Apple announces iPhone 12 with 5G connectivity and OLED display

by Johnson Daniel

Apple launched the iPhone 12 device alongside the iPhone 12 mini in a virtual event. The iPhone 12 possesses similar features to its predecessor as the device features a bigger Super XDR OLED display of the same 6.1-inch diagonal and a much higher 2532x1170px resolution (460 pixels per inch). Apple advertises 1200 nits of peak brightness, matching the Pro models. iPhone 12

The screen has a standard refresh rate of 60Hz and the same old notch. What has improved is the glass covering the display. Apple calls it Ceramic Shield, and it was co-developed with Gorilla Glass maker Corning.

The phone is 11% thinner, 16% lighter, and 15% smaller in volume than the iPhone 11. Much of that size reduction is down to the flat sides of the iPhone 12.

This device shares the same display technology, the chipset, the camera system, wireless charging, IP68 rating, and color options as the iPhone 12 mini.

Apple will offer the iPhone 12 in 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB storage options in Blue, Green, Black, White, and Product Red colors. Pre-orders for the iPhone 12 will open on October 16, with shipments beginning on October 23, starting at $799.
