Does the iPhone 12 support 5G?

Recent leaks suggest that all four iPhone 12 models will support 5G, but the two base models will not include mmWave 5G connectivity. This will allow Apple to claim all 4 models support 5G while bumping the price of the two Pro models up by at least $50. The problem with the Pro models is that while mmWave 5G is the fastest version (hitting up to 2Gb/s - 2,000Mb/s) it has horrible range leaving most devices to rely on standard ‘mid-band’ 5G.

5G mmWave is also horrible indoors, and can be dampered by something as simple as rain.
