Regarding the next flagship iPhone 12 (provisional) series, while the factory in China is restarting after a temporary suspension due to the infection with the new coronavirus, there is a concern that the demand in the world will decline "And" There is a possibility that it will slip next year ".
Under these circumstances, analysts predict that two of the three sizes will be released in September, but one will be delayed until October. MacRumors has received research notes from Jeff Pu, an analyst at GF Securities, a Chinese securities firm. The development schedule for the iPhone 12 series is likely to be slightly delayed due to current travel restrictions (with the U.S. and China where the iPhone factory is located) and delays in freight flights, resulting in the release of the top-end model 6.7 inches. May be slower.
Specifically, the development status of the iPhone 12 series is that the EVT (Engineering Validation Test) stage has been extended by two weeks. In general, mass production of the new iPhone involves the EVT followed by the DVT (design verification test) followed by the PVT (production verification test) process. That said, in February this year Apple was affected by the new CoronaOnce reported to have left EVTIt may be a step forward.
The EVT period for the 5.4-inch and 6.1-inch models will be at the end of April, and the 6.7-inch model will be in mid-May. As a result, the former two will be released in September, followed by the 6.7 inches in October–Pu predicts so.
The two-stage launch is similar to the previous iPhone XS / XS Max release in September, with the iPhone XR launching in October. Also in 2017, the iPhone 8/8 Plus was released in September, and the iPhone X in November.
In addition, Pu said that a low-cost model of the iPhone SE2 (provisional) was released in mid-April, suggesting that it will be announced as early as next week. This device inherits the form factor of the iPhone 8, has a 4.7-inch screen size, and inherits the Home button with Touch ID. It is predicted that the same A13 Bionic chip, 3GB of memory, and up to 256GB of storage will be installed in the same nostalgic body as the iPhone 11 series.
The expected price of iPhone SE2 starts at $ 399. Initially, "cheap and high-performance" was attracting expectations, but the new corona became widespread and it became essential to wear a mask,Face ID face authentication has a hard timeAt present, Touch ID that can perform fingerprint authentication is likely to gain popularity.
