Apple iPhone 12, 12 Pro Features, Specs
The iPhone 12 and the iPhone 12 Pro are extremely similar, which is why we think most people would settle for the iPhone 12, which offers more value for the money. Both smartphones feature a 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR OLED screen with Full HD+ resolution, HDR10 and Dolby Vision playback, 1,200 nits of peak brightness, True-Tone adjustment, and Wide Color Gamut. The screens are covered by Apple’s proprietary ‘Ceramic Shield Glass’. Both smartphones feature a notch at the top-centre part of the screen, where the selfie camera, Face ID sensors, and the earpiece is located. They both have stereo speakers but lack a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The iPhone 12 uses an aluminium frame and weighs 164g. The iPhone 12 Pro uses a stainless steel frame and weighs 189g. Both phones measure the same, though: 146.7mm x 71.5mm x 7.4mm. Both iPhones are also IP68 certified for dust and water resistance (up to 6 metres for up to 30 minutes). The iPhone 12 comes in five colours: Black, Blue, Green, Red, and White. The iPhone 12 Pro is offered in four colours: Gold, Graphite, Pacific Blue, and Silver.
Apple has equipped the iPhone 12 and the iPhone 12 Pro with the A14 Bionic processor, which is made using TSMC’s 5nm process. The new processor has a hexa-core CPU (2x 3.1GHz Firestorm + 4x 1.8GHz Icestorm) and a quad-core GPU. Both phones run iOS 14 out of the box and come with various Apple services, including App Store, Apple Books, Apple Health, Apple Home, Apple Music, Apple Podcasts, Apple TV, Apple Wallet, iMessage, iTunes Store, Safari, Siri, and Stocks.
The iPhone 12 has 4GB RAM, while the iPhone 12 Pro has 6GB RAM. The iPhone 12 is offered in three storage variants: 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB. The iPhone 12 Pro starts at 128GB base storage and is also offered in 256GB and 512GB variants.
In terms of imaging, the iPhone 12 and the iPhone 12 Pro are quite similar. Both smartphones are equipped with 12MP (1/3.6-inch) selfie cameras with an F2.2 aperture, 23mm wide-angle lens, HDR, Night Mode, and up to 4K 60fps video recording. The iPhone 12 has a dual-camera setup at the rear, including a 12MP wide-angle sensor and a 12MP ultrawide camera. The iPhone 12 Pro uses the same wide-angle and ultrawide cameras like that of the iPhone 12, but adds a 12MP 2x optical zoom camera and a LiDAR sensor.
All the rear-facing cameras on the iPhone 12 and the iPhone 12 Pro can record 4K 60fps videos with EIS. The iPhone 12 Pro can also record 4K 60fps videos in Dolby Vision format using all its cameras, but the iPhone 12 maxes out at 4K 30fps videos in Dolby Vision using all its cameras.
In terms of connectivity, Apple is equipped the iPhone 12 and the iPhone 12 Pro with 5G (sub-6GHz available in India), 4G LTE, VoLTE, VoWiFi, GPS, dual-band Wi-Fi 6, AirPlay 2, Bluetooth 5.0 (with LE and AAC), NFC, and a Lightning Port. Both smartphones also feature Face ID for 3D face scanning, which is used for unlocking the phone and certain apps. It is also used for features like Memoji and Memoji Stickers.
The iPhone 12 and the iPhone 12 Pro are powered by similarly sized (2,815mAh) batteries. Both phones support up to 20W fast charging via compatible USB PD chargers. The phones also support Qi wireless charging (up to 7.5W) and 15W fast wireless charging via the new MagSafe protocol. MagSafe for iPhones combines magnets (for alignment of accessories), NFC (for accessory identification), and wireless charging (in some accessories).
None of these two smartphones come with a charging adapter or wired earphones (EarPods) in the box, though, and Apple says that it has removed those components from the box to reduce the strain on the environment. However, we don’t buy that claim in its entirety. After all, the company is set to earn a lot through first-party and third-party accessories such as wall chargers and wired/wireless earphones. If you remember, Apple chargers a fee for each MFi-certified accessory sold by third parties.
