Chinese leaky Kang, who has hit the nail on the head several times in the past, delivered what would be the menu for Apple's October 13 keynote. Along with information on a hypothetical MagSafe wireless charger for iPhone and a possible $ 99 HomePod mini, he detailed the entire iPhone 12 lineup.
Here are the commonalities between the four expected models: 5G compatibility (including with millimeter waves in the United States), Super Retina XDR display (previously reserved for iPhone 11 Pro) and more drop-resistant display. Then, each device will have its specificities:
- iPhone 12 mini (5.4 "): starting at $ 699. Available in black, white, blue and green. 64 GB to 256 GB. Dual camera (ultra wide-angle and wide-angle).
- iPhone 12 (6.1 "): starting at $ 799. Black, white, blue and green. 64 GB to 256 GB. Dual camera (ultra wide-angle and wide-angle).
- iPhone 12 Pro (6.1 "): starting at $ 999. Gold, silver, space gray and blue. 128 GB to 512 GB. Triple camera (ultra wide angle, wide angle and 4x telephoto) + LiDAR.
- iPhone 12 Pro Max (6.7 "): starting at $ 1,099. Gold, silver, space gray and blue. 128 GB to 512 GB. Triple camera (ultra wide angle, wide angle and 5x telephoto) + LiDAR .
The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro, the two 6.1 "models, would be the first available. Pre-orders would open on October 16 or 17, and they would release on October 23 or 24.
The iPhone 12 mini would arrive next: preorders on November 6 or 7 for availability on November 13 or 14. Finally, we would have to wait nearly a month for the big iPhone 12 Pro Max: preorders on November 13 or 14 for availability on November 20 or 21.
Although credible, this information should be taken with caution. We will be definitively fixed on October 13, during the special event .
Update – In his pre-keynote summary paper, the always well-informed Mark Gurman “confirms” some of the rumors concerning the iPhone 12. The four models will indeed use an OLED screen (exit the LCD of the iPhone 11), on the other hand the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 will have aluminum edges; the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max will be entitled to stainless steel, a LiDAR and three photo modules on the back. None will provide an AC adapter or headphones. The iPhone 12 Pro Max would not be available until later this year.
