Information published by ET News tends to prove what were previously only rumors. Samsung and LG are both working on the development of 5.4, 6.1, and 6.7 inch OLED tiles for the 2020 iPhone.
It’s a rumor that’s been in the air for several months now. In all likelihood, Apple will not only have to make a significant redesign of its iPhone next year but also offer them in different screen diagonals from today.
Regarding the integration of a 5G chip into the 2020 iPhone, rumors are spreading all over the place. While Ming-Chi Kuo is convinced that Apple’s entire 2020 line-up will support all 5G tapes, ET News believes that the company will opt for a fourth smartphone in the catalog, which alone will be 5G compatible.
On the one hand, the massive integration of 5G chips in its new iPhone would undoubtedly allow Apple to justify a new price increase on its phones. But the 5G is only launched in a limited number of countries. It is estimated that 65% of the world’s population will be covered in 2025. Apple could be accused of taking hostage customers who do not care about 5G with a more expensive smartphone, and whose capacities they will not be able to use to the full.
But the opposite is also correct. Taking the lead and making the complete transition to 5G, starting in the fall of 2020, would allow Apple to play the chorus of sustainability, and sell entire shipments of iPhone “5G Ready” under the pretext that we must prepare for the arrival of tomorrow’s network.
All iPhones screens moving to OLED technology
We are talking about OLED screens here. Until then, Apple had reserved this type of screen for its most expensive models (iPhone X, XS, 11 Pro). But according to ET News, the entire iPhone 2020 line-up will be missing on the LCD. Including the successor to the more affordable iPhone 11.
Then, the size of these screens changes profoundly compared to the latest generations of iPhone. Currently (and for two years now), Apple offers 5.8-inch smartphones (iPhone X, XS, 11 Pro), 6.1-inch (iPhone XR, 11) and 6.5-inch (iPhone XS Max, 11 Pro Max). ET News confirms two things today: a more compact iPhone is in the boxes, and a huge model should take over from the current iPhone 11 Pro Max.
And all this without even taking into account the possible iPhone SE 2, which he thinks could be launched next March.
