels and 12 megapixels.
So on paper, everything is the same as last year, but things are said to have improved in practice. While the iPhone 12 Pro Max offers a 2,5x optical zoom, you have to settle for the smaller one Pro only be satisfied with a 2x optical zoom. So the zoom should be noticeably better, at least with the Max model. In addition, the main sensor is in the Pro Max whole 47 Procent larger than in the previous year and thus significantly more light should be able to be absorbed. At the end of the year there will also be a feature AppleProRAW unlocked. This makes the images even sharper and generally even better.
The Apple iPhone 12 Pro costs 1.149 euros and starts delivery on October 23. The pre-order starts earlier, namely on October 16th. The starting price of Pro Max is 1.249 euros and is available from November 13th, pre-orders are possible on November 6th.
