As a reminder, this article is only "talking about the size" of the iPhone 12 series. You can read a number of meaningful reviews on Engadget's Japanese edition, including the differences in features between each model.
The iPhone 12 and 12 Pro (6.1-inch) are already available, but the iPhone 12 Pro Max, the largest body announced at the same time, and the iPhone 12 mini, the smallest Face ID-equipped model, will be available on November 13 (Pre-orders already started on November 6). Now that we have all the actual devices in hand, we're going to examine the size of the entire iPhone 12 series again.

The iPhone 12 Pro Max has more presence than I expected
The iPhone 12 Pro Max, as the name suggests, is a larger version of the iPhone 12 Pro, but the camera shooting capabilities are even more powerful. It has a 6.7-inch screen size and weighs 226.5 grams as measured (the official value is 226 grams), so it weighs about 40 grams more than the iPhone 12 Pro.

Light as a leaf, the iPhone 12 mini
My first impressions of the Phone 12 mini are undeniably influenced by the fact that it is just after holding the Max in my hands, but it's just "small, and light!"
Be sure to watch the video review of the actual iPhone 12 mini, which is truly like having just a screen in the palm of your hand.
Now, which size do you choose?
The iPhone 12 series will have four options (plus their respective color variants): the unmarked 6.1-inch or 5.4-inch mini, and the 6.1-inch Pro or 6.7-inch Pro Max.
Geek people will choose the Peo Max because I think they will choose the top of the line all-inclusive, size aside. Also, I think the large screen Pro Max is the best choice for people of the generation who have difficulty seeing up close.
Everyone has their own size requirements, whether they want to use it with one hand or carry it around in a pocket or small pochette. Particularly in Japan, where small iPhones are so popular, we feel that the iPhone 12 mini will be a big hit.
If you're still struggling, you can aim for the middle of the line, but how about buying both the iPhone 12 Pro Max and the iPhone 12 mini for different uses? Look at all the models and there are really a lot of people who say that.
