Well-known insider Roland Quandt wrote on the WinFuture website: “In total, five new iPhones will be released this year, one of which is positioned as an entry-level model.”
Continuing the message, the whistleblower says: “Thus, Apple is adapting the strategy of previous years, when the iPhone 11 is the base model, and the Pro versions cover more paying regions.”
This information Roland Quandt, according to him, received from one of the German networks for the sale of equipment. What is the fifth smartphone in question, the insider does not explain. Earlier, most informants announced the appearance of four devices – iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max.
We can assume that this is referring to the iPhone SE (2020), which was presented in the spring – but it seems that this is not the case. Roland Quandt adds just below: “According to our data, the cheapest iPhone 12 will come in a wide range of colors. The customer can choose between black, white, blue, red, yellow and coral. ” The aforementioned iPhone SE (2020) is not available in these colors.
“The other four new models in the iPhone 12 series will come with a much more manageable color palette. In the future, the buyer will have a choice between black, white and silver versions. So Apple seems to be saying goodbye to the latest versions offered in green or gold with the iPhone 12 Pro, and basically returning to its classic color choices, ”the source clarifies.
Further, the insider says that the base iPhone 12 will receive modifications with a memory capacity of 64, 128 and 256 GB. Older – 128, 256 or 512 GB. At the end, Roland Quandt says that the presentation of new products will take place on October 13th.
Recall: at least four smartphones will receive OLED screens of 5.4, 6.1 (two devices), and 6.7 inches. The processor will be Apple A14 Bionic (5-nm process technology). The main cameras will be double and triple. XDA-Developers resource editor Max Weinbach wrote a couple of days ago that the 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max is very different from other gadgets – in particular, this model will receive a LiDAR scanner and a Pro Motion display with a frequency of 120 Hz.
And in the boxes with all the new products, only the USB-C to Lightning cable will supposedly remain. There will be no power adapters or headphones. The estimated starting price of the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 in the US is $ 699 or $ 749.
