The iPhone 11 has been a tremendous success for Apple starting at $699, particularly when compared with some of its rivals like the Pixel 4 and the newly released Galaxy S20 series. Since its launch in September, the iPhone 11 has consistently sold better than any other phone and it’s the best new iPhone for many to purchase. Apple is expected to launch no less than four different iPhone 12 models this year, all featuring full-screen displays and 5 G connectivity. And the most affordable iPhone 12 could be even cheaper than base iPhone 11, according to a new survey.
Looking at Apple’s iPhone OLED screen supply chain in the midst of the coronavirus health crisis, an analyst told The Elec that Chinese display maker BOE’s cheap iPhone 12 may have an OLED screen. The business has long tried to win iPhone contracts and is expected to join Samsung and LG, both suppliers of iPhone OLED displays.
UBI Research analyst and industry insider Chung-Hoon Lee says the iPhone 12 will cost between $600 and $700 with a 5.4-inch screen, and that’s because BOE will deliver a better screen size.
The 6.1-inch iPhone 12 will be the iPhone 11’s direct counterpart but instead of the LCD, the device would have an OLED screen. The phone will cost as much as $750.
Apple will also be releasing two Pro versions this year, including an iPhone 12 Pro 6.1-inch and an iPhone 12 Pro Max 6.7-inch, which will presumably have the same pricing as their predecessors, beginning at $999 and $1,099. According to a recent leak the picture above shows the planned 12-line iPhone.
What’s unique about all these iPhones is they are going to support access to 5G. We’ve seen Samsung raise prices on all of its Galaxy S20 phones earlier this year because they support 5 G networks. The addition of 5 G components to the bill of materials of the iPhone 12 does not seem to compensate for such price figures.
Then again, these are pure predictions based on the rumored Apple iPhone 12 plans and the company’s previous pricing scheme for new iPhones against the backdrop of the huge coronavirus health crisis. Apple will have to fix numerous problems caused by this year’s COVID-19, including decreased demand for new phones, as well as numerous logistical issues that could affect the launch of new apps.
As with other reports about the iPhone, things could change fast depending on what happens next in the world. In mid-September, Apple is scheduled to release the iPhone 12 series and introduce the next iPhones in the coming months.
