New iPhone Accelerates 5G Wave In 2020, Apple’s Homemade 5G Chip
The 5G smartphone process has received much attention, and the 5G version of the iPhone has accelerated the 5G wave. Overall, next year’s three new iPhones are expected to support 5G. Apple’s acquisition of Intel’s data machine business, accelerate Apple’s homemade 5G baseband chip, the fastest results in 2022.
The US foreign-funded legal person report expects that by 2020, the global 5G version of smartphone shipments will reach 200 million, mainly due to China’s accelerated development of 5G process. Apple estimates that 3 new iPhones will support 5G.
Previously, Apple and chipmaker Qualcomm reconciled, and Intel quit the development of 5G baseband chips, which also made the market highly expect the iPhone to support 5G in the second half of next year.
The US foreign-funded legal person pointed out that China’s Huawei and Apple will become the two promoters driving the global adoption of 5G mobile phones.
Looking forward to the 5G version of the iPhone shipment performance, US foreign-funded legal entities expect that in September 2020, Apple may launch three 5G versions of the iPhone. It is estimated that the shipment of the 5G version of the iPhone in the US will be approximately 25 million in the first year, and the second year will reach 46 million, and the third year will see 70 million shipments.
Analysts estimate that since the US is Apple’s home market and the US mainstream 5G technology is mmWave. It is unlikely that Apple will launch a 5G version of the iPhone that only supports Sub-6GHz spectrum.
From the perspective of 5G baseband chip integration application processors, including Qualcomm, Taiwan MediaTek, South Korea’s Samsung LSI and China’s Huawei HiSilicon, it is expected to become the main competitors for 5G Android operating platform smartphones.
In the Apple chip design section, it is expected that Apple will launch its own 5G baseband chip in 2022 or 2023. Prior to this, Apple will use Qualcomm’s 5G baseband chip but will use its own power amplifier or RF design, presumably for future use of its own 5G baseband chip.
