The iPhone 12 Pro Max is Apple’s largest iPhone ever with a 6.7-inch screen that boasts a camera system that our reviewer called “one of the most confident smartphone cameras.” In its latest demolition, iFixit shows how big this impressive camera actually is compared to other iPhones.
The primary wide-angle sensor “dwarfs the iPhone 12 sensor”, says iFixit and comes about 47 percent larger. But it has the same 12 MP resolution as the smaller model. 12 Pro Max’s sensor-shift image stabilization system – found on most DSLR cameras – adds bulk to the large main camera, iFixit found.
The 12 Pro Max’s L-shaped battery is the largest of all current iPhone models, weighing 14.13Wh, compared to 8.57Wh in the mini and 10.78W in the 12 and 12 Pro. But iFixit notes that it’s actually a little smaller than the 15.04Wh pack found in the iPhone 11 Pro Max.
The iPhone 12 Pro Max – the most expensive iPhone on the market right now from $ 1,099 – “is without a doubt Apple’s finest iPhone-related performance this year,” says iFixit. The device adds “demanding 5G technology without obvious compromises with other components.” Check out iFixit’s full breakdown of the iPhone 12 Pro Max here.
