According to the Xiaomi 12 renders circulating online, Xiaomi 12 will not use the design of the under-screen camera. In order to improve the selfie quality of the phone, it uses a perforated screen design, similar to the glory Magic3 screen perforation.

As we all know, Apple brings a new series of digital phones in September every year. According to reliable information, although Apple postponed the release of the new iPhone last year due to the epidemic, this year's Apple's fall launch will be held in September as scheduled.
According to reports, this year's 13 series will be the same as last year, with four models of iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max. The iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max models are expected to include LTPO screen technology, which supports screen adjustment between 120Hz and 1Hz, significantly reducing the shortcomings of high brush life.
In the appearance of the overall and iPhone 12 difference is not much, while the rear camera module changes are more obvious. According to the news, the new iPhone, in addition to the thickness, the camera module area has also increased. But in the Android camp has long been on the billion pixel, God fight in 2021, iPhone 13 is still using the ancestral 12 megapixel. However, the iPhone 13 is expected to be equipped with displacement optical stabilization and LIDAR as standard across the system.
The processor, not surprisingly, should be equipped with the new A15 bionic chip. Probably will use TSMC's second generation 5nm technology, compared to the A14 will improve the performance of about 20%, while will be equipped with a 5-core GPU, is expected to have at least 35% performance upgrade. It will also use TSMC's N5P process, which further increases performance at the process level and further reduces power consumption. In addition, the processor will also integrate Qualcomm's new generation Snapdragon X60 baseband, 5G network signals will be enhanced.
As for the battery, according to reliable sources, the model numbers A2653, A2656 and A2660 have now passed China's 3C mandatory certification, with rated capacities of 4352mAh, 3095mAh and 2406mAh respectively. The battery models of iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro are the same 3095mAh.
But for Apple as a brand, many people may love and hate it. Apple's launch in recent years, has not come up with any bright products has also been criticized, the iPhone 12 released in 2020 is still following the design of the iPhone X released in 2017; Android camp charging power has been on a hundred watts, Apple is still supporting up to 18W fast charging; and that from the iPhone 6s began to polish the 12 The 12-megapixel CMOS chip has been polished since the iPhone 6s. The criticism of the iPhone's lack of innovation does not seem unreasonable, but it still does not prevent the iPhone from becoming one of the most popular phones in the world.
From what has been revealed so far, the iPhone 13 seems to be another product of Apple's "toothpaste squeeze". For ordinary iPhone 11 and iPhone 12 users, there is no need to upgrade, while for other people who want to buy an iPhone this year, the iPhone 12 may be a good choice at this time with a jump in price.
