Last week, analyst Ming Chi Kuo said Apple camera lens supplier genius electronic optical found a coating cracking problem with wide-angle camera lenses positioned on the low-end 5.4-inch and 6.1-inch iPhone 12 models. But Kuo said the issue is unlikely to affect the iPhone 12’s shipping schedule.
genius electronic optics has since refuted the report, insisting that its production is still in normal progress, there are no problems, and the order demand of customers is still normal.
in addition to genius, Apple also has Largan precision as a camera lens supplier for iPhone 12 models, so customers are unlikely to see any impact on the release date of the product in any case.
apple is widely expected to announce four iPhone 12 models this year, including a 5.4-inch model, two 6.1-inch models and a 6.7-inch model, all with OLED displays and 5g connectivity. While new iPhones usually start shipping at the end of September, apple recently said it could be available a few weeks later this year.
