As we are inching closer to the much-anticipated launch of the Apple iPhone 12 series, the news is rife that the Cupertino-based tech giant is likely to lift curtains off its first iPhone with a mini moniker known as the iPhone 12 mini. This small variant will be rolled out along with “iPhone 12,” “iPhone 12 Pro,” and “iPhone 12 Pro Max”.
According to MacRumors, this moniker would be similar to the one that appears on the mini version of Mac, iPod and iPad. Mind you! Apple iPhone 12 mini would be 5.4-inches in size as against the 5.4-inches iPhone 11 Pro that was launched last year.
Recently, a tipster on Twitter by name of DuanRui has shared a picture of Silicone Case Stickers for the iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12/12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max that originate from Apple’s Distribution International Ltd, Ireland. The sticker further stated that these cases are designed in California and made in China. It is worth noting that the color for all three Silicone cases is black.
Recently, a tipster had also showcased a video of the expected 6.1-inch back panel that revealed the iPhone 12 Pro will come fitted with new LiDAR sensor placement. In a video Twitter, a tipster using the screen name of EverythingApplePro showcased that the back panel will comprise of LiDAR sensor placement, flat sides, smart connector, and various cutouts. Moreover, one gets to see the designated space that fits the wireless charger. If rumours are to be believed, Apple’s upcoming iPhone 12 is somewhat in line with the iPhone 5 and its predecessor. However, there is a change in the position of the SIM-card tray as the iPhone 12 has it on its right panel. As far as the camera is concerned, it is likely that this handset would carry a triple-camera module that’s in line with the already available Apple iPhone 11 series.
Apart from this, another popular leakster Jon Prosser shared that the mass production of Apple iPhone 12 models started. According to Prosser, the 120Hz refresh rate display model (codenamed d6x) didn’t go for production. Therefore, there are high chances that the upcoming handsets could offer 60Hz or 90Hz refresh rate displays.
