As the mid-October iPhone 12 reveal is getting closer, we managed to form a pretty detailed picture of what we should expect from Apple’s next generation of flagship smartphones, including a hint about an iPhone 12 Mini model from a few days ago!
A second tipster suggests that the Mini name is coming to the iPhone lineup, with a picture of case stickers, published on Twitter by user DuanRui.
The picture depicts a mention of the smallest 5.4-inch case.
Here is the post containing the leak:

However, neither of the iPhone 12 Mini – related leaks come for renowned sources, so you should take the information with a pinch of salt.
Still, the rumor started gaining some momentum as the official launch date gets closer.
The main reason why the leak sounds plausible is that Apple already has a Mini variant of the iPad and Mac so that a new addition wouldn’t be too much of a surprise.
It might also help users easier distinguish between the four iPhone 12 models that will soon be introduced.
According to what we’ve seen so far, we expect to see two 6.1-inch models (iPhone 12 Max and iPhone 12 Pro) aside from the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 (Mini).
The fourth device would be the 6.7-inch iPhone Pro Max, the largest and most potent out of the quartet.
They are all expected to run on the same A14 Bionic chipset, though, so performance wouldn’t be that different across the lineup.
