16 October 2020
In the past Appleā€™s new phones have been kept well under wraps, but this year we knew more than ever before.

This is why I buy a Huawei, cost, cost & more cost... :I

Also honor is nice IMHO!

I still laugh at those stupid concept makers who believe apple will release quad camera setup...Triple camera layout was accepted happily by all users and Apple knew this triple camera is unique layout for iphone.

Second, some indians and faku youtubers believe apple is going to put both 5g and 120hz for them)))

Atleast I would be happy with that

I think they want everyone to use apple pay instead of debit or credit cards because the phone will damage everything that is close to its magnet.

Apple have a few choices, incentives, persuasion, or monetary.. So i guess they go for $$. Win for their pockets, win for the earth (sorta)..

Greed has no limits for this company. I can't imagine the lengths they will go to extract as much as possible money from people while making excuses such as the battery or the environment or whatever. Below the earth is a very special place reserved for the people running this company

GSMArena also reported at one point about the notch being removed, 120 Hz display, etc...

Duck of death, 16 Oct 2020You underestimated how maniacally greedy Apple is, as they ... moreYour are very right indeed. "We're going to be carbon neutral by reducing packaging and accessories". Yet, they're just making you buy it separately in the end, whether be the power brick (as most people won't have one with a USB-C entry plug anyway) or the Magsafe - because novelty. "This means we can ship 70% more phones on a pallet". Of course, that's how you maximize profits, by operation costs.

Joke's on them, at least in France anyway. By law, they're forced to sell wired earpieces so I'm curious as to see how they'll pull that one off.

This gaming thing is expected from a smartphone that cost such a high amount.

The rumours about not including charger and earphones in the box were correct too.

jamalu96, 16 Oct 2020What about the display panel? There were leaks showing 120... moreGiven A14 destroys SD865 benchmarks. And S20 have 120 / 240 touch sense. I don't see why iPhone 12 cannot gain 120hz technically speaking.

But based on the rumours, its the lack of supply that remove the 120hz refresh rate. But given the wave of iOS new game titles.. like Genshin Impact, V4 or even Black Desert..

I do not think A14 is strong enough to push consistent 120hz like how A12z can.. on new titles at native frame rates. (But i think genshin impact is not a good comparison.. they max 60fps for even the PC mode)

As of now.. 120hz is same with 5G, relatively new tech, limited apps / not enough cell towers etc etc. Unfortunately, the world follows Apple.. until 120hz iPhone is released, there will be a lack of 120 hz gaming.

Even the garbage collectors and other blue collared workers can afford an iPhone here in Europe.

Other manufacturers which aren't as rich as Apple aren't cutting corners by removing chargers.
Why can't a trillion dollar company ship a 20$ charger inside the box?

What is with all of you and usb c and stuff.

If you can Afford the newest and the most expensive phone on the market than you can buy a cable for it or a charger.

Would it be better that it comes with a phone , yes , but everyone is cutting corners because of corona

Only dissapointed by omission of USB-C port, notch size and camera placement, and the lack of 120Hz in Pro model. The price in the regular 12 also went up. Otherwise it's looking good enough. Hope Apple compensates with great photography.
