This time, the analyst didn't come to bring any news about the 2019 lineup, but more interesting, he brought some interesting details about the 2020 iPhone lineup.
While the front camera would be upgraded from 7MP to 12MP, a triple-camera setup would be implemented in the 6.5-inch and 5.8-inch OLED iPhones, along with a new super-wide 12MP lens, according to Ming-Chi Kuo. The latter basically confirms all speculation pointing that the 2019 iPhone XR will be the last Apple smartphone to ship with a standard LCD display. While the smallest and largest phones will reportedly work with 5G networks, the medium-size iPhone will be 4G LTE-only, Kuo claims.
The biggest differentiator is going to be the inclusion 5G modems in the high-end 5.4-inch and 6.5-inch iPhone models. The 5.4-inch iPhone will be more compact than the current 5.8-inch iPhone XS.
Further reports indicate that all new iPhones will feature 5G in 2021, while Apple hopes to have its self-developed 5G modem ready as soon as 2022 - reducing its reliance on Qualcomm and Samsung. The 2020 iPhone 12 and 12 Max will support both sub-6GHz and mmWave technology.
Back when Apple was still planning on using Intel modems in its iPhones, it was rumored that the 2020 iPhones will be the first to get 5G support. But there are some things that will truly set 2020 iPhone lineup apart from all the iPhones launched till date along with the ones coming later this fall. The 2019 iPhone XS and XS Max will look nearly identical to the 2018 units with the exception of camera design and amount of sensor. The iPhone XR will retain its LCD display but will introduce a secondary camera sensor.
