Apple’s next-generation iPhone models continue to look curious. For models introduced in September of each year, too many leaks occurred this year. The most interesting of these leaks, the new model family will be available in 5G supported versions. The new models will support both 6 GHz and mmWave 5G depending on version and region.
Four new iPhone models on the way
Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo manages to draw attention from time to time with ambitious forecasts. Kuo said in a recent statement that Apple will introduce four iPhone models with 5G support. For this, of course, he pointed to the second half of 2020.
Deliveries of the models, which will be available in the second half of the year, will begin in the third or fourth quarter of the year.
The allegations made by Kuo are actually somewhat different from what was said last week. A report released last week pointed out that Apple would introduce the mmWave iPhone models at the end of 2020 and put it up for sale in the early days of 2021.
Kuo announced that Apple will launch mmWave models in five markets, including the United States, Japan, Canada, Korea and the UK.
mmWave offers the high speed and low latency promised by 5G. However, the transmitted signal can be blocked by walls, trees and buildings. On the other hand, the 6 GHz 5G offers higher speeds than LTE +.
Apple, 2020 iPhone models will use the Qualcomm X55 5G modem.
When we look at Kuo’s forecasts, we see that he has a more accurate history than other analysts. However, Apple’s last-minute changes should not forget that everything can change.
