If rumours are right, the iPhone 12 lineup is going to be very expansive and exciting. The next-generation iPhone is rumoured to have a brand new design, thinner bezels and 5G support. However, a new report suggests that a cheaper iPhone 12 will arrive in early 2021 without 5G support. This 4G-only model of the iPhone 12 is expected to cost around $800 (Rs 60,000 approx. directly converted) and seems to be in line with Apple appealing to a larger demographic with affordable phones like the iPhone SE in addition to the two tiers of iPhones - the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro.

Apple had already confirmed that iPhone 12 production is falling behind when Apple CFO, Luca Maestri, spoke during the company’s quarterly earnings call. In it, he said, “As you know, last year we started selling iPhones in late September. This year, we project supply to be available a few weeks later.” We also expect the Cupertino based tech giant to release the iPhone 12 in a staggered launch. Both the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 and 12 Pro devices are reported to launch in the first wave, in October, and the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 and 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro will release later, possibly in November. This timeline fits perfectly with the cheaper 4G-Only iPhone 12 releasing in early 2021.

In other iPhone news, the high spec iPhone 12 Pro devices will most probably not have a high refresh rate display as expected. This comes after engineers reportedly had concerns for the battery life. We can expect iPhone 2021 to feature ‘Pro Motion’ displays with LTPO panels as we saw in the Apple Watch. The cheaper iPhone 12 is also leaked to feature an OLED display instead of an LCD panel as seen in previous years. 

The iPhone 12 lineup will have many new changes. Click here to read up on everything that we know, so far.
