Ming Chi Kuo are back with their (almost always) accurate predictions, this time focused on the iPhones that will be released in 2020.
TF International Securities analyst said today in a note to investors that Apple is planning next year for new models of 5.4 and 6.7 inchesboth with connectivity 5G, and one of 6.1 inches with 4G (LTE). They would all have screens of OLED.
Basically we're probably talking about the models that come after the successors of the XS, XS Max and XR iPhones, which will be released this year. That is, Apple in 2020 can change the sizes of their models. flagships, making the variation between them much more significant (the current ones are 5.8 and 6.5 inches, remember).
It is natural to imagine that the future handset which takes the place of the current XR will not be equipped with 5G, but it would finally gain an OLED screen one of the main differentials between the current lines.
The expectation that Apple will adopt 5G technology next year is entirely within the industry's expectations, especially after the mid-April deal with Qualcomm. Also according to Kuo, the design of a proprietary modem from Ma is now expected to be completed by 2022 or 2023 only.
While by 2019 not many exterior changes are expected on iPhones (apart from the square cutout for cameras, as we have seen quite a while ago), it is quite possible that the 2020 generation with 5G will also come as a new design concept.
