Like every year, when Apple has not set a date for the launch of the new generation iPhone, the market has started bustling with selling “fake” versions at super cheap prices.
Recently, a few mobile retail stores in Ho Chi Minh City and the iPhone Portable Association in China and Taiwan have sold the iPhone 12 Pro Max gold gold, green, black, white, running iOS 13.5.1 with the price. 2.8 – 5.6 million (depending on the volume).
They are designed to be quite similar to what is rumored in the official version such as the glass back with up to 4 cameras, the logo “Apple Defect” placed in the middle of the device. It also has a “rabbit ears” screen, even according to the ad and is advertised that can scan Face ID.
However, if you look closely, you can see that these iPhone models have a plastic back, rather than the metal case and glass back often found in high-end phones like the iPhone. And with the price as cheap as a popular smartphone, everyone understands this is a counterfeit version.
The fake iPhone 12 is based on rumors about an iPhone 12.
The most noticeable detail is the 4-camera cluster designed with the fake version.
The price of iPhone 12 “clones” is super cheap, only from 2.7 million.
The iPhone 12 is probably the most anticipated smartphone in the second half of this year. There are rumors that Apple will release four models this year, including the 5.4-inch iPhone 12, 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Max, 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro and 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max.
In particular, the iPhone 12 Pro duo is the high-end device as well as more expensive. The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Max will come with a more affordable price, similar to the current iPhone 11. These new iPhones are expected to undergo major changes in design, features and performance.
Traditionally, Apple usually launched super products in September, however, with the situation of Covid-19 epidemic taking place in many countries, along with the iPhone production in India was delayed, so many credits map of “Apple defective” is quite worried that the time limit for smartphone launch may be set back.
Before the time of the new iPhone, usually the predecessor iPhone will have price fluctuations in a short time. However, in recent months, the iPhone market has continuously reduced prices with quite attractive rates for iPhone XS, iPhone 11, or older but still popular models such as iPhone 7 / 7plus and iPhone. 8.
Genuine iPhones and notebooks have been on the decline recently.
Currently, the genuine iPhone XS is being reduced more than 4 million, to 20.5 million. New iPhone XS is being sold for VND 14.5 million, while used goods cost from VND 11.3 million for the 64GB version. iPhone X price is only VND 1-2 million compared to used iPhone XS. iPhone 11 dropped VND 2.9 million to VND 17.6 million 64GB version.
Although each store or distributor has its own policy of price and deployment in different stages, it can not be denied that the past 2 months the price of Apple products is quite attractive, more accessible to buyers. Therefore, many people expect, when the iPhone 12 is released, there may be a time to reduce the price of its predecessors to a deeper level.
