iPhone 12 and 12 mini Overview:

According to unofficial sources, the majority of iPhones in Nepal come through the grey market. However, such iPhones imported via unofficial sources after Shrawan 1 will be blacklisted by NTA—thereby making them incompatible with the network of Nepal’s telecom operators. Thus, to encourage the customers to buy iPhones from official stores, Genxt seems to have announced the price drop.

Anyway, iPhone 12 flaunts a 6.1-inch display while the mini variant settles for a 5.4-inch screen. The flat OLED panel expands from edge-to-edge and has corners that follow a curved design. Both panels feature a Super Retina XDR screen and are covered by a Ceramic Shield cover for added durability.

In terms of battery capacity, the iPhone 12 mini gets its juice from a 2,227mAh cell while the iPhone 12 has a larger 2,815mAh battery.
