For those of you who are willing to buy the upcoming Apple iPhone 12, there’s some disheartening news. According to analyst Jeff Pu, the new iPhone may be priced at least $50 (roughly Rs. 3,700) higher than the iPhone 11 even after a missing charger or EarPods in the retail box. He claims that the reason behind it can be upcoming iPhone’s 5G support and OLED screen. While several reports have earlier claimed that Apple might ship the new iPhones without a bundled charger and EarPods, Jeff has further reiterated the claims.
In a report by MacRumours, Jeff has said that the 5.4-inch model of the upcoming iPhone 12 will start at $749 (roughly Rs. 56,300). For those caught unaware, the price will be $50 more than the price of iPhone 11’s base model, which was being sold at $699 (roughly Rs. 52,500) upon launch.
If we talk about the current lineup of iPhones, iPhone 11 comes with an LCD screen, whereas iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max carry OLED screens. Now Jeff claims that iPhone 12 with its price might be acceptable to customers owing to 5G. The report also adds that 6.1-inch version of the iPhone 12 might begin at $799 (roughly Rs. 60,000) or $849 (roughly Rs, 63,800). The price is $150 (roughly Rs. 11,200) more as compared to an iPhone 11 of the same size.
Earlier in April 2020, the same portal had said that iPhone 12 pricing may range from $649 (roughly Rs. 48,700) to $1,099 (Rs. 82,600), depending on the model. Then it June, it followed it up by suggesting that iPhone 12 won’t come bundled with EarPods or a wall charger in an attempt to boost the sale of AirPods.
Meanwhile, Apple is expected to launch the iPhone 12 this autumn, albeit, no official date has been announced. The company has also not said whether the presence of 5G will impact the price of iPhone 12 Pro or iPhone 12 Pro Max model.
