Apple has just announced iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. Featuring the same 6.1-inch display size as the iPhone 11 it is making the transition from an LCD screen to OLED. The phone has flat aluminum sides. The iPhone 12 will come in black, white, blue, red, and green and pricing starts at $799. Variants: 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB. Apple’s latest iPhone is powered by the company’s new A14 Bionic processor, “up to 50 percent faster” than the leading chips in Android smartphones.
The iPhone 12 has two cameras housed in a matte glass squircle, which makes for a nice contrast with the rest of the glossy back panel. The iPhone 12’s OLED screen has a peak brightness of 1200 nits and supports Dolby Vision, HDR 10, and HLG. The glass is coated with what Apple describes as a “ceramic shield” for better durability when dropped. More, water resistance has also been improved. This phone is Apple’s first major foray into 5G cellular technologies. Apple says it has tested 5G performance with 100 carriers across 30 countries to ensure a smooth launch. Cases, charges, and other accessories snap onto the iPhone 12 magnetically. Apple is introducing a dual wireless charger. Alongside the 6.1-inch iPhone 12, Apple also introduced a smaller 5.4-inch model that it calls the iPhone 12 mini. Preorders start this Friday, October 16, and the iPhone 12 will be available on October 23rd.
