Wait for 5G

Wait for 5G

We've seen several 5G-powered Android devices launch in 2019, but iPhone owners will have to wait another year for the same capabilities. 

As we push into 2019, 5G service is starting up in the United States and other regions around the world. 

Samsung, one of Apple's fiercest competitors, has released a 5G version of the Galaxy S10 and it's available on Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile. It features an array of high-end specifications. The company's also released a 5G-powered Galaxy Note 10

Apple was slow to adopt 4G LTE and the company is behind the curve when it comes to 5G. 

Barring a huge change in direction, it looks like the company's first 5G iPhone will arrive in late 2010, long after its rivals. 

Now that Intel has killed its 5G plans for phones it looks like Apple will depend on some old friends for its 5G modems. 

A report from Nikkei claims that Apple plans to use Qualcomm chips for its 5G iPhone in 2020. The company has reportedly been testing the chips well ahead of the launch.

A separate report from Nikkei claims the 2020 iPhone models will feature a 5G modem chip from Qualcomm called the X55. The X55 can theoretically reach 7Gb/s download speeds and 3Gb/s upload speeds.

A report from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggests that Apple will also use Samsung to supply modems in select markets. 

With Samsung and Qualcomm now on board, it looks like Apple will be ready to deliver a 5G-ready phone in 2020. 

A report from Barclays analyst Blayne Curtis suggests that the 2020 iPhones will indeed be the first iPhones with support for 5G. 

JP Morgan analyst Samik Chatterjee has the same train of thought. So does Kuo who now believes all three 2020 iPhone models will come with support for 5G.  

Kuo previously stated that only two of Apple's 2020 iPhone models (the 5.4-inch and 6.7-inch models) would feature 5G while the 6.1-inch model would be limited to LTE. 

Wedbush Apple analyst Dan Ives also believes Apple will release 5G-powered iPhone models next year and Apple chipmaker TSMC sees a huge boost coming in 2020 thanks to the growth of 5G. 

Bloomberg's Mark Gurman also states that next year's iPhones will come with 5G support. He reiterates this claim in a separate report.

So while not confirmed, it's extremely likely that next year's models will be the first iPhones with the feature on board.

If your current phone is still performing well and you're intrigued by 5G data speeds, you might want to sit this year out and wait for the next batch of iPhones.

    I guess there are more reasons to wait than to buy. Having patience, we can think more of what phone we really need and manufacturers add more features than the older ones. https://www.arlingtonplumbingservice.com/
