There are rumors that Apple could offer its first 5G phone by 2020, but it was once thought that it could use Intel's radio chip, so it was later clear that this would not happen.
Apple, in fact, joined with Qualcomm to force Intel to stop producing its 5G modems.
It has its price, so Apple agreed to settle all its disagreements and complaints against Qualcom and spend at least $ 4.5 million to ensure the collaboration of a company that makes chips, all for the good of the iPhone.
Kuo claims that the iPhone 5G is on schedule and that the smaller 5.4-inch and 6.7-inch iPhone with support for the 5G network will arrive in 2020. This could mean that the XS will decline further and the Max model will increase further.
One of the three models of the iPhone will be cheaper – the successor to 6.1 inches of the iPhone XR, which will remain in LTE support. It will be available in "live" colors and will use an OLED display, while the current XR uses a cheaper LCD panel. That means that every iPhone model in 2020 will have an OLED display.
Kuo expects all models to support the 5G network by 2021. Apple has a chance to switch from Qualcomm to its own modems in 2022 or 2023.
