A new report from Cowen investment bank suggests that the iPhone 12 series launch will be delayed by about two months. The launch will take place in November in place of the usual mid-September time-frame. A 1-month delay of both the launch and mass production timeframes due to the ongoing pandemic was suggested by earlier reports.
The new report predicts a combined 35 million unit production output in Q2 2020 which would be 13% lower than the same period last year. There should be 4 new models of the iPhone 12, all of which will support 5G connectivity and come with OLED panels with smaller notches. The screen diagonals will come in 5.4 and 6.7-inches range, with two 6.1-inch models in the middle. As far as the design is concerned, a square casing in a nod to the iPad Pro is expected.
It is expected that Apple will debut its A14 chipset based on TSMC’s 5nm process. RAM on the entry-level 5.4″ and 6.1″ iPhones will begin at 4GB. The premium 6.1″ and 6.7″ models will get 6GB RAM and up to 512GB storage. There’s also talks of a 128GB base storage option replacing the current 64GB one.
