Apple had recently announced the launch of their new flagship smartphone, the iPhone 12. Every year Apple creates the most innovative high-tech smartphones in the market and this year’s line-up is no different.

The iPhone 12 comes in four models; iPhone 12 Mini (5.4in), iPhone 12 (6.1in), iPhone 12 Pro (6.1 in) and iPhone 12 Pro Max (6.7in).

The iPhone 12 and 12 Mini will be offered in black, white, red, green, and blue colors. On the other hand, the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max will feature silver, gold, graphite, and pacific blue.

The iPhone 12 models will come with the A14 Bionic, the fastest chip in a smartphone. Featuring an edge to edge OLED display, ceramic glass with up to 4 times more glass protection and their improved Night mode on every camera, the iPhone 12 seems to have it all.

The iPhone 12 model, the expected choice for those who want the most bang for their buck, is now 11 percent thinner, 15 percent smaller and 16 percent lighter in comparison to the iPhone 11.

Apple is also introducing the new turbocharging capability and MagSafe accessories, a shielded wallet that magnetically attaches to the back of the new smartphone.

Moreover, all the new models will finally support 5G, a feature that Ooredoo sim owners can take advantage of. It is also important to mention that earphones and charging plugs will not come included in the iPhone box.
