iPhone 12 mini is going to be the smallest one of the lot, it is getting a 5.4-inch screen with an OLED display Technology similar to the pro models. Which means there are no Liquid Retina Display screens this year. Apple is completely moving into OLED for the iPhone 12 series. 

Similar to last year the budget-friendly iPhone 12’s are going to be made of aluminium and glass. But this year there is a radical change in the design for all the iPhones, it is going to be a glass and Aluminium sandwich in the shape of the iPad Pro and the latest iPad Air.
