Apple iPhone 12: What to expect
What to expect at the launch, you ask? Well, the launch of new iPhone models is a hyped event every year and is usually surrounded by speculations of what to come. This year is no different. Let’s check out the various speculations doing rounds about the iPhone 12.
A popular speculation is that the iPhone 12 series could include four variants, instead of the usual two or three, with the addition of an iPhone 12 Mini. It is believed that the variants would have different sizes, and iPhone 12 Mini, as the name suggests, would be the smallest. As far as the prices are concerned, it is believed that the iPhone 12 series would start at a lower price than iPhone 11, probably due to the Mini variant.
In the design aspect, the iPhone 12 series could receive a redesign, with the company likely to bring back a more iPhone 4-like design with flatter sides, rather than curved ones.
As far as features are concerned, there are two that are certain – the newly launched iOS 14 and Apple’s new A14 Bionic processor. Moreover, after Apple stated that the new iPad and Apple Watch variants would not include a power adapter in order to reduce plastic use and waste, the same could carry forward to the new iPhone series as well.
Whether the speculations were true or not, the iPhone 12 launch has us on our toes!
