Purchasing a 5G smartphone in early 2021 may not be worth the pain for most people because of how expensive these models are. In order to not alienate their customers, Apple will launch the iPhone 12 4G edition and it is going to be an extremely affordable alternative at just $549.
Apple’s concept of being the most expensive company in the world is changing a lot these days. The company’s recent launch of the iPhone SE 2020 was priced at $399 and that is possibly the cheapest any iPhone could get today. Besides, with economic situations smothering people worldwide, it is no wonder there is a sudden hike in affordable products because they are easier to purchase and get the job done.
Instead of convincing buyers to spend over a $1000 on their 5G smartphone, the new iPhone 12 4G edition will be innovative in lots of different ways. In recent news, it was revealed that the phone may get shipped with a 20W charger bundled in it. It will also usher in USB Type C port for the first time on an iPhone which brings in a better situation for manufacturers and users. You should probably be able to charge it quickly using most other chargers or a Type C cable if you have one lying in your home.
Apple according to the Twitter leakster on Omega Leaks and Rumors, will launch an entry level iPhone 12 4G edition priced at $549 while the iPhone 12 Max will be more expensive at $649. Either way, these are still affordable smartphones for most buyers. Even if you are looking for a larger display, it wouldn’t hurt to spend more to own it instead of having to go for the more expensive iPhone 12 5G variant.
It is speculated that Apple will launch four variants of iPhone 12 with 5G but considering these two models, it goes up to six models. With months to go before the official launch, this is going to be a long wait before we know for sure.
