Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) next flagship iPhone is on its way in-line with the annual renewal cycle. IPhone 12 is the new device that Apple is hoping to use to disrupt the smartphone landscape that appears to have hit saturation levels in recent years.
iPhone 12 Features
Reports indicate that the tech giant has already asked manufacturers to produces over 75 million units of the new device, banking on strong demand for 5G devices in the market. There have already been lots of leaks signaling how the device would look like featuring a possible flat side design and three size options across four models.
With the launch expected sometime next month, the rumor mill signals the possibility of two models going on sale in October and two other in November. The cheapest models of the two devices are likely to feature dual rear cameras with the expensive models coming with three cameras supported by the LiDAR depth sensor.
Immediate reports indicate the new iPhones will not come with the highly publicized ProMotion Displays. The 120Hz display was highly expected to enable smooth screen animations, more responsive interactions, and better gaming performance. It has since emerged that battery life management with the display was one of the reasons why Apple decided to drop it altogether.
iPhone 12 Cases
With the new iPhone slated for release in October, case maker Totallee has already unveiled iPhone 12 thin cases on its website. If these are indeed cases for the upcoming iPhone, it would mark the eighth consecutive year that the firm has successfully launched accessories before the phone itself.
The new case suggests that the new iPhone will come with a flat design similar to the iPhone 4 style design. Customers will be able to choose white or black cases as part of the new case designs by Totallee. There will also be matte navy-blue or green in polypropylene cases.
IPhone is banking on the new flagship devices to reinvigorate a slowdown in sales in recent years. Sales growth has tanked in recent years amid concerns of saturation in the market.
