According to analyst prospects, Apple is launching two new AirPods models. If it was correct, the Cupertino-based company could enter the market already by the end of 2019, and could potentially continue to release a second version in early 2020.
This information is presented in the latest survey to be published by A prominent analyst Ming-Chi Kuo and forecasts that Apple will launch two new versions of AirPods into mass production as we approach fourth quarter 2019 and enter early next year.
As part of this mass production process, Kuo has proposed that Luxshare, Goertek and Amkor will be Apple's most important suppliers of the new models. With Apple essentially only releasing the second-generation AirPods, this can come as a surprise to many consumers.
Kuo also believes that the two new versions of AirPods will be designed and priced to appeal to two different segments of the market. It is suggested that a version will be an iterative update on the generation of the second generation, and largely fall into line with what we already have from a price perspective.
However, the second version will be offered major changes and may have a "brand new form factor design" and come up with the price tag to deserve that change:
We expect Apple to likely launch two new ones AirPods models early in 4Q19. One is the all-new form factor design at a higher price. The other's outlook and price will be the same as today's model. A common internal design factor for these two new AirPods would be to leave the current "SMT + RFPCB" design and switch to adopt the SiP design instead of improving assembly rates, saving internal space and reducing costs.
The analyst seems extremely jubilant about the future of Apple's AirPods, suggesting that shipments can exceed 52 million mark in 2019 and go as high as 85 million units by 2020.
The latest AirPods for Beat the market with an optional wireless charging case and offer "Hi, Siri" support for hands-free voice assistance. If this report is accurate, it will be very interesting to see what radical new design and feature set Apple comes up with for a couple of truly wireless earphones that cost up to $ 200.00.
