New information keeps popping up about Apple’s new iPhone 12 models. Allegations have recently been made about a different strategy planned by Apple regarding the iPhone 12 release date. If the allegations reflect the truth, Apple appears to be implementing another iPhone 12 strategy directly against Samsung.
The iPhone 12 release date may be earlier in South Korea
According to new allegations from The Korea Herald, Apple is working on a new plan by directly taking Samsung as a competitor to mitigate the delay in the iPhone 12 release date this year. Accordingly, Apple may put the iPhone 12 5G model for sale in South Korea earlier than expected, so as not to leave the sale of high-end smartphones for 5G in South Korea to Samsung alone.
Last year, iPhone 11 models went on sale in South Korea on October 20. There was a delay of approximately 1 month in the date of the launch. As the iPhone 12 models will generally be delayed in 2020, it seems that the preferences of 5G-supported smartphones in South Korea will be mainly Samsung. Currently, Samsung’s usage rate in South Korea is more than 65 percent. On the other hand, it falls short of Apple’s level of 20 percent.
Apparently, Apple will also put the iPhone 12 5G model on sale in South Korea earlier than expected, with the effect of 5G-compatible devices this year, so as not to increase this rate further.
Finally, it is reported that Apple has plans for the release date of iPhone 12 on October 13, 2020. The date of October 23, 2020 is on the agenda as a release date. With this latest information, it has become a matter of curiosity whether sales in South Korea are on par with the United States.
Apparently Apple is working on a more effective strategy against Samsung in South Korea. New information will continue to appear in the coming days.
