Now that 2018’s Apple iPhones (excluding the iPhone XR) are out, rumors about 2019’s iPhones will now take pace. One of the first rumors is the talk about the support for 5G connectivity and what might be the costing of the handset. As per a report by DigiTimes, various Android handset makers are aiming to roll out 5G handsets next years and this might affect Apple.
It has been cited that if the iPhone-manufacturer aims to stick with 4G supporting smartphones in 2019, how it will be capable of justifying the rising costs of the device since Android OEMs will be offering the 5G smartphone at lower costs.
Speculations indicate that the 2019 iPhones by Apple will have support for dual-mode 4G/5G and the first 5G iPhone will have a price tag of almost $1,299. In case the company aims to go for a 5G handset in 2019, it might also lower the costs of the present models for those who are not yet ready to shift to 5G.
Speaking of future iPhones, there is no doubt that by launching a notch for the iPhone X, Apple set a new fashion in the worldwide smartphone industry. But it appears like Apple is looking for a way to change this as the latest report by Economic Daily News claims that the Cupertino-located tech behemoth might employ a unique “black coating” for its future iPhones for front camera lenses.
The report mentions an analyst at GF Securities (Chinese investment company), Jeff Pu, who has shared his study note claiming that Largan Precision (camera lens supplier for iPhone) is designing a unique black coating that permits the front camera lens to entirely vanish. According to Pu’s study, this tech can be designed by 2020 and will be used and can be equipped in future iPhones.
