Taiwan media: two 6.1-inch Apple iPhone 12 will be the first to debut
Apple plans to launch four new OLED iPhones of 5.4, 6.1 and 6.7 inches this year. There are rumors that the 6.7-inch and a 6.1-inch model will be high-end devices with triple cameras, while the 5.4-inch device and another 6.1-inch model will be more affordable new iPhones with dual cameras.

DigiTimes previously hinted that two 6.1-inch iPhone 12 models may debut in October, and then Apple will launch 6.7 and 5.4-inch models. The media reiterated this statement in a new report today.
“The source said that the new iPhone product line may appear in two stages, the first stage is two 6.1-inch models, the second stage is the other two: 6.7 and 5.4-inch devices , and pointed out that the 6.1-inch model SLP motherboard The production of the parts for the 6.7-inch and 5.4-inch models will start in July.”
Bloomberg previously reported that Apple will stagger the release time of its iPhone in 2020. However, it expects Apple to launch cheaper 5.4 and 6.1-inch devices first, followed by the more expensive 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch “Pro” models.
As for which release strategy Apple adopts, it is still a mystery.
