Apple iPhone 12 series 2020 is slated to launch later this year. Formerly touted to launch in September as per its usual timeline, it has been pushed a few weeks ahead. According to the latest report by Cowen investment bank, the iPhone 12 series has been pushed to late-November concerning the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and the delay that its supply chain had to face due to lockdown and restrictions.
I know there have been many reports around its launch window such as not too early we learned that iPhone 12 series might launch in October. However, the latest update says it will be pushed two months ahead in the late-November. This is because of the restriction countries imposed in manufacturing in Taiwan, China, and other South Asian countries where Apple gets its components manufactured.
Moreover, Apple has reportedly reduced the prediction of unit production in Q2 2020 to 35 million units. This is a good 5% drop from last quarter (Q1 2020) and a 13% drop from the same quarter last year.

Talking about Apple iPhone 12 series, there are at least four models to be unveiled at the reportedly November launch event.

All the models will arrive with an OLED panel with varying screen sizes such as 5.4″, two 6.1″, and a 6.7″ iPhone 12.
There would be two groups i.e. entry-level and high-end iPhone 12 models. The entry-level models consisting of a 5.4″ and a 6.1″ would get 4GB of RAM and probably up to 512GB of storage while the high-end models consisting of a 6.1″ and 6.7″ will get 6GB of RAM and up to 512GB of internet storage.
