While multiple 5G capable Android smartphones have been launched already, iPhones still lack this crucial feature. With the iPhone 12 series, Apple is finally expected to make the transition to 5G connectivity. However, the feature might not be coming to all four smartphones. According to The Wall Street Journal’s analyst Tom Forte (via Gizchina), the iPhone 12 Mini will not feature 5G connectivity.

iPhone 12 Mini: Everything we know so far

The iPhone 12 Mini is expected to have a 5.4-inch screen. The iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max on the other hand are set to feature 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch screens respectively. The regular iPhone 12 will also reportedly come with a 6.1-inch display. This will be the first time an iPhone will sport the ‘Mini’ moniker. Apple has featured the same in its iPad line-up with the iPad Mini, which was first introduced back in 2012.

Compared to the iPhone SE, which also has a compact form factor, the iPhone 12 Mini is likely to sport newer specifications and a more modern design. Apple is set to reduce the size of the notch and introduce an iPad Pro like design with flatter edges. Additionally, the 12 Mini is expected to feature an OLED display, the A14 Bionic chipset, and a dual-camera setup at the back. The latest rumors point towards October 13 being the launch date for the iPhone 12 family.
