After launching two same-sized devices last week — iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro — Apple started taking pre-orders for iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 12 Mini from November 6, 2020, that’ll go on sale from November 13, 2020. But there’s no waiting to get a sense of how mini the upcoming iPhone is as a video of over 40 minutes was posted on YouTube recently showing just that.
The hands-on video posted by Romanian YouTuber George Buhnici showed that when placed beside iPhone 12, its mini version looks pretty tiny. The video was taken down later.
This will be the first time the world has had a look at the upcoming iPhone 12 Mini, which comes with a 5.4-inch screen in a more modern notched-display design that Apple has introduced with the iPhone 12 series. This means users will no longer have to deal with bezels or any wasted space like the second-gen iPhone SE. Apple’s iPhone 12 Mini is priced at $699, $100 less than the iPhone 12 that has a 6.1-inch screen.
What happens to iPhone SE after the launch of iPhone 12 Mini?
Tech enthusiasts are curious to know what will happen to iPhone SE as its primary selling point has been ripped away. When iPhone SE was launched, the marketing was built around the fact that it sported an A13 processor, the same processors that iPhone 11 handsets had. These gadgets had the same power as other leading smartphones.
That isn’t the case anymore. The iPhone 12 series has steamrolled ahead with its A14 Bionic chip and left the iPhone SE gadgets behind.
The SE has lost the size argument too. With iPhone 12 Mini soon going to hit the market, the ‘smallest iPhone’ tag is going to be taken away from iPhone SE. The iPhone 12 Mini is going to be smaller in height and width and almost matches iPhone SE in depth. Now that Apple is trying to push 5G technology, even if it affects the battery life of iPhone 12 Mini, the iPhone SE will struggle to win in any area.
iPhone 12 series: Comes in all sizes
The iPhone 12 lineup will offer three different phone sizes. You’ve got the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro with 6.1-inch screens – smaller than iPhone 11 and slightly bigger than the iPhone 11 Pro. This is joined by Apple 12 Pro Max (6.7-inch) for people who love giant screens, as well as iPhone 12 Mini for people who love small screens.
Aside from the smaller display and battery, the iPhone 12 series will also match the specs of the standard iPhone 12.
