Apple will release two 5G-ready iPhones in 2020, according to analyst
New Apple 2020 iPhones We are in 2019, but the new iPhone expected in the coming months are practically gutted based on leaks. This year’s iPhone almost certainly will not have 5G connectivity, but the company would step on the accelerator over the next year, as predicted by the well-known and often successful analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
While at first it was thought that only two of the three iPhone models expected during 2020 would have 5G connectivity, the analyst now expects all iPhone to be 5G by having more resources thanks to the acquisition of Intel’s business and the Need to compete with cheap Android phones with 5G.
This is what the analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicts, which in the past has been right, although we must bear in mind that the predictions are predictions. These have been filtered from a note for investors filtered by MacRumors, which includes the following fragment (translated):
According to the report, all the 2020 iPhone would support both mmWave and the strip below 6 GHz and mmWave, as well as a possible version for China only with the sub-6 GHz band.
The prices of Android 5G phones are expected to be reduced to $ 249-349 in the second half of 2020. We believe that Android 5G phones sold in that price range will support only the spectrum below 6 GHz. The key is that consumers will believe that 5G is a necessary function during the second half of 2020. Therefore, iPhone models sold at a higher price must be compatible with 5G to earn more subsidies from mobile operators and the intention of consumer purchase.
Of course, during 2020 Apple would use Qualcomm modems, as its own advances in 5G connectivity are not expected to bear fruit until 2021, despite the recent acquisition of Intel’s smartphone modem business.
The rumors have given us other clues about what to expect from the 2020 iPhone. There would be three, all of them with OLED screen, with diagonal of 5.4, 6.1 and 6.7 inches. The notch would still be there, analysts wait for it for two more years.
