Apple will release two 5G-ready iPhones in 2020, according to analyst

Insider claims Apple will launch 5.4-inch and 6.7-inch 5G iPhone models next year

Insider claims Apple will launch 5.4-inch and 6.7-inch 5G iPhone models next year

Meanwhile the 2019 iPhone lineup, which is expected this fall, will rely on Intel 4G modems, despite Intel's move to exit the modem business, as that decision came after the deal to provide the next iPhones with LTE support.

Kuo's note said Apple will release three OLED iPhones next year, backing up an earlier DigiTimes report. According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (via MacRumors), Apple is planning a trio of iPhones with 5.4-inch, 6.1-inch, and 6.7-inch screens, all with OLED displays similar to that of the iPhone XS. By 2022 or 2023, though, Apple should have its own 5G modem ready, which would reduce its reliance on Qualcomm (with which Apple recently reached a major settlement agreement). Thus, it will include the 6.5-inch and the 5.8-inch iPhone with OLED screen and the iPhone with a 6.1-inch LCD screen.

Mobile 5G internet is still a dream for most, but Apple could help make it a reality next year. But by 2020, perhaps the prospect of embedding a camera and the necessary sensors beneath the display will be less daunting.

Regardless, if Kuo's report is on point, the design of the 2020 iPhone models will be the most significant departure for the smartphone line since the iPhone X was introduced in 2017.

This means Apple will finally address the needs of the fans who've been clamoring for a smaller premium iPhone - the current iPhone XS has a 5.8-inch display and weighs almost 180g.
