- Apple is expected to launch four iPhone 12 models with 5G networking support
- The entry-level iPhone 12 price starts at $649 (around Rs. 49,000)
- The price of the iPhone 12 will likely be higher in India
Apple is expected to unveil the new iPhone 12 series this year. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the cupertino-based company may delay the launch. All iPhone 12 series phones are likely to come with the 5G networking support. The price of the iPhone 12 series has been leaked by Jon Prosser on Twitter.
Jon Prosser is known to be quite accurate with his Apple report. He has also predicted the launch date of iPhone SE 2020, which turned out true. The iPhone 12 prices were given to him by the same source that gave him the information about the iPhone SE. Jon Prosser wrote in a tweet, “These prices were given to me from the same sources that nailed the iPhone SE launch date”.
According to the leaks, the entry-level iPhone 12 price will cost $649 (around Rs. 49,000). The phone will feature a 5.4-inch OLED display, 5G connectivity, and two rear cameras.
The 6.1-inch iPhone 12 with OLED display, 5G connectivity, and two rear cameras will cost $749 (around Rs. 56,600). The 6.1-inch iPhone 12 will be the successor to the 6.1-inch iPhone 11, which is currently available for $700 (around Rs. 52,900). Around $50 increase in price, but the newer model includes an OLED display along with 5G support.
The 6.1-inch Pro model will also support 5G connectivity and have a triple rear camera setup with a LiDAR sensor that will cost $999 (around Rs. 75,500). The top model, iPhone 12 Pro Max will cost $1,099 (around Rs. 83,100), and come with a 6.7-inch OLED display, 5G support, and triple-rear camera setup with LiDAR sensor.
If these prices are true then, the iPhone 12 series will be much cheaper than the Samsung Galaxy S20. The starting price of the iPhone 12 Pro Max will also cost much less than the $1400 (around Rs. 1,05,800) Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra.
The price of the iPhone 12 will likely be higher in India because of the recently hiked in Goods & Service Tax (GST) and the increasing difference in the exchange rate between USD and INR.
