Apple may release a mini version of the iPhone 12 this fall. The mini iPhone will come with a 5.4-inch screen and 5G connectivity.
Apple has been hitting all the right marks in the consumer tech market in the last 6 months. The turnaround for the company started with the refreshed and recalibrated Macbook Pro 13-inch and 16-inch. It was then followed by the successful launch of the iPad Pro 2020 and its corresponding accessories.
The Magic Keyboard with TouchPad is making users consider completely shifting from laptops to a tablet setup. After the iPad, Apple surprised fans with an affordable Apple iPhone SE for the budget market.
Now its set to release an even more accommodating phone within the iPhone spectrum.
iPhone 12 mini version
Rumors in the past few weeks circulated around the iPhone 12 series being a game changing release. The announcement will reportedly have four new phones that will be released. It will have the standard iPhone 12 base model, iPhone 12 Pro, and the iPhone 12 Pro Max.
The surprise will come with the iPhone 12 mini version. The name for the smaller phone hasn’t been confirmed, but it definitely won’t be an SE. Neither will it be just a rehashed iPhone 11.
Instead the iPhone 12 mini will be sandwiched between the iPhone SE and the iPhone 12 base model. The strategy is a smart move considering that there are users stuck between choosing between the base models and the SE model.
Some users do not necessarily want the budget iPhone, yet also do not want the pricey iPhone base models. Therefore, the release of the fourth iPhone 12 model fills the void.
Rumored specs of the iPhone 12 mini version
The fourth iPhone 12 model will have a 5.4-inch screen. This will be bigger than the iPhone SE‘s 4.7-inch screen, yet will still come as smaller than the 5.8-inch screen of the possible iPhone 12 base model. The screen will be OLED panels that can provide darker blacks and sharper bright colors
The new iPhone 12 phones will also reportedly have smaller notches giving way to a better screen to body ratio. Not only that, all iPhone 12 phones will also have 5G connectivity for faster and more reliable connections.
Similar to Apple’s old design language, the iPhone 12 series will have a boxier edge similar to iPhone 4 iteration and the iPad Pro models. This means that the handle for the new phones will have a better grip compared to the round edges of the iPhone 6 phones onwards.
