Apple tomorrow, October 13, will present the new family of iPhone 12 smartphones, the successors to the iPhone 11 family. A feature of the series this year will be that it will be presented on three or four models, and the replenishment will be the iPhone 12 mini with a 5.4″ display. Apple fans appreciate compact devices, but the majority may opt for its extended version.
The renowned analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has published a new note, which suggested that the iPhone 12 with a 6.1″ screen, which is the direct successor of the iPhone 11, breaking the charts, will be a bestseller with a sales share of 40-45%. He found out that Apple purchased 80-85 million components of gadgets versus 75 million for last year’s iPhone 11 at the start, however, circumstances have developed so that the launch period for the iPhone 12 will not be long, so we will not see real demand for the iPhone 12 at the end of the quarter. …
The specialist believes that the key factor in choosing one version or another will be the price, but despite this, the cheapest iPhone 12 mini will not be able to meet the needs of the majority, so it will get 20-25%. As for the expensive iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max, they will occupy 15-20% of the total circulation of the iPhone 12. It is not yet clear which of the four devices will be on sale in October. The final details and prices will be available tomorrow evening.
iPhone 12 series will have faster Face ID, improved zoom and longer battery life
Yesterday, @PineLeaks a series of information about the “finalization and modification” of the upcoming iPhone 12 series. According to him, all the important information about this series is already public. However, there is still some relevant information for leaks. According to the leak, Apple still intends to launch the “dynamic partition algorithm” function, which may make Face ID faster. Due to the smaller size of the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 mini, the width of the bangs will reduce. It will achieve this by arranging the components of the TrueDepth camera system more “tightly”. However, there will be an increase in height.
Furthermore, the new leak believes that all iPhone 12 models will come with significantly better digital zoom capabilities. Apple will achieve this through software enhancements. Also, the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max will have a much better optical zoom.
In addition, there may be “a kind of macro camera” function. The ultra-wide lens aperture on the Pro model may be able to get closer to the subject. However, this is not expected to be the main function. It is speculated that the aperture of the ultra-wide lens will also be increased by up to 35% to improve low-light performance.
As for the battery, PineLeaks believes that there will be at least an hour battery life increase for the Pro Models. The battery in all the upcoming iPhones will be at least 10% higher in terms of size. However, the regular iPhone 12 battery (5.4-inch model) will perform worse than the iPhone 11. This is considering the inclusion of 5G and other features.
All four iPhone 12 models support 5G, however, only the U.S. model support millimeter wave. In addition, none of these smartphones will come with earphones and chargers. The four screens are all Super Retina XDR Display. Furthermore, they use a new screen technology, Ceramic Shield Front Cover. It has a ceramic substrate glass, which increases the hardness and resistance to drop.
In terms of photography, both the iPhone 12 Mini (5.4 inches) and iPhone 12 (6.1 inches) will use a dual-camera setup. They will also support Deep Fusion and Night Scene mode. For the Pro models, they will use a triple rear camera setup (wide-angle, ultra-wide-angle, telephoto) + LiDAR. It also uses the new 7P lens, ƒ/1.6, 52mm focal length telephoto. The biggest difference between the iPhone 12 Pro Max and the 12 Pro is that the 12 Pro Max has a larger sensor.
At the iPhone 12 series launch event, Apple will also release other products. We will see the Apple HomePod Mini with a $99 price tag. The company will also release a 3.3-inch speaker as well as a S5 processor.
