Apple will unveil its first-ever 5G smartphone series in a few weeks. Apple’s first 5G smartphone series is coming almost 18 months after the commercialization of 5G. Presently, there are tons of 5G phones in the market already. The likes of Samsung, Huawei, Xiaomi, and others already have multiple 5G smartphones. However, Apple has its market and you can be sure that Apple fanboys are patiently waiting for the 5G iPhones. According to previous speculations, the Apple iPhone 12 series will include at least four models.
A recent leak on Twitter from @laobaiTD reveals the back cover glass of the new iPhone 12 Pro. The case shows that this device will use a triple camera setup as well as a LiDAR layout. The image also reveals a fifth hole on the rear of this smartphone which is probably for the flash.

It is important to note that there may be another iPhone 12 Pro Max. Although new iPhones usually start shipping at the end of September, Apple recently stated that this year’s iPhone will be available “in a few weeks”. It is estimated that the output of the iPhone 12 series will reach 80 million units this year. Of course, the new series will use the 5nm Bionic A14 chips.
SPECULATIONS ON THE IPHONE 12 SERIES AND OTHER APPLE DEVICES
Rumors say that Apple will release four iPhone 12s this year. This includes the “budget” 5.4-inch iPhone 12, 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Plus, 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro, and 6.8-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max. There are also reports that all four models will use OLED displays and support 5G. These will be the first set of 5G smartphones from Apple. The low-end models will use dual rear cameras and 4GB RAM, while the Pro models should come with a triple rear camera setup. The Pro models will also come with 6GB of RAM and a 120Hz ProMotion display.
There are also reports that the iPhone 12 series will have a 4G version. According to the report, this smartphone has a 5.4-inch and a 6.1-inch LCD model. They both support the 4G LTE network, A14 Bionic chip, built-in 4GB RAM, and a dual 12MP camera. In terms of price, while the 5.4 inches cost $549, the 6.1 inches will sell for $649. The $549 starting price seems to be a good deal considering that last year’s iPhone 11 has a $699 starting price. This means that the iPhone 12 4G is about $150 cheaper than its predecessor.
