Between the four iPhone 12 models expected this year, the version with a 6.1-inch screen will be the first to go into production this summer.
The iPhone series will be more extensive this year with no less than four iPhone 12 models offered. The official presentation is still expected in September and it remains to be seen whether it will be necessary to postpone the marketings after the delays accumulated in the development of the series due to the coronavirus crisis.
iPhone 12 6.1-inch model has already a date to start production
According to the latest rumors, the two 6.1-inch iPhone 12s will be the first to go into production in July, the others following a later schedule.
The 6.1-inch opening-range iPhone version will use a panel supplied by LG Display and BOE with a separate touch controller from a third-party supplier, while the others will operate screens produced by Samsung with Y-OCTA touch solution Integrated.
This greater complexity in the manufacture of the 6.1-inch iPhone could explain the delay in launching the production of the different versions. This unless LG Display needs more time to reach the volumes and the quality imposed by Apple.
IPHONE 12 EXPECTED TO BE LAUNCHED IN LATE NOVEMBER
According to media reports, as is customary in the past, Apple releases a new flagship smartphone in September each year. However, there are speculations that this year’s iPhone 12 may be launched in November. According to a report from the Wall Street investment bank, Apple’s hardware shipments in the second quarter of 2020 were 35 million units. This is down 13% from the same period last year. Apple’s four new iPhones this year will support the 5G network as well as narrower OLED screens with a notch.
Apple is expected to release four iPhones this year: a 5.4-inch iPhone, a 6.7-inch iPhone, and two 6.1-inch iPhones. According to reports, all four iPhone 12 will come with an A14 processor. In addition to the screen size difference, the memory capacity also differs. The 5.4 and 6.1-inch standard models has 4GB RAM and a 256GB maximum storage. However, the 6.1 and 6.7-inch pro models come with 6GB of RAM and the maximum storage will be 512GB.
According to previous reports, Apple may adjust the iPhone 12 series standard model storage. It will increase from the previous iPhone 11 series 64GB to 128GB. However, the starting price of the iPhone 12 series will be cheaper than its predecessor. We all expect a $649 starting price. Nevertheless, the most expensive device in this new series could sell for up to $1399.
