Qualcomm has hinted that Apple’s iPhone 12 models could be launched after September due to an impact caused by the global health crisis COVID-19.
Qualcomm’s CFO Akash Palkhiwala said in a statement:
“We’re seeing a partial impact from the delay of a flagship phone launch. And so what we’ve seen is a slight delay that pushes some of the units out from the September quarter to the December quarter for us.” Source: Reuters
In the report, Qualcomm didn’t specifically mention Apple during the report, though it is highly unlikely Qualcomm was referring to another company as Apple is known for the unveiling and releasing their devices in September.
It is unknown if Apple will unveil the new devices in September with a release to follow similar to the 2018 iPhones where the devices were unveiled in September with the two high-end models launching in September and the iPhone XR later in October.
We are expecting four new iPhones to be unveiled later this year with 5.4, 6.1 and 6.7-inch sizes with 5G.
