Apple has launched 4 new iPhone 12 models for 2020. The base model iPhone is called the iPhone 12 Mini, which has a 5.4-inch OLED display. The next one in the line is the iPhone 12 with a 6.1-inch OLED display. Then we move up to the iPhone 12 Pro which too has a 6.1-inch OLED display but has a higher resolution. The top of the line iPhone 12 Pro Max has a 6.7-inch OLED Display.
iPhone 12 Mini
For those who were waiting for a small flagship-level smartphone for a couple of years will be pleased to know that the iPhone 12 Mini is just that. Don’t let the ‘mini’ in the name fool you. It is just as fast as the iPhone 12 Pro Max and even uses the same primary camera. The display too is OLED and like any other Apple phone with an OLED display, it should be great too.
If I had to buy a new phone and the phone had to be an iPhone, I would definitely pick the iPhone 12. It is priced just right at $799 and it comes with all the features I am looking for in a flagship smartphone.
The iPhone 12 features a 6.1-inch Full HD+ OLED display (most probably made by Samsung) and the colors and contrast should be as good as the one found on the iPhone 12 Pro. It is a major upgrade from the 720-ish LCD display featured on the iPhone 11.

Then there’s the processor. The new iPhone 12 is powered by the best SoC on any smartphone- the A14 chip from Apple. You can expect it to play through everything you throw at it. When it comes to performance, you really shouldn’t even worry for a couple of years.
iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max
For anyone looking to buy a flagship Apple phone, the iPhone 12 Pro and the 12 Pro Max is the way to go. Both the phones use identical hardware and only differ in screen size, battery capacity, and the telephoto lens. If you are someone who doesn’t like too big phones, the iPhone 12 Pro is going to be a great choice for you. The battery life on the phone is excellent and it has all the features you would normally look for on a 2020 flagship phone (except for the 120Hz display).
The iPhone 12 Pro and the 12 Pro Max can record 4K 60p videos. They are also the first phone to feature Dolby Vision. Overall, this phone is for those who are more into professional photography and videography. For an average customer, the iPhone 12 should be more than enough.
It’s worth noting that Apple hasn’t increased the prices on the Pro models of the iPhone. The iPhone 12 Pro starts at $999 while the 12 Pro Max starts at $1,099. Apple has doubled the base storage capacity on the new iPhone Pros which is great news. Both the 12 Pro and the 12 Pro Max now start at 128GB of internal storage.
Will the new iPhones come to Nepal? Probably. Expect these phones to hit Nepal by the end of the year. However, don’t expect the new iPhone 12 models to be cheap. As always, be prepared to pay 60% more than the US prices.
