Apple is all set to release the world's first-ever 'mini' iPhone. A new leak suggests that Apple's 2020 smartphone lineup will consist of the iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max. All four phones are expected to be unveiled in the coming weeks.
Anil Satyanarayana,

Despite the iPhone 12 series' somewhat delayed release, we know that there will be four variants this time around. Several reports told us that the devices would be called the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Max, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max. A new leak paints a different picture, though.

Twitter leaker L0vetodream suggests that this year's iPhone lineup will consist of the following devices: iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max. Apple is no stranger to adding 'mini' to its product name, so the prediction is very likely correct. As foretold by another leak, the iPhone 12 Mini will come with a 5.4-inch screen, making it ideal for small form factor aficionados.

Depending on who you ask, Apple is expected to release the new iPhones as early next week. However, early October seems like a more realistic release window. If last year's prices are anything to go by, we can expect the iPhone 12 Mini to retail at US$500. An iPhone for that price will undoubtedly disrupt the mid-range market, and it'll be interesting to see what Apple's competitors come up with to address the iPhone 12 Mini.
