iPhone 12 range pricing and model numbers leaked
The iPhone 12 might be pushed back at around a month from Apple’s original launch plans with October looking like the likely window. While more bits and pieces of news about the devices are still to inevitably leak, we actually already know most of the important details. This, of course, includes how it will look, key features of its A14 processor, camera and the fact that there will be four new models this year.
What we didn’t know until now is the price fans will be paying for the all-new iPhone 12 designs as well as what features will be included at each of the pricing tiers. According to the apparently very well-connected Apple insider Jon Prosser, the new smaller 5.4-inch iPhone model is going by the model designation of D52G and will start at US$649, or US$50 less than the starting price of the non-Pro iPhone 11. It will include an OLED display, 5G and two rear cameras.
There will be two models with a 6.1-inch display, one non-Pro and the other the first of the two Pro iPhone 12 models. The 6.1-inch non-Pro model is going by the designation D53G and will be priced at US$749 (up US$50 on the iPhone 11-equivalent) and will also include two cameras and 5G. The 6.1-inch Pro model carries the model designation D53P and will pick up three rear cameras along with the LiDAR scanner and will start at US$999.
The new 6.7-inch sized iPhone 12 Pro Max is designated D54P and will have the same feature set as its smaller stablemate. It will be priced from US$1,099. Overall, despite the big jump in performance and substantial design, camera upgrades and 5G standard across the range, Apple looks like it has been able to keep the prices relatively steady. Base storage is still expected to stay at 64 GB while the gravy for Apple in terms of margins will be the upgraded storage variants as has historically been the case.
