So earlier this month, Apple introduced its new iPhone 12 at 1am Malaysian time during the virtual Apple event to fans and potential customers.
Now good news(?) for Malaysians, the new iPhone 12 lineup will be available for pre-order starting this November 6 and Digi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd (Digi) will offer the new iPhone 12 lineup, including iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max, iPhone 12, and iPhone 12 mini with the smarter instalment plan, Digi PhoneFreedom 365!
Though the phone(s) and what comes (or doesn’t) in the box has been criticised, the iPhone 12 series does have some new updates and features.
During the “Hi, Speed” special event, Apple claimed that the new iPhone 12 line covers the most 5G bands in the market. The iPhone 12 also comes with a Smart Data Mode that dynamically switches the connectivity of the phone from 5 G to LTE when the speed is not needed by users.
It also comes with a Smart Data Mode that dynamically switches the connectivity of the phone from 5 G to LTE when the speed is not needed by users. 2 models; the iPhone 12 mini and the standard iPhone 12 are powered by the 5nm A14 Bionic processor which features 6-core CPU with 2nd generation ML accelerator, 4-core GPU, and 16-core Neural Engine.
Apple also stated that MagSafe chargers can deliver up to 15W of charging power which is double the maximum power rating that the iPhone 12 series can support for Qi wireless charging.
Other than Apple not including the charger in the packaging anymore when you purchase the phone to be more “environmental friendly”, there are a few things that fans expected but did not receive as well such as the quad-cameras and a smaller or less visible notch.
But hey, you can’t win them all. That’s life. Anyways, through a press note, Digi announced that the iPhone 12 lineup will be available in Malaysia on November 13 (Friday). The pricing will be as below:
