New iPhone 12 pricing and all Leaks

The iPhone SE 2020 may be the latest device to join Apple's smartphone lineup. But it's not the only phone we're expecting to see from Cupertino this year. The iPhone 12 is coming, and we could be seeing as many as four new phones this fall.

That’s when the next iPhone is expected to arrive, at least assuming there are no delays triggered by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. And Apple is planning big changes for the devices set to replace the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max.,

iPhone 12 lineup - including almost finished design, and some specs. Well, we now have the first clues about pricing as well. Let's start with the premium ones. The iPhone 12 Pro with the 6.1-inch display will be selling for $999 while the iPhone 11 Pro Max successor with the massive 6.7-inch screen will ask $1,099. Which is exactly as much as their predecessors cost.

Of course, the pricing might change before launch but if it were to be true, we are seeing some pretty decent pricing as far as Apple smartphones go. This year we saw a significant rise in prices of some Android flagships that gained 5G support, but it looks like Apple isn't going to charge extra for that feature. The sources also add that we should expect the phones to arrive later this year because of the COVID-19 outbreak and we may see them sometime within the October-November time frame.

The iPhone 12's design is expected to bring back the flat metal-edge design of the iPhone 5. A report from Bloomberg has suggested this will come to pass, with the premium iPhone 12 variants expected to receive the new design treatment.

iPhone 12: What to expect

  • Four iPhone 12 models coming this fall, following the iPhone SE 2020's launch this month.
  • Expect two iPhone 12 devices with 5.4 and 6.1 inch displays and two iPhone 12 Pro models at 6.1 inches and 6.7 inches
  • Multiple iPhone 12 models will feature 5G connectivity via Qualcomm's 5G modem
  • The iPhone 12 Pros will likely add a time of flight sensor to the three rear cameras, which will aid in AR performance
  • All new iPhones could feature OLED screens, while the iPhone 12 Pro may offer 120Hz refresh rates

  • We've seen additional reports on the price and specs for all four iPhone 12 models.
  • A new iPhone 12 render shows what Apple's flagship could look like with a smaller notch and sides that are flat instead of curved.
  • A troubling new report says that the iPhone 12 mass production could be pushed back a month.
  • The iPhone 12 may get an under-display Touch ID sensor that uses ultrasonic technology.

iPhone 5G: Apple's first 5G phones

Speaking of 5G, a report from Nikkei says that all iPhone 12 models will ship with 5G networking capability, which means you wouldn't have to necessarily to step up to an iPhone 12 Pro Max to enjoy faster downloads. Reportedly, Apple will work with Qualcomm and Samsung to supply its 2020 iPhones with modems from both companies that can connect to 5G networks built on both mmWave and sub-6GHz spectrum.

According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (via CNBC), Qualcomm's development to date has been centered on mmWave, while Samsung has concentrated on sub-6GHz. 

Having support for both mmWave and sub-GHz 5G networks is important, because different carriers are using different technologies when rolling out their 5G networks. Verizon 5G is focusing, at least initially, on mmWave, which delivers the fastest speeds but typically requires line of sight.

T-Mobile and AT&T are concentrating on lower-band 5G, which delivers the longest range but not the fastest speeds. (T-Mobile and AT&T will are also working on mmWave but it's not as widespread.) And Sprint is using mid-band 5G. So it's critical that Apple's 5G iPhones support all of the above technologies. 

Now that Apple bought Intel’s modem business, it's expected that Apple will eventually stop getting its 5G modems from Qualcomm and will design its own modems in house, the same way it does for its A-series processors. That's unlikely to happen with the new iPhone 12, though.

Ming-Chi Kuo has made a new prediction about the iPhone 12's 5G capabilities — that it will use far fewer signal amplifiers than he first thought. This will mean slower 5G speeds as a result, but users outside of 5G areas definitely won't notice the difference, and those with access to certain 5G networks may not either, since the fledgling networks are not yet that much faster compared to 4G.

iPhone 12: How many models? 

Most of what we know about the new iPhone 12 thus far comes courtesy of a report from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who forecasts four different iPhone 12 models on tap for 2020: one at 5.4 inches, two at 6.1 inches and the largest variant measuring 6.7 inches. All four 2020 iPhones will have 5G, Kuo says.

Like the iPhone XR before it, the iPhone 11 features a Liquid Retina display instead of an OLED panel. 

As for other specs, an investor's note from UBS has predicted that the two largest iPhone 12 models (the 6.7 and 6.1-inch versions), will have 6GB RAM, while the smaller two (the second 6.1-inch model plus the 5.4-inch model) will stick with the same 4GB RAM found in the current iPhone 11. 6GB RAM will be the most memory found in an iPhone to date, which, combined with a new processor (likely the A14 Bionic) will keep Apple at the top of the smartphone performance charts. That'll especially be true if the A14 is manufactured on a 5-nanometer process, as some rumors have hinted. 

We now have confirmation that the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 model is more than a rumor. A Digitimes report on Apple's supply chain notes that two display makers are teaming up to make a display for a 5.4-inch iPhone. That would confirm there's a 5.4-inch iPhone 12 in the works. (That's different from the 4.7-inch iPhone SE 2020 that is arriving 24.)
