Apple iPhone 12 5G revealed
Apple has unveiled four versions of the iPhone 12 at a virtual event early on Wednesday morning, with 5G connectivity and OLED screens across the board, alongside a new HomePod smart speaker and magnetic wireless chargers.
The iPhones have been redesigned with angular metal edges reminiscent of older models, and new cover glass that Apple says makes them four times more resistant to being dropped.
The standard iPhone 12 comes in the same 6.1-inch display size as the iPhone 11 and iPhone XR, but Apple also introduced the smaller iPhone Mini with a 5.4-inch display. These phones come in white, black, blue, green and red and feature a pair of cameras; wide and ultra-wide. In Australia the iPhone 12 will go for $1349 for a model with 64GB of storage, while the Mini will start at $1199.
Then there are a pair of iPhone 12 Pro models, which add a telephoto camera lens and a LiDAR scanner for enhanced depth detection, in the standard 6.1-inch size as well as 6.7-inch; the largest display ever on an iPhone. These phones come in graphite, silver, gold and blue, and boast stainless steel finishes versus the less expensive phones’ aluminium. The Pro will start at $1699 for a model with 128GB of storage, while the Pro Max will start at $1849.
