Apple’s upcoming iPhone 12 may come at much heftier price tag with an increase of almost $50 or Rs 3,700 more than the current iPhone 11 series despite being missing on a charger and EarPods in the retail box, suggest Apple analyst Jeff Pu.
The main reason is said to be the introduction of the latest 5G connection technology. Tech analyst, Jeff Pu has shared a note to MacRumors that portray some tiny yet assuring details related to the price of the upcoming iPhone 12 series.
According to Pu, the iPhone 12 will start at $749 (roughly Rs 56,600) for the 5.4-inch model. This would be $50 more than last year’s 6.1-inch iPhone 11. Pu claims the main verdict for this hike is the next generation in the connectivity.
According to him, 5G bandwidth connectivity and the introduction of an OLED screen seems to be the two price increment contenders. Even though iPhone 11 already includes the OLED screen, Pu thinks that the hike will be “Accepted” by the users.
This will be due to the very reason the prices are hiked: 5G technology. Many tech analysts forecasts suggest that Apple may be working on bringing out some new upgrades in their latest smartphone. And looking over such rumors now, the fact seems to be more legit.
According to MacRumors, the iPhone 12 will cost around Rs 48,852 while the iPhone 12 Max will be priced at Rs 56,380. The two advanced variants, the iPhone 12 Pro and the iPhone 12 Pro Max are also rumored to be priced at Rs 75,219 and Rs 82,749 respectively.

Seeing a tough competition in the tech industry, brands like Apple and Samsung are striving hard to maintain their customer satisfaction. And to overcome the cluster of hurdles, new upgrades are being introduced recently.

The iPhone 12 should also be featuring two cameras, while the iPhone 12 Pro models will likely add a telephoto lens and a LiDAR sensor. According to the rumors, this telephoto lens is a patented idea of Apple and is intended to be a major upgrade in the camera section.
The new lens will enhance the camera quality and will be used for augmented reality apps. The iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max are also rumored to feature 120Hz ProMotion displays which is a tough competition to the newly launched Samsung Galaxy S20.
The phone comes in 4GB and 6GB RAM and 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB internal storage space. The iPhone 12 and the iPhone 12 Max comes with a dual rear camera setup while the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max will house a triple camera setup.
With the ongoing pandemic throughout the world, the new phone is already late for almost 6 months. Seeing an overall production shutdown, Apple has also shifted its launch date in the fall of 2020. Till now, no specific dates have been released.
