Only a few more weeks separate us from the introduction of the new iPhone 12. Now the last secret is revealed before the market launch, perhaps not a crucial detail, but good to know.
The image of the next iPhone 12 became more and more concrete in the rumor mill, for example, we recently learned about Apple’s unfortunate exemption: Unfortunately, there will be no screens with a 120Hz refresh rate this year. For now, the traitors are giving us a less important but interesting detail.
iPhone 12: Apple’s final naming scheme revealed
The whistleblower “@ L0vetodream”, who has appeared accurately in recent months, reveals the final names of the four models. The name of the two economic models creates clarity. According to him, we can get used to the sound of the following terms:
- iPhone 12 mini (5.4 inch)
- iPhone 12 (6.1 inch)
- iPhone 12 Pro (6.1 inch)
- iPhone 12 Pro Max (6.7 inches)
If this is really true in the end, then Apple would use the term “mini” for the first time with the iPhone. It was previously used on the iPod and currently on the iPad and Mac. For classification: Until now it has been assumed that Apple would simply name the 5.4-inch model as the iPhone 12, while the 6.1-inch model would be called the “iPhone 12 Max ”. But now it is going in the other direction and we can expect an iPhone mini for the first time.
This year Apple already introduced a new iPhone, but it seemed very familiar to us:
No name changes among professionals
The naming scheme of the Pro models, on the other hand, remains unchanged and is therefore simply adopted from the predecessor. However, the display sizes of OLED screens are not adopted. The iPhone 12 Pro has a 6.1-inch screen instead of 5.8-inch and the iPhone 12 Pro Max has a 6.7-inch screen instead of 6.5-inch. Ergo: With the Pro models it gets bigger, with the “normal model” instead everything remains as is, plus a new “mini edition”.
We won’t see an iPhone of this type until next year at the earliest:
A presentation of all new iPhone models is expected at an Apple event in October. According to the latest information, the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro will be available initially, while the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max will be delayed and apparently only sold in November.
