Apple fans are on edge to see the iPhone 12 lineup release. So far, there is no official release date to confirm the next flagship series. However, according to a DigiTimes report, the new production of smartphones from Apple will start in July.
The report says that the company will perform the second phase of its “EVT” or “Engineering Validation and Testing” stage at the end of June. However, the production of the iPhone 12 lineup will start a month after this phase is complete.
What is interesting about this report is that it implies that all iPhone 12 models will enter the production phase at the same time. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean that all models will have the same release date.
Usually, Apple announces its new smartphones in September. However, according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo as well as other sources, claimed that the premium models would come out later than the basic models. The iPhone 12 Pro models will support an ultra-fast mmWave 5G capacity. Therefore, due to challenges, the production will move on slower.
Why so, you may wonder. Well, Kuo explains that the production of mmWave iPhones would be delayed due to design changes of the antenna-in-package that takes place in April. The basic iPhone 12 models will more than likely feature a sub-6GHz 5G, which won’t impede their release in September.
Apple expected launches
Based on the latest news, Apple will release four new models this year: an iPhone 12 model with a 5.4-inch screen, another with a 6.1-inch display, followed by two iPhone 12 Pro models with 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch screens.
As for the specs, all models will more than likely feature OLED displays, 5G support, and a smaller notch. Rumor has it that the two premium models will feature a LiDAR sensor. However, there is no official information to confirm these rumors.
