Now what Apple has officially introduced us to all of its iPhone 12 We started counting the days until its official launch to evaluate its economic impact on the market. And according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, such impact will be significant since he estimates that the Apple iPhone 12 would surpass the iPhone 11 in pre-sales by more than double the number of orders.
Contrary to what we could deduce from the sales behavior of the previous two years, the most popular iPhone 12 would not be, for Ming-Chi Kuo, the cheapest but the second most accessible. In fact, for the Chinese analyst the iPhone 12 Mini would be the least popular of all, followed by the iPhone 12 Pro Max.
For Ming-Chi Kuo the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro will be the most popular
In his recent report, Ming-Chi Kuo spoke of a number of pre-sale orders of between 1.7 to 2 million during the first 24 hours of availability of the iPhone 12. That is, to take perspective of his estimates, more than double the amount. that the iPhone 11 received because in that case we saw orders of between 500 to 800 thousand.
In addition, it is believed that the iPhone 12 Pro would be as popular as the standard iPhone 12, if not a little less. The pre-sale orders for the iPhone 12 would be distributed approximately between 10 and 15% for the iPhone 12 Mini, between 30 and 35% for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro and between 15 and 20% for the iPhone 12 Pro Max.
Why isn’t the most popular iPhone the cheapest this year? In the words of Ming-Chi Kuo this is because the iPhone 12 Mini does not have dual SIM card support, one of the most popular and required hardware features for smartphones in China. And that would significantly reduce your units ordered in pre-sale.
The fact is that the Apple iPhone 12 would surpass the iPhone 11 in presales reaching such remarkable figures that Ming-Chi Kuo speaks of another “super cycle” of sales comparable to those of the iPhone 6 which, in its moment, knew how to amass an impressive amount of pre-sales: 4 million units.
Of course, the figures are not the same but, comparatively, compared to recent generations, the iPhone 12 would be the iPhone that Apple has been waiting for years.
