iPhone 12 Pro with enhanced 5G may not arrive until 2021, according to report
Apple may delay the release of the iPhone 12 Pro until early 2021, according to a report that claims that mmWave 5G, which is up to ten times faster than LTE, won’t be available on the iPhone until next year.
According to the report from Susquehanna, Apple will release its predecessor to the iPhone 11 in 2020 with 5G support, although this model is expected to have an LCD display, compared to the OLED expected on the iPhone 12 Pro, as well as slower 5G cellular speeds compared to those expected to be offered by the high-end iPhone 12 Pro.
Based on supposed checks within Apple’s supply chain, analyst Mehdi Hosseini expects the iPhone 11 predecessor to include sub-6GHz technology and launch in September 2020 and mmWave models (iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max) to launch in December 2020 or January 2021.
The report goes against that from reliable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who has previously claimed all 5G-enabled iPhone models will launch in 2020.
