Display and Performance
Less Bezel means more screen display

iPhone 12 Pro supports capacitive touchscreen and multi-touch on the screen of resolution 2532 x 1170 pixels with an aspect ratio of 19.5: 9 as 460 PPI pixels density. The wide-colour P3 screens also boast a 2-million-to-1 contrast ratio, 800 nits maximum brightness, 1,200 nits of max brightness for HDR, and TrueTone support.
Turbocharge with quick wireless charging
iPhone 12 Pro has brought back the MagSafe, adding a magnetic charging and accessory solution. This allows users to easily attach and swap cases and other objects. MagSafe ensures 15-watt charging, but you will need to buy your own 20W USB-C power adapter.
iPhone 12 Pro uses the Li-Ion 2815 mAh non-removable battery. The phone draws power from the battery, charged wirelessly and quickly. Yes, iPhone 12 Pro supports fast-charging with 18W, regaining 50% charge in 30 minutes. It supports USB charging too. Playing multimedia, the charge can last up to 17 hours, apple claims.
Apple’s A14 Bionic is a highlight!
Apple’s A14 Bionic chipset used in the iPhone 12 Pro boosts the Performance standard of the phone. The chipset is expected to clock over 3 GHz, which uses the 5nm process with advanced components atoms wide.
iPhone 12 Pro has Hexa-core CPU, among which two are 3.1 GHz Firestorm and four 1.8GHz Icestorm. With Apple 4-core GPU combinedly, Apple claims the processor to be 50% faster than any other smartphone chip. The chip has used around 11.8 billion transistors functioning together up to 70% faster machine learning accelerators. We can expect about 11 trillion operations per second with the neural engine.
The iPhone 12 Pro comes up with iOS 14.1 and 6GB RAM contributing for the performance along with the A14 Bionic chip. iPhone 12 Pro offers three ranges of internal storage, starting 128GB up to 512GB.
LiDAR scanner along with rear cameras measures how long it takes light to reflect back from objects, creating a depth map of any space you are in. Face ID, accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass and barometer sensors are the contributing factors for effective and reliable performance.
5G on the iPhone 12 Pro makes it a faster performing phone in connectivity grounds. Apple in its flagship phone has praised and hyped for the 5G used in the phone.
iPhones are always popular for camera efficiency and shooting the key moments with them. Users have always relied on the iPhones for its camera ability and iPhone 12 Pro continues its popularity with the extended features of LiDAR scanner for measuring depth. iPhone 12 Pro has continuous shooting, high dynamic range (HDR) mode and burst mode. Photos delivered are of 4000×3000 pixels resolution.
Relive memories, shoot portraits even in the nights
iPhone 12 Pro has quad rear cameras, three each of 12 MP covering wide, telephoto and ultra-wide ranges with 2x optical zoom out, 10x optical zoom in and 4x optical zoom in respectively not excluding the TOF 3D Lidar scanner. Wide camera with f/1.6 aperture can capture 27% more light, for greater details and sharper focus day-night while LiDar can deliver up to 6x faster autofocus in low light.
Night mode comes to both the wide and ultra-wide cameras, LiDAR making the Night mode Portraits possible. A new OIS stabilizes the sensor instead of the lens means the shots are steady, even when you are not and 65mm Telephoto camera helps to zoom in tighter on portraits. This sensor-shift stabilization is found only on DSLR cameras, iPhone 12 Pro has adopted this technology in the phone.
Night mode Portraits on the wide camera can provide you with vivid colour, beautiful bokeh mode as well on any background lights. Given there is an only single light source, LiDAR and our A14 Bionic can render pattern and texture along with realistic colour throughout the room, preserving the depth.
Deep fusion and analysis of pixels in real-time have gone beyond HDR in iPhone 12 Pro, making it possible for bionic to fuse pixels together into a richly final photograph. Machine learning integrated on iPhone 12 Pro can separate subjects from the background, creative controls adjusting the background blur and lights on faces while Smart HDR3 refines highlights, shadows and contours automatically.
Record your videos in Dolby Vision
iPhone 12 Pro jumps from 8-to-10-bit HDR recording to capture about 700 million colours for much more lifelike video. Even better, iPhone 12 Pro records in Dolby vision like the film studios. You can edit them, and using AirPlay you can project your video in big screen to feel differences.
You have got iPhone 12 Pro means now you can take Night mode videos with a tripod to capture scenes having dramatic motion. iPhone 12 Pro is able to record videos even at 4K resolution at 60fps, as well as supporting 1080p slow-motion at 240fps, Dolby vision HDR up to 60fps, recording stereo audio, and supporting Audio Zoom.
Selfie lovers can enjoy night mode selfie
Night mode is enabled in front camera, bringing low light details and natural colour to you. Deep fusion, Smart HDR3 and Dolby vision recording integrated with TrueDepth selfie camera mean you look your best on selfies in every light. 12 MP Selfie cameras with depth and biometrics sensor confirm the details.
