iPhone 12 Mini: how does it differ from other models?
Silicone case stickers designed for the iPhone 12 have appeared online, and they confirm a recent rumor about smartphone names that Apple is considering this year.
Most likely, on October 13, Apple will release four new iPhones in three sizes: 5.4 inches, 6.1 inches, and 6.7 inches.
This will be the first time the company will release four models at the same time, and the naming scheme that is being rumored seems rather confusing. The lineup was previously expected to include the 5.4-inch iPhone 12, 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Max, 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro, and 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max.
All new models will be equipped with new OLED displays and A14 Bionic processors. They will also have 5G.
According to a recent leak, the smallest model will be called the iPhone 12 Mini, while what was previously called the iPhone 12 Max will be called simply the iPhone 12. These models will probably have a dual-camera system. The Pro models are equipped with a system with three cameras and LiDar sensors.
Leaked silicone iPhone case stickers confirm this rumor, which means the 5.4-inch model is likely to be called the iPhone 12 Mini - a first for Apple.
The black silicone cases appear to have been ordered by an Apple supplier from Ireland.
Why does Apple want to make a clear distinction between the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 and the rest of the line?
Except for screen size, the iPhone 12 Mini and iPhone 12 will look identical in appearance. So the question is, why would Apple use the iPhone 12 Mini for its entry-level model name.
In recent years, flagship smartphones have grown in size, and there are not many premium smartphones on the market that will suit fans of compact models. The survey shows that the design of the future iPhone 12, similar to the iPhone 4, combined with a small 5.4-inch display may be the perfect recipe for success.
Also, apart from the actual name and size, the iPhone 12 Mini may only be a 4G variant, while the rest of the models may get 5G.
We just have to wait a few weeks to find out if all this is true.
