Apple will launch four new OLED iPhones in the coming months, 5.4, 6.1 and 6.7 inches, respectively. Rumor has it that the 6.7-inch iPhone and a 6.1-inch model will be high-end devices with three-lens cameras, while the 5.4-inch device and another 6.1-inch model will be the more affordable low-end iPhone with dual-lens cameras.
Apple is rumoured to be staggering this year’s iPhone release due to delays in development and production, but we still see conflicting rumours about the order in which they will be released.
DigiTimes has previously said that two 6.1-inch iPhone 12s are likely to be first launched in October, followed by the 6.7- and 5.4-inch models, a claim reiterated by the Taiwanese industry publication in a new report released today, based on the time of shipment of the device’s substrate-type printed circuit board.
Sources said the new iPhone series could come in two phases, the first with two 6.1-inch models and the second with 6.7- and 5.4-inch devices, noting that shipments of the 6.1-inch model’s SLP motherboard began in July and 6.7 and 5.4 inches in the second half of August.
Bloomberg also reported that Apple will stagger the launch of the iPhone in 2020. However, it expects Apple to first launch more affordable 5.4- and 6.1-inch devices, while the more expensive 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch Pro devices will follow.
Meanwhile, leaker Jon Prosser says the iPhone 12 will be available at an event in the week of October 12, and the lower-cost iPhone 12 is expected to start accepting bookings shortly after the event ends. Mr Prosser said the iPhone 12 Pro would not be available until November.
Regardless of the order in which Apple releases its iPhone 12 product line, the official launch of these devices may be in sight.
