Apple released two Pro models of the iPhone 12 in 2020. The iPhone 12 Pro is the smaller version but it has almost the same high-end features spotted on the Pro Max. Its pricing starts from $999 for 128GB storage and goes up to $1299 for 512GB storage.
As compared to the iPhone 12, the iPhone 12 Pro has the same physical dimensions, a 6.1-inch OLED Super Retina XDR display, Ceramic Shield technology, MagSafe technology, a flat-edge design, A14 Bionic processor, Dolby Vision video capturing, IP68 water resistant, and 5G connectivity.
However, there are some notable differences that make the iPhone 12 Pro more attractive. It features a surgical-grade stainless steel chassis instead of aluminum; The premium material makes the phone look much glossier and sleeker. The most important upgrade is the camera module. The Pro version features a triple-camera setup with additional telephoto lens and LiDAR scanner. The scanner makes autofocus much faster even in low-light conditions and enables Night Mode portrait shots. Although both feature OLED displays, the one on iPhone 12 Pro has a higher typical brightness at 800 nits version 625 nits on iPhone 12. The Pro also has more RAM (6GB vs 4GB), doubles the storage, and supports the new Apple ProRAW format.
The iPhone 12 Pro can come in one of the four model numbers – A2341, A2406, A2407, and A2408. They differ in country of origin, LTE and 5G bands, and dual SIM support. Each of the model number has a wide range of part numbers specifying markets, carriers, storage (128GB, 256GB, 512GB), and color options (graphite, silver, gold, pacific blue). You can find out all the differences in this table.

So if I buy A2341 model (unlocked and free-SIM) for using it in Europe, does it work?
Tuan Do says
Sure, it works perfectly.
Please can I use China model in West Africa
Depends your carrier bands is allocated compare with same bands for your iPhone model is used. Western African most likely are using Chinese base station : Hua Wei 5G cellular station because I think it is cheaper than other providers and supported some bands only Chinese used. Basically, both carrier and iPhone is used same N bands, it works! More no of N bands both are same is used made Carrier is ease to searching your iPhone connects successfully!
So, it looks like the USA version is the one to get if you had a choice? All the bands covered by the “global version” (A2407) are also covered by the “USA version” (A2341), plus A2341 has additional ones including CDMA, additional FDD-LTE bands, and additional 5G bands?
You have to be careful with the mmWave assumption. The A2341 will support mmWave in the US in the 28GHz frequency, but when mmWave rolls out in Europe it will sit in the 26 GHz frequency (band n258).
If I buy iPhone 12 Pro A2341 for use in Pakistan, will it be a good choice?
Generally for all networks and specifically for https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jazz_(company)
Arpan mudgal says
Is model no. A2341 or MGLR3LL/A is unlocked version ?
You forgot the CDMA for A2407.
Can I find simfree model A2407 in USA ?
No, as it is not sold by Apple or it’s carrier partners in that market.
If I buy the Hong Kong iPhone 12 Pro A2408 model, will it work well in PNG?
Where? PNG? North Korea? Bands uses is top secrets. 500M traffic and SIM cards only sales for tourist and cost US $200
How can someone find the Hong Kong version instead of the Chinese in order to have face time audio and wifi calling ??
All Mainland Chinese data traffic and apple services severs call are controls and even made a backup stored at Mainland China severs. Hong Kong and Macao Apple services severs are believes stored at Singapore and US. And all three China carrier is Chinese government running and controlled and software modify before their iPhone sales. Hong Kong version no to be modified.
Mo Ka says
Simple reply: all apple service severs are controls and stored at mainland China and all three China carrier are runs and controls under mainland government. All their sales iPhone were modified but Hong Kong and Macao all apple services severs sre not and not to be modified by carrier. People believes HK and Macao Apple server server are stored at Singapore and US.
If I buy A2408 to be used in France (Europe) – will Facetime Audio and Wifi calls also deactivated?
or is it linked with the carrier and the Country?
Will the US version work in Asia?
Timmy Mo says
Sure but some bands may not US used makes connects news call and send data are not better because few your US iPhone can be selected and be connected. Basically And fact: No Different!
Made sure your iPhone is not sim locked then it is always works most Asia carrier.
will model A2341 work in Moldova? I bought in California now bringing to friend there and want to insure it’ll work with Moldova networks
Hi Jim, yes, if it is the “unlocked” version, it works all over the world.
What about model
Hallo, i have a question regarding iphone 12 pro. If i buy the version A2408 which is for Hong-Kong (physical dual sim) will it work in Europe? And next question: is it unlocked? Thank you.
Works! All Hong Kong sales iPhone is sim fee and unlocked brought from dealer new one!
Hello, if i buy iPhone 12 Pro A2341 (unblocked) can i use it in Czech Republic? Thanks.
Thanks for this. Is there a drawback you can think of to buying an A2406 or A2408 for use solely in the UK?
There is a very small risk of long term network incompatibility. Every region variant has its own modem, the software of which governs the bands in the frequency spectrum that the device can connect to. Carriers will typically optimise their service for modem software using the bands they *expect* them to use, depending on the market the device is normally sold in (as outlined above).
The usual example is band 21 on the Japanese model which is used exclusively by some Japanese carriers. So, a British carrier like EE would not normally work to optimise the modem software in model A2406 (which it would not expect to be used in its market), whereas the Japanese carrier would – and vice versa. The risk therefore is that, as Apple updates the iOS operating system and carriers update modem software in response, they only do so on models they expect to *see* in their markets.
Hope that makes sense.
Il modello A2406 funziona in Italia oppure è penalizzato?
Hi, I recently bought a iPhone 12 Pro (Dual Sim) in Indonesia from a trustworthy local reseller. Since I’m a foreigner living here, I use two cellular plans. One local and one from back home. As the SIM card and phone from my country of origin broke down I’ve tried to install the eSIM from my provider back home. Only to come to the conclusion that eSIM doesn’t work for some reason. After some digging I ended up here, as the model that I’ve bought is the A2408. Is it correct that eSIM is not being supported on this particular model, the iPhone 12 Pro A2408 Dual Sim?
Physical dual SIM model doesn’t support eSIM. You have to use physical SIM cards only.
M. Rémi ODJO says
Quelle class de puissance peux supporter ces iPhones pro. Si une puissance d’un équipement est inferieur à la plage suite à la puissance nominale c’est PCL = 5 comprise entre 31 et 35, la valeur mesurée est 26,66 dBm. Cela signifie que l’équipement n’est pas conforme aux normes. Merci pour la réponse
