Approximate prices in Bangladesh for these phones will be around BDT 70,990 , BDT 80,990, BDT 100,990, and BDT 1,70,000 for iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max respectively. 

Hands down these phones have been built with the newest and best technology that is available in the tech world. But considering the approximate price in Bangladesh, I will suggest to whoever wants to buy it, to do a little bit more research. This way, you can decide which model of these phones will meet your needs. iPhones can easily last up to 5-6 years minimum, so it will be an investment, if you buy the one that will fulfill all your mobile needs, rather than following the trend and buying the most hyped iPhone. Like for example, even though I think iPhone 12 Pro or iPhone 12 Pro Max will be the most hyped phone for 2020, if I decide to buy one I will go with iPhone 12 only because I can get the most usage out of it.
