Should you buy the iPhone 12 in Nepal?


While the iPhone 12 series is not yet official, the phone is bound to launch very soon in Nepal. This year, Apple really outdid itself by launching not two but four new iPhones at a single event. And of all the iPhones, the iPhon12 looked the most promising. The real question is- should you buy the iPhone 12 when it launches in Nepal? Let’s find out.

Let’s start with the specs of the iPhone 12:

  • 6.1-inch OLED display (Super Retina XDR OLED)
  • Apple A14 Bionic SoC
  • 64GB/128GB/256GB Internal Storage
  • 4GB of RAM
  • 12MP Wide Camera+ 12MP Ultra-wide camera+ 12MP telephoto camera
  • 4K Vdeo recording @ 60fps
  • 2815mAh battery
  • Fast 20W wired charging
  • Fast 15W wireless charging (via MagSafe)
  • IP68 Water-resistance (up to 6m for 30 minutes)

Specs-wise, the iPhone 12 looks really good. And it’s even better when you actually start using it. The only place where you will be disappointed with this Apple phone is its display screen refresh rate. Today, most $500 phones from screen refresh rate of 90Hz or 120Hz+. However, Apple has decided to stick with a 60Hz panel for all 2020 iPhones.


Apart from that, there’s really nothing that Apple has skimped on. You get a top-notch display, an excellent camera setup, a great build, and to top it all off, the new iPhone is priced really well too. Well, at least in the US.

Talking about the pricing, expect the new iPhone 12 to be priced at around Rs. 1 lakh. It’s not uncommon for Apple products to be over-priced in Nepal. So, we really won’t be too surprised if the phone is priced even higher. If priced well, the iPhone 12 should be the first iPhone to sell very well in Nepal.

If you live in Nepal and want a premium phone, getting Samsung phones is always your best option. It’s priced well for the most part and the pricing is mostly comparable to the western countries.

However, if the iPhone is the only phone you are willing to buy, the iPhone 12 is the phone that we recommend.
