Viral video: the real iPhone 12 mini was not designed by Apple

The smartphones they grew so much in dimensions that now a model with a 5.4-inch screen is a small variant. That size was extensive not many years ago and for some users it still is, especially for those who miss those editions that were around 4 inches.

In the series iPhone 12, the “mini” version is precisely 5.4 inches. But the real small variant of the phone did not create it Apple but an enthusiast with a lot of skill and also a great deal of patience. A video circulates on the networks that shows a meticulous recreation of the smartphone, with its own bag, its box and really surprising details.

As you can see below, the replica is so tiny that it must be manipulated with a tweezers for delicate work. As we said, it has its own bag and from the box (which even has that transparent paper of the new products!) The iPhone 12 mini with red casing and the tiny charging cable. As if that were not enough, in this piece we see a simulation of the screen on.

The mini edition of the series iPhone Apple 12 (the original) has a 5.4-inch screen with a resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels. Its body is 7.4 millimeters thick and weighs 135 grams. Like its peers, 5G debuts on this smartphone in Apple’s phone catalog. The highlights of his hadware: A14 processor; 4GB of RAM; 64GB, 128GB and 256GB variants for internal storage; and a double rear camera.

Problems for iPhone 12 mini

This week we found out that this small variant of the smartphone series has a malfunction, as reported by some buyers in forums and on Apple’s official support. In particular, the screen does not work when locked and only activates when the phone charger is plugged in.

Some users say that sometimes they cannot activate the flashlight or launch the camera from the lock screen. On the other hand, unlocking does work with fingers other than the thumb, although that is not very comfortable in a device designed to be used with one hand.

At the moment the manufacturer did not offer a solution for this problem and it is not clear how widespread the problem is or if they are isolated cases. According to EngadgetIn any case, this is not the best debut for the iPhone that “many see as the most outstanding model of the new series.”
