The iPhone is set to get even bigger in 2020.
Apple reportedly plans to release two phones with 5G in 2020, one of which will pack a 6.7-inch OLED screen, according to one of the most reliable Apple analysts.
Ming Chi-Kuo sent a note to investors claiming Apple will put out three different iPhone models in 2020. The 2020 iPhone XR equivalent will be upgraded to a 6.1-inch OLED display but it won’t get 5G. The 2020 iPhone XS Max successor will be upgraded from a 6.5-inch display to a slightly larger 6.7-inch screen.
While one iPhone will get bigger, the 2020 iPhone XS successor will have a 5.45-inch screen, a slight downgrade from the current 5.8-inch display currently in use. It will also have 5G.
Qualcomm is reportedly in line to provide the 5G modems on the 2020 iPhones. Broadcom will provide RF power amplifiers. Kuo reports that Apple’s in-house 5G modem will be ready for use by 2022 or 2023, allowing Apple to reduce its dependence on Qualcomm.
The 2019 iPhone lineup is expected to contain few outward upgrades, other than the square camera array in the back. Internal improvements will likely be the biggest focus this year. It’s unclear if Apple will make significant design changes to the 2020 iPhone lineup.
