I believe that there are fans who have been following asiaiphone until now. According to foreign media reports, after September, the attention of the outside world to Apple’s iPhone 12 has increased significantly, and foreign media reports have emerged in endlessly, but unfortunately, due to R&D testing And the supply chain has been affected. Apple has determined that it will delay its launch. It has not announced when it will be released.
But this year’s iPhone 12 is indeed unusual. Even when the official release date is still uncertain, various details and specifications have already been exposed. Previously, the starting price of US$699 abroad has been basically determined. For domestic users, the price of the iPhone 12 is currently pending. According to Mingmei’s years of experience, Apple’s new iPhone 12 series this year The starting price of the Bank of China should be the same as last year’s iPhone 11, starting from 5499. At the same time, there is news that this year’s iPhone 12 full series capacity will start from 128GB, and the price will not rise when the volume is increased. This shows that Apple attaches great importance to the sales of the iPhone 12 this year.
In fact, in order to reduce the price of the iPhone 12 series, Cook thought of many ways, including abandoning the charging head and earphones. Netizens also complained about this. After all, the official website of Apple’s original genuine charging head costs hundreds of dollars. Cook is indeed a “cost management master”.
In addition, it is worth mentioning today that some foreign media sources said that Apple may launch its 5G iPhone in two stages, the first stage is two 6.1-inch models, and the second stage is the other two 6.7 and 5.4-inch devices.
Foreign media reported that the iPhone 12 may be launched in stages based on the shipment status of the iPhone 12 type carrier board (SLP) disclosed by industry chain sources. According to industry chain sources, the class carrier board for the 6.1-inch version of the iPhone 12 has been shipped on a large scale in July, while the class carrier board for the 5.4-inch and 6.7-inch versions only started in mid-to-late August. Mass shipments.
The class carrier board is a kind of printed circuit board. It is equipped with various active and passive components. It is the provider of electrical connection of electronic components. It is an indispensable part of the iPhone 12. The shipment status of the class carrier board is to a certain extent. Reflects the mass production status of iPhone 12, which will be more obvious in the early stage of mass production.
There are also many rumors that due to delays in development and production, and due to delayed reports from Apple suppliers such as Broadcom and Qualcomm, the new iPhone will not be released on time, but this is the first time that news has come out that it may be phased. roll out.
Of course, Apple once sold the iPhone twice in the same year. Just in 2017, Apple released the iPhone 8/8plus and the iPhone X. At that time, iPhone X was the first generation of Apple’s full-screen mobile phone, but it was on the shelves one month after the press conference. The situation this time is basically the same as that of the year, because of production capacity issues, Apple has delayed the time to market.
In addition, in terms of appearance: Although this year’s iPhone 12 all adopt a right-angle middle frame design, in order to distinguish between Pro models and ordinary models, Apple will probably still make differentiated choices in the materials of the middle frame and the back of the phone. The basic iPhone 12 will use an aluminum right-angle middle frame + glass back cover, and the iPhone 12 Pro series will use a stainless steel right-angle middle frame + glass back cover. So although the design pays tribute to the retro-era iPhone, the materials used are all modern! It is said that the color of the shell is also innovative with the addition of metallic blue. In contrast to the elegant rose gold and the calm black, the punk-style metallic blue may attract more fans.
It is worth noting that there are rumors that a 6.7-inch iPhone and a 6.1-inch model will be high-end devices with triple-lens cameras, while 5.4 and 6.1-inch models will be equipped with dual-lens cameras and are more affordable Low-end iPhone.
In addition to upgrading the iPhone 12 series camera lens this year, Apple is also introducing ToF sensors or LiDAR scanners (previously appearing on the 2020 iPad Pro) in the front and rear lenses to achieve a better AR/VR experience for users.
In addition, the iPhone 12 series may use Qualcomm’s 5G baseband solution to bring faster and more stable 5G network connectivity. According to the current U.S. International Trade Commission’s revelations, iPhones this year and the next few years will use the Snapdragon X55, Snapdragon X60, Snapdragon X65 and Snapdragon X70 5G basebands respectively. Among them, the iPhone 12/12 Max uses the Sub-6 solution, and the iPhone 12 Pro/Pro Max will add a millimeter wave solution on this basis. In this year when 5G facilities are not popular, users’ 5G network experience will not make obvious differences in most scenarios.
For domestic users, whether to support millimeter wave or not may only be a difference in parameters, and a little bit more will allow you to spend more money on technology that you don’t need. At present, the 5G networks under construction in China are basically FR1 networks, and even the coverage of the SA network is not perfect. At present, Shenzhen has announced the full coverage of 5G independent networking, and the other areas are basically NSA networks.
If you want to build a 5G commercial network with wider coverage, Sub-6GHz has the advantage of greater coverage, while the main application scenarios such as millimeter wave are scenarios such as dense population coverage such as airports.
On the whole, iPhone 12 has finally made up for the last shortcoming of 5G, so the overall attention is very high. Especially on the premise that it is basically determined that there is no substantial price increase, it is expected that the overall hot sales will surpass the previous generation models. Although the addition of 5G will increase the cost significantly, the price that is not too high will definitely have fruit fans shouting, it is really fragrant!
Finally, what Mingmei Wuxian wants to say is: A few days ago, it was reported that Apple will issue a press release at 9 am Eastern Time on September 8, which means that the iPhone 12 series line may be announced at about 10 pm Beijing time tonight. On the release time. Whether this news is true or not, wait for the answer to be announced tonight.
In addition to the iPhone 12 series that everyone is concerned about, Apple will release many new products this year. The new iPad and iPad Pro series are also ready, as well as the Apple Watch 6 series, the ARM version of the MacBook notebook series and so on.
No matter which statement comes true, it is a good thing for fruit fans in the end, after all, Apple has not released a new product for a long time.
So whether it is online rumors or official new news, it is enough to see everyone’s expectations for new products. Then we will wait and see, follow Mingmei’s infinite attention to the future new product launch!
