While it started 2020 with the new iPhone SE, Apple is widely expected to issue no less than five new iPhones this year, meaning that we are still on the hook for four more devices to arrive in the fall.
The Apple iPhone 12 5G models would be pricier, still skip the charger and earphones
According to them, the Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max tag may hit $1199, here’s a full list of their expected iPhone 12 5G 2020 models pricing:
- Apple iPhone 12 price: $699-$749
- Apple iPhone 12 Max price: $799-$849
- Apple iPhone 12 Pro: $1049-$1099
- Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max: $1149-$1199
The way to lower its price would be with lowering part prices, and the display is one of the main component costs. Since panel makers rarely lower their prices, especially in the oligopoly of the OLED market, then another solution would be to discard the need for additional touch layers and lower the panel price by 20%, say UBI analysts.
It’s apparently possible to do this on the 5.4″ iPhone 12, and harder to achieve with the 6″ and above OLED panel phones with touch add-ons, which could explain the lower starting price point that the TrendForce analysts suggests.
