Apple to Launch 3 OLED and 1 LCD iPhones in 2020
July 22, 2019
Apple is expected to launch four iPhones with 2020, three with OLED displays, sizes 5.4-inch, 6.1-inch, and 6.7-inch. The devices will also have 5G connectivity and advanced 3D sensing camera technology, news portal GSMArena reported. The fourth iPhone is expected to feature an iPhone 8-like design and come without 5G connectivity or OLED panel, the report said. J.P. Morgan Chase expects sales of 195 million units in 2020, up from an estimated 180 million in 2019, Apple will also have its own 5G modem ready by 2022-23 which should reduce the iPhone-maker's dependence on Qualcomm, it added. The upcoming iPhone XR 2 is coming with Apple's A13 processor made with a second generation 7nm process that would increase battery performance, thus offering a longer battery life as compared to the iPhone XR. Ming-Chi Kuo said Apple is planning to upgrade the camera resolution and set-up in its 2019 line-up. The front camera would be upgraded from 7MP to 12MP, a triple-camera set-up would be installed in the 6.5-inch and 5.8-inch OLED iPhones, along with a new super-wide 12MP lens. All three Sep-2020 iPhones (5.4”/6.1”/6.7” screen sizes) will adopt OLED displays and 5G baseband modems (with support for mmWave frequencies), and at least two of the three models adopting world facing 3D Sensing (Time of Flight) driving industry leading AR/VR capabilities which can be leveraged by custom built applications (including games).
The increase in unit sales is expected to be for a number of reasons. Firstly, potential customers adore the newest features, and with 5G network support, rear-facing 3D sensing cameras, and more, things are expected to look great for Apple.
