Rumor | Apple iPhone 12 4G variant will be priced at US$549 according to unknown leaker
An interesting iPhone 12-related rumor has been posted by a previously unknown leaker on Twitter. The account called @omegaleaks has only been actively posting as of today and has already offered up a tasty tidbit about the iPhone 12. According to the source, Apple could introduce two 4G-only variants that are priced at affordable levels: US$549 for the presumably 5.4-inch regular model and US$649 for the larger 6.1-inch Max model.
There has been mention of a potential 4G variant of the iPhone 12 before, so even though it’s important to take the above rumor from a new leaker with a pinch of salt, there could be some truth behind it. For instance, an analyst called Daniel Ives has reportedly stated that Apple has lined up a 4G iPhone 12 to allow the company to take advantage of fans who baulk at paying the higher prices the Cupertino firm has been noted for in the past.
Prices for the 5G iPhone 12 models have already been leaked, and the figures offered up by @omegaleaks don’t seem unreasonable in comparison: The basic iPhone 12 (5G) has a price tag of US$649 apparently. If this leak is accurate then it would be another financially savvy move by Apple and would add a lot of heat to the already competitive midrange-price smartphone segment. For now, a 4G iPhone 12 priced at US$549 is nothing more than just a rumor, but even brand-new leakers have to start somewhere.
