2020 iPhone line-up might see four 5G devices

The 2019 iPhones are already basking on their success but the rumor mill never stops churning news about the upcoming devices. Dan Ives of Wedbush claims that Apple will launch 4 5G iPhones in 2020. These handsets will also feature something known as a rear 3D-sensing system, and motion control.

To jog your memory, Ming Chi-Kuo, a distinguished analyst and tipster had shared a similar report back in July. But she claimed that Apple will unveil only three iPhones that will support 5G. She further says that the 5G iPhone models will support both mmWave and sub-6GHz bands. This means that the 2020 iPhones can interoperate with the 5G cell towers that are installed across the US. She adds that the successor of the iPhone SE is coming in the first half of next year.

Kuo says in a note, “We expect that combined iPhone shipments in 1Q20 will grow around 10% YoY thanks to the iPhone 11’s replacement demand boosted by more affordable prices and iPhone SE2’s shipments starting in 1Q20. We estimate that iPhone shipment in 1Q20 will be 45–50mn units (iPhone 11 Pro series and iPhone 11 to be 13–15 and 22–24mn units, respectively), which is better than around 42mn units of iPhone shipments in 1Q19 (iPhone XS series and iPhone XR to be around 12 and 14mn units, respectively).”

Speaking about the motion control, it could involve a Pixel 4-like gesture interface, that is apparently on the way alongside a rear 3D-sensing system on all models. Whatever the case might be, take all these rumors with a pinch of salt.
