Apple has never sold a new iPhone with an OLED screen at the cost for less than $ 1,000, but this may change this year. Insider John Prosser revealed the cost of the iPhone 12, which, if we talk about budget models, will seem quite attractive to many potential customers.
What is the cost of an iPhone 12?
Apple will release four models at once, the company has the opportunity to revise its pricing policy. So, according to an insider, the cost of the iPhone 12 starts at $ 649 for the cheapest model. An insider said that he received this information from a source that accurately predicted the release date of the new iPhone SE.
If you believe Prosser, then Apple will set such prices for the basic iPhone 12 models:
5.4-inch iPhone 12 – $ 649
6.1-inch iPhone 12 – $ 749
6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro – $ 999
6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max – $ 1,099
Earlier, a reputable analyst, Min-Chi Kuo, reported that all four smartphones will receive an OLED screen and 5G support. The 5.4- and lower-priced 6.1-inch models are expected to be equipped with a dual camera. The flagship device company Tim Cook will complete with a triple camera with a LiDAR scanner.
Despite the fact that the reliability of the Prosser data is in doubt, it is easy to believe in the release of an iPhone with an OLED screen worth up to $ 1,000 this year. If Apple releases the 5.4-inch iPhone at an affordable price, then it could become one of the top bestsellers in the company’s history. Moreover, it is necessary to take into account the difficult economic situation in the world due to the coronavirus pandemic. It is unlikely that at this time, buyers will be massively looking towards expensive premium devices.
Apple plans to introduce the iPhone 12 lineup in September. However, at least one model will only be available in October or November.
