On November 13, Apple opened for sale the remaining two iPhone 12 models out of a total of four iPhone 12 models it announced, which are iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 12 mini. Before that, in late October, two models iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro were sold by Apple first.

iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 12 mini seem to stand at opposite extremes. If the iPhone 12 Pro Max owns an extremely large 6.7-inch screen, the iPhone 12 mini is one of the most compact phones today, even smaller than the iPhone 6 / 6s / 7 with a 4.7-inch screen. Also, if the iPhone 12 Pro Max is the most expensive iPhone model with a starting price of $ 1099, then the iPhone 12 mini is the cheapest iPhone 12 model for $ 699.
However, the contrast between the iPhone 12 Pro Max and the iPhone 12 mini is not only reflected in the size and price, but also the attraction in Vietnam.
As mentioned above, the iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 12 mini are both sold by Apple on November 13 in the first countries in the world. Although carrying the iPhone faces many obstacles, Vietnamese merchants can still bring the iPhone 12 Pro Max to Vietnam in the evening of the same day at a price of more than 50 million VND.

In some previous articles, we have talked about the iPhone 12 Pro Max notebook this year will have difficulty, when the original product is sold from November 27 at a much more stable price. However, it seems that it does not “discourage” the merchants in Vietnam, when the portable iPhone 12 Pro Max is still relatively widely available in some stores specializing in selling portable iPhone.
After two days of opening, it is not difficult to find and buy a portable iPhone 12 Pro Max. Of course, owning a machine early means users will have to spend more money. Specifically, the iPhone 12 Pro Max 128GB is priced at nearly 40 million dong on November 15, about 8 million higher than the listed price. The price is high, but according to our records, there are still many users willing to “hook up” to experience the most advanced model of Apple iPhone soon.
In contrast, the iPhone 12 mini proved to be completely inferior. Up to the time of the article (November 15), more than 2 days since Apple opened for sale, there has not been a mini iPhone 12 appearing in Vietnam. This is an unprecedented precedent, especially with a new iPhone model.
Low demand from the market is said to be the reason why the iPhone 12 mini is absent in Vietnam. Like many other Asian countries, Vietnamese users favor models with large screens. Therefore, models like the iPhone 12 mini are assessed as “dead from the eggs” in Vietnam.

In addition, according to a store owner asking for anonymity, the current entry price of the iPhone 12 mini is still too high. “The iPhone 12 mini has the advantage of being cheap, but with the current entry price, that advantage is no longer there, plus low market demand, we do not import the iPhone 12 mini. Users who want to buy the iPhone 12 mini really should Waiting for genuine products, because I think not many people dare to import this model to sell at the present time “, shop owner on share.
By November 27, all four iPhone 12 models, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max, will be sold for genuine. From now to that time, the price of iPhone 12 notebook is forecast to fluctuate strongly in a downward direction.
