Apple iPhone 12

Apple is expected to launch its next iteration of smartphones dubbed iPhone 12 lineup later this year. Considering previous trends, we should see the unveiling happening somewhere in the month of September. It looks like the Cupertino-based company is also planning to launch a cheaper LTE version of the device.

Apple iPhone 12 LTE variant leaked! Here’s the pricing

A leakster on Twitter who goes by the user name @omegaleaks recently mentioned LTE version along with the pricing. Considering the tweet, the iPhone 12 LTE version should arrive with a $549 price tag. The iPhone 12 Max LTE variant, on the other hand, should set the consumer back $649. If that’s the case, then Apple will be covering five different price brackets.

The new leak falls in line with the previous report from @jon_prossur that revealed the expected pricing of the iPhone 12 lineup. As per that report, iPhone 12 devices will be available in four different prices – $649, $749, $999, and $1099. Considering both the two reports, it looks iPhone 12 will have three different size options while total variants are going to be five.

As mentioned earlier, Apple will launch its new 2020 iPhone 12 series in Septemeber while the mass-production will kickstart in July. With the new LTE variant, Apple is looking to target the sub-$549 segments. This makes sense considering most of the consumer out there are unwilling to spend a premium on devices. This new variant will help the company focus on that particular set of user.

It is also worth noting that Samsung followed a similar approach with its Lite flagship devices earlier this year. Considering the recent report, the chaebol is planning to do the same again for its S20 lineup.
