The iPhone 12 mini doesn't become available for preorder until Nov. 6, and won't actually ship to customers until Nov. 13. Despite that, a Romanian YouTube channel got their hands on the device.





The clip is entirely in Romanian, and there aren't any subtitles or captions available. However, the YouTuber, George Buhnici, does offer a side-by-side comparison of the device to the iPhone 12. It isn't clear how the channel was able to obtain the unreleased device.

Although it packs a smaller 5.4-inch display and a smaller battery, the iPhone 12 mini is otherwise identical in terms of features and specifications to the larger iPhone 12. That includes support for 5G, an Apple A14 Bionic processor, and the same dual-camera setup.

The iPhone 12 mini, along with the larger iPhone 12 Pro Max, will go up for preorder at 5 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 6.

    "Mini" but it's not much smaller than the SE.

    What a joke.

    The YouTube embed in this article is incorrect and shows the iPhone 12 vs 11. The iPhone 12 mini video can be found at: https://youtu.be/90JIZCYa6Q4
    Edit: The 12 mini video is now showing as private. Guess we'll have to wait a couple more weeks after all.

    Glad someone got a shorter version of the correct video. Pity it doesn’t look at the face though and working with the keyboard.

    How is it a joke? It's proportionally smaller to the 12 as the Max is larger. I'd have gone that route if they had a Pro in that size, it looks perfect. This is literally what people have been clamoring for the past three years.

    On the right that's a 12, not a 12 mini.


    His 12 mini is white, here it is:

    It’s an “iPhone 12 mini” meaning smaller than the regular iPhone 12. Just “iPhone 12 Pro Max” is larger than the regular iPhone 12 Pro. Is it really that difficult to understand - a little context goes a long way.
