iPhone 12 VS iPhone 11.
iPhone 12 vs iPhone 11: Prices
The iPhone 12’s pricing won’t be confirmed until this fall, but we’ve seen one iPhone 12 price leak that predicts the cost for all four models. The iPhone 12 would start at $649 for the 5.4-inch unit and the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 would start at $749. The iPhone 11 has a starting price of $699.
So if these rumors prove accurate, the direct replacement of the iPhone 11 would cost only $50 more with the addition of 5G. And the smaller iPhone 12 model would cost $50 less than the iPhone 11.
For the iPhone 12 Pro, the leak has the prices staying the same from last year’s comparable models. The 6.1-inch iPhone 12 would start at $999 and the iPhone 12 Pro Max would sell for $1,099. For now we would take these prices with a grain of salt, but they seem promising.
Just keep in mind that Apple typically lowers the prices on its current phones when it releases new ones. For example, the iPhone 11 could drop to $599 if Apple decides to keep it around past this fall. (The iPhone XR’s price fell from $749 to $599 when the iPhone 11 replaced it.)
iPhone 12 vs iPhone 11: Design
The iPhone 12 should be getting an overdue makeover as Apple’s flagship. The device will reportedly feature flatter sides instead of the iPhone 11’s rounded design, similar to the iPad Pro 2020.
And while it won’t be a true full-screen phone, the iPhone 12’s notch is said to be shrinking, made possible by moving the speaker out of that area. In terms of colors, we’ve heard that Apple may offer a new deep blue hue, but it’s not clear whether this will be for the iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 Pro Max.
iPhone 12 vs iPhone 11: Display
All four iPhone 12 models will reportedly feature OLED displays, while the iPhone 11 offered an LCD screen. There are several benefits of OLED vs LCD, including deeper blacks, more vibrant colors and wider viewing angles.
However, only the iPhone 12 Pro is expected to offer a 120Hz ProMotion display, which would give you smoother scrolling and animations, as well as faster motion when playing videos and supported games. The iPhone 11 has a 60Hz refresh rate.
Even better, unlike Android phones, the ProMotion display on the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max should be smart enough to adjust its refresh rate on the fly.
iPhone 12 vs iPhone 11: Specs and performance
The iPhone 12 will likely feature Apple’s new A14 Bionic processor, which promises MacBook Pro-like performance based on leaked benchmarks. This will reportedly be Apple’s first 5nm chip, compared to 7nm for the A13 Bionic. This should result in better efficiency as well.
Apple never lists the RAM of its phones, but the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro reportedly feature 4GB of RAM. A report from UBS analysts picked up by MacRumors says that the iPhone 12 will have 4GB of RAM while the iPhone 12 Pro lineup will get 6GB.
