Last Tuesday, Apple presented its latest iPhone, number 12. As always, the apple company made an announcement with great fanfare. The expectation of brand users at the local level is immediate: after knowing “what does the team bring”, the question that follows is “how do I get it?” Of course, the dollarized price of telephones, which only enter the country through imports, and the difficulties to travel surely discouraged more than one.
Anyway, the model will arrive in Argentina.
At the local level, the new smartphone will not have to go through the electrical certification processes and that is one less step for import: it comes without a charger and even without headphones. Yes, Wi-Fi and other connections will have to be certified, for example. That may take about two months and that is why the main authorized distributors of the brand in the country, and even the telephone companies that want to sell it, could offer it for the end of the year holidays. There is nothing confirmed yet, but despite the economic context there is much expectation among the resellers of the manzanita.
“Apple always has local customers and this context can be favorable,” they explained from one of the companies.
How much will it cost?
The smartphone is sold in the US in configurations ranging from $ 729 to $ 1,299. At the local level, today one of the local distributors is calculating these prices in pesos for the main models:
– iPhone 12 Mini 64GB: $149.000
– iPhone 12 Mini 128GB: $159.999
– iPhone 12 64GB: 64GB: $169.000
– iPhone 12 64GB: 64GB: $199.000
– iPhone 12 PRO 128 GB: $209.000
– iPhone 12 PRO MAX 512 GB: $229.000
These values include internal taxes, which are paid at the time of importation (7.52%) and VAT of 21 percent.
Thus, depending on the price of the local dollar that is taken, the new model will be among the most expensive or among the cheapest in the world.
For example, the cheapest model of those mentioned above would cost about USD 1,100 at today’s “solidarity” price, but USD 871 if the free dollar is taken into account at 171 pesos. If the buyer asks for invoice A at the time of purchase, and discriminates the 21% VAT, the price would be similar, and even somewhat lower, than the same model in the US.
“If you are going to take the dollars to the United States or blue here to change them, you will get more or less the same. And here you could pay it in installments, depending on the seller and the time of the offer ”, they highlight from one of the distributors.
At the moment, the iPhone SE and various configurations of version 11 are sold locally. And there are also “older” offers, corresponding to editions 7 and 8 of the iconic Apple model. The latter can be obtained, in MacStation, for example, for about 50,000 pesos.
More equipment details
Apple’s new “tank” is the brand’s first 5G. It comes with a faster A14 processor and updated cameras, and they use sharper OLED screens, an improvement over last year’s cheaper LCD screens, Apple said. Apple said the new A14 Bionic processor is 50% faster than the A13 chip in the iPhone 11 line. It has a camera with improved low-light performance, faster apertures and upgrades for digital photography. The new phones also support a new magnetic version of wireless charging called MagSafe.
The front of the phones looks like last year’s iPhone 11, but the aluminum edges are now flat instead of curved. It supports 5G, a new wireless standard that can transmit data up to 10 times faster than current 4G LTE technology.
This year’s crop of new iPhones marks the first major redesign in three years, which could lead to further updates and new growth. Investors and analysts are also optimistic about sales in China, where 5G networks are more developed than in the US.
The 5G capabilities make phones theoretically capable of downloading data much faster, though that will mostly depend on wireless carriers updating their networks. Apple’s 5G launch comes more than a year after Samsung Electronics Co. and other rivals began selling phones that are compatible with the standard.
Apple said it tested 5G globally with 100 carriers. He added that the American models will support the fastest millimeter wave technology.
