|Dimension||160.8 x 78.1 x 7.4 mm|
All iPhone 12 Pro Max models have a haptic-touch capable 6.7" (diagonal) "Super Retina XDR" display (2778x1284, 458 PPI, 800 nits max brightness) that occupies nearly the entire front of the device. It has four cameras. On the front -- tucked in the "notch" -- is a "TrueDepth" camera that in addition to supporting "Advanced Face ID" identification functionality, takes 12-megapixel photos, shoots 4K video, and has software support for Portrait mode, Portrait Lighting, and more. The rear packs a 4K video-capable "pro-12-megapixel camera system" with three cameras -- Ultra Wide (f/2.4 aperture, 120-degree field of view), Wide (f/1.6 aperture, sensor-shift optical image stabilization), and Telephoto (f/2.2 aperture). Apple notes that the iPhone 12 Pro Max provides "computational photography" features that improve low-light performance and reduce noise compared to earlier iPhone models.
The iPhone 12 Pro Max uses a partially "surgical grade" stainless steel case with flat polished stainless steel sides and has a glass front and back. The front has a "Ceramic Shield" cover for improved durability and the back has an integrated "MagSafe" magnetic charging connection. It is splash, water, and dust-resistant to the IP68 standard (maximum depth of 6 meters up to 30 minutes). It is offered in four color options -- a medium-toned "Graphite", silver, gold, and "Pacific" blue.
Internally, the iPhone 12 Pro Max is powered by a 64-bit 3.0 GHz "Apple A14 Bionic" processor with six cores -- two performance cores and four high-efficiency cores -- and a 16-core Neural Engine. It has 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB, 256 GB, or 512 GB of flash storage. It also supports 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6 with 2x2 MIMO, 5G wireless, Bluetooth 5.0, Ultra-Wideband "for spatial awareness," NFC for Apple Pay, "Express Cards with power reserve" for compatible transit systems, a LiDAR scanner, and dual SIMs (one hardware nano-SIM and one software-based eSIM).
