AC Podcast 497: iPhone 12 vs. Pixel 5 Cameras; OnePlus; Foldables

Daniel and Hayato welcome special guest Raymond Wong of Input for an in-depth conversation about iPhone 12 and his direct comparison to the Google Pixel camera system. There's also a segment about OnePlus. The underdog has historically placed customers and value first, but some of their decisions have made us wonder if they are losing their way. Foldable phones partially serve as a new product category. Rectangular slabs will still be around for quite awhile, but they are making mobile devices a lot more interesting. And they're definitely starting to justify their existence.

iPhone 12 'a step behind' Android competition in 5G battery tests

Image
The impact of 5G was also shown when compared to last year's 4G iPhone 11. What you need to know Tom's Guide has put the iPhone 12 through its paces in a new battery test. Unfortunately, the iPhone 12 seems to lag behind some of its Android competitors when it comes to 5G. Testing also revealed just how big an impact 5G will have on performance compared to last year. Testing of Apple's new iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro has revealed that it may lag behind competing Android devices when it comes to battery life whilst using 5G. Fresh test results from Tom's Guide have brought the issue to light. From their report: We've run the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro through our battery test, and the results don't bring the best news. Compared to the Android competition, Apple's new phones are a step behind those devices on our best phone battery life list, especially over 5G networks. Here's how the Tom's Guide battery test works. It surfs the web

iPhone 12 May Launch Earlier Than Usual in South Korea

Image
The upcoming iPhone 12 lineup may launch earlier than usual in South Korea, reports The Korea Herald . South Korean telecoms firms speaking to The Korea Herald have said that the ‌iPhone 12‌ lineup will launch ahead of its usual schedule. Normally, the release of new iPhones in South Korea comes about one month after launch in the United States. Last year, the iPhone 11 arrived in South Korea on October 25, considerably later than its September 20 launch in the U.S. South Korea was the first to commercialize 5G telecommunications in April 2019, and as of July this year, the country already has almost eight million 5G users. South Korea is expected to be a key market for Apple since the ‌iPhone 12‌ lineup will be the first with 5G, so this may explain the earlier launch. Crucially, the ‌iPhone 12‌ Pro Max may be the first smartphone available in South Korea to support the high-frequency 28GHz band for 5G communications, making it considerably more appealing to those with acces

iPhone 12 Dummy Unit Images Feature iPad Pro-Style Design

Leaker Sonny Dickson has today shared several images depicting what he claims are dummy units of Apple's upcoming iPhone 12 lineup. Images of iPhone dummy units usually appear every year, just a few months ahead of Apple's usual September-October launch timeframe. They are usually based on CAD schematics sourced from the Chinese supply chain, much like the molds leaked last week . Such dummies are often used to aid case-makers before the official reveal. The images mostly conform with details we already know, with the device sporting an iPad Pro-style design with flat edges. Apple is expected to launch four iPhones this year, across three sizes of 5.4, 6.1, and 6.7 inches. Dickson's images give a clear comparison of the three new sizes. The camera setups, however, do not mirror what is expected. Previous leaks have largely agreed that the two ‌iPhone 12‌ models in 5.4 and 6.1 inches will have dual camera setups, while the two ‌iPhone 12‌ Pro models in 6.1 a
