Guo Mingyu, an analyst at Tianfeng international securities, has come to predict the new iPhone again, which is quite rich this time. According to him, Apple will release up to five iPhones next year, including a long-awaited small screen flagship and four 5g models.
According to Guo Mingfu,Apple will launch the iPhone se 2 in the first half of next year (around March in spring), with a 4.7-inch LCD screen, basically the same design as the iPhone 8, with only 4G support.
In the second half of next year (autumn September as usual), Apple will launch four new iPhones at one go. The appearance will return to the classic iPhone 4 style, unify the OLED screen, and all of them will be equipped with Qualcomm snapdragon x55 5g baseband, which is exactly the same as the partner of snapdragon 865.
The main differences between the four iPhones are screen size and rear camera specifications, including:5.4-inch rear dual, 6.1-inch rear dual, 6.1-inch rear triple and TOF lenses, 6.7-inch rear triple and TOF lenses.
Qualcomm snapdragon x55 is a global 5g baseband, which supports the band below 6GHz and millimeter wave, NSA / SA, TDD / FDD. However, Guo pointed out that Apple will only support the band below 6GHz (such as mainland China) according to the 5g deployment in different countries and regions, and support the band below 6GHz and millimeter wave at the same time in some countries and regions where 5g is not commercially available. Apple will software screen The 5g function has reduced the cost.
It is expected that new iPhone, which supports both 6GHz and millimeter wave, will be sold mainly in the United States, Canada, Japan, South Korea and the United Kingdom, accounting for about 15 percent of shipments.
Guo expects iPhone shipments to grow 6% to 205-210 million units in 2020, and another 8% to 220-250 million units in 2021.
Interestingly,Guo also predicted that Apple would release the iPhone se 2 plus in the first half of 2021, with a screen size of 5.5 inches or 6.1 inches. It adopts a comprehensive screen design, but does not support face ID, so the area of the bangs is small, and the touch ID is integrated with the side power button.
By the second half of 2021, Guo predicted that the high-end iPhone models would eventually cancel the lightning interface, but will not use usb-c, but fully wireless connection.
