Iphone 12 Vs iPhone 12 Mini
[email protected] posted a topic in UpdatesApple released the newest iPhones on 13 October 2020, iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini, with good features at competitive prices. The iPhone 12 and 12 mini are perfect for all those who don’t need pro camera functionality alongside the more costly iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. All the model iPhones feature Super Retina XDR OLED screens with the exception of the Face ID and the small bezels around the edge this year. This is the first edge-to – edge model. There’s no difference in show quality between the regular iPhone 12 models and the Pro models. iPhone 12 Display: The 5.4-inch iPhone 12 is 2430 x 1080 with an inch resolution of 476 pixels and the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 of 2532 x 1170 resolution has an inch resolution of 460 pixels. Displays offer a 1200 nit high luminosity HDR support, Big Color to enjoy vibrant, true colours, Haptic Touch for input and True Tone for a more realistic viewing experience to match the colour temperature. Apple overhauled the design of the iPhone 12 lineup this year, introducing flat edges that are a departure from the rounded edges of prior models and are similar in design to the iPad Pro. The front of the iPhone is protected by a new Ceramic Shield cover that replaces the standard cover glass. Apple says the Ceramic Shield is infused with nano-ceramic crystals and offers 4x better drop performance. iPhone 12 iPhone 12 Pro 5G speed. A14 Bionic, the fastest chip in a smartphone. All‑new design. Ceramic Shield. LiDAR Scanner for more realistic AR. A Pro camera system optimized for low light — and pushed even further on iPhone 12 Pro Max. Both iPhones 12 models support 5 G networking this year for quicker download and upload, improved video uploading, better games, and 1080p facetime calls in higher resolution. 5 G service is available globally, but in the United States only iPhone 12 smartphones support mmWave 5 G, the fastest possible 5 G technology. The slower but more broadly available Sub-6GHz 5 G access is limited to the iPhone 12 models sold in other countries. Even for the heavily populated regions of the US, 5 G rates can be as high as 4 Gbps. If 5G is not present and to maintain the battery life with 5G, a Smart Data Mode is supported when 5G speeds aren’t needed, then the Smart Data Mode returns to an LTE connection. The WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0 support iPhone 12 and 12 mini, plus an U1 Ultra Wideband Chip for spatial awareness and compatibility with other U1, like the HomePod Mini computer. iPhone 12 Chipset: There’s a new A14 processor within the iPhone 12 models, and it is the first processor in the mobile industry designed on a 5-nanometer process for performance and quality improvements. Apple claims the A14 is 50% faster than the fastest rival handset chips with the 6-core CPU and the 4-core GPU. The A14 chip contains a 16-core neural engine with an 80% boost in machine training performance. The iPhone 12 and 12 mini are similar to the Pro models in most respects, but the camera is a major differentiating factor. The iPhone 12 and 12 mini have a simplified and more sophisticated dual-lens camera setup while Pro versions have a three-lens camera setup using a LiDAR Scanner and other balls and whistles. iPhone 12 Camera: The iPhone 12 can capture 30-fps Dolby Vision HDR video like its iPhone 12 Pro model , which allows the capture, edit, and direct sharing of movie-grade videos right on the iPhone. It also allows 4 K video capture at up to 60fps. There’s enhanced cinematic video stabilisation and a Night mode Time-Lapse feature, along with Dolby Vision selfie videos using the TrueDepth camera. iPhone 12 Price, Pre Orders, and Release Date The 6.1-inch iPhone 12 will be available for pre-order on Friday, October 16 with a launch to follow on Friday, October 23.
