iPhone 12 prices leaked – What Jon Prosser didn’t tell you!

by birtanpublished on December 5, 2020

The iPhone 12 is coming out this year in 2020 and coming out in a bunch of different variants we've seen the pricing finally leaked and all the sizes that are coming out we've seen so many leaks from a homie John Prosser and I mean it's pretty amazing that they're gonna come out with some great phones with great specs including an OLED screen which is finally that thing we're getting the OLED screen on the low end of one of the iPhones unlike these last couple of years where the iPhone 10 are in the iPhone 11 have that LCD screens to keep the price down so the question is how in the world is Apple gonna make

The iPhone 12 so inexpensive the quoted prices right now are both under $750 how are they doing this well I'm gonna tell you everything that I know that John Prosser did not tell you about how that's being done right after this please welcome back and for all you new people welcome my name is Travis and I do tech videos every single week and have a blast doing them if that sounds like fun to you sit back relax and enjoy the video anything I talk about will be in the description below but for now let's just get into the video so I was

Talking to my homies John Prosser and Greg from Greg's gadgets and we were discussing the pricing the iPhone 12 and how it's interesting that such powerful phones with 5g OLED and all of the newest accoutrement we're gonna be so inexpensive now if you look at what samsung has done this year they kind of went the opposite direction and I've talked about it quite a few times this year house Samsung took a bet this year to put out all expensive phones now they couldn't have known that a global pandemic would come out and kind of ruin the economy for the first half of the

Year but regardless it still would have been the wrong move so many people are not looking to spend upwards of $1,400 for a smart phone there are so many incredible phones for a much lower price and for the last several years Apple has actually been taking steps to lower the prices of their base model phone it started back with the iPhone 10 are at 749 no one saw that coming and then last year the iPhone 11 at even less I mean no one saw that coming everyone thought it might just be 749 again but no Apple went down even more

Well Apple looks poised to do it again but this time with a phone with 5g and an OLED screen how are they doing this they have given away the cost savings of the LCD on the smaller version how are they saving money and not passing it along to us I can already hear it in the comments section well Samsung does it their phones are under $600 and they have OLED screens which is true the a series of Samsung phones do have OLED screens and they are under $400 on occasion but let's not forget they make the processors they go in those phones the Exynos as well as the OLED displays

Themselves and Apple buys OLED displays from Samsung so of course Samsung is not gonna cut them a deal why would they I mean for as much as they're not competitors since iOS vs. Android are very different things they kind of still are competitors so of course Samsung is not gonna cut them any kind of sweetheart deal knowing that Apple is always on their heels of taking over and dominating the smartphone sales across the entire world iPhones are sold more in America than any other smartphone so that's already

Got a clutch tightly on the North American market so with all of these different phones starting from 649 going all the way up to 1099 for the iPhone 12 pro max how are they doing this obviously the iPhone 12 pro and pro Macs have stayed the same price-wise so there's no surprise there but the fact that there's two lower priced iPhone 12s with OLED and 5g is a little confusing until you realize that the 814 processor that will be inside of the iPhone 12 is you know made by Apple so it's not like they're exactly having to negotiate with themselves exactly turns out that it

Doesn't look like Apple is actually getting their o LEDs from Samsung this time it's actually been a point of controversy over the last couple of years a lot of people have said that sometimes they get better OLED sometimes they don't you'll see people in the comment sections and on forums talking about how one OLED is better than the other the Samsung is better than the Apple and it's because Samsung is holding back some of their better o LEDs for their own phones and listen I don't know maybe that's true but it's not gonna be an issue for the iPhone 12 a

Little birdie told me something it appears this time Apple is going with a completely different vendor for their ohlet's BOE now if you don't know who BOE is let me give you a little bit of background about them back in 2018 BOE demonstrated a foldable and flexible OLED display so they're not exactly new to the game also they've made a deal with Qualcomm for in-display fingerprint sensors that's a little juicy whether or not that actually comes to future iPhones I don't know but Apple is dealing with BOE thus I mean it's it's out there not only this but obviously

Apple's leverage with BOE is a little bit different than it is with Samsung Apple will be selling tons of these phones over the course of years and if they're establishing a long-term relationship they can guarantee BOE a tremendous amount of money so quantity equals price cut and of course I'm sure BOE would love to beat Samsung at their own game so of course if you think about it this makes a lot of financial sense Apple gets to fill the holes in their lineup from the pricing perspective and the customers win

Now speaking of pricing let's take a look at what the lineup could look like typically when a new iPhone is released one of the previous generation sticks around and gets a price cut and if you look at the pricing structure that exists today you can make some assumptions the iPhone se right now is 399 now we would assume if the iPhone SC plus was out it would be maybe 450 something like that maybe 500 who knows but of course that gap would be four hundred five hundred now we're up to 649 for the 12 749 for the 12 six point one and then the pros at 999 and 1099 it

Does give us one other gap and that's the iPhone 11 I believe that thing can go down to either $4.99 or 550 somewhere in there because if you think about it 400 500 for the SE + if that comes out 550 maybe for the iPhone 11 and then you go down to the new iPhone 12 at 649 749 999 1099 and I just don't think there's gonna be anything at the $900 market just I mean there doesn't make any sense with all these phones out there right now I can't imagine what that would be and I do not see the 11pro sticking around the 11 on the other hand could be

Another budget option for people who don't want an se but don't want a 12 or 12 Pro now make no mistake Apple coming out with multiple phones goes against some things I've said in this channel before I don't like having too many choices I think sometimes there is a return on investment that ends somewhere at about two phones per per cycle of phone releases but you know listen data doesn't lie and Apple isn't gonna make phones they don't think are gonna sell so I'm gonna go with whatever their data is saying and here's the thing if they can offer a phone at pretty much every

Major price point that gives more entry points for people to come or stay in the Apple ecosystem when it's time for them to upgrade their existing phone or in some cases when people are just upset with their existing phone and are looking for something different if you give them different entry points into the ecosystem and then sell them on upgrades later or software or services it's kind of hard to argue but I'll definitely be talking more about this on my podcast with Greg from Greg's gadgets called gadget cast make sure you subscribe to that and check out the

Livestream we do every Sunday you can check out the link in the description below come join us talk about this tell us what you think is Apple doing the right thing having so many phones released this year like that's that's a lot like five phones for Apple that's a huge number that's going up every single year is that the smart move but if for no other reason that's gonna make their wallets fatter even if they don't sell every single one in a way that they would hope to they're still gonna sell a lot so it looks like Apple has figured out a great pricing

Strategy moving forward they now have more phones really than they ever have before across so many different pricing structures as well as performance all of the twelves are going to have the a14 processor which is gonna be ridiculous we know this we already know this and the camera capabilities are probably gonna be equally as mind-bending I've been using my iPhone 11 Pro max to do b-roll on my channel for the last month and a half and no one has really noticed it seems pretty much the same it's really incredible quality and if samsung is smart they will pay attention to this

And offer a lot more low priced phones in 2021 this year they really didn't at all while they did lower the price of the s10 series no you can get them in my Amazon renewed series for even less you might want to check that out I'll leave a link in the description below that's where I go to Amazon and buy some renewed phones been pretty cool you should probably watch those in the meantime let me know what you think about the iPhone 12 pricing and watch the video like I talked about peace and love
