Apple has finally revealed the much-anticipated iPhone of the year in its “Hi, speed” event on Tuesday and that is iPhone12. It comes in 4 variants, the undisputed star of the event being the iPhone12 mini.
Compared to the last year’s line-up, there’s the sole phone that stands out is the iPhone 12 mini exclusively due to its size. Everything else thereon is additionally what the iPhone 12 offers albeit during a larger footprint. So, allow me to mention the iPhone 12 and the way it measures up against the last year’s iPhone 11 in order that you recognize what the additional money you’ll find yourself paying is going to be for.
Some of the contrasting features of iPhone12 in comparison to iPhone11 are-
iPhone12 boasts of Super Retina XDR display that is an upgrade over the iPhone11 screen that still comes with Liquid Retina display. The major advantage being that it also has Truetone and definitely the brightness of the screen will be higher than the iPhone11.
Apple has configured iPhone12 with its latest and upgraded A14 Bionic processor and that justifies the tagline of the event- “Hi, Speed.” It is based on the 5-nanometre technology which is one of the leading ones in the industry right now in contrast to iPhone11 that runs on a 7- nanometre technology.
Apple still has not unveiled the battery capacity of the newly launched iPhone12 but what is known is that it supports an 18W fast charging USB-PD, and Qi wireless charging up to 15W. The iPhone 11 features a 3110mAh battery with an equivalent 18W fast charging support, support for USB-PD, and Qi wireless charging but not at 15W output.
iPhone12 lower versions have a slight improvement on the camera front than iPhone11. The iPhone 12 has a 12-megapixel wide F1.6 camera and a 12-megapixel ultrawide F2.4 camera. iPhone11 also carries the same specifications but with an F1.8 aperture on the ultrawide one. If you do not understand the high-profile features of the upper-end models then those devices are probably not made for you.
One of the latest and eye-catching upgrades in the iPhone12 is that it supports the ultra-fast 5G connectivity. But as 5G is still alien to India iPhone11 is a more viable option.
In a nutshell, if you’re already rocking the iPhone11 or 11Pro then you might like to wait for iPhone 13. But if you want to step into the world of ios for the first time then it’s a dilemma. iPhone 11 still remains an attractive buy given the price cut and the feisty discounts by Amazon and Flipkart in their Big Billion Days and the Great Indian Festival sales. With the iPhone 11selling for less than Rs. 50000 you can treat yourself with one without worrying much about burning a big hole in your pockets.
