After the base model iPhone 12, which Apple clearly relies on, the company has introduced a new mini model – it is called the iPhone 12 mini, as recent rumors have said. In short, everything we’ve heard about the iPhone 12 mini has been confirmed. It is indeed the smallest Apple smartphone since the iPhone 5. It has a 5.4-inch screen, but thanks to the thin bezels, the new product is more compact than the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and the current iPhone SE (2020).
In fact, the iPhone 12 mini is the same iPhone 12, only in a more compact body. The dimensions of the iPhone 12 mini are 131.5 x 64.2 x 7.4 mm and weighs 133 grams. For comparison, the dimensions of the iPhone 12 – 146.7×71.5×7.4 mm with a mass of 164 g. Apple calls the iPhone 12 mini “the smallest, thinnest and lightest 5G phone.”
The 5.4-inch OLED screen on iPhone 12 mini features a 2340-by-1080 resolution and 60Hz frame rate.
The pixel density is even higher than that of the iPhone 12 – 476 versus 460 pixels per inch. Ceramic Shield is also available here.
Another difference between the iPhone 12 mini and the iPhone 12 is the lower battery capacity and, therefore, not as high autonomy. Apple promises up to 15 hours of video playback and up to 50 hours of audio playback.
The rest of the iPhone 12 mini – in terms of characteristics and capabilities – is completely identical to the base 6.1-inch model of the iPhone 12, which we talked about in detail in the previous news. That is, it uses an identical SoC A14 Bionic, an identical dual main camera with two modules of the same resolution 12 MP with wide-angle optics 26 mm with optical stabilization and ultra-wide-angle 13 mm and 120˚, as well as MagSafe wireless magnetic charging technology.
Like the iPhone 12, the compact iPhone 12 mini is available in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB flash versions in Black, White, Product Red, Green, and Blue.
With prices for the iPhone, the 12 mini did the same trick as with the rest of the models. IPhone 12 mini 64GB has a starting special price of $ 699. The usual starting price for the iPhone 12 mini is $ 729. The 128GB and 256GB versions of the iPhone 12 mini cost $ 779 and $ 879, respectively. The compact iPhone 12 mini will go on sale later along with the top 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max. Global pre-orders for iPhone 12 mini will start on November 6, with actual sales starting exactly one week later, on November 13.
The timing of the arrival of the iPhone 12 mini on sale in Ukraine and hryvnia prices have not yet been reported.
