- Apple’s iPhone 12 will come in a dark blue color scheme, according to a new report.
- Rumors of a navy blue iPhone 12 have been circulating for several months, and this report fuels the fire that Apple will add a new color to the iPhone series in 2020.
- The report also confirms that every iPhone 12 model will have Face ID and support 5G.
Due to the new coronavirus pandemic, Apple will break with tradition and miss the regular launch of the end of September for its new iPhone models. Apple chief financial officer Luca Maestri confirmed during a earnings call a month ago that the next iPhone would “be available a few weeks later”
According to a report from Digitimes, Apple will sell the first “dark blue” iPhone model this fall and add the colors of the rainbow that have appeared on the company’s flagship product over the years. The report also notes that the iPhone 12 will have a number of upgrades, “including camera modules, monitors and communication modules.”
This is not the first time a dark blue iPhone 12 has been suggested. Back in January, XDA developers Author Max Weinbach said he expected a navy blue iPhone 12 to replace the Midnight Green iPhone 11 Pro. Weinbach has been a trusted Apple leaker for quite some time, and he also predicted the arrival of a light green iPhone XR before it was announced. In other words, don’t be surprised to see a dark blue iPhone in October.
In addition to reinforcing rumors of a dark blue iPhone, has Digitimes The report also claims that Apple will ship between 63-68 million iPhone 12 devices this fall. That would be a decrease of 5 million units compared to the number of iPhone 11 devices Apple sent last year. Of course, with a delayed launch – like Digitimes think it could be four to six weeks – Apple will have a much shorter time to sell iPhones before the end of the year. Digitimes also points to another potential aid package from the US government as a factor for Apple’s iPhone 12 shipments.
The report also backs up claims about iPhone 12 design and specifications, and projects that each “will come with face ID functionality and support mmWave 5G technology,” and that the high-end model “will be equipped with a ToF camera and the wide-angle lens on the rear camera also comes with optical image stabilization functionality for sensor-shift. ”
In total, Apple is expected to release four iPhone 12 models this year: a 5.4-inch iPhone 12, a 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Plus, a 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro and a 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max. All four are expected to have OLED screens, but there are rumors that the Pro Max may have the same 120Hz refresh rate as the iPad Pro.
