The news about the "iPhone SE2" began to be clear last week, and industry analyst Guo Ming was in the last week's analysis reportForecastIPhone SE2 will be positioned close to the iPhone 8 currently on sale, still non-full screen plus glass fuselage rear cover design, the final design will also be close to the iPhone 8, rather than the rumored small size "full screen" machine.
In terms of internal configuration, Guo Mingyi said that "iPhone SE2" will use the same A13 bionic chip as the iPhone 11 series, with the memory combination of 3GB LPDDR4X 64/128GB, and the color will be traditional deep space gray, silver and red. In addition, 3D Touch modules removed on the iPhone 11 series will be difficult to appear on iPhone SE2.
Analysis released this weekPresentationIn China, Guo Mingyi continued to make forecasts for iPhone SE2, he said.The iPhone se2 will use LCP antennas to improve iPhone "transmission performance."LCP antenna suppliers, including Murata and Jialianyi, are expected to start shipping at the beginning of 1Q20.
LCP (liquid crystal polymer) is a kind of liquid crystal polymer, which is a high-performance special engineering plastic developed by DuPont company in the United States. It has excellent heat resistance and molding performance, while LCP material has smaller dielectric loss and conductor loss, and also has flexibility and sealing, so it has a good application prospect in manufacturing high-frequency devices. For example, LCP antenna mentioned in this paper.
In order to improve the high-frequency and high-speed performance of the antenna and reduce the space occupation, apple adopted the multi-layer LCP antenna on the iPhone X in 2017 for the first time, and continued to use it in new models in 2018. As for the future, LCP antenna is likely to be replaced by MPI antenna which is more affordable and has the same powerful performance in the near future due to the disadvantages of complex technology, low yield and high cost.
