See the smallest 5G phone, the new Apple iPhone 12 Mini
Apple unveiled its smallest, most affordable entry-level device, the new iPhone 12 mini
The iPhone 12 Mini boasts a 5.4-inch Super Retina XDR OLED display which has a 2,340 x 1,080 resolution.
The device is also smaller than the iPhone SE 2020 because it doesn’t have large bezels or a button at the bottom of the device.
The smartphone also includes support for HDR 10 and Dolby Vision, and the iPhone 12 Mini is protected by a new ceramic shield material, which Apple said dramatically improves the device’s toughness.
The iPhone 12 Mini comes in 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB storage options and will use Apple’s A14 Bionic processor to provide impressive performance.
Other features include a dual 12MP main camera and dual SIM support with an eSIM.
Apple has also introduced new and improved wireless charging, as well as MagSafe for iPhone – which enables accessories to be attached to the back of the iPhone using magnetism.
In terms of its camera, the iPhone 12 Mini uses a dual-camera system, with a 12MP ultra-wide camera and a new 12MP wide camera, which has an f/1.6 aperture.
Here is a summary of the mini’s specs below:
