The absence of the iPhone 12 Series in Apple‘s autumn launch in September has greatly increased the appetite of Apple fans. However, due to the “postponement” of the release, the configuration of the new iPhone has long been guessed, such as 5g and 5nm chips, and even the names and models of four mobile phones. What’s more shocking is that God has already announced the price of the iPhone, but after watching the release, it still has It has brought us a lot of surprises. Let’s see if the new iPhone 12 is worth buying?
The first product to appear at Apple’s launch was the homepod mini smart speaker. There is a big difference in the design between this speaker and the previous homepod. The whole fuselage adopts the spherical design, which is covered by mesh modeling. However, the homepod Mini is also controlled by the touch area at the top. The intelligent system can distinguish the voice control of different family members. Siri can be used to operate any intelligent appliances in the home. It can also be used for making phone calls and sending short messages. In addition, the new feature “intercom” can be directly connected to homepods in different locations of the home by voice communication. It’s only $99.
5g is the focus of this conference
This is the first time Apple has installed 5g technology on the iPhone. What’s exciting is that all four iPhone products support 5g network
The iPhone supported by the top hardware ecology and superior software will bring better ecological collaborative experience for the partners under the blessing of 5g. According to the press conference, the 5g R & D of iPhone 12 is closely related to each other. Relying on the highly closed IOS system, iPhone can not only reduce the power consumption of 5g used by applications, but also can intelligently switch between 4G and 5g according to its network speed requirements.
The whole system is equipped with A14 bionic chip
This time, apple provided the full line iPhone with A14 bionic chip, which was first launched on the fourth generation iPad air. A14 bionics is the first 5-nanometer process chip for iPhone. Due to the advanced process technology, the number of transistors in A14 has been greatly increased, from 8.5 billion in A13 to 11.8 billion. At the same time, due to the smaller diodes, the endurance will be greatly increased.
Specific to each module, A14 is still the same as the previous generation of 6-core CPU and 4-core GPU. Compared with A12, the performance of the two parts is improved by 40% and 30% respectively, while compared with the processor of other mobile phones, it is about 50% higher. Another improvement is the neural network engine of A14: the new 16 core architecture directly doubles the number of 8 cores in A13, and can provide computing power of up to 11tops.
Not only speed up the performance, but also improve energy efficiency, ensuring excellent battery life. The new image signal processor supports Dolby view video capture, which is comparable to multi-disciplinary cameras.
Two series and four mobile phones
The iPhone 12 Mini differs from the iPhone 12 only in size, and its features are not castrated. Apple officials say the iPhone 12 Mini is smaller and lighter than the 4.7-inch iPhone 8, but has a 5.4-inch screen. It is the smallest, thinnest and lightest 5g mobile phone in the world. It differs from the iPhone 12 in screen size.
The iPhone 12 features a straight border design, supports 5g, new color, faster A14 bionic chip, dual lens rear camera system, super retina XDR display, resolution of 2532×1170, contrast of 2 million: 1, brightness of 1200 nits, support of Dolby horizon and hdr10. Compared with the iPhone 11, the iPhone 12 is 11% thinner and 15% smaller. The brightness of both the iPhone and the iPhone 11 has been improved.
On the signal issue, apple said the iPhone 12 has adopted a new antenna system to maximize 5g performance. Apple updated the iPhone 12’s camera system with a new 12 megapixel wide-angle camera with a wider aperture. Apple also used a seven element lens for the first time, with low light performance up to 27%.
The iPhone 12 has MagSafe to enhance wireless charging with magnetic suction. Apple also said the iPhone 12 could support 15W wireless charging.
The iPhone 12 Pro Series, designed in stainless steel, comes in four colors: gray, stainless steel, gold and blue. Apple offers a three camera system on the iPhone 12 pro with 12 megapixel wide-angle, telephoto and ultra wide-angle camera lenses. The iPhone 12 Pro Max also builds a camera system. A new 12 megapixel telephoto lens with a focal length of 65mm can be optically magnified to 2.5 times. There is also a new wide-angle camera, f / 1.6 aperture and a new sensor shift OIS optical anti shake system. The wide-angle sensor is 47% larger, which brings 87% better low light performance than the lower aperture.
Overall, compared with the iPhone 12, the biggest advantage of the iPhone 12 Pro lies in photography. The Pro Series has added lidar, and the most intuitive improvement is the focusing performance in dark light, which has been improved by 6 times. In addition, in the Pro Series, you can directly take photos in apple proraw format, as well as 10bit HDR video. On the larger iPhone 12 Pro max, the pro class camera system can be fully used.
Apple’s iPhone 12 mini version starts at 5499 yuan, and iPhone 12 international version starts at 6299 yuan. Apple’s iPhone 12 Pro national version starts at 8499 yuan, while Apple’s iPhone 12 Pro Max starts at 9299 yuan. On the whole, it is basically in line with the market expectation, which is not different from the previous forecast. For reservations, the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro will open on October 16. Max and mini need to book on November 6th.
In addition, the following points should be noted:
- IPhone 12 will support League of heroes mobile game
- The iPhone 12 series is not equipped with charging head and headset
- The iPhone 12 supports Beidou navigation system.
