At 1 am on October 14th, Beijing time, the much-anticipated iPhone conference finally arrived. Due to the epidemic this year, the production and R&D of Apple’s series of products has also been affected to a certain extent, unlike in previous years, mobile phones, tablets, watches, etc. Release, but postponed the release of the mobile phone alone. On the 14th, the latest four iPhone12 series mobile phones were finally unveiled.
First of all, in terms of performance, the iPhone 12 is of course the A14 bionic processor, 5nm process, the neural network computing power is increased by 80%, the CPU performance is increased by 50%, and the GPU performance is increased by 50%. In short, the iPhone 12 is the strongest chip, probably in all mobile phones. The chip is also the strongest.
Interestingly, in order to show the performance of the A14 chip, this time Apple used the “League of Legends” mobile game version to test. When playing “League of Legends” with iPhone 12, there will be special optimizations, which may also be to capture Chinese consumption. The heart of the reader.
In terms of imaging systems, Apple still maintains its own persistence. At a time when more and more manufacturers choose to use AI to participate in optimizing imaging quality, Apple still feels that what you see is what you get is the best, but Apple does not reject algorithm optimization. , Count the upgrades of the new iPhone’s imaging system, whether it is OIS optical image stabilization, HDR and 10bit, open 4K60 frame video recording, and telephoto lens, it is a very pragmatic upgrade. Although these are not uncommon among Apple’s Android counterparts.
In terms of memory, the iPhone 12 has three gears of 64/128/256GB to choose from. To be honest, I really want to complain about it. Nowadays, 64G of memory is not enough.
On 5G, the iPhone 12 supports 5G, which is not a small highlight, and Apple has also worked hard on 5G. Cook even asked Hans, the executive officer of US telecom operator Verizon, to explain The changes that 5G brings to this era.
In terms of 5G network, Apple has given a more user-friendly design. The mobile phone has a mode called Smart Data Mode, which will determine whether the user needs it, and then automatically select 4G or 5G. The user can also specify that some use requires a lot of 5G networks are only used for data apps, such as video, and 4G networks such as text chat are sufficient to extend the battery life of the device.
It is worth mentioning that, as previously exposed by the media, Apple announced that for environmental protection considerations, the iPhone 12 series will no longer come with a random charger and earphones. This means that every iPhone sold will consume fewer raw materials and use smaller packaging. Of course, Apple’s move may also be intended to increase profits and reduce transportation costs.
In addition, in terms of battery life, the iPhone 12 is 2775mAh. Although it has shrunk compared to the iPhone 11, TSMC said that the 5nm chip can reduce the power consumption by 30% compared with the previous generation 7nm chip, so the overall battery life will not change much. And when it comes to charging, the iPhone 12 also has a significant change that supports MagSafe magnetic wireless charging technology. The device is accurately positioned and paired with the wireless charger through the attraction of a magnet to improve charging efficiency. Old MacBook users must be familiar with this Technology.
In terms of price, the iPhone 12 series are specifically:
iPhone 12 mini 64GB version 5499 yuan, 128GB version 5999 yuan, 256GB version 6799 yuan, iPhone 12 64GB version 6299 yuan, 128GB version 6799 yuan, 256GB version 7599 yuan.
iPhone 12 Pro 128GB version is 8499 yuan, 256GB version is 9299 yuan, 512GB version is 11099 yuan, iPhone 12 Pro Max 128GB version is 9299 yuan, 256GB version is 10099 yuan, 512GB version is 11899 yuan.
In terms of release time, the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro will be available for pre-sale on October 16, while the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max will have to wait until November 6th.
Due to factors such as taxes, exchange rates, and other factors, the price of iPhone 12 is still the Bank of China>Hong Kong version>US version. For example, the iPhone 12 mini Hong Kong version starts at HK$5,999, which is about RMB 5,222. But considering the warranty issue, the Hong Kong version is obviously more cost-effective in terms of the official price, after all, it can directly enjoy the warranty provided by the Apple Store in the mainland.
In addition, Mingmei’s infinite summary:
The phone is similar every year, and the “quantity” is different every year. There are a lot of praise and scolding about the new iPhone every year, but whether the product is good or not depends on the market performance, because it allows big guys to spend real money The things to support will not be bad.
Whether it is Huami OV or Apple Samsung, the reason why they can take pride in the global mobile phone market is because their products or strategies can withstand the test of the market, and the person who knows the iPhone best is neither you nor me, but Cook, because He is the real “stock buster” of the iPhone~
In addition, aside from these sentimental things, if you must ask me whether this new generation of iPhone 12 is worth buying, my answer to you will be:
If you are not a consumer who has a Glory account that has been completely bound to the IOS area, and for various reasons, it is still a good choice.
After all, our predecessors Cao Xueqin and Wang Shouyi had made accurate predictions for this conference many years ago:
Twelve hairpins (poor), thirteen incense.
Finally, what Mingmei Wuxian wants to say is: Although Apple’s new iPhone 12 series released this time is controversial, hundreds of millions of apple fans around the world will continue to move forward with iPhone 12. After all, the powerful A14+iOS 14 is really fragrant. The typical match.
