The ability to enjoy profoundly fast 5G is a highlight from the most recent iPhone 12 forecast report from JPMorgan.
As it stands now, per AppleInsider, we may be getting four variants of the OLED-boasting Apple device in 2020. Two devices are predicted in the report to have 6.1-inch screens, with the other two variants putting to use 5.4-inch and 6.7-inch displays, respectively.
The top-tier models, predicted here as the 6.7-inch and one of the 6.1-inch editions, will provide users with the benefits of what’s described as "world-facing 3D sensing" via (potentially, anyway) VCSELs. These models may boast the added good fortune of that aforementioned profoundly fast 5G, with standard-speed 5G relegated to the less pricey editions of the iPhone 12.
For the faster 5G phones, Apple is expected to dive into mmWave, available in cities and similar areas. Standard models, meanwhile, are expected to offer 5G in a more traditional way, i.e. with greater service area but slower access speeds.
Also in the rumor pipeline this week is analyst predictions stating that Apple may be preparing to change up its release schedule following the iPhone 12 drop. Per 9to5Mac, also citing JPMorgan reports, the company—possibly as soon as 2021—could launch a pair of new phones in the first half of the year and another pair of devices in the traditional holiday period mere months later.
Earlier this year, hungry Apple enthusiasts were gifted with the annual tradition of new device renders, which you can revisit with optimism below:
