With the launch of the 5G network, Android’s flagship machine is on the rise, but rumors suggest that Apple has no such plans. According to the latest news inmedia, the iPhone 12 series starts at a lower price than the iPhone 11 series, further lowering the threshold.
There is a general consensus that the iPhone 12 series will offer four models, with the internal code D52G, D53G, D53P and D54P, corresponding to the iPhone 12 (5.4 inches), the iPhone 12 Plus (6.1 inches), the iPhone 12 (6.1 inches), and the iPhone 12 Pro Max (6.7 inches).
The iPhone 12 is fully equipped with a 5G network, comes standard with a 5nm A14 Bionic processor and is much more energy efficient, while all four iPhone 12s will feature smaller “notch” and OLED screens. The main difference between the four models is the number of cameras and the medium frame material.
Of these, two iPhone 12s feature an aluminum midframe with a rear dual camera, while the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max use a stainless steel midframe, and the rear three-camera-3D radar sensor (primarily used to measure depth).
In terms of prices, the iPhone costs $649 ($4,582), the iPhone 12 6.1 inches starts at $749 (about $5,288), the iPhone 12 Pro starts at $999 ($7,053) and the iPhone 12 Max Pro starts at $1,099 (about $7,759).
By comparison, the iPhone 11 starts at $699, the iPhone 11 Pro starts at $999 and the iPhone 11 Pro Max starts at $1,099. The prices of the national bank version are 5499 yuan, 8699 yuan, 9599 yuan.
Based on this calculation, the iPhone 12 series is expected to start selling for around 5000 yuan.
It follows reports that Apple’s new iPhone is a month behind schedule this year, while apples have cut their iPhone capacity by as much as 20 per cent for the second half of the year.
But at the first two days of earnings meetings, Mr Cook said Apple’s new product development was still progressing in an orderly manner in the face of a global outbreak.
Apple’s second-quarter revenue from the iPhone was $28.962 billion, compared with $31.051 billion a year earlier and down 6.7 percent from a year earlier, the company said.
