The starting price of the base varaint of the iPhone 12 Mini is from Rs. 69,900
iPhone 12 Lineup Features and Specifications
We had seen lots of leaks and rumors in the past about the iPhone 12’s design and it is exactly the same for that matter. It looks a lot like the older generation iPhone like iPhone 5 series with that boxy design. We expected that Apple might make the notch less intrusive this time by making it a bit smaller, but the notch remains the same. The camera placement also looks exactly like the one in the iPhone 11 series. iPhone 12 and 12 Mini comes with an Aluminium frame while the 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max come with a stainless steel frame.
When it comes to the display side of things, the four new iPhone 12 models come in three different screen sizes. The first one, iPhone 12 Mini comes with a 5.4-inch display, while the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro come with a 6.1-inch screen and the iPhone 12 Pro Max comes with a massive 6.7-inch display. All four of them come with Super Retina XDR (OLED) panels.
This time, Apple has partnered with Corning to add a new ceramic + glass shield protection to the front. The notch is still in the same size housing all the necessary face ID sensors and the front-facing camera itself.
As far as the optic side of things are concerned, these are the camera specs of the new iPhone 12 Series.

Under the hood
Under the hood, the phone is powered by the new Apple A14 Bionic chip which is made from a 5nm process node. It is the exact same chip that we first saw in the iPad Air last month. The base storage variant in 12 and 12 Mini is 64GB while the base variant of 12 Pro and 12Pro Max comes with 128GB of storage. No idea regarding the RAM is available yet.
