Every September, The iPhone’s latest generation comes to us as promised. This year, What are we expecting from the iPhone 12 series?
The iPhone should officially launch after two months, but under the “help” of many tech media and enthusiastic netizens, the iphone 12 series has been known clearly, from hardware configurations, appearance design to packing boxes, we’ve got everything we want to know, except the price.
All four models have the same appearance
There are four models of the iPhone 12 series, the small 5.4-inch iPhone 12, the standard 6.1-inch iPhone 12, the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro, and the 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max.
As you can see below, the smallest iPhone 12 of 5.4-inch will be smaller than the iPhone SE 2, which was released earlier this year.
The 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch Pro models will no longer exist and will be replaced by the larger 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch models, which will accommodate the different needs of the smaller or larger screens.
The iPhone 12 series, which has been rumored that it will change its shape since last year, will no longer have the rounded corners and 2.5-D glass combination of the iPhone 6, but will be transformed into the square-shaped design of the iPhone 4 and iPad Pro 2018. The design language of the iPad and iPhone will be unified once again.
Except the change of borders, the new iPhone would add new color, Navy Blue, as a unique color, will be used on the iPhone 12 Pro for the first time. EverythingApplePro do a rendering, and called Navy Blue has a unique charm, so I believe it will bring the new iPhone a special feeling.
5G is added to enhance the hardware configuration
This year, Except the Android flagship comes with the 5G baseband, the new mid and low-end phones are available too. therefore, it is also essential for the iPhone 12 after it formed partnership with Qualcomm.
Guo Ming, an analyst, said the iPhone will use Qualcomm X55 baseband, while Digi Times, a Taiwan media, said the new iPhone will use the X60 baseband. The reason is that TSMC factory starts to produce A14 chip and X60 baseband in June, to prepare for the 2020 new iPhone.
Analysts at Barclays and UBS both agree that the iPhone 12 Pro series will carry 6GB RAM, while the iPhone 12 will continue to use 4GB RAM, to help the growing number of multitasking scenarios.
As for the screen, the iPhone 11 may be the last generation with the LCD screen of apple’s flagship machine. According to the Wall Street l reported that iPhone 12 has great probability to emblem OLED screen, and the Korean media reported that the iPhone 12 screen’s supplier will be Samsung and LG, including LG sealed the deal of 20 million pieces of OLED screen.
According to many medias, the iPhone 12 Pro series will carry the 120Hz ProMotion screen, which uses the technology similar to iPad Pro to adjust the refresh rate according to the displayed content. In iOS 14 Beta 1, the option to limit the refresh rate appears in the Settings, which proves the existence of high refresh rate screen in the iphone.
As for battery life, which is concerned by many people, the iPhone 12 will be more aggressive in terms of battery capacity. According to a report from EverythingApplePro, the iPhone 12 Pro Max will have a 4,400mAH battery and could break the iPhone 11 Pro Max’s record to be the most durable iPhone
Offer attractive prices by reducing costs
The hottest news about the iPhone 12 recent days has been that it won’t come with a charging head or earphones. When you receive a brand-new iPhone 12, all it has is a phone, a sticker, an instruction book, and a C to L cable.
As soon as the news came out, there was a lot of complaints on social media, without Earphones? Fine! But even the ancestral 5V 1A charging head will not come…
The 3D model of iPhone 12 box leaked as below, only stuffed with a cable and an instruction book, with no room for earphones or charging head.
According to the leaker wrote on Twitter, Apple will remove the 5W, 12W and 18W chargers and replace them with A 20W charger. The detailed specifications are as follows, the type is A2305, with the output voltage of 5V/3A and 9V/2.22A, and the maximum output power of 20W.
The absence of EarPods could be a good move by Apple to sell AirPods. It is likely to launch a bundled promotion after the iPhone 12 series to stimulate demand for wireless Bluetooth earphones.
Jon Prosser said that the selling price of 5.4-inch iPhone 12 will be low to $649. In contrast, the iPhone 11 sells for $699. If the fact is true, the 5.4-inch iPhone 12’s price may be 4999 yuan. what a tempting offer it is!
Would you buy it?
The iPhone 11 released last year is known as the one selling very well in the Apple’s history. The most important reason is its low price. The starting price of the iPhone XR was $924, and finally declined to $785.
The price has become the biggest guarantee for iPhone’s sell. Analyzing the iPhone released in the past two years, the models which could be sold constantly well must have the sufficient sincerity in its price, such as iPhone XR or iPhone SE 2.
Therefore, it’s easy to imagine that the iPhone 12 could replicate the success of the iPhone 11 with the possibly moderate price.
If you’re a user of the iPhone 8 or earlier, the iPhone 12 is a great opportunity to upgrade. With 5G, big batteries and a good price, it’s hard to find a reason to miss it!
But if you’re a user of the iPhone XR and iPhone 11, my advice is to wait. Every four years, Apple will get a big upgrade to its look and configuration, including but not limited to high-pixel mainframes, USB-C ports, and sensor stabilization technology like “Micro pan-tit” of the Vivo.
