It’s already known that the new iPhone is late. The Coronavirus emergency has halted China’s production and it will have to recover 2 months of stop. But the rumors about iPhone 12 keep coming. It will have something more and something less.
Four 5G versions
The source, always reliable, is the analyst Ming Chi-Kuo, who guesses almost always right. The new iPhones, he says, will all launch with 5G connection. And in 4 different cuts, for the base model or the pro one.
According to the rumors, the display will have a size ranging from 5,4 to 6,7 inches. The 120 hz refresh rate adopted by the big competitors will not be there. Also, according to Ming Chi-Kuo, mass production would start in September, with the largest one releasing in October due to a slightly different design.
The design of iPhone 12 is made to remind that of the iPad Pro, with slightly squared sides. The rear cameras will have the same design as the current ones.
A green choice
We were talking about the downs. Apple has been committed for years in making the company more sustainable, and here starts the war against eletronic waste. In practice, in the package there will be no charger, since there are already too many around. There will also not be earphones, for the same reason.
It goes without saying that this move also has a commercial reason: it would force many consumers without accessories to buy them. Preferably in their top versions: that means the 20W charger and the Air Pods earphones. Which, as you know, Tim Cook doesn’t sell at a low price. In short: we will see if – in the case that the indiscrection is confirmed – their absence will be compensated by a decrease in the price of the smartphone.
