Never say never. Even though it previously appeared like Apple would not launch an iPhone using 5G support following year, fresh evidence makes the potential for a 5G iPhone in 2020 appear more likely.
That is due to Monday Intel declared its newest Intel XMM 8160 processor with 5G support. Intel claims that the 5G processor will have the ability to support peak rates which are”three to six times faster than the newest LTE modems available now.”
The Intel processor is meant to be accessible in the next half 2019, and Intel expects it to maintain commercially available products like telephones in ancient 2020. Intel says it pushed its launching date ahead by over six months to make this potential.
A huge reason that Apple was not expected to launch a 5G iPhone following year was a result of the belief that just Qualcomm could have a 5G chip prepared in time. And because Apple and Qualcomm are now involved with an continuing legal conflict , it appeared unlikely that Apple would use Qualcomm’s 5G chip.
Because Apple uses Intel’s processors in its own iPhones, also because Intel is going to have 5G chip prepared next year, it is possible the 2020 iPhone could encourage 5G.
5G is expected to become widespread following year, together with wireless carriers as well as other technology firms pushing for its adoption. This could cause a tide of 5G mobiles beginning next year.
