Ming-Chi Kuo, a famous analyst for almost everything about Apple, anticipates that the three iPhones released in 2020 will feature support for 5G. Remembering that this analyst is famous for getting it right many times, besides having access to exclusive leaks. In a leaked report for MacRumors, Kuo gives three reasons for his prediction.
First, he notes: “The Apple has more resources to develop the iPhone 5G after the acquisition of Intel's base band business. ”Second, he expects“ the prices of smartphones Android 5G drops to $ 249-349 in the second half of 2020. ”
Adding: “We believe that smartphones Android 5G, which will sell at $ 249-349, will only support frequencies below 6GHz.
“But the key is that consumers will think that 5G is the necessary function in the (second half of 2020). Therefore, iPhone models that will be sold at higher prices must support the 5G to gain more subsidies from mobile operators and consumers' purchase intent. "
Finally, he believes that boosting 5G development will boost the company's augmented reality ecosystem. Apple.
According to MacRumors, Kuo predicts that all three new iPhone models will support mmWave and sub-6GHz frequencies. Both are different frequency radio signal methods for providing data.
MmWave is delivered at frequencies between 24GHz and 90GHz, while sub-6GHz is self explanatory. An iPhone 5G that only supports frequencies below 6GHz is expected to cost less.
But as always, despite having a very reliable source, it's still just speculation and rumors. None of this has been officially confirmed and the Apple will not release information about it until the time comes.
But yes, if you bet, of course we will bet on the rumor. After all, Ming-chi Kuo is known for its accurate rumors. But reaffirming, we are not saying anything, this is just a rumor.
