In the early morning of October 14th, Apple once again held a new product launch conference, which brought us brand new iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max. The iPhone 12 series has undergone a bigger change this time, with the appearance returning to a straight-edge design. All series are equipped with A14 bionic chip and support 5G network.
iPhone 12, this model uses an aluminum alloy frame and is equipped with a 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR screen, which effectively reduces the "big black frame" compared to the previous generation. This OLED screen has a higher contrast. The pixel density has reached 460 PPI, the peak brightness is 1200 nits, and it supports Dolby Vision, HLG, HDR10 and other display features. The glass panel of the iPhone 12 uses a new material from Corning "Super Porcelain Panel", which increases the iPhone 12's anti-drop performance by 4 times. In terms of colors, iPhone 12 has five colors: black, white, red, green and blue.
The iPhone 12 Pro screen has increased from 5.8 inches in the previous generation to 6.1 inches, with a resolution of 2532×1170 and 460PPI. iPhone 12 Pro Ma has grown from 6.5 inches to 6.7 inches, with a resolution of 2778×1284, 458PPI, and a peak brightness of 1200nits. However, the two products of the iPhone 12 Pro series do not support the high refresh rate function that users are very concerned about. In addition to the new material "Super Porcelain Panel", the two iPhone 12 Pro products also have stainless steel frames. The thickness has dropped from 8.1mm of the previous generation to 7.4mm. Both iPhone 12 Pro models also support 5G networks and are equipped with Apple's latest A14 bionic chip. The iPhone 12 Pro series provides users with four colors, namely silver, graphite, gold and sea blue.
As Apple’s first 5G mobile phone, the iOS system is also optimized for 5G applications and supports the “smart data mode”, which means it automatically switches to 5G when watching videos online and other scenes that require high bandwidth, and switches back to LTE if not necessary. The network effectively reduces the power consumption problem. Through 5G tests conducted by Apple and many operators, it can be seen that under ideal conditions, the new iPhone can achieve a peak downlink rate of 4Gbps under a 5G network.
Compared with last year's iPhone conference, today's iPhone family obviously has one more little brother, and a total of four models have been released. In addition to the iPhone 12 and the flagship Pro series, the main force of shipments, the appearance of the iPhone 12 mini provides users with more choices, and provides users who feel that the iPhone SE is not enough "small screen flagship" to provide a more compact and practical A stronger and more beautiful choice.
