People who love tiny phones are in for a big surprise as Apple revealed the latest 5.4 inch iPhone.

Popular YouTuber Filip Koroy also known as Everything ApplePro revealed that this model is smaller than a new SE. He also stated that the 5.4 inch iPhone will be the smallest iPhone the company has sold in years.

Most iphones users may have preferred smaller phones after smartphones got bigger since most iphones are big in size.

Apple achieved this model by using a bezel-less design. This means the borders between the screen and the phone's frame are narrow. By narrowing the borders around the screen, manufacturers can devote more of the phone's front to its display, allowing them to offer a bigger screen in a smaller phone.

The YouTuber also explained that the large notch on the device in the video is unlikely to be the final model. That’s because the mold comes from schematics given to case makers.While case makers need extremely accurate dimensions, they don’t need the information about the notch or number of cameras so Apple is still using the previous design.

The 5.4-inch iPhone 12 is also narrower than the 4.7-inch iPhone SE. This is because Apple’s bezel-less design uses a display with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio which is longer and narrower than the 16:9 ratio used in both iPhone SE models.

The big omissions are the 120Hz ProMotion Display and new LiDAR sensor heading to iPhone 12 Pro models, while the optical zoom lens will again remain a Pro-exclusive in 2020.

That said, the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 will have 5G, step up to an OLED display and use the same primary cameras and ballistic new A14 chipset as the Pros.
