Before the end of the National Day holiday, we received an invitation letter from Apple. There is almost no suspense about the content of this conference, the iPhone 12 series that is nailed to the table, and the HomePod Mini that is likely to be released.
Like the last press conference, this press conference is still held online, and the time is set at one o’clock in the morning on October 14th (Wednesday) Beijing time.
Previously, overseas media broke the news that there were 4 iPhone 12 models. The entry model is 5.4 inches, named iPhone 12 mini, and storage space includes 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB. The storage versions of the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 series are also 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB. The high-end iPhone 12 Pro (6.1 inches) and iPhone 12 Pro Max (6.7 inches) started with 128GB storage.
In terms of price, the iPhone 12 mini is priced from US$649 to US$799, which is approximately RMB 4,406 to 5,425; the iPhone 12 is priced from US$749 to US$899, which is approximately RMB 5,085 to 6,104; one of the high-end models, the iPhone. The 12 Pro is priced between US$999 and US$1,299, which is approximately RMB 6,783 to RMB 8,819; and the highest configuration iPhone 12 Pro Max is priced from US$1,099 to US$1,399, which is approximately RMB 7,461 to 9,498.
In addition, according to the latest news, Apple may add “Smart Data Mode” to the iPhone 12. According to the sources, the new iPhone can seamlessly switch between 4G and 5G networks after adding this function, similar to the current 4G and WiFi switching. The process can be done automatically in the background. Whether the iPhone is switched to a 5G network depends on what you do on the iPhone, and it also depends on whether the APP supports it. If you are using applications that require higher bandwidth such as video apps, the iPhone will switch from 4G to 5G, and under normal circumstances, the iPhone will be in a 4G network state.
The reason for this design is mainly to save battery power and enhance battery life. At present, many applications can run as long as they are in 4G, and applications that require high bandwidth are still very limited. Therefore, this approach is considered to be one of the effective means to increase the battery life of mobile phones.
And as the press conference is approaching, more and more news has surfaced, and they have begun to hit the ground. For example, the news about the iPhone 12 series equipped with a 120Hz high refresh rate screen was heated up before, and then it was reported that Apple would only carry a high-brush screen on the super flagship iPhone 12 Pro Max, but then there was news that all Apple iPhone 12 series It will not be equipped with a high-brush screen, the whole news can be said to be repeated, hope and disappointment are also between fruit fans.
However, on October 11th, Jon Prosser, a well-known mobile phone news giant, gave the latest news. He said that the iPhone 12 does not have a 120Hz high refresh. It is also the iPhone 13 series. It will be possible to use the 120Hz high refresh next year and support it. ProMotion adaptive refresh rate technology, automatically adjust the refresh rate. You know that since 2019, the high-swipe screen has become a standard key feature of the Android flagship. Now this feature of the iPhone 12 series has been cancelled, which is embarrassing.
In addition, 2020 will be the first year that Apple will introduce 5G to the iPhone. According to rumors, all models in the iPhone 12 series will have 5G connectivity, but it is unclear whether all iPhone 12 models will support ultra-high-speed mmWave (millimeter wave). There are reports that mmWave may be speed limited in some countries. (Mingmei unlimited note: The global 5G network frequency band is mainly divided into two major ranges: Sub-6GHz and millimeter wave. At present, my country mainly uses Sub-6GHz. This frequency band is characterized by strong signal penetration, but the data transmission speed is slower than Millimeter wave).
It is predicted that iphone12 will use 5-nanometer A14 chip produced by Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. (TSMC). A14 chip is expected to bring faster speed and higher efficiency, which may bring a small extension of battery life to make up for the lack of high power consumption of 5G.
There are rumors that Apple plans not to equip the iPhone 12 with a power adapter or earphones, thereby reducing production costs and packaging costs. Instead, Apple may launch a 20W power adapter, which consumers can buy separately. However, there are rumors that Apple plans to introduce a new data cable design, and the USB-C to lightning data cable may be upgraded.
In addition, today (12th) news, according to foreign media reports, some netizens broke the news that iPhone 12 will have the same wireless charging function as iPhone 11, and the name of wireless charging will return to MagSafe with a power of 15W.
According to the latest news from foreign media, Apple will launch a MagSafe charger for iPhone 12 that supports magnetic connection. For users who have used Apple MacBook laptops in the early years, MagSafe is obviously an unforgettable feature.
Another speculation about the iPhone 12 is whether they will support reverse charging. As Samsung GalaxyS20, Samsung Note 20 Ultra, OnePlus 8Pro and other competing products have wireless charging and reverse wireless charging, Apple may also make a leap in this regard.
It is also worth mentioning today that Guo Mingchi’s latest report is the proportion of iPhone 12 series shipments. Among the shipments of the iPhone 12 series, he expects that the iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max will each account for 20%, and the remaining 40% will all come from the iPhone 12.
Guo Mingchi’s prediction means that in his opinion, the iPhone 12 with a 6.1-inch OLED screen and dual rear cameras will become the best-selling one in the iPhone 12 series.
In the end, what Mingmei wants to say is: near the release of iPhone 12, according to a lot of news, we have got a general impression of it. From the current point of view, iPhone 12 has a lot of exciting places and people. Dissatisfaction. As for whether these revelations are true or false, we will reveal them soon. Judging from this information, is this iPhone 12 worth your expectations?
