Apple’s biggest event of the year was held on October 13th, in which the much-awaited iPhone 12 lineup made an appearance — and yes, they all feature 5G support. The newly launched lineup consists of four new iPhones, and among them are two premium models, the iPhone 12 Pro and the iPhone 12 Pro Max. In this article, let’s take an in-depth look at the key specifications and features of the new iPhone 12 Pro 5G.
Perhaps the most exciting news about the latest iPhone 12 Pro 5G is that it is powered by the new and more capable A14 Bionic chip. The CPU and GPU performance of this phone is up to 50% percent faster than any other smartphones in the market. This means enhanced computational photography and better-than-ever gaming experience. Apple has also pumped the machine learning (ML) performance, increasing the number of cores in the Neural Engine to 16. Enabling superior performance, the CPU is now capable of completing 11 trillion operations per second.
The iPhone 12 Pro features a 6.1 inch Super Retina XDR display, slightly bigger than last year’s 5.8-inch iPhone 11 Pro. This edge-to-edge OLED display has 1170 x 2532 pixel resolution and 460 pixel density. The display offers HDR support with True Tone, a 2 million to one contrast ratio, and fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating. With 800 nits max brightness (1200 nits in HDR), the iPhone 12 Pro has one of the brightest and most attractive displays you can ever find in any smartphone today.
Well, there is no denying that Apple has made some serious upgrades to the cameras across the iPhone 12 lineup. The new and improved three-lens camera system makes the iPhone 12 Pro a photographer’s new device. It features the latest seven-element wide camera lens for even better low-light photos and videos. With a 120-degree field of view, the ultra-wide camera can capture vast landscapes into the iPhone. And finally, a 52 mm focal length Telephoto camera brings the optical zoom range to 4x.
Design and storage capacity
The iPhone 12 Pro boasts a stainless steel design with a ceramic shield front cover and matte glass back. It comes in four colors: silver, graphite, gold, and pacific blue. It is available in three variants with 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB storage options. The starting price of the latest iPhone 12 Pro is $999.
The iPhone 12 Pro 5G is available for pre-order starting from Friday, October 16th. The phone will be available in-store from October 23rd.
