iPhone 12, Pro, Pro Max and Mini

If you are a fan of Apple products, then the latest news is Apple has introduced 4 new iphones to the world. The iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Max all have a new design, powerful processor,  updated color offerings, 5G connectivity and a new ceramic display that promises to be more durable.

With so many devices in the market  it can get a little confusing about what makes these iPhones different from each other. Let us look into the specs of this new iphone series to find out what makes them different from each other.

  • iPhone 12 Pro:                        2532 x 1170 pixels
  • iPhone 12 Pro Max:   2778 x 1284 pixels

Pixel density

  • iPhone 12 mini : 476 ppi
  • iPhone 12 :      460 ppi
  • iPhone 12 Pro : 460 ppi
  • iPhone 12 Pro max : 458 ppi

Weight

  • iPhone 12 mini : 135 g
  • iPhone 12 :      164 g
  • iPhone 12 Pro : 189 g
  • iPhone 12 Pro max : 228g

Storage availability

  • iPhone 12 mini/12: 64GB to 256GB
  • iPhone 12 Pro/12 Pro Max: 128GB to 512GB

The iPhone mini is smallest in size and weight but it has the sharpest display among the four models. On the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Mini you will find dual 12MP wide and ultrawide cameras on the back and a 12MP selfie sensor on the front. On the iPhone 12 Pro you will get a triple camera stack, 12MP sensors along with a LiDAR Scanner. There is a primary wide angle lens, an ultrawide lens with a 120 degree field of view and a telephoto lens with a 4x optical zoom range as well as 10x digital zoom. While the iPhone 12 Pro Max appears to have similar specs to the 12 Pro’s three lenses and LiDAR Scanner the telephoto sensor is a little different and it has 5X optical zoom and 12x digital zoom. We have experienced great performance from the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 despite them not offering everything the Pro models do in terms of camera setup.

Apart from cameras you can also notice Apple is offering a little more base RAM/storage with the iPhone 12 Pro in comparison to the standard one. You will get a more attractive stainless steel frame with the Pro version and a matte finish aluminum frame with the new iPhone 12.
