As Apple’s likely September conference approaches, the rumor mill is in full swing. An informant believes today to have got his hands on the price of the different models ofiPhone 12 that the Cupertino company should market by the end of the year.
On Twitter, @komiya_kj, an informant with a rather good reputation in the apple bite sphere, shares not only the price of the different models, but also the capacity of their respective batteries.
iPhone 12: a low price entry ticket
As we know, Apple will unveil four new iPhones in September, including the release could nevertheless be delayed until November due to Covid-19.
Four devices, all with OLED displays and 5G compatible, and which were expected to explode the prices usually charged by Apple. But according to @komiya_kj, the bill would not be much higher than in previous years. See instead.
- iPhone 12 5G (5,4″) :
- 64 Go : 699$
- 128 Go : 749$
- 256 Go : 849$
- iPhone 12 Max 5G (6,1″) :
- 64 Go : 799$
- 128 Go : 849$
- 256 Go : 949$
- iPhone 12 Pro 5G (6,1″) :
- 128 Go : 1049$
- 256 Go : 1149$
- 512 Go : 1349$
- iPhone 12 Pro Max 5G (6,7″) :
- 128 Go : 1149$
- 256 Go : 1249$
- 512 Go : 1449$
By way of comparison, the current iPhone 11 Pro Max is trading in dollars for 999 tickets in its 64 GB version. This year, Apple would therefore draw a line on the 64 GB storage to go to 128 GB and charge a surplus of 50 $ in passing. Rather honest. Especially since the entry-level iPhone 12 would appear at only $ 699, which is the exact same price as the current iPhone 11 (which, in France, is sold for € 809).
The “5G and OLED tax” could ultimately be more painless than expected on this new generation.
Lower capacity batteries
Unless there is a real energy revolution on the Apple A14, we should not expect a very enduring generation. According to information from leaker, all new iPhone models have a smaller battery than the previous generation.
- iPhone 12 : 2,227 mAh (compared to 3,110 mAh for the iPhone 11)
- iPhone 12 Max : 2,815 mAh (compared to 3,110 mAh for the iPhone 11)
- iPhone 12 Pro : 2,775 mAh (compared to 3,046 mAh for the iPhone 11 Pro)
- iPhone 12 Pro Max : 3,687 mAh (compared to 3,969 mAh for the iPhone 11 Pro Max)
Compromises, explains @komiya_kj, due to the photo configuration which will take up more space on the iPhone 12 this year. The iPhone 12 Pro Max, in particular, has a smaller battery than the iPhone 11 Pro Max because of the LiDAR sensor that it carries on the back. Same reasoning for the iPhone 12 Pro compared to the iPhone 12 Max: the photo configuration would take up more internal space in the more expensive model, and would therefore cut back on battery life.
