6.1-inch iPhone 12 to Be the Most Popular Among the Four Models; Smaller 5.4-inch iPhone 12 mini to Come in Second Place
As you’ve heard for quite a while now, Apple is expected to launch four new iPhone 12 models during its October 13 ‘Hi, Speed’ event. One of those models is going to be the less pricey 6.1-inch one, and according to a renowned analyst working at TF International Securities, it’s going to be the most popular out of the four. In fact, he says it’s going to be so popular that it will outsell the smaller iPhone 12 mini, which is reported to arrive with a 5.4-inch OLED screen.
iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max to Account for the Same Percentage of Shipments
According to Ming-Chi Kuo in his investor’s note, the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 will be the most popular out of the four, accounting for up to 45 percent of overall shipments. The iPhone 12 mini is expected to secure second place, with Kuo stating that this model could account for up to 25 percent of total shipments. The iPhone 12 Pro and the iPhone 12 Pro Max, the more premium versions that will directly succeed the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max are expected to account for up to 20 percent of overall shipments each.
Demand is present for a smaller, and more powerful iPhone, but it’s not available in large numbers. The 6.1-inch iPhone 12 should deliver the ideal blend between increased screen real estate and improved battery life. Thanks to the larger display, the 6.1-inch display size is inherently big enough to house a larger battery, so it should effortlessly last longer than the iPhone 12 mini. According to a previous rumor, the iPhone 12 mini’s battery endurance will be worse than an iPhone 11, with rumors stating that its capacity won’t go higher than 2,227mAh.
Kuo also notes that pricing will be a critical factor for an increased number of shipments this year. The 6.1-inch iPhone 12 is rumored to start from $799 for the base storage model. Despite the fact that no model gets a 120Hz OLED screen, all iPhone 12 versions will support 5G connectivity, making the pricing by 2020’s standards highly competitive. Do keep in mind that when the base Galaxy S20 launched, it set back customers by a whopping $999, so compare that to a $799-priced iPhone 12 and we can only guess which model will end up selling more units.
