Shortly after the official unveil at Apple‘s “Hi, Speed” event and successful pre-order period, the arrival of the iPhone 12 series is almost upon us.

Starting October 23, both the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro will be available for customers to purchase online, Apple locations and authorized resellers. Serving as the baseline version of the flagship device, the iPhone 12 comes in five aluminum finishes, including “Blue,” “Green,” “Black,” “White” and “(PRODUCT)RED” with 64, 128 and 256GB options. While the higher-end iPhone 12 Pro comes in four stainless steel finishes, including “Graphite,” “Silver,” “Gold” and “Pacific Blue with 128, 256 and 512GB options.

Despite the color and storage size differences, the iPhone 12 series marks a return to a flat edge design reminiscent of Apple’s iPhone 4 release. Complementing the angular look is the new Super Retina XDR display which is 11 percent thinner, 15 percent smaller and 16 percent lighter than previous displays. On the back of the phone introduces Apple’s Ceramic Shield finish that is four times more resistant to damage when dropped. On the performance side, the iPhone 12 line is centered around Apple’s proprietary A14 Bionic chip constructed with a bleeding-edge 5-nanometer manufacturing process that fits 11.8 billion transistors for lower power consumption for a given amount of work. Additionally, the new series helps usher in both the use of 5G broadband cellular networks and MagSafe charging that falls in line with Apple’s environmental goals.

Starting at $799 USD, the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro will be available beginning October 23 online, at Apple locations and from authorized resellers. Pre-Orders for the accompanying iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max will begin November 6 with availability beginning November 13.

#hypelife: 5GGGGG 到底有多快?HYPEBEAST 實測 Apple iPhone 12 Pro 與 iPhone 12 – 千呼萬喚,缺席了本年第一回 @apple 秋季發佈會後,Apple iPhone 12 Pro 與 iPhone 12 終在上週舉行的第二回發佈會中正式登場。本次全新系列的 iPhone 型號以「Hi, Speed」為題,搭載提供 5G 網速的機件,一舉推出 4 台機型:iPhone 12、iPhone 12 Mini、iPhone 12 Pro 與 iPhone 12 Pro Max。 – 早前有報導指出,在歷來各款 iPhone 型號當中,以 iPhone 6 和 iPhone 6 Plus 為最暢銷型號,不少學者將這股現象歸功於 6 在答應市場需求與除舊立新(更大顯示屏幕且保留一般耳機接頭)的平衡之上。按著這個生產路線與用家需求推敲下去,那麼 iPhone 12 的邊緣設計與 5G 技術真有機會超越這部於 5 年內達 2.4 億台總銷量的經典機型,成 Apple 的智能手機新贏家嗎?對此,Apple 表現出滿滿的自信,並揚言要在本年內售出 8,000 萬部 iPhone 12,而產品的首日預購量亦反映出超越 iPhone 11 達 2 倍的差距,或許意味著 Apple 的預言真有機會實現。 – 這部眾望所歸的全新旗艦手機亦將在明天正式於香港地區上架,HYPEBEAST 特此實測 iPhone 12 Pro 與 iPhone 12 各項重點功能,供大家先飽眼福。 – Video: Keith Hui/@hypebeastzh
