The 5g version of the iPhone 12 costs 5499 yuan, too expensive? If 5g becomes 4G and the price is only 3850 yuan, will the price be too expensive?
recently, apple lab, a well-known foreign blogger, has disclosed that Apple will release an iPhone 12e with 5.4-inch and 6.1-inch versions, LCD plane, 4G LTE network support, 12 million rear dual camera, face ID, built-in 4G memory and equipped with A14 bionic chip. The 5.4-inch iPhone 12e costs $549 (3850 yuan), while the 6.1-inch iPhone starts at $649 (4552 yuan).
it is understood that some domestic media visited Apple’s Shanghai OEM factory. During the interview, it was found that the iPhone 12 being proofed by Changshuo factory was indeed divided into 4G and 5g versions. And some equipment manufacturers in the factory staff also confirmed to reporters: “Changshuo is producing 4G, 5g version of iPhone 12.”.
for apple, this year will be the most important “connecting link” year for apple. Therefore, it is generally believed that Apple will release four new iPhones this year. In addition to the first 5g version of the iPhone, Apple will also launch the 4G version of the iPhone 12, which is cheaper, further lowering the iPhone threshold.
although the domestic media are basically singing Down 4G mobile phones, according to the data of e-commerce platforms, the sales of iPhone 11 have never declined, and have been firmly occupying the top three positions. Take Jingdong as an example. Last November, when the iPhone 11 was launched, it directly won the first monthly sales of Jingdong; in April this year, iPhone 11 again won the first monthly sales; in Jingdong 618 activities, iPhone 11 also won the second place in sales. It is worth mentioning that this 4G iPhone has won the first sales volume of single product in China for seven consecutive months.
it turns out that there are still some people willing to buy 4G mobile phones after 2020, and there are not a few of them. Are these people really stupid?
in fact, we can think about it carefully. Although the era of 5g has arrived, China is still in the early stage of development, and some foreign countries have just begun to understand 5g network, and there is still a long time to go before line G.
the reason why “5g” is so popular in China is that some media propaganda has gone too far. As a matter of fact, everyone says 5g has come, but what does line g really play an important role?
there are three main reasons why 5g mobile phones are not mature. First, 5g base stations are still under construction, and most areas have not covered 5g networks; second, 5g package charges are too expensive, which is not cost-effective for most consumers; third, the power consumption of 5g mobile phones has not been really solved, and the mobile phone service life has been greatly reduced. So for now, 5g products are more of a marketing gimmick. Many domestic mobile phone brands have increased their prices because of “5g”, and some flagship models are 500 to 2000 yuan more expensive than before.
by comparison, apple is as steady as ever. Not only did it launch 4G iPhone last year, but also only launched 4G iPhone Se in March this year. So it’s not so hard to understand that Apple plans to launch a 4G version of the iPhone this fall.
