IPhone 12 review: everything that is known a couple of weeks before the presentation

Published

Autumn has already begun, and the date of Apple’s presentation is still not officially announced. Only one thing is known – the traditional “apple” event in September should not be expected. Most likely, iPhone smartphones will be introduced a month later – in October. However, rumors are already circulating on the Internet about what updates the next generation models will receive.

Smartphones: 3 + 1

Apple once released one new iPhone model each year. Last year, gadget addicts were offered a choice between two smartphones – basic and “advanced”. This time the company presents 4 models at once – iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Max, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max.

The iPhone 12 is considered the base model, it will have a 5.4-inch display. The enlarged version of the iPhone 12 Max will be equipped with a 6.1-inch screen – the same screen will receive a pro-version of the iPhone 12. The largest display – as much as 6.4 inches – will be a hallmark of the iPhone 12 Pro Max. At the same time, the entire line will receive OLED screens, and the “pro” version – an improved display with a frequency of 120 Hz.

The first rumors launched on the Internet contained information that the new iPhones will become frameless. However, they have not been confirmed – there will be both frames and bangs. However, the latter will be slightly smaller than in the iPhone 11.

It is expected that the design of the new generation of Apple smartphones will return to the traditions of the iPhone 4 and 5. This means that the usual for fans rounded silhouette will again be a little more square and sharp.

Cameras: 4 – 1

The course to increase the number of cameras is taken by all smartphone manufacturers. Therefore, iPhonographers expected to see in the new iPhone pro-version not 3 but 4 cameras. However, recent information leaks still confirm that the number of cameras will remain unchanged in the basic versions, and in the Pro – 2 and 3 cameras, respectively.

Apple is not chasing megapixel numbers either. While competitors release gadgets with 64-megapixel cameras, “Apple” continues to use lenses with 12-megapixel resolution. But there is information that at least the iPhone 12 Pro Max will get a 16 MP camera – in any case, this is evidenced by the latest “merged” screenshots with the characteristics of the flagship smartphone. By the way, there is also another rumor – the top version of the iPhone will receive a LiDAR module, known for the iPad Pro tablet. The beauty of the module is that it allows you to determine the depth of the image in real time, improving the image quality.

In addition, in the pro-versions there should be an improved night mode – the corresponding switch was found in the settings. It is likely that smartphones will also get improved Smart HDR and triple optical zoom (versus double).

As for video recording, new stabilization technology and improved autofocus are expected. Video can be shot at 120 frames per second in normal mode and at 240 frames per second – in slow motion.

Internet: 4G + 1

Chipping, coronavirus, conspiracy theories… No matter how many conversations there are, the high-speed 5G Internet has to be! And in the iPhone 12 – including. All models should receive the module, but not all countries plan to release smartphones with 5G. In some countries – and in Russia, presumably, too – new iPhones will be released with a 4G module. All because the new technology has not been implemented even at the level of basic testing.

It is worth noting that 3 of the 4 smartphones will have 5G with waves at 6 GHz. And only the iPhone 12 Pro Max will be able to support a network with millimeter waves. This is primarily due to the size of the smartphone itself. Only in the top version there is physically enough space to place the necessary elements. By the way, the number of countries where this technology will be available is limited to three – so far the United States, South Korea and Japan.

Accessories: 3 – 2

Unexpectedly for many, Apple is reducing the configuration of its new smartphones. The usual set “iPhone + Lightning-cable + charger + headphones” suddenly loses two accessories at once. Now the iPhone will be sold without a charger and headphones. The latter fact especially upset fans of the “apple” smartphone – the first speculations suggested that Apple will equip iPhones with wireless headphones. But in the end it turned out to be exactly the opposite – the iPhone 12 will still have to buy not only cases and protective glasses, but also “basic” accessories.

By the way, 5G can be blamed for this. The introduction of new technology has significantly increased the cost of the smartphone. To prevent a significant rise in price, Apple had to cut costs by sacrificing accessories.

As for the prices for the new iPhone, now we are not talking about any specifics. There is information that the base iPhone 12 will be cheaper than its predecessor by $ 50. However, everything will be known only during the presentation. And the good news – immediately after its completion, a pre-order for the updated line of iPhone 12 will be available.
