Massive iPhone 12 leak reveals impressive pricing for 5G iPhones
Tipster Jon Prosser from Front Page Tech says Apple is preparing an updated pricing strategy for the iPhone 12 series that would involve increasing the price of only one model.
Do note that these details could still change because the devices are around five months away at this point, but the information comes from very reliable sources. More specifically, the ones that nailed the April 15 announcement date for the iPhone SE.
The iPhone 12 (Mini)
As many of you may know by now, Apple is planning to introduce an all-new budget iPhone model this year. The marketing name remains unconfirmed, but reports suggest it will feature a compact 5.4-inch OLED display.
The latter will offer a smaller notch, as visualized in the concept renders above, and slimmer bezels much like the ones featured on the current-gen iPhone 11 Pro. That should be combined with an aluminum body and a dual-camera setup on the back.
This iPhone will be available for $649 in the United States, according to Prosser.
The iPhone 12 (Plus/Max)
Replacing the iPhone 11 will be a 6.1-inch iPhone 12 variant that features an OLED screen with a smaller notch, an aluminum body, and a dual-camera setup. The A14 Bionic and 5G support are to be expected too.
This iPhone will be available for $749 in the United States, per the information available. That is slightly higher than the $699 price tag of the iPhone 11 and means Apple is reverting to the iPhone XR pricing model.
The iPhone 12 Pro
Sitting at the premium end of the spectrum is going to be the iPhone 12 Pro. The flagship will replace the 5.8-inch OLED display of its predecessor with a large 6.1-inch implementation that boasts a smaller notch and even thinner bezels.
Adorning the rear panel looks set to be an upgraded camera system that houses an improved triple-camera setup and a new LiDAR Scanner similar to the one featured on the 2020 iPad Pro. Exact specifications are yet to be confirmed.
This iPhone will be available for $999 in the United States just like its predecessor, despite all of the upgrades.
The iPhone 12 Pro Max
As indicated by its name, this model will be a larger version of the iPhone 12 Pro. It carries a massive 6.7-inch OLED display and presumably a bigger battery but, other than that, is identical to the standard Pro version.
This iPhone will be available for $1,099 in the United States. That matches the pricing of the iPhone 11 Pro Max.
