Release Date: November 2020

Swappasaurus says...

The iPhone 12 mini may be one of the smallest devices ever launched by Apple, but it still offers a wide range of features. In fact, the iPhone 12 mini’s hardware and technical capabilities are extremely comparable to the base-model iPhone 12. For instance, this device offers the new OLED screen (as opposed to the original LED screen), excellent display resolution (2340 x 1080 pixels), MagSafe wireless charging, and IP68 dust/water resistance. The iPhone 12 mini is also powered by the A14 Bionic Chip processor.

Size and Weight

iPhone 12 Mini Size

The iPhone 12 Mini is even smaller than the original iPhone 6, weighing in at just 4.76 ounces and measuring 5.18 inches (H) by 2.53 inches (W) by 0.29 in (D). It has a diagonal screen size of 5.4 inches.

Screen / Display

iPhone 12 Mini Screen

The iPhone 12 Mini’s display is similar to that of the iPhone 12 in its support of HDR, Dolby Vision, and True Tone. However, this device’s Super Retina XDR OLED display is much smaller than the iPhone 12’s, measuring just 5.4 inches. The difference in size does not negatively impact the iPhone 12 Mini’s display capabilities, which include a display resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels with 476 PPI density. The average brightness for this device is 625 nits, with a maximum brightness of 1200 nits.


iPhone 12 Mini Camera

Despite its small size, the iPhone 12 Mini is in the upper echelon of camera capabilities on account of its dual-rear camera system (much like that of the iPhone 12) and strong front-facing camera. The main camera (wide lens) and secondary camera (ultrawide lens) both offer the standard 12MP resolution, as well as a selfie camera with similar specs (also 12MP). In terms of software, the iPhone 12 Mini includes an accurate auto-focus feature, excellent Night Photography capabilities, and a wide range of stylistic options. While this device does lack a designated telephoto camera (similar to the iPhone 12), its ultrawide lens performs well as an alternative.

Battery / Charging

iPhone 12 Mini Battery

The iPhone 12 Mini features a small but substantial 2,227 mAh lithium-ion battery. Apple advertises 15 hours of video playback and up to 50 hours of audio playback for this device. The iPhone 12 Mini supports 15W MagSafe wireless charging and Fast-Charging, charging up to 50% in 30 minutes. Otherwise, this device utilizes the standard 20W Lightning cable.
