Apple will soon launch the new iPhone 12 series and ahead of its launch, there are a number of rumours which point towards the company launching an iPhone 12 Mini.
This the Cupertino-based tech giant is expected to launch new iPhones next month and a new report has claimed that one model with a 5.4-inch display may be called the iPhone 12 Mini. The Apple iPhone's new line-up will likely include a 5.4-inch variant, two 6.1-inch models, and a high-end 6.7-inch variant.
Three expected sizes of iPhone 12, with the 5.4-inch model being the "iPhone 12 mini," the 6.7-inch model being the "iPhone 12 Pro Max," and the two 6.1-inch models being the "iPhone 12 / iPhone 12 Pro," reports MacRumors. The “mini” naming scheme isn’t new. According to the report, the iPhone 12 mini would be the first iPhone with the "mini" moniker, which has been seen on the iPad mini, Mac mini, and iPod mini. The iPhone mini would be smaller than 2019’s iPhone model, which was iPhone 11 Pro and had a screen of 5.8 inches.
