A report from @omegaleaks via Twitter claims that Apple will launch a sub-$600 iPhone this year. According to the report, Apple is going to offer a 4G-variant of the entry-level 5.4-inch iPhone 12 for $549. If previous rumors are also true, this could mean that Apple is going to set the iPhone 12 in five different price brackets.
The report corroborates the pricing scheme reported by @Jon_Prosser on Twitter back in April. It listed the iPhone 12’s prices going from $649, $749, $999, and $1099.
Apple is expected to announce the iPhone 12 family sometime in September with mass-production reported to begin in July.
There will be three sizes, but there might be a total of 5 variants with today’s news. From cheapest to most expensive, there will be an LTE-only 5.4-inch iPhone 12 with dual cameras for $549, a 5G 5.4-inch iPhone 12 for $649, a larger 6.1-inch (also 5G) iPhone 12 for $749, a 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro for $999 with three cameras, and a larger 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max for $1099.
