Last week we saw interesting information indicating that the iPhone 12 would come without a charger, a move that would allow Apple, in principle, lower the price of your new flagship smartphone.
It makes sense, but we must bear in mind that this does not mean that the iPhone 12 will cost less money that the current generation, that is to say, does not imply that it will be cheaper than the iPhone 11. It only implies that Apple will be able to deduct from the price of the same the saving that supposes not including a charger.
How much will the iPhone 12 cost then? It is a question that many of us ask ourselves, but unfortunately it still does not have a definitive answer. The latest leaks suggest that this terminal will cost approximately $ 549 in its cheapest version with a 5.4-inch screen, and that the 6.1-inch model will cost $ 599. They are very good figures, maybe too much, since the iPhone 11 hit the market with a price of $ 699.
Apple is not one of those that lowers prices with the launch of its new generations, and the company iPhone SE 2020 is already on the market to cover the “economic” high-end band, so it is difficult to believe that the iPhone 12 could end up reaching the market with a lower price than the iPhone 11, an idea that some analysts, such as Jeff Pu, defend without hesitation.
iPhone 12: no charger and $ 50 more expensive than iPhone 11
That is, in essence, the idea that Jeff Pu has conveyed. The analyst is convinced that iPhone 12 will be priced at $ 749 In its most basic configuration, a fairly high price, especially considering that it will not bring significant changes at the level of design or specifications, beyond the introduction of the Apple A14 SoC, and that it will come without a charger and (in theory) without headphones.
Will consumers be willing to pay more money for a smartphone that does not include the charger? The average price of an iPhone charger in its 18-watt version is around 50 euros if we go to the official model (cable and adapter), so there is no doubt that for those who do not have such an accessory buying an iPhone 12 can end up being a problem, since to those 749 dollars they should add practically another 50 dollars.
By cons, those who come from an iPhone and who can reuse the charger from your previous model They will have it easier, but if they want to sell their old smartphone, they will find themselves having to offer it without a charger, or check out and buy a new one.
Frankly, I think the idea of not including a charger with the iPhone 12 would be a move in the wrong direction by Apple, and would be very damaging to the user. And you, Do you think it is a good idea to do without this accessory? The comments are yours.
