This iPhone 12 is entering production first of all four models

We now know which iPhone 12 model will likely be produced first. And there’s some bad news for folks planning on getting the entry-level versions of Apple’s next phone.

According to a report in Digitimes, volume production for the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 will start in July-August, which will be before the rest of the Apple’s lineup. The report says that that Apple’s iPhone 12 launch for all four models will likely still be in October instead of the usual September event.

The report also confirms a trade-off we’ve heard previously about the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Max. Apparently only the iPhone 12 Pro phones will offer both sub-6GHz and mmWave 5G, which enables the fastest speeds.

Meanwhile, the regular iPhone 12 models may only feature sub-6Hz 5G support. This means that you should enjoy faster speeds than LTE, but not the 1Gbps downloads offered by mmWave.

To be fair, mmWave has very limited range and requires line of sight to nearby 5G nodes. However, Verizon is doubling the number of cities that offer mmWave by the end of the year. And AT&T has also started to roll out mmWave 5G on its network.

Digitimes also says that all four iPhones will come with OLED displays, which we’ve heard previously. Samsung Display has reportedly landed 75% of the OLED panel orders, which includes those for the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 and the 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pros. LG Display and BOE are said to share the orders for the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Max.

The 5.4-inch and 6.7-inch flexible OLED panels will Samsung’s Y-OCTA Touch technology. That means those handsets won’t require “out-cell touch modules and laminating processes.” The 6.1-inch iPhone 12 models will apparently require out-cell touch modules, but that doesn’t mean the user experience will be any different.

Other than 5G support, there are other key differences between the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro models you should know. Based on previous reports, the iPhone 12 will likely feature two cameras (wide and ultra-wide), while the iPhone 12 Pro will get three cameras (wide, ultra-wide and telephoto) plus a LiDAR sensor. And only the iPhone 12 Pro is expected to offer a 120Hz ProMotion display for a smoother refresh rate.

The iPhone 12 is expected to start at $649 and the iPhone 12 Max $749, while the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max will be priced at $999 and $1,099, respectively. So, despite the trade-offs, we expect many shoppers to gravitate towards the more affordable entry-level iPhone 12s.

Wow, ¡qué gran experiencia tuve con ustedes! Pedí un iPhone de Brasil y estoy muy impresionado con el envío rápido, el producto en sí y el regalo Apple Watch que vino con él. Fue muy agradable ver un toque tan personalizado.

Not sure why there rating is so low on here. They always go above and beyond if there is an issue and I would say they are the best company to deal with online 5 star

I use Fone Zone for years now and never had any issues, I always found customer service very good. However this time everything changed. I ordered a little Samsung for my sons birthday specifically. Was waiting for over a week for it to be dispatched but noticed nothing was happening. I contacted Fone Zone to check up on it the day before it was due to arrive and they email me that my order was cancelled due to stock availability.
