12 Pro Design / Display
The body build and design of the iPhone 12 is best described as a combination of the iPhone 5 and the iPhone 11 Pro. It comes with the flat edges of the iPhone 5 and has the aesthetics of the iPhone 11 Pro.
The smartphone features Gorilla Glass on its rear panel and front and this is held together by a stainless steel frame unlike the iPhone 12 and the iPhone 12 Mini that has an Aluminum frame.
Another eye grabbing feature of the iPhone 12 is that it boasts of an iP68 certification for dust and water and resistance, making it a durable device.
In fact, it is widely believed that you can submerge the iPhone in up to 6m of water for 30 minutes, and it will still be in optimum condition.
So in a situation that the smartphone falls into water, so long as you brought it out before the 30 minutes elapsed, you have no need for worry.
Still on the strength of the display, it has a ceramic shield setup, which is a layer of ceramic crystals inside the glass layer of the display.
The display is a 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR OLED Panel with a resolution of 1170 x 2532 and a density of 460 PPI.
There is no mention of a 120Hz refresh rate and this does not sit well with some people since some smartphones such as the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G comes with that feature.
Magsafe is a feature that has been introduced to the iPhone 12 series. What this implies is that the iPhone lovers can really enjoy the wireless chargers. In addition to that, they can also make the most of the circular magnet engraved in the Magsafe system to attach other accessories.
12 Pro Cameras

Still on the rear camera setup, there is also a 12MP ultra wide camera hinged at 120˚, with an aperture of f/2.4 and finally, there is a Light Detection and Ranging sensor (LiDAR), which was also seen on the iPad Pro 2020.
The function of the LiDAR sensor is to improve augmented reality as well as autofocus in the dark.
For your video recording needs, you would love to know that the rear camera system has the ability to shoot at 4k @ 60fps.
While it is not the best out there as the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 ultra boasts of 8k video recording, it still gets the job done very well.
But on the bright side, Apple introduced a New Pro RAW feature as well as 10 Bit Dolby vision HDR 4k 60fps video recording, which will make videos recorded on iPhones come out amazing.
And now to the front facing camera, the smartphone is equipped with a 12MP camera with an aperture of f/2.2. It also comes with a 3D depth sensor.
On the hardware department, what the iPhone 12 Pro offers is similar to what is obtainable with the iPhone 12. The device is equipped with Apple’s A14 Bionic chip, which is the world’s first 5nm processor.
