Apple to Launch 6.1-inch iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro Ahead of 5.4-inch and 6.7-inch Models [Report]


Apple will reportedly release its next generation iPhones in two stages with the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 and the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro arriving first, according to a DigiTimes report. The company is expected to launch four new models this year including lower end 5.4-inch and 6.1-inch models and higher end 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch models.

The new iPhone lineup may arrive in two stages, with two 6.1-inch models in the first and another two 6.7- and 5.4-inch devices in the second, said the sources, noting that shipments of SLP mainboards for the 6.1-inch models were kicked off in July and those for the 6.7- and 5.4-inch ones began in the second half of August.

The site also notes that SLP (substrate-like PCB) suppliers have been ramping up shipments of boards for the next generation devices since July-August, despite reports that the new iPhones will debut later than normal.

Apple is rumored to be making an announcement tomorrow which could be the dates for a virtual event to unveil the new iPhone.
