Apple seems to be preparing to release a set of three 5G iPhones in 2020 after missing on the fifth-generation wireless network tech with the iPhone 11 models. According to a Wednesday report from Nikkei, Qualcomm will be designing the modem.
The Cupertino-based firm intends to sell 80 million or more of its 5G iPhones. It has also set a sales target with the goal of taking over Huawei as the second-largest phone manufacturer in the world, Nikkei revealed. Huawei took over Apple’s position last year.
Apparently, the three 5G iPhones will be powered by the X55 chipset from Qualcomm after the pair settled their patent licensing battle in April, which lasted for two years.
Over the summer, it was suggested in a report that the iPhone maker will make modem chips for the 2021 iPhones by itself after closing a $1 billion deal with Intel’s modem business.
Apple and Qualcomm didn’t respond immediately to comment requests.
As players in the smartphone market are racing to make their offerings the most advanced and innovative, many of them have released their own 5G phones that promises hyperfast data speed for both uploads and downloads from ten to a hundred times than the current 4G wireless networks.
Over the past several months, we have seen 5G smartphones from LG, Huawei, Xiaomi, OnePlus, Samsung, etc. Meanwhile, Apple didn’t seem to have any 5G phone in progress, and that’s not the first (or the last) time the iPhone maker has laid back and let other players go ahead with new innovations. It’s likely that Apple will learn from their mistakes and its late-to-the-game offerings will fix those problems, promise more stable performance and hidden great features. Whatever it is, we’ll have to wait and see.
