How much do you think this model will be when the new mini models get released? Possibly as low as $399 ? Or less?

That A12B chip is a bit dated. I can't help but think, if a new model came out, that it could be much more than say around MSRP $599 at the most. It's Apple so your guess is as good as mine.

The A12 is still a good chip and fast today. I wouldn't consider the A12 slow or outdated by any means compared to the competition IMO.

A12 single core still outperforms SD865 with ease, about 25% faster and has much more effective heat control. Single core performance and heat control are the most important factors for smartphone gaming.

They say a new one is about to fall every year and it doesn't come out.

OR it does come out, nobody on here wants to buy it at MSRP, and then around the summer everyone goes "a new one is coming out…." OR "black friiiiiday"
