With great anticipation, Apple has unveiled the iPhone 12 mini phone as the world’s smallest 5G device. The iPhone 12 mini was launched alongside the iPhone 12 device.
iPhone 12 mini is smaller than the 4.7-inch iPhone SE (2020) while featuring a larger 5.4-inch 2340x1080px Super XDR OLED screen with 476 ppi and the same up to 1200 nits of brightness as the rest of the lineup.
The Apple iPhone 12 mini features a new 12MP wide camera with a brighter f/1.6 aperture, promising up to 27% better light capture and an additional 12MP f/2.4 ultrawide shooter. Both inherit Apple’s new Smart HDR 3 with improved white balance, texture, and saturation. Both rear cameras and the selfie camera are now capable of shooting Night Mode images.
Apple’s Bionic 14 chipset powers the device. It has a 6-core (2 powerful and 4 efficient cores) CPU and 4-core GPU and brings the total transistors to 11.8 billion, or about 40% more than the A13 Bionic, powering last year’s iPhones. Apple claims the A14 Bionic is 50% faster in both CPU and GPU than any other smartphone chipset.
The A14 Bionic can deliver 80% faster machine learning than the A13 Bionic with reported support for 11 trillion operations per second, enabling faster performance from Face to unlock to camera operation.
The Apple iPhone 12 mini would be available in Black, White, Red, Green, Blue colors, and pre-order would start from the 12th of November, 2020.
