Tomorrow, Apple will present the iPhone 12 to the public. This is why rumors have again hit the gas in the last few meters before the finish line. GIGA summarizes the latest developments briefly and clearly.
Well-known Apple insider Max Weinbach reveals some interesting details about the upcoming mobile phone shortly before the presentation of the iPhone 12 at the next Apple event, information that again rounds out the image of the smartphone. A reminder in advance: there will be four models: iPhone 12 mini (5.4 inches), iPhone 12 (6.1 inches), iPhone 12 Pro (6.1 inches), and iPhone 12 Pro Max (6.7 inches).
iPhone 12: Apple improves Face ID, camera and battery
But now to the final revelations. Weinbach, who appears on Twitter as “Pine,” reports in several tweets, from which we take:
- Face identification: The “angle of view” will probably be widened again, so facial recognition should react even faster. A slightly reduced notch is only available on the iPhone 12 mini with a 5.4-inch screen, although the width is supposed to be reduced and the notch increased a bit more.
- Better zoom: Each iPhone 12 model has an even better digital zoom, the two Pro models also have an optimized optical zoom. Speaking of cameras, there may also be some kind of macro function and the ultra-wide lens aperture on the Pro models grows by 35 percent, ensuring even better results in low-light conditions. Weinbach also confirms the video recording of the cameras with 4K resolution at 120 and 240 frames per second.
- Battery power: The two Pro models could show at least an hour more stamina, but the iPhone 12 mini is more likely to be out of breath than an iPhone 11. Not surprisingly, the smaller size just takes its toll.
The iPhone 12 has to do without that:
No 120Hz display: the reason
However, if you were still expecting a faster display with 120 Hz at the last minute, you will be quite disappointed. Jon Prosser, another knowledgeable Apple expert, also confirms the absence of the feature and also provides a good reason. As a result, Apple had to make a choice: a 120 Hz display, but no 5G, or 5G but no 120 Hz display. The iPhone 12’s hardware can do both, but battery performance would suffer too much. In this regard, Apple was forced to choose a feature for the iPhone 12 Pro – 5G, consequently it is simply not an alternative. By the way, if you don’t want to miss the iPhone 12 launch tomorrow, you should definitely watch the live stream at 7pm sharp.
