2020 is already here – perfectly two months away, but the tech industry is all geared up for the goodies to come shortly.
Apple’s 2020 iPhones have been rumored to be the industry’s first to ship with a 5nm processor, probably A14 Bionic SoC. With 5G adoption already underway in various countries across the world, Apple’s upcoming iPhones will also support 5G.
For 5G connectivity, reports suggest that Apple will bet on Qualcomm’s X55 5G modem for that. This is the case even though the company has its 5G section that came after acquiring Intel’s 5G modem business for $1 billion in July.
Similar reports surfaced in Q2 2019 about Apple working on 5G iPhones for 2020. The upcoming iPhones will also receive a significant redesign since the 2017 flagship design change, according to Apple’s reliable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
Early next year, Apple is also preparing to launch a fresh iteration of the iPhone SE that will feature an identical design to the iPhone 8.
The iPhone SE 2 will ship with Apple’s current flagship A13 SoC, with the primary target of this successor being to lure iPhone 6 users into upgrading. The iPhone SE 2 will be priced cheaper, at around $399, which is a mouth-watering deal for iPhone 6 users out there. The Chinese tech company, Huawei, has also been rumored to be working on a new flagship chipset that will be fabricated using the 5nm technology.
