Yes, Apple added the Purple option to complement the five colors that were present before, namely White, Black, Green, Blue and (PRODUCT) RED. The purple bandage blends beautifully in coloring the entire aluminum frame and back glass material.
But keep in mind that this is not the first time Apple has released a purple iPhone. Previously, the Cupertino-based company had issued a Purple option on the iPhone 11 released in 2019.
If it is a matter of specifications, there is nothing new. Both phones carry a Super Retina XDR display that supports Dolby Vision and HDR 10.. If the iPhone 12 measures 6.1 inches, the iPhone 12 Mini has a 5.4 inch screen.
Apple protects the screen with a layer called a ceramic shield, which is claimed to be more durable than the glass layer on the market today. Both of them have received IP68 certification, which means they have the resistance of being immersed in water up to 6 meters for 30 minutes, besides that they are resistant to coffee and soda spills.
Both the iPhone 12 and the iPhone 12 Mini are powered by the A14 Bionic chipset. CPU performance is claimed to be 50% faster than cellphones on the market, as well as the GPU.

The specifications of the front and rear cameras of these two phones are the same. There are 2 cameras on the back, each measuring 12 MP Wide and 12 MP Ultra Wide, while on the front measuring 12 MP with an aperture of f / 2.2.
Apple brings HDR video recording feature with Dolby Vision on iPhone 12. This capability is claimed to be the first and only one in the world to enable an end-to-end Dolby Vision experience. This feature allows users to easily record, edit, and share cinema-class videos on the iPhone.
And of course, the iPhone 12 and 12 Mini support 5G connections which offer fast speeds. Both also support the MagSafe feature which brings a new experience in wireless charging.
Apple began selling the iPhone 12 and 12 Mini Purple this Friday (23/4/2021) in a number of countries. Maybe a few weeks later it will be present in Indonesia.
Regarding the official price, there is no difference, the iPhone 12 Mini was released for USD 699 or the equivalent of Rp. 9.7 million, while the iPhone 12 costs USD 799 or around Rp. 11.1 million.
