As we all know, the launches of new Apple products always cause many expectations, and with the launch of the new iPhone 12, it was not going to be different.
On November 6, the latest model of the great Apple company went on sale in the United States and as a consequence of this, in today’s article we want to talk about the most important characteristics and we will do a detailed review of the most relevant information.
iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro: specs and news
If you are looking for a new mobile phone and you want it to be Apple, the new iPhone 12 has become one of the best options thanks to its larger potential market. To achieve this, Apple has offered the variation of the new iPhone 12 in 4 different models: iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max, and iPhone 12 mini. Next, we want to talk about the most important technical characteristics of the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro models.
The new iPhone 12 arrives on the mobile phone market with a higher resolution OLED screen and with a changed design that will also affect the daily experience of the user. And it is that referring to the design, it seems that Apple has returned to the past and took the iPhone 5 model as a reference, thus making a slight change in the curves of the straight edges. With this, Apple not only modifies the design but also the user experience with the mobile phone and the curves make it easier to grasp the mobile phone better.
As for the screen, it is a new OLED Super Retina XDR screen that raises the mobile level and differentiates it from the previous version of the iPhone 11 Pro model in many other aspects. Compared to the iPhone 11, not only has the user experience been improved thanks to the new design but also through the screen that is displayed in the same way both indoors and outdoors, providing intense light and brightness when necessary.
All iPhone 12 models have this OLED display screen included and this means that the differences between the models of the same generation are not so visible or perceptible by the user. This way, we consider it important to emphasize that the differences between the version of iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro are insignificant since there are only some changes and improvements experienced in the camera.
Regarding the performance of the phone, it is important to note that it is excellent and is one of the reasons why the brand stands out. The performance of an iPhone is a guarantee, year after year since it provides fluidity and a very satisfactory user experience.
In addition to all the information, it is also relevant to remark that the iPhone knows how to make the most of 5G networks, and with this connection, you will notice that you can download large files, play high-quality video and use FaceTime HD.
iPhone 12: new colors and design
As we have commented previously, the design that Apple has presented in these new models of the iPhone 12 generation is reminiscent of the design that was presented at the time in the presentation of the iPhone 5. This is because they have made flatter and more ergonomic sides thus improving usability and user experience.
Thanks to the changes they have introduced in the design, the new iPhone 12 has become one of the thinnest and lightest on the market. Even so, it is important to highlight that all the new models have Ceramic Shield incorporated: a new glass that is created through nanoceramics and harder than most metals. With this material, the iPhone 12 is one of the most resistant mobiles thanks to the fact that it supports falls 4 times more, and it is water and dust resistant.
Regarding the colors, this new model stands out for being available in five unique colors, specifically, white, black, blue, green, and red. The iPhone purchases made of this last color are destined for the fight of the Global Fund against the Covid-19.
iPhone 12`s camera: learn what you can film!
The camera is one of the elements for which Apple stands out the most and it has turned into an essential element for the vast majority of Apple users.
The same base of the photography of the previous models has been maintained in this new iPhone 12. A 12 MP dual-camera system is used that is composed of a wide-angle camera and the main camera where the large aperture of f/1.6 stands out. And the 7 elements of its slow-motion guarantee an optical stabilization of the image.
As we mentioned, this new model uses a dual-camera system and an Intelligent HDR 3 system that balances all the elements of photography. In this way, the details of the protagonists are highlighted but the detail and color of the other elements are also maintained. Besides, thanks to machine learning, the HDR system not only recognizes faces but also scenes and is capable of retouching sharpness, color, and white balance whenever necessary.
Other improvements that have been introduced in this new iPhone 12 model is Night mode, which also works with the wide-angle and the ultra-wide-angle. And while this is a huge improvement, Apple has also improved the fact that users can take great photos even in the darkest environment. Now, you can not only take photos in Night mode but also videos with a 27% higher resolution in low light.
Specifically, Night mode detects when there is low ambient lighting and is activated automatically. In this way, it maintains clarity and displays rich, bright colors despite low ambient light. Also, they have improved this mode so that when users want to photograph a cloudy sky or moonlight, they can get great results thanks to the sharpness of their photos.
Finally, and concerning Night mode, the Deep Fusion also stands out, which works in low-light environments. In this way, what it does is analyze the different light exposures to compose the most detailed photo possible.
Besides, they have created the first camera to record Dolby Vision, a technology that was only available for large budget movies or series. Now, with the new camera, you can record, edit, and play videos in Dolby Vision on your iPhone. Specifically, you can record a video in 4K HDR with Dolby Vision, thus having a cinematic experience from start to finish and it is only available on this mobile. This improvement was possible thanks to the A14 Bionic chip, the fastest in a smartphone.
