Apple seems to have regained its self-confidence with the launch of the new iPhone 11. The company could end the year with an impressive 75 million iPhone 11 sold. These numbers have been an extra motivation for those of Cupertino, who are already thinking of repeating success with the 2020 models. A new report indicates that all iPhone 12s will be compatible with 5G networks, in addition to having screens whose refresh rate could range between 90 and 120Hz.
Early rumors pointed out that Apple would reserve 5G connectivity for the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max next year, leaving the iPhone 12 with current 4G network support. Now and possibly motivated by the good sales figures of the iPhone 11, all 2020 models would be compatible with the new high-speed networks. It was the Nikkei Asian Review, which claims to have this information thanks to the statements of four sources related to Apple.
With Qualcomm modem
Apparently, all the iPhone 12 of 2020 will integrate the Qualcomm 5G Snapdragon X55 modem, the most advanced 5G chip of the moment and that is present in some of the most powerful high-end mobile phones on the market, which have already opted for this technology. Behind this decision, in addition to the good sales of the iPhone 11, would be the upward forecast in the demand for 5G compatible devices, and the arrival of more commercial offers in 2020.
The fashion of the screen
But 5G is not the only technology with which Apple intends to improve next year’s models. In the most powerful Android phones of the second half of 2019, screen refresh technology is beginning to emerge as one of the most important attributes to consider. In this way, the iPhone 12 could incorporate a screen with a refresh rate of 120 Hz. As reported by Apple Insider, the current models, which have 60 Hz, would be replaced by panels whose rate would range between 90 and 120 Hz This technology allows a smoother and more fluid screen experience that is especially noticeable in internal browsing or in games with greater graphic demand.
Although it is still too early not to talk about mere speculation, the first rumors claim that the iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max will feature 5.4 and 6.7-inch screens, while the standard iPhone 12 would maintain the current 6.1-inch panel with OLED technology. Apple would keep the current square module for the rear camera, but the company would be considering the possibility of including a fourth ToF sensor in the case of more premium models. The terminals are also expected to arrive with the new A14 Bionic chip, which could be manufactured in a new 5 nm process.
