In the early hours of October 7, 2020, Apple officially announced that the launch of this year’s iPhone 12 series will be held at 10:00 AM on October 13th (Beijing time at 1:00 AM on October 14th) at Apple. The Park headquarters is held in the park, and it is still carried out through online live broadcast.
According to previous exposure materials, iPhone12 has 4 types, named iPhone12mini, iPhone12, iPhone12Pro, iPhone12ProMax.
They use OLED panels and continue the full screen with bangs. The screen sizes are 5.4 inches, 6.1 inches, 6.1 inches, and 6.7 inches in order. At the same time, they use a right-angle metal middle frame similar to the iPhone4, which is more aggressive overall, adding more colors such as navy blue.
There were rumors that the iPhone 12 added a lidar camera, but from the current situation, it should only appear on the iPhone 12 Pro series. With the blessing of this technology, the new iPhone can obtain a stronger anti-shake effect, and Features such as ultra-high-definition resolution, 3D imaging, and background blur will all appear on this phone. Of course, the iPhone 12’s front lens supports custom background blur adjustment, built-in multiple stage light effects, ultra-wide-angle night shooting, etc., all make it even more powerful.
In addition, iPhone12mini is named after iPhone using mini. It may use a simple B14 processor and does not support 5G. The battery capacity is only 2227mah, mainly due to small screen and cost performance.
The other three iPhone 12s all use the normal A14 chip and all support 5G networks. However, the 5G networks they support are also different. Only the Pro version of iPhone 12 supports millimeter wave 5G networks, while iPhone 12 supports centimeter wave 5G networks.
In terms of battery life, the battery capacities of the 4 iPhone12 phones are 2227mAh, 2775mAh, 2815mAh, and 3687mAh. Fortunately, the charging power of the iPhone 12 series has been upgraded to 20 watts of wired fast charging. Compared with the previous “Five Fortunes and One Peace”, the charging power has increased significantly. But this time iPhone 12 may not send charging heads and earphones. Apple’s official explanation is for environmental protection. In fact, everyone knows the real reason.
Of course, reducing the headset is not a big deal for some people, or even a good thing. Because according to the existing news, Apple canceled the option of earphones in order to reduce costs and lower the price. Therefore, the price of iPhone 12 this year will not be very high, which is also a point of joy for “fruit fans.” But this also shows Cook’s scheming side, no matter what, he will not lose himself, although the price will be reduced, but the cost of the accessories will be cancelled. So simply speaking, Apple is not losing money, and even selling accessories in the later period will make Apple’s income higher than the income of bonus accessories.
In addition, the price of the new iPhone is the most concerned of all analyses. It can be seen from the opinions of all parties that the outside world agrees that the basic iPhone 12 model will be cheaper than the iPhone 11 starting at $699.
If I remember correctly, when the iPhone 11 was launched last year, its basic model was priced at US$699, which is US$50 cheaper than the 2018 iPhone XR. This trend may continue this year. Some analysts predict that Apple will set the price of the iPhone 12 at $649, the iPhone 12 Pro at $999, and the iPhone 12 Pro Max at $1,099.
In other words, the price of the iPhone 12 National Bank should be between 4699-4999 yuan (RMB); iPhone 12 (128GB version) is about 5599 yuan; iPhone 12 Pro (128GB version) is about 6999 yuan; iPhone 12 Pro Max (128GB version) is about 7699 yuan.
It’s also worth mentioning today that the rumors about Apple’s purchase of BOE screens have been very long. The news in June of this year claimed that BOE’s OLED screens had quality problems and failed Apple’s test, so they missed the chance to become Apple’s supplier.
However, things have suddenly reversed recently. Mingmei has learned from the supply chain that the OLED screens of the other two models except the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max are supplied by BOE.
In other words, BOE will be responsible for supplying the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 screens, which is the first time for a domestic screen manufacturer.
Based on previous rumors, the screen sizes that BOE is responsible for supplying this time are 5.4 inches and 6.1 inches respectively. If this report is credible, it means a turnaround. It also shows that BOE B11 OLED screens are no matter the yield rate. The quality is recognized by Apple. Being able to obtain Apple’s approval means that the quality of the OLED screens produced by BOE has reached the world’s first-class ranks.
Of course, from the perspective of Apple’s style, BOE should not be the only supplier of these two iPhone screens, and the supply ratio is still unknown.
In fact, BOE has entered Apple’s supply chain before and is the main supplier of display panels for products such as Apple Watch.
In addition, data shows that the number of iPhone users who have used the iPhone for more than 2 years in the Chinese market has “set a record”, which also laid the foundation for the “potentially strong upgrade cycle” after the release of the new iPhone. The “major upgrade cycle is the strongest in at least four years”, and it is expected that iPhone12 series shipments “will accelerate significantly in the 2021 fiscal year.”
In addition, many analysts have predicted that the sales of Apple’s first 5G mobile phones will explode, and the iPhone 12 series will also drive global sales of 5G mobile phones. It is undeniable that fruit fans have been looking forward to the 5G version of the iPhone for a long time. I believe that after the release of the iPhone 12, many fruit fans will be sought after.
Finally, as for the release time, the Apple special event will meet you on October 14. Everyone in front of the screen may wish to bear with it a little longer.
