As networks begin to roll out 5G networks around the world, phone manufacturers are starting to roll out phones that will be able to access them. Apple has been widely expected to roll out a 5G-capable phone by 2020, and now a new report suggests that all three of the company's phones will support 5G.
Last month, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo noted that next year's 5.4-inch and 6.7-inch iPhone model would support 5G, while a third, a cheaper 6.1-inch iPhone XR successor would only access LTE networks. Kuo has now released a new report, and MacRumors states that he has revised this prediction: All three iPhone models will support 5G. He notes that "Apple has more resources to develop the 5G iPhone after the acquisition of Intel baseband business," and that the price of Android 5G phones will fall.
While the report comes just days after Apple announced that it had acquired a "majority" of Intel's $ 1
Kuo notes that he expects most Android phones to support the sub-6GHz version of 5G, but not the mmWave version, which offers more speed. "The key is that consumers will believe that 5G is the necessary feature of 2H20," he writes. Therefore, iPhone models that will be sold at higher prices must support 5G to win more subsidies from mobile operators and consumer buying intent. variety of 5G networks and that they will pay a little more for it.
