Apple will release four new iPhone models in fall 2020 with 5G and OLED displays, according to JPMorgan analyst Samik Chatterjee (via CNBC).
The report claims Apple will release a 5.4-inch iPhone, two 6.1-inch iPhones, and one 6.7-inch iPhone, in addition to a fifth low-cost iPhone expected to debut in early 2020 dubbed the “iPhone SE 2” which will supposedly feature a design similar to the iPhone 8, featuring a 4.7-inch LCD display with a Touch ID home button.
Chatterjee claims Apple’s two high-end 2020 iPhone models will include new rear camera technology with “world-facing” 3D sensing for improved augmented reality capabilities, while the others will use a dual-lens setups similar to the iPhone 11.
The 2H20 lineup will include all OLED phones, with screen sizes of 5.4″ (one model), 6.1″ (two), and 6.7″ (one), broadening the screen size range from 5.8″ to 6.5″ in 2019. We expect the two higher end models (one 6.1″, one 6.7″) to include mmWave support, triple camera and World facing 3D sensing, while the lower-end models (one 6.1″, one 5.4″) will include support for only sub-6 GHz and dual camera (no World-facing 3D sensing).
Another difference to separate the high-end and low-end models will be their 5G connectivity, claims Chatterjee. The two higher-end iPhones could offer support for the fastest 5G technology, mmWave, while the two lower-end iPhones may be limited to the sub-6GHz spectrum, which is not as speedy but has a wider range.
We recommend taking this report with a pinch of salt, although it is interesting to see reports surrounding next year’s device.
