Earlier today we’ve got a leak about Apple’s planning to introduce a new member to the family of iPhone 12, which might be named the iPhone 12 Mini. The pricing of this device we can expect around the US $500, making it an ideal entry-level iPhone.
Now the main question stands on the chipset. Because, if it will have quite a mid-range pricing (in the case of iPhones), then the company has to scale down something to make a profit from it.
So, there is a rumor in the market that Apple seems to use a scaled-down version of the A14 Bionic on the iPhone 12 Mini. In place of the A14 Bionic chip, sources have told that Apple is working on a mid-range chip (tentatively) called the B14.
This B14 chipset is expected to make its debut alongside the iPhone 12 Mini and future iPhone SE devices. This upcoming chip is expected to get its focus on efficiency rather than raw power. The Geekbench score suggests that the toned-down B14 chip is like a double-edged sword.
In the case of Apple iPhone SE 2020, the company has used the A13 Bionic chip on that device with a price tag of US$400. People actually very much liked this iPhone SE 2020 and it is one of the most sold iPhones in 2020. So, cheaper Apple phones will be universally welcomed by fans and enthusiasts alike. The iPhone 12 Mini will definitely let Apple make headway into the hypercompetitive mid-range smartphone market.
