According to JPMorgan analyst Samik Chatterjee, Apple will release four new iPhones next fall, all of which will support 5G networks. According to Samik Chatterjee, the four new iPhones are 5.4 inches, two 6.1 inches and one 6.7-inch.
Chatterjee’s prediction is different from current mainstream rumors that Apple will release three iPhones next year, the 5.4-inch and 6.7-inch high-end iPhones and the 6.1-inch low-end iPhones.
All iPhones will be equipped with Qualcomm X55 baseband chips by 2020, and while the baseband chips support both millimeter wave and sub-6GHz technology, additional millimeter-wave antennas are needed if mmwave support is to be turned on on your smartphone. To make the low-end iPhone cheaper, Apple could cut off the millimeter-wave wires.
Finally, Chatterjee said Apple could make significant changes to the iPhone release cycle, with two new iPhones in the first half of 2021 and two new iPhones in the second half of 2021. Releasing the new iPhone twice a year will allow Apple to better compete with other smartphone makers.
