Apple unveils its flagship 5G phones, the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max

At Apple’s iPhone event on Tuesday, the company introduced a range of new phones, led by the just-announced flagships: the iPhone 12 Pro, starting at $999, and iPhone 12 Pro Max, starting at $1099. The new 5G-ready devices sport an all-screen Super Retina XDR display, the A14 Bionic chip, a Ceramic Shield front cover, LiDAR Scanner, and of course, the iPhone line’s best camera system.

iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max will be available in 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB configurations and four stainless steel finishes, including graphite, silver, gold, and pacific blue.

The iPhone 12 will feature Apple’s new A14 Bionic processor, and is shrugging off the rounded corners of its most recent predecessors in favor of flatter edges reminiscent of iPhone 5.

All four models will support 5G, although there may a fifth model set to release in 2021 with LTE only, for a smaller price tag. 

We didn’t get an update about the smartphone at Apple’s Time Flies event on September 15 because the iPhone 12 is getting its own dedicated launch event next week.

iPhone 11 vs. Galaxy S20: Apple and Samsung’s flagship phones compared

Apple and Samsung are the two biggest phone-makers in the world, and their current flagship phones are some of the best you can buy. (Though the new Motorola Edge Plus is a worthy competitor). As the base models for their latest lines, Apple’s iPhone 11 and Samsung’s Galaxy S20 are also the least expensive models, starting at $699, £729 and AU$1,199 (64GB) and $999, £899 and AU$1,499, respectively. (The prices listed for the Galaxy S20 are for the 128GB model with 5G — though there are cheaper 4G Galaxy S20 variants sold in the UK and Australia.) We’ll see how the rumored iPhone 12 stacks up when it is finally released, potentially very soon. Apple also released the more affordable iPhone SE, and Samsung recently added the Galaxy S20 FE to its lineup, another alternative for the budget-conscious.
