iPhone 12 News: Costlier than iPhone 11, LiDAR Scanner and Blue Color Variant

Rumors, Leaks, and News about the upcoming iPhone 12 are still coming in ahead of its launch next month. There has been a lot of news about the iPhone 12 series since it is going to be a notable upgrade from its predecessors with the Boxy Design, 5G Support, Better Displays, and more.

How much will the iPhone 12 cost?

The latest reports from a Tawainese brand Trendforce suggest that the upcoming iPhone 12 will be costlier than the iPhone 11 even though Apple will be ditching the Earphones and Charging Brick in the box.

The Rumored pricing of the Models is as follows,

iPhone 12: $699 – $749

iPhone 12 Max: $799 – $849

iPhone 12 Pro: $1,049 – $1,099

iPhone 12 Pro Max: $1,149 – $1,199

The reason behind the price hike might be the 5G compatibility with all the above models. If Apple decides to launch a 4G model of the devices, it would cost quite less comparatively.

Will the iPhone 12 include a LiDAR Scanner?

The LiDAR (light detection and ranging) Scanner was first shipped with the 2020 iPad Pro. It helps in significantly improving the Augmented Reality experience. The data collected from the scanner can help in making the eco-system tighter and better with the upcoming Apple Glass that would depend on the scanner.

Earlier, the rumors used to mention that the LiDAR Scanner would come with the Pro Models only, but according to a new report from DigiTimes, it is found that “some” iPhone 12 Models will also be including the scanner.

According to Max Weinbach and EverythingApplePro, the new navy-blue color is supposed to be made available for the Pro Models, which might replace the midnight-green option that was launched with the iPhone 11 Pro Models.

Digitimes has reported that this new color option might be available for the cheaper iPhone 12 as well.

“In addition to adding a dark blue model, for the first time, into the iPhone family products, Apple also brings a number of specification upgrades to new iPhones, including camera modules, displays and communications modules,”

It is a piece of great news for the people planning to buy the iPhone 12.

As always, take all the news as a grain of salt until Apple releases an official statement.
