Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to the era of 5G! The fifth generation of cellular network technology was introduced in late 2018. It got the whole world buzzing with excitement. The 5G network is expected to create IoT (Internet of Things) ecosystem. Moreover, it would increase the speed of the internet by 10,000 Mbps through the usage of shorter frequencies (millimeter waves between 30GHz and 300GHz). A lot of phones are now offering 5G connectivity including Samsung Galaxy S10 but not Apple. The company usually prefers using tried and tested technology to offer top-quality products to its consumers. However, things are about to change as there is some speculation that the brand will be releasing the Apple 5G iPhone in 2020. If they do launch, iPhone 5G Phone next year, then it will certainly shake things up.
Is It Really Happening?
It was previously stated by the Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo that two out of three iPhones coming in 2020 will offer 5G network. However, his statement has now been changed. This is because he believes that all of the upcoming iPhone models will be equipped with 5G chip. The reason is that the company recently purchased the Intel’s smartphone modem business. This would allow them to develop their own 5G modems. The Apple 5G iPhone will also be able to compete with other low-cost android mobiles.
Apple and Qualcomm
Although Apple has been working on its 5G chip, but that technology isn’t going to be ready by 2020. This is why they have partnered with Qualcomm who would assist the company in making modem chips. Furthermore, Kuo has revealed that he expects that the new iPhone 5G phone models coming in 2020 to offer both mmWave and Sub-6GHZ spectrum. However, it’s not clear as of yet if the company would launch, Apple 5G iPhone that only supports Sub-6GHZ.
Apple Does It Again!
Apart from all the rumors regarding the Apple 5G iPhone, let’s talk about how they upped the smartphone game by launching iPhone 11 Pro on September 20, 2019. It is the successor to the iPhone XR and includes many great features.
What’s In the Box?
Apple 5G iPhone is not scheduled to be released until 2020. However, if you purchase your iPhone 11 Pro then here’s what you can expect to find in the box.
Earpods with lightning connector
USB-C to lightning cable
18W USB-C Power Adapter
iPhone 11 Pro’s biggest selling point is its camera. It has three 12-MP rear cameras with f/2.4 ultra wide-angle lens and 2x optical zoom out, f/1.8 wide-angle lens and f/2.0 telephoto camera with 2x optical zoom out. You can make 4K videos with this smartphone. The camera also offers many interesting modes including, HDR, image stabilization and burst. It also supports a front camera of 12-MP with an aperture of f/2.2. Will the Apple 5G iPhone also feature 3 rear camera? Time will tell!
My Final Thoughts
I think 2020 is going to be a big year for Apple. Considering how they always strive to offer something new to their consumers, it wouldn’t be a surprise if they launch, iPhone 5G phone next year. Would you think it will be a good idea if the company introduces its Apple 5G iPhone in 2020? Let me know in the comment section.
