IPhone XR successor expected to adopt 4 × 4 MIMO antennas faster

A few months ago, we talked about how the iPhone XS easily outperformed iPhone XR in terms of connection performance 4G / LTE all because of a component present in the most expensive device that was left out of its more “modest” brother. Well, buyers of future iPhones can breathe a sigh of relief: it seems that this qualitative difference will be eliminated in 2019.

In a note to investors, Barclays analysts said that the successor of the iPhone XR adopt antenna design MIMO 4 × 4, present in the XS and XS Max iPhones but which was left out of the multicolored device launched last year on it, the antennas are MIMO 2 × 2 type.

Practically speaking, the change will make the future handset have a design with four antennas spread over its body, favoring signal reception in unstable coverage areas and offering devices even higher connection speeds depending, of course, on the band to which it is connected. , signal quality in the area and network congestion.

Adding this information to the rumor that the 2019 iPhones will already support the new Wi-Fi 6 protocol, it can be said that the devices will be very well-served in terms of connectivity.

Qualcomm still on the move for 2020

Going a little beyond time, another note published today by Barclays analysts brings another plot twist increasingly rocambolesca relationship between Apple and Qualcomm. According to them, Ma would be "dissatisfied" with the progress of Intel's 5G modems, supposedly intended for the 2020 iPhones, and could turn to Qualcomm to provide parts for future devices.

Obviously no one would publish such information without the least bit of evidence, but it's hard to believe: just see that Qualcomm itself refused to provide components for the XS / XS Max / XR iPhones and that Apple considered partnerships with Samsung as well. and MediaTek for 5G modems. That is, the relationship between companies at the moment basically null.

The Barclays note, however, cites that a possible deal between Apple and Qualcomm to provide modems by 2020 could be a good catalyst for peace between the two companies. In fact, it would be good news for everyone: Qualcomm, after all, has a huge advantage in developing solutions for the 5G connection and Apple, even with the recent issues, still one of the top selling companies in the world.

Will we have positive news soon?
