iPhone 12 mini: the name is confirmed by the packaging with cases

Earlier we wrote that in October Apple will show four new iPhones: iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. The name of the line, published by a well-known insider under the nickname L0vetodream, looks logical and understandable, immediately reflecting the capabilities of all smartphones.

Now, a photo of stickers has appeared on the network, which will be glued to packaging with covers for future iPhones.

This photo confirms that the successors to the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro will be the same size, as the stickers indicate that one iPhone case fits another.

The writing of the smallest model is also confirmed: iPhone 12 mini. There is an obvious parallel with two other “minis”: Mac mini and iPad mini.

According to previous leaks, the lineup of future iPhones will look like this:

iPhone 12 mini iPhone 12 iPhone 12 Pro iPhone 12 Pro Max
5.4-inch OLED, Super Retina 6.1-inch OLED, Super Retina 6.1-inch OLED, Super Retina XDR with ProMotion (120Hz) and 10-bit 6.7-inch OLED, Super Retina XDR with ProMotion (120Hz) and 10-bit

Dual camera (wide + ultra wide) Dual camera (wide + ultra wide) Triple camera (wide + ultra wide + 3 × telephoto) + LiDAR Triple camera (wide + ultra wide + 3 × telephoto) + LiDAR
$549, $649 $649, $749 $999, $1099, $1299 $1099, $1199, $1399

Despite the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro being the same size, the batteries will be different. This is primarily due to a different arrangement of components. For example, the iPhone 12 Pro is expected to receive a different display, an additional camera, and LiDAR, similar to the one found in the iPad Pro (2020).

Questions also arise about the price of smartphones. Personally, I find it strange that the iPhone 12 will start at $ 649, which is fifty bucks cheaper than the iPhone 11, which had an IPS display and 64 GB of internal memory in the “base”.

It turns out that if the iPhone 12 mini was presented now, then the Russian office of Apple would have exhibited it for 59,990 rubles.

We expect the presentation to take place either on 6th or 13th October.
