IPhone 12, delayed release: displays to blame

Coronavirus has halted production of displays, causing delays. The arrival of the iPhone 12 is expected to be a few weeks late

The iPhone 12 could be late, at least by a few weeks. The news does not come directly from Apple, but from Ross Young, display expert and always very informed about the market of the screens. Of the iPhone 12 now we know almost everything, thanks to rumors released in previous weeks by Jon Prosser. The new Apple phones will be four (two iPhone 12 and two iPhone 12 Pro) and will differ for the photographic sector (on the Pro version there will be the debut of the LiDAR sensor for augmented reality) and for the displays.

Although the size will be more or less similar, the screens that will mount iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro will be different. Sulla versione premium, infatti, ci sarà anche la tecnologia Pro Motion (presente anche sull’iPad Pro), che adatta in automatico il refresh rate dello schermo a seconda del contenuto visualizzato, passando da un minimo di 60 Hz a un massimo di 120 Hz. Conferme anche per le dimensioni dei dispositivi: l’iPhone 12 avrà un display da 5,4 pollici, mentre la versione Max da 6,1 pollici. Con l’iPhone 12 Pro si parte da 6,1 pollici e si arriva fino a 6,7 pollici per il modello Max.

Come sarà il display dell’iPhone 12 e dell’iPhone 12 Pro

Apple ha scelto due fornitori differenti per i display che verranno montati sull’iPhone 12 e sull’iPhone 12 Pro. Su tutti i modelli ci sarà uno schermo OLED, ma con caratteristiche differenti.

  • iPhone 12 – 5,4 pollici realizzato da Samsung
  • iPhone 12 Max – 6,1 pollici realizzato da LG/BOE
  • iPhone 12 Pro – 6,1 pollici realizzato da Samsung
  • iPhone 12 Pro Max – 6,7 pollici realizzato da Samsung.

The information provided by Ross Young should be quite safe, the only doubt concerns the iPhone 12 5.4-inch screen, which in the initial rumors was supposed to be produced by LG/BOE.

On the iPhone 12 Pro there should also be Pro Motion technology, which will allow to automatically adapt the refresh rate of the screen, going from 60 Hz to 120 Hz depending on the content displayed. For static images it will be lower and will increase for video games.

iPhone 12 delayed for displays

Due to the Coronavirus the iPhone 12 may arrive late. The production of the displays started six weeks late which will affect the official market launch. The presentation is set as usual for mid-September, but to see the new iPhone 12 on the market will have to wait until at least October.
