Rumours and speculations around the upcoming iPhone 12 are getting more and more rampant. We’ve had rumours around specifications, model types and now, there’s a notable leak around the pricing of the upcoming iPhone 12 models. The leak comes via tipster Jon Prosser who had also leaked the April 15 date for the iPhone SE launch. According to Prosser, there will be four 5G models of the iPhone 12 and they are going to be priced rather aggressively.
The first of these is said to be the Apple iPhone 12(₹ 67999 at amazon), a budget iPhone with an OLED panel. The smartphone will sport a dual-camera setup on the back, while also sporting the company’s newest SoC. While the name still remains unconfirmed, this device with its 5.4-inch display will be the most budget-friendly device, with a price tag starting at $649.
The next model up in the ladder would be the Apple iPhone 12 Plus/Max, a device whose name is not yet confirmed. This device will sport a 6.1-inch OLED panel with a smaller notch in comparison to the iPhone 11 Pro. The phone is expected to come with dual cameras on the back, sport the A14 Bionic SoC along with 5G capabilities. This particular, larger iPhone will start at a retail price of $749.
The two other models in the 5G lineup are the iPhone 12 Pro and the iPhone 12 Pro Max, both of which are rumoured to sport a triple camera setup along with a LiDAR sensor like the one found on the recently launched iPad Pro. The iPhone 12 Pro is expected to sport a 6.1-inch OLED panel while the iPhone 12 Pro Max will retain the 6.7-inch OLED display. Both the phones are expected to have displays capable of 120Hz refresh rate as well. The iPhone 12 Pro is expected to have the price tag of $999 while the larger smartphone is said to be priced at $1099.
If the above pricing does end up holding true, this would be the first time Apple would sell an OLED-equipped iPhone for under $999. This would also be the first time Apple would create a second version of the non-Pro based iPhone. Currently, the iPhone 11 series consists of the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and the iPhone 11 Pro Max. The iPhone 12 series, according to Prosser, seems to also add an iPhone 12 Max/Plus, a first.
Apple is expected to host its iPhone event in September like always, but the event may be moved by a few days or weeks due to the current COVID-19 situation. Additionally, given that we’re still many months away from the actual launch, a lot can change between now and then. A few weeks ago, Ming-Chi Kuo had noted that there would be a delay in the launch of the 5G variant of the iPhone 12 due to delays in the testing of the 5G modem.
