iPhone 12 – RELEASE DATE!
Whats up guys nick here, and I’m back withanother video. So There’s now enough leaked material on theiPhone 12 to script a Hollywood movie. It’s been a lot of fun trying to predict whenApple will announce the iPhone 12 and when the handsets will actually go on sale.
Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who isn’t oftenwrong, says that the cheaper 5.4-inch iPhone 12 and 6.1-inchiPhone 12 Max models are being produced simultaneously and will arrive first. That leaves the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro andthe 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max the more expensive models to launch alittle later, though Kuo doesn’t specify how much later. From a marketing perspective,separating out the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 makes more sense,as opposed to launching a non-Pro and one Pro model first.
In terms of pricing,the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 should prove to be the most popular model,as it could start as low as $649. In the same report, Kuo says there are somequality issues with the production of the camera lenses destined for the non-Pro iPhone12 models. Apple has encountered issues with a iPhone12 camera supplier, whose coatings cracked under high temperatures.
However, as Apple uses multiple suppliersfor the parts, it shouldn’t affect the launch schedule. There’s usually a delay of a week or so betweenthe two, but this year that delay is probably going to be bigger. Apple already confirmed on its recent earningscall that the iPhone 12 will be “a few weeks later” than usual.
All four handsets are expected to featureApple’s new A14 Bionic chip, 5G connectivity anda sleeker design with flatter sides. But the iPhone 12 Pro models should includea telephoto camera plus a LiDAR sensor for better photography and AR performance.
There have been several leaks pointing toa 120Hz screen for the iPhone 12 Pro devices, but that now seems in doubt based on a leakfrom display analyst Ross Young. he has a particular insight into smartphonesscreen supply chains, he claimed that none of the upcoming iPhone 12 models willhave a 120Hz refresh-rate display. and this is not good. So that’s it for this video guys, I”ll catchyou in the next one peace out!
