I worry for some of those commenting here. Who cares who did what first? How many Sharp TVs get sold? Less than most other brands, certainly in my country. And this nonsense about trends, as if the subsequent adopters cannot set the trend. Trends can be set by manufacturers that introduce a previously used idea or design. During my younger years, Joe Blogs were the "trendy" jeans, briefly. In 1990 they set the trend. They were not the first jeans. They were all but identical to many brands that had gone before. Apple can use a feature or design after another company, and still be the one setting the trend. Apple are big enough to start a trend. I'm hoping they start a trend for smaller devices... Guess what, we had smaller devices before!
Looks like the iPhone 12 will steal the spotlight again. 3 Years in the row.
This will be apple year for sure android se will kill midrange market. 12 lineup will kill every android bricks that hit 1000 euro including ultra brick s20 ultra 1500 euro with gimmicky numbers and throttling machine chipset.
Now that I think about it, $650 is even undercutting the oneplus 8 by $50. LOL!
Anonymous, 30 Apr 2020Give credits to the right one who used first quad camera in square shape. That was Huawei Mate... moreTrendsetter, that all about.. Yep
And about Huawei, yes there was first camara in that shape, but on differente (middle) place of the phone..
Anyway, Huawei, Honor, now looks like those Nokia/Microsoft Lumias, back in the day, good or above averge cameras, but no apps and games (at least if you compare with Play Store), so, Huawei, no thanks. If i want a Chinese OEM, i will chose Xiaomi, or Realme, or.. Motorola, but, thats a just my opinion.
Anonymous, 30 Apr 2020i just wish $650 translated to 650 EUR, lol. unfortunately it's gonna be more like 800 EURWow! What was the price of iPhone 11 in euros again?

One thing we know now for sure, notch will be there (again), it seems little smaller than those nipple notches on actual iPhones, but its there. Maybe will be better option for them, to put pop up front camera, and add underscreen finger print sensor. How hard is for Apple to do that? Now they can copy, Xiaomi (Mi10T/Pro for pop up, and underscreen fps), because this iPhone 12 will have OLED, so, there is no reason to have sensor (and ols faceID)..
And we also see, by interest in iPhone SE 2020, Apple and non Apple users, still, like fingerprint sensors, underscreen sensor or no, but its a still even in 2020 good thing.

Good prices and a slam in the face to Android brands who rose up to 200 euro in price for 5G capabilities. Great prices but I doubt until it's official.

Anonymous, 30 Apr 2020So the only way to be different is to use a Nokia 9 pureview design, for example. lol..or HMD Global (known as Nokia:), yes, back camera design is really unique, but im not a fan of launcher3 - launcher, or skin, not only in Nokias, same goes for all androidONE devices, but, back camera,p in 9 Pureview, design wise, you're 100% right, it's a good.
$650 for iPhone 12 5G is a great deal in my opinion. Not the absolute best bang-for-your-buck, but pretty good. I'm also glad that iPhones are keeping their same price as before, while androids just keep on increasing their prices.
I never had any iPhone (because of iOS, no 3.5 jack, some limitation and unreasonably expensive accessories) but I must admit that Apple feels market much better than Android manufacturers. Whiles Android phones go crazy expensive and huge in size, Apple starts to make compact and more affordable phones. So looks like small 5.4 inch iPhone 12 will become my first iPhone....

I think everyone knows that apple performance are amazing. I do like small/compact smartphones, anything taller than 160mm and 74 mm+ are too big. Once again, i was just referring about design, which all of us can say that is way outdated. If they launch the Apple 12 design like the previous 3 years phone it is a shame.
I’m not surprised at all, back in the years I think apple devices were overpriced but lately it’s bang for your buck, I wish I could say the same for others
Anonymous, 30 Apr 2020Photo quality is relative
With 50W charging, wireless charging is useless
Take care for your... morejust as fast? Only A13 is as fast as snapdragon 865. And if you are going off antutu, don't, because it is rubbish. A14 should be far superior to 865 and even 865+(of course, 875 will match it.)
If realme is good at updating, iPhone is even better. At most, realme has 3 years of software updates, while apple has 5.
Realme x50 pro also has worse refresh rate: 90hz vs. 120hz(unless you are talking about iPhone 11 series)
Photo quality is "relative"? No, iPhone is far superior. It actually has good image processing compared to realme, which is nothing special. Read the verge reviews about camera: the reviewer said that the iPhone 11 pro is the "best camera ON A SMARTPHONE!!!!". And, iPhone 11 scores second! And video quality isn't even a competition.
Only objective advantage of realme is fast charging, but iPhone counteracts that with better battery.

Take care for your device and don't drop in water
Realme speakers are excellent. Read reviews.
865 is just as fast as A14 and even that, is not noticeable because you won't take advantage of it in its lifetime.
Realme is good at updating
And again, check its prices.
Anonymous, 30 Apr 2020And OnePlus, realme, Sony :)No, no, OnePlis back camera it looks like camera from Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro (midrange phone from last year), Sony Xperia, even this one with Zeiss, looks like back camera from iPhone 10 (X), just with one camera hole, more hehe.. But, that't a just my opinion :D
Oh, one more OEM have unique design of back camera (maybe is not pretty, bit is differente), and thats a Motorola (powered by Lenovo lol).
