2020 Apple iPhones will be 5G Ready, Ming-Chi Kuo confirms: Report
Starting this June, multiple reports were suggesting the much-anticipated iPhones of 2020. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has indicated that the iPhones in 2020 would be 5G enabled for the top tier models and were also reported to come with OLED screens — for all models. Later another report had revealed that next year iPhones would be 5G ready in addition to their new AR/VR gaming capabilities and they are supposedly featuring 3D ToF rear cameras as well. Not long ago, there was yet another report revealing on what 2020 iPhone would look like.
Amidst these reports, Apple had officially announced acquiring Intel smartphone business modems by the end of this year (Q4, 2019, to be precise). This had been after a recent settlement between Apple and another chipset maker Qualcomm. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has now further predicted that all three iPhones in 2020 would be coming with 5G capabilities. He had further suggested that Apple acquiring Intel smartphone modem business would be making the Cupertino tech giant make 5G enabled models much quicker than before. And, also with 5G becoming the new norm in 2020, as much as the cheaper Android phones in the second half of next year are also said to be 5G enabled as well.
Furthermore, Kuo states that these new 5G equipped iPhones will be supporting both mmWave and sub-6GHz bands; however, only the sub-6GHz spectrum model is expected in the Chinese markets — the global variant that is said to be released isn’t clear yet. Every iPhone in 2020 with 5G capabilities appears to be a significant move from Apple since the iPhones are going to be expensive nonetheless. Earlier reports have suggested there three new redesigned iPhones with OLED models for 2020 comprising of a 6.7-inch screen, 6.1-inch screen, and a smaller 5.4-inch model as well.
