They match previous rumors of sizes and specs, with the lineup as follows:
- Apple iPhone 12 mini — 5.4-inch screen
- Apple iPhone 12 — 6.1-inch screen
- Apple’s iPhone 12 Pro — 6.1-inch screen
- Apple’s iPhone 12 Pro Max — 6.7-inch model
The smallest iPhone: What to expect
As reported by Republic World, the iPhone 12 mini is set to have a 5.4-inch display. It will also come with storage options of between 128GB and 256 GB. The “mini” would have a larger display than both SE models but could be smaller than the 2nd gen because of slimmer bezels.
All 2020 new iPhones of 2020 are said to feature an OLED display technology. Also, the higher-end variants could end up with a 120hz promotion refresh rate.
Apple is expected to follow the same pattern for the iPhone 12 prices. It is assumed to start around $699 for the affordable variants and $999 and $1099 for the Pro and Pro Max, respectively.
