The iPhone 12 Pro screen is protected by a new glass called Ceramic Shield that has been jointly developed with Corning. This glass is extremely resistant, more than any other smartphone glass available today and, according to Apple, the resistance to falls has been increased 4 times.

The new iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max have slightly larger screens than their predecessors, going from 5.8 ″ to 6.1 ″ in the “Pro” model and from 6.5 “to 6.7” in the “Pro Max” model. However, this does not mean that the size of the phone has increased but that they are practically the same. The new iPhone 12 Pro have the Apple A14 Bionic chip, which is the first chip for mobile devices built in a 5nm process. In practice, this means that the power consumption of the chip will be less than equal power. This chip has a 6-core CPU – 4 high-efficiency cores and 2 high-performance cores – which increases processing performance by 40% and a new graphics architecture with a 4-core GPU.

The iPhone 12 Pro has three rear cameras:

  • Ultra wide angle camera (13mm) with f / 2.4 aperture and Night mode
  • Wide-angle camera (26mm) with 7-element lens with f / 1.6 aperture and optical lens stabilization.
  • 2x telephoto camera with f / 2.0 aperture

  • Wide angle camera with a larger sensor (1.7 μm pixel size) and optical sensor shift stabilization.
  • 2.5x telephoto camera with f / 2.2 aperture

Apple has included a new optical stabilization system in the iPhone 12 Pro Max thanks to the sensor shift technology (sensor shifting), which allows to compensate much better for the movements of the phone than the traditional system.

When it comes to video recording, the new iPhone 12 Pro offers 10-bit HDR video recording for the first time, which means you can capture 60 times more colors than before. In addition, the iPhone 12 Pro are the first smartphones capable of recording video in Dolby Vision format at [email protected] You can even edit video recorded in Dolby Vision and apply filters to recorded videos without the need for a computer. Apple has incorporated a LiDAR scanner to the set of rear cameras that allows to ask for the depth with much more precision, which is useful in Augmented Reality applications. This scanner also facilitates faster focusing, especially in low light conditions.
