Apple is likely to be about to begin producing the iPhone 12, however a report suggests it’ll initially solely produce two of the 4 rumored fashions.
That’s in accordance with DigiTimes, which claims that the 6.1-inch commonplace iPhone 12 (rumored to be known as the iPhone 12 Max), and the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Professional will each enter mass manufacturing in July or August.
The report doesn’t say when the opposite rumored fashions (the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 and the 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Professional Max) will enter manufacturing, however the two 6.1-inch fashions being constructed first doesn’t essentially imply they are going to be accessible first.
Moderately, manufacturing of those fashions might have to begin earlier to have them prepared concurrently their siblings, as apparently they require contact modules which might be outsourced from totally different firms to these doing the majority of the display screen building.
Whereas the 5.4-inch and 6.7-inch fashions are stated to make use of Samsung screens which have the contact sensor positioned straight on the OLED panel, quite than requiring a separate, outsourced layer.
A delay is feasible
We’d in fact take this rumor with a pinch of salt, particularly as DigiTimes has a blended monitor file, however we’d anticipate Apple to begin mass producing the iPhone 12 vary quickly in any case.
And whereas this report doesn’t essentially level to a delay in release or a staggered release, with different models hitting stores at different times, both have been rumored as possibilities, with the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic causing disruption to Apple’s usual schedule.
Nothing is known for sure on that front yet though, and for now the usual month of September remains our best guess for at least the iPhone 12 announcement – whether or not you’ll actually be able to buy the phones then.
