The iPhone is synonymous with quality. Therefore, every year we are aware of the improvements that are launched in the new devices that come on the market. In this case, we will talk about the iPhone 12, which, according to the Infobae website, was initially intended to be presented at an event on September 10, according to the leaks of an Apple publication on its official YouTube account.
However, that information could be from an old post. According to what the Filo News media highlights, the apple company decided to delay the launch of the iPhone 12 due to the coronavirus. Therefore, this version ensures that it will not be presented in September, as in previous years, but that it would have to wait until October.
Therefore, we decided to collect all the information we have so far on this device, which has an unrivaled community of fans, but also promises to revolutionize the field of smartphones. Let's see, then, the possible details of the iPhone 12.
The possible specifications of the iPhone 12
The first newest feature is that, according to what the El Periódico website portrays, the iPhone 12 will be the company's first mobile phone that has connectivity to 5G networks. That is, this involves the operation of a specific antenna, which also caused some problems in production, due to the complexity of this technology.
However, that does not mean that there is no more information on other interesting sections. According to what the La Nación website reports, the iPhone 12 Pro Max, the newer version that would be announced in the future, would have a 6.7-inch screen, along with a refresh rate of 120 Hz, being the same as that of the iPad Pro.
In addition to the base version, up to three other models would be included, as has been the case in previous editions. That is, the basic model, the iPhone 12, will have the lowest specifications and the best price, ideal for any audience. The other three versions could be the 12 Max, 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max, the latter being the most complete.
Now, in general terms, the Applesfera website brings good news in terms of performance. According to what they mention, the iPhone 12 will have an energy improvement of 30%, in addition to 15% more power compared to its predecessors. This means, basically, that we will even have a much more stable handling of the different functionalities of iOS, Apple's operating system.
Another point that users want to know is the photographic aspect, always revered by Apple users. Well, as GQ Magazine highlights, the iPhone 12 will be the “smartphone with the best camera on the market”, since it could generate a redesign of the entire camera with the appearance of a new lens, adding 4 in total (the previous generation innovated with three).
We already have, therefore, many of the probable specifications of the phone. However, there is an important aspect that we must talk about: the price . The CNet website provides that the initial price of the base model will be $ 649, although this would increase depending on the version we choose. That is, if we opt for the Pro, Max or Pro Max model.
However, there is one aspect that few take into account ... and it is Apple's phone renewal system. We talk about the promotions they launch in which you can take the latest model, as long as you contribute a previous one as part of payment. That way, the company can use the parts for new builds and you're going to see a reduction in prize.
So, before the launch of the iPhone 12, what would happen, as reported by the FayerWayer website, is a discontinuation in the XR model. At the same time, there could be a reduction in the price of the iPhone 11, with a discount of $ 150 and could even be applied to the iPhone SE.
Therefore, the future launch of the iPhone 12 will not only mean a revolution in terms of technical specifications, but also in the possibility for users to acquire the most recent models at a much tighter price. The company led by Tim Cook is synonymous with evolution and innovation, a characterization that they will seek to maintain with this phone.
