About the iPhone 12 mini

review of the 12 mini, Macworld editor David Price said: “The 12 mini is the best of both worlds, combining the all-screen design of recent iPhones with the petite chassis of the older ones. It also happens to be brilliantly featured and specced, with superb cameras and processing power to burn.”
As for those cameras? You get dual 12MP-wide and ultra-wide sensors on the back with 2x optical zoom and a 12MP front camera. The 12 mini also supports 4K video recording at up to 60fps on both rear and selfie cameras.
