iPhone 12 vs. iPhone 11
Based on the rumors we've heard so far, here's how the iPhone 12 will compare to the iPhone 11 -- and if iPhone12 is worth the upgrade ?
The biggest differences between the iPhone 11 and iPhone 12 will likely be the specs and dimensions of course. This is what we're expecting from the iPhone 12.
Four iPhone 12 models
It's possible that we'll see for iPhone12 launched on Tuesday: the
iPhone 12 Mini (5.4-inch) the
iPhone 12 and 12 Pro (6.1-inch),
iPhone 12 Pro Max (6.7-inch).
For comparison, there are only three iPhone 11s: the iPhone 11 (6.1-inch), the iPhone 11 Pro (5.8-inch) and the iPhone 11 Pro Max (6.5-inch).
Increased refresh rates
There is speculation that the iPhone 12's display will have a 120Hz refresh rate and a Promotion Display, which you can currently find in the iPadPro. Most phones (including the iPhone 11) refresh at 60 frames per second, or 60Hz, but some, like the Galaxy s20and the OnePlus 8 Pro, refresh at 120Hz. The higher the refresh rate, the faster and smoother a phone feels when scrolling through apps and websites.
As is typically the case with new iPhones, you can expect the iPhone 12's cameras to be upgraded over the iPhone 11. The iPhone 11 has a photo Night Mode and an ultrawide-angle camera that can add extra detail in photos, along with a great video camera. There have been rumors that the iPhone 12 may add a time-of-flight camera, like the Galaxy Note 10 Plus has, to help capture depth information. This could do a number of things like help with AR mapping, but could also mean you finally get the ability to have portrait mode in video.
The addition of 5G
One of the iPhone 12's expected biggest new features is next- gen 5G cellular connectivity. Apple's event invitation starts with "Hi, Speed," leading us to believe that the new phones will finally get 5G connectivity, as virtually all new Android phones arriving in the US already have. This means the phones could tap into the high-speed wireless network on the go -- which might seem slightly less exciting during the pandemic , as we're spending more time at home, but will still future-proof your device for the rise of 5G.
