The ongoing era is a new generation of network technology. As networks start to launch 5G networks globally, phone makers are striving to introduce phones capable of accessing new systems. Apple has been broadly anticipated to begin a 5G-fit phone in the upcoming year. But a new report has arrived with new surprises. Reportedly, Apple’s all three smartphones, slated to hit the market in 2020, will support 5G. Before few weeks, Ming-Chi Kuo, an Apple analyst, had reported next year’s 5.4-inch and 6.7-inch iPhones would support 5G network technology. At the time, Mr. Kuo noted a third model, a cost-effective 6.1 inch iPhone XR would be compatible with LTE networks only.
Now the Apple analyst has rolled out another report. According to the newly-published research document, all three models will support the 5G network along with mmWave and sub-6GHz spectrum. Mr. Kuo says Apple has multiple facilities for building the 5G iPhone after buying Intel’s smartphone modem business. He notes the deal could result in a fall of cost of Android 5G phones. Although, the report arrives just a few days after Apple acquired the majority of Intel’s modem business under a million-dollar deal.
On the other hand, the Apple analyst highlights he hopes many Android phones will support the sub-6GHz version of 5G. It is a lower version of the network which doesn’t offer more speed. Notable, Mr. Kuo states Apple is seeking for a sub-6GHz 5G iPhone at an affordable price. So Apple might sell the upcoming 5G supporting iPhone models at higher rates for gaining more backup from mobile operators. It remains unclear whether the company has the resources to build all four iPhones at the same time. Whereas, even after buying Intel’s business, Apple seeks to use its Qualcomm agreement to supply 5G modems in 2020. Maybe the phone maker does not have the scale to fulfill its requirement in the upcoming year.
