As the launch of the iPhone 12 series draws nearer, analysts are wary about the price of this device. There have been a series of reports on the price of the iPhone 12 series. However, what is the major factors that will increase the price of this series? For starters, Apple fans do not care, whatever the price tag is, there will still be a long queue on Apple Stores. We all know that all the iPhone 12 series will support 5G. This will be one of the major features to increase the price. Furthermore, the transition from LCD to OLED will also be another feature to increase the cost.
Looking at the starting price of the iPhone 11, the iPhone 12 may be at least $50 more expensive. The iPhone 11 hit the shelves with a $699 starting price. The retail price of the iPhone 11 Pro is $999, and the 11 Pro’s biggest show-off starts at $1099.
There are reports that the iPhone 12 Mini (5.4 inches) will start at $699. However, with 5G support, Bionic A14 chipset, dual rear camera and a smaller notch, this price seems unlikely. There are also speculations that the cheapest iPhone 12 will cost $749.
5G support & OLED display will increase the iPhone 12 series price
While the iPhone 11 cost $699 in the U.S., the seling price of this device in parts of Europe hit 800 euros. You can now imagine that a starting price of $749 will cost almost 900 euros in Europe for the cheapest iPhone 12. Fortunately, there is still the possibility that 4G models will enter the market at a lower price.
The most similar model to the iPhone 11 is the iPhone 12 Max, as both have a 6.1-inch screen. In this case, people speculate that the starting price is $799, which is $100 higher than the cheaper iPhone in 2019. In Spain, the price of this model may be 949 euros.
Of course, in the absence of a two-month Apple mobile phone conference, we cannot confirm these prices, so we are in the speculative field. However, the iPhone 12 price increase will not surprise anyone.
Apple will sell the 2020 iPhone series without the possibility of including a charger or headset in the box. The company beliveses that it will be able to reduce cost this way. Furthermore, Apple believes that most of its iPhone 12 buyers already have the iPhone 11 or an older iPhone. Thus, the accessories should not be a problem. Nevertheless, if these removals does not affect the final price, it will be bad business for users.
