According to TimesNowNews report, this year Apple is going to launch its iPhone 12 series after October which will be supported for 5G. This is an increase in the price of iPhones, but they might be also launching a cheaper version of the iPhone 12 that will get 4G connectivity, just to compensate for the price.
Wedbush Securities’s research note obtained by Business Insider says the American tech giant may launch a cheaper iPhone 12 in 2021.
In the start, the company had predicted that this year there could a mix launch of 4G and 5G iPhone 12 models by Apple, but anyhow analysts Ahmad Khalil, Strecker Backe, and Daniel Ives have revised the predictions, suggesting that Apple will probably launch only a 4G-only model of iPhone 12 in early 2021.
Around February 2021, the firm may launch this cheaper variant with a price tag of approximately $800, says Analyst Daniel Ives. “Price points will be aggressive as Apple goes after their broader customer base. Especially in a recession, in a COVID-19 backdrop, they need to make sure they’re hitting all price categories,” added Ives.
This year, Apple will be coming with 4, 5, 6.1, and 6.7-inch sizes with high-refresh-rate. The 5.4-inch could come with a cheaper price whereas the 6.7-inch and 6.1-inch iPhones will feature higher specs. All four devices will most likely get iOS 14 out of the box. This year, Apple’s iPhone 12 series is expected to support China’s navigation system.
