Today, analysts from Susquehanna predict that this year’s 5G iPhone will only support sub-6GHz, while the mmwave-enabled version may have to wait until 2021. Different operators around the world deploy mmWave and sub-6GHz at different times, and overall mmwave 5G is faster, but covers a smaller area.
More base stations are needed to deploy mmWave 5G at scale.
Susquehanna analysts believe that 5G iPhone shipments will be around 60 million in the second half of 2020. Tianfeng International analyst Mr. Guo predicts that this year’s 5G iPhone will be between 5.4 and 6.7 inches in size and will feature OLED screens.
