Apple unveils iPhone 12 Pro with 5G, featuring new design and LiDAR
Apple has announced the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max with 5G, featuring an all-new design with Ceramic Shield, LiDAR Scanner, Super Retina XDR display, and more.
Featuring the most 5G bands on any smartphone, iPhone 12 Pro is set to offer the broadest 5G coverage worldwide. Launching in four stainless steel finishes, including graphite, silver, gold, and pacific blue, iPhone 12 Pro will be available to pre-order on Friday, October 16, with the iPhone 12 Pro Max beginning pre-orders on Friday, November 6.
iPhone 12 Pro boasts a new flatter design with an edge-to-edge Super Retina XDR display, protected by the all-new Ceramic Shield front cover, which provides the biggest jump in durability ever on iPhone. Like the iPhone 12, the iPhone 12 Pro uses the Apple-designed A14 Bionic chip with a 16-core Neural Engine — for an 80 percent increase in performance — that is capable of completing 11 trillion operations per second.
iPhone 12 Pro features the new seven-element lens Wide camera with an ƒ/1.6 aperture, the fastest ever on an iPhone, for 27 percent improved low-light performance in photo and video; the Ultra Wide camera with a 120-degree field of view, and a 52 mm focal length Telephoto camera with an optical zoom range of 4x.
One of the flagship features of the iPhone 12 Pro is the LiDAR Scanner, which offers faster, more realistic AR experiences and improves autofocus by 6x in low-light scenes for more accuracy and reduced capture time in photos and videos.
iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max will be available in 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB models in graphite, silver, gold, and pacific blue starting at $999 and $1,099, respectively.
