On August 26, a well-known foreign whistleblower @komiya_kj broke the news on Twitter that due to the shortage of new 5G baseband components on Apple’s side, the iPhone 12 Pro model will be delayed and the regular iPhone 12 model will be delayed. With higher expectations, I hope to be able to market as soon as possible.
Then another whistleblower @iAppleTimes also came out and revealed that due to the delay of the 5G modem chip, the iPhone 12 Pro will not start production until September. At present, the regular version of iPhone 12 has been officially put into production, and the 4G version of the iPhone 12 series will be launched in the first quarter of next year. Not long ago, it was also said that the 5.4-inch and 6.1-inch iPhone 12 may be delayed due to lens quality problems. Apple has solved the problem and officially put it into production.
The more important news is that @iAppleTimes broke the news that the iPhone 12 Pro Max confirmed that it will support 120Hz refresh rate, and the iPhone 12 Pro is likely to support 120Hz refresh rate, and no Samsung LTPO screen is used in all systems. At the same time, the 5.4-inch and 6.1-inch iPhone 12 models will be shipped in mid-October, and the 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro models will be shipped in late October or early November.
In terms of price, the starting price of the iPhone 12 series is US$699, which is approximately RMB 4,800; the starting price of the iPhone 12 Pro series is US$999, which is approximately RMB 6,800; and the top version of the iPhone 12 Pro Max 512GB is priced at 1399 US dollars, about 9600 yuan (USD $1371) . Compared with the previous generation, the price has not changed much. It can be regarded as an increase in volume without an increase in price. However, whether the actual situation is consistent with the news has yet to be officially announced at the press conference.
