The global smartphone market has been turned upside down by the coronavirus pandemic. But according to the latest reports, the new generation of Apple iPhones should still be launched on the market in a few months, especially in September. In the meantime, the next apple brand flagships are already at the heart of leaks and rumors. Recently, analyst Daniel Ives gave his opinion on the prices of the iPhone 12.
The latter indicates in his report that the firm could produce an iPhone 12 4G. The latter would be marketed at a more affordable price, and would therefore be accessible to a wider audience.
Apple would opt for a new pricing policy
Analysts believe Apple will produce not four, but five different iPhone models this year. According to analyst Daniel Ives, the cheapest model would only be compatible with the 4G network. The latter would be offered at a more affordable price than other models. It may even be that it costs less than the iPhone 11 with 64 GB of internal storage, which is currently available at around $ 770.
This year, the iPhone would be offered with at least 128 GB of internal storage. And with the rising costs of processors and other smartphone upgrades, the Cupertino Company would have decided to no longer deliver the products with headphones so that their prices are not too high.
Five iPhone models for this year
Leaker Jon Prosser, who is generally well informed about the firm’s apple products, claimed to know the prices of the iPhone 12 in late April. According to him:
- The 5.4-inch iPhone 12 5G would cost $ 649
- The 6.1-inch iPhone 12 5G would cost $ 749
- 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro 5G would cost $ 999
- The 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max 5G would cost $ 1,399
For its part, the iPhone 12 4G with 128 GB of internal storage would be offered at only 549 dollars. If this is the case, its competitors have to worry. The information is however to be taken with a good dose of tweezers, and it will be necessary to wait for an official announcement to be fixed.
