New Apple leak reveals iPhone 12 Pro

Published

on

Apple’s redesigned iPhone 12 line-up is getting more troubled with every new leak. And now the alarm bells are ringing.

In a shocking new report, Fast Company has revealed that the iPhone 12 Pro will come with lower grade 5G capabilities usually reserved for midrange 5G smartphones, while the iPhone 12 Pro Max will only get premium 5G functionality in a handful of countries.

Considering the increased prices already leaked for these models, Apple’s design decision may backfire.

Breaking this down, Fast Company explains that Apple only intends to offer premium (mmWave) 5G with iPhone 12 Pro Max models sold in Korea, Japan and the US.

Everywhere else, the iPhone 12 Pro Max will be sold with the cheaper, slower Sub-6Hz 5G while the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Plus and iPhone 12 Pro will only ship with this standard.

As Fast Company notes, “If Sub-6 5G is a Camry, millimeter-wave 5G is a Mercedes S-Class.”

So what could’ve prompted this baffling decision?

I suspect another poor decision: Apple is downgrading the batteries in all iPhone 12 models.

mmWave increases power drain, so it looks set to be just the latest feature culled after equally power-hungry 120Hz ProMotion displays were also placed on the chopping block.

But there is one big upside. And that is Fast Company’s source has corroborated earlier leaks that Apple will release a 4G-only iPhone 12 Pro, early next year.

Not only will that model now have a smaller cellular speed gap than expected, but it will also have considerably better battery life on 4G while Apple is understood to be pricing it at up to $200 less than its 5G counterpart.

Throw in the fact that the 4G iPhone 12 Pro will enjoy every other benefit (including the new chassis design, big performance gains and a radical camera upgrade) and it looks like the standout upgrade option.

Especially with Apple’s iPhone 12 release date slipping further and further.

Xiaomi Mi 10T and Mi 10T Pro specs leak in full

Published

on

Xiaomi is bringing three Mi 10T smartphones on September 30 – Mi 10T Lite, Mi 10T, and Mi 10T Pro – and the specs sheet of the latter two just leaked giving us a much better idea of what to expect. As previously speculated, the key difference will be that the vanilla version will come with a 64MP camera, while the Pro option will come with the larger 108MP sensor.

The only other difference, according to these sheets, is the Mi 10T Pro will have a 256GB storage option in addition to the 128GB that will be available on both phones.

Here’s a quick rundown of the specs, some of them already from previous leaks – a Snapdragon 865 on the inside, coupled with a 5G modem at some markets. The RAM will be 8 GB LPDDR5, with the storage also being the latest on the market – UFS 3.1.

The screen will be a 6.67” LCD with 1080p resolution and 20:9 aspect ratio, meaning the fingerprint scanner will be on the side, doubling as a power key. The display will come with 144Hz refresh rate.

The batteries on the Xiaomi Mi 10T and Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro will also be identical at 5,000 mAh with 33W fast charging support. Bluetooth 5.1 and Wi-Fi 6 will be on board, as well as an IR blaster, but no 3.5mm audio jack.Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro and Xiaomi Mi 10T renders

The prices rumors are all over the place for now – from €550 to €700 – those might be explained with version or market variances, but we’ll know for sure come Wednesday.
