The listing of the iPhone 11 series flagship not only allowed the iPhone’s sales in the market to recover smoothly but also successfully helped Apple’s total market value climb to 1.3 trillion US dollars.
However, as the first year of 5G in 2019, many mobile phone brands have launched their first 5G flagships. Therefore, a lot of fruit powder began to look forward to the 5G version of the iPhone in 2020.
With the arrival of 2020, consumers’ voices for 5G iPhones are getting higher and higher, and the news about the iPhone 12 series flagships is also increasing.
According to many sources, the iPhone 12 series will indeed support 5G networks, and consumers finally get what they want. Today, according to various sources, it can be determined that the iPhone 12 series will be equipped with an A14 Bionic processor.
Compared with the A13 Bionic chip, the Apple A14 uses the most advanced 5nm process that TSMC can currently achieve mass production.
The heightened production process can make the A14 bionic processor with more powerful core performance, coupled with the excellent iOS operating system, the iPhone 12 series is expected to become the world’s first high-end flagship.
As for 5G functions, according to sources, the iPhone 12 series flagship will be equipped with the Snapdragon X55 modem. Compared to other aspects, this may be the only regret of the iPhone 12 series.
After all, Qualcomm recently released the latest 5G baseband-the Snapdragon X60. It is understood that the Snapdragon X60 baseband, like the A14 Bionic chip, also uses a 5nm process.
This should be the world’s first 5G modem with a 5nm process. Aside from performance, gimmicks alone are enough to attract consumers. Of course, the Snapdragon X60 is not only a gimmick that can be used for promotion, but its comprehensive strength is also indeed quite outstanding.
According to Qualcomm’s official introduction, the upstream speed of the Snapdragon X60 can reach 3Gbps, and the download speed can reach 7.5Gbps.
The Snapdragon X60 baseband chip also supports 5G dual-module networks, and also supports FDD and TDD frequency bands including millimeter-wave and Sub-6GHz. All in all, the Snapdragon X60 has become the world’s most advanced 5G modem when the technology and other aspects have been updated.
The Snapdragon X60 baseband chip is expected to be available in 2021, which also confirms that the iPhone 12 series flagship equipped with the Snapdragon X55 baseband is true.
However, in my opinion, although the iPhone 12 series did not use Qualcomm’s strongest baseband chip, the overall competitiveness of the iPhone 12 series still cannot be underestimated.
If the iPhone 12 series, which will be launched in September 2020, is the same as the iPhone 11 series, the National Bank version is relatively reasonable in price, it will inevitably trigger another round of snap buying. But many analysts believe that the iPhone 12 series will increase its price slightly because it supports 5G. What do you think?
