Last updated on May 20th, 2020 at 05:20 amIt’s been three years since Apple modified the storage capacity of an entry-level iPhone. Recent rumors expect that 2020 will be the year when the Cupertino-based tech giant will update the base store space once again. Popular Apple leaker, Jon Prosser, claimed in his latest YouTube video that the entry-level storage capacity of the iPhone 12 will start at 128 GB. That’s double the amount of its predecessors the iPhone 11, XS, X and 8. More, he claims that the entire iPhone 12 lineup (4 models) will start with a base storage space of 128 gigs.
However, that’s a far stretch. Don’t get me wrong, the time for Apple to bump the base storage space of the new iPhones has come fore sure, but it’s hard to believe that the two lower-end, non-Pro models will benefit from the upgrade. Apple usually tries to capitalize on profits by up-selling customers for additional storage space. More, a recent tweet on an anonymous Twitter account but with a proven track record, comes to partially contradict Prosser’s leak and confirms the 128 GB base storage bump only for the iPhone 12 Pro lineup.
iPhone 12 Main Specs And Pricing (Leaks)
Combining all the leaks and credible rumors that we know until now, results in the following new iPhone lineup, that’s expected to be released in the fall of 2020:
- 5.4″ iPhone 12 (Model No. D52G), OLED, 5G, Double-Lens, $649 (64 GB)
- 6.1″ iPhone 12 (Model No. D53G), OLED, 5G, Double-Lens – $749 (64 GB)
- 6.1″ iPhone 12 Pro (Model No. D53P), OLED, 5G, Triple-Lens + LiDAR – $999 (128 GB)
- 6.7″ iPhone 12 Pro Max (Model No. D54P), OLED, 5G, Triple-Lens + LiDAR – $1,099 (128 GB)
Leak: The non-Pro iPhone 12 should come with 64, 128 and 256 GB storage options, while the premium flagships will include 128, 256, 512 GB of storage.
Fact: The last time when Apple increased the iPhone base storage was back in 2017, when the iPhone 8, 8 Plus and X got 64 GB instead of 32. One year before, the iPhone 7 had an entry-level storage capacity bump to 32 GB, compared to the previus 16GB packed by its predecessors the iPhone 5, 5S, 6, and 6S. While the iPhone 4S was sold with 8 GB of storage space!
The iPhone 12 lineup is expected this fall. Some reports claim that the COVID-19 pandemic might lead to a one-month delay, which means that we will see the new iPhones in October, instead of September.
