New iPhone 12, characteristics, price and technical sheet

Apple just made the iPhone 12 official. It is the intermediate model in this new iPhone generation, standing one step above the expected iPhone 12 mini, but below the models 12 Pro y 12 Pro Max. The iPhone 12 aspires to be one of Apple’s best sellers, as the iPhone 11 already got it based on specifications that border the first line at a relatively tight price.

This year the strategy is repeated and, again, its intermediate model do not bet on the triple camera. However, there is an important (and expected) jump at the screen level, and that is iPhone 12 implements OLED technology and Full HD + (Super Retina XDR) resolution on a 6.1-inch panel. The 5G connection is also the protagonist in this iPhone 12 that, on paper, will present a tough battle below a thousand euros.

New Apple iPhone 12 (64 GB)

A design that sounds familiar and a renewed screen

The design of the iPhone 12 is similar to what we saw the last generation, although Apple has drawn the odd brushstroke with a different stroke. The first notable change comes from the hand of the frames, now much tighter both on the sides and on the top and bottom. Remember here that, last year, the iPhone 11 had much more frame than the iPhone 12, due among others to the lack of flexibility of the IPS panels. Thanks to the implementation of the OLED screen, the iPhone 12 has a better frontal use.

Specifically, according to Apple data, the iPhone 12 is 11% thinner, 15% smaller and 16% lighter Regarding the iPhone 11, important changes taking into account that this model has the same screen diagonal as last year.

So this year the iPhone 12 is practically equal in frames with respect to the Pro models, which also reduce frame compared to iPhone 11 Pro y 11 Pro Max. Regarding the much talked about notch, keep making an appearance, occupying a good part of the front of the device. If we turn the device around, we find lines practically traced to those of last year, with the glass as the main protagonist.

The iPhone 12 has been slightly redesigned: the side frames are now reminiscent of the iPhone 4 and 5, much flatter and more angular

The aerospace aluminum frames of the device have been redesigned. Now they remind us more of the iPhone 4, being much flatter and straighter instead of the curvature that has accompanied Apple devices since the iPhone 6. In the case of this iPhone 12, the leap to stainless steel is not made, which is still reserved for the Pro models.

Regarding the panel, we have a screen 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR, this year with OLED technology. Thus ends the great abyss that was in front of the panel of the Pro models, since last year the iPhone 11 arrived with HD + resolution and IPS technology. The refresh rate is 60Hz, nothing from Promotion neither for the iPhone 12 nor for its Pro brothers.

More on-board power and 5G connectivity

The processor that gives life to the iPhone 12 is the Apple A14 Bionic, a chip that has already released the new iPad Air. It is the first mobile processor with 5 nanometer technology. Said processor has two high-performance cores and four cores dedicated to low-demand tasks, to try to maintain a balance between power and autonomy. This processor supports both SA and NSA 5G connectivity.

As usual, Apple does not give figures on the RAM, but it is expected to be 4 GB in this iPhone 12 and 6 GB in the case of the Pro models. At the autonomy level the charger is lost in the box and the 18W fast charge is maintained. This means that we will have to buy the Apple charger separately, in case we do not have one at home.

MagSafe is the protagonist in this iPhone 12. It allows you to connect magnetic accessories just by bringing them closer to the back of the iPhone

The bet at the biometric level is once again Face ID. Apple re-implements its 3D facial recognition aided by a point projector and whose information is guaranteed to be saved locally. One of the great novelties in this iPhone is MagSafe, a magnetic technology that allows you to connect different accessories, as cases with charger. It also allows improvements in wireless charging, technology already present in the iPhone 11, but improved in this new iPhone family.

Double camera with better lens and larger aperture

The iPhone 12 bets on a dual camera setupLike the previous generation, with the iPhone 11. The main sensor is still 12 megapixels, along with a 12 megapixel wide angle. Like last year, we have optical stabilizer in the main sensor. In this case, the iPhone 12 It has a sensor with a better lens and aperture f / 1.7, promising better low-light photography.

As is customary at Apple, the work falls mainly on the software, where there have been great improvements. The first of these is the next generation HDR, Smart HDR 3. Better dynamic range is promised and the detail points to be quite rich.

The big leap, apart from the best lens, is in video. The iPhone 12 is the first mobile capable of recording in Dolby Vision 4K at a depth of 10 bits

The big jump though it’s at the video level. The iPhone 12 is the first mobile capable of recording in 4K Dolby Vision. Specifically, it is capable of recording video with a color depth of 10 bits. Similarly, you can edit Dolby Vision videos from the Photos, iMovie or Clips app, from your phone.
