According to recent rumors, the launch of the iPhone 12 will be delayed until October or November due to supply constraints. And now, as noted by The Verge, Qualcomm may have confirmed that at least some models will not be available in September.
The chip maker, shared his report on third-quarter earnings and also some expectations for the next trimestre.Nel report, the company stated that its fourth-quarter projections could be affected by the ” delay of a global launch of a mobile flagship 5G “.
It is important to note that Qualcomm’s fourth quarter covers sales in July, August and September. If that wasn’t enough to confirm rumors of a delay in the launch of the iPhone 12, Qualcomm chief financial officer Akash Palkhiwala said that some of his 5G chips, ready to ship in September, have been postponed until the end of this year. .
Given the timing of release of other devices, Qualcomm is unlikely to refer to the launch of another smartphone, even if the company has not explicitly named Apple or the iPhone.
Apple is expected to announce four new iPhone models this year with 5G network support enabled by Qualcomm modems. These iPhones will include support for both 5G versions: sub-6 GHz 5G and mmWave 5G. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, recent reports say that iPhone 12 will be released in late October or early November.
In addition, leaker Jon Prosser, who correctly predicted the launch date of some Apple products this year, said on Twitter that the iPhone 12 and new iPad models will be unveiled in October.
