Reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes that Apple will have to increase the size of the logic board on the 2020 iPhones by 10% to make space for the 5G modem and other new technologies. This will lead to a 35% increase in component costs for the company.
Apple will be making use of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X55 modem inside its 2020 iPhones to offer 5G connectivity. This should not be surprising since multiple sources have claimed that 2020 iPhones will have 5G and it will be their biggest selling point in major markets of the world.
Apple is reportedly considering switching to 120Hz ProMotion displays for its 2020 iPhones. The company has not yet finalized plans on using a 120Hz refresh rate display on next year’s iPhones and is only considering it at the moment.
Apple is arguably the first company that helped smartphone display notches go mainstream. As always Apple’s rivals hated it in the beginning and later started implementing a similar design on their phones. The company has now prototyped a new iPhone with a 6.7-inch display and no notch.
The 2020 iPhones are shaping up to be a major hardware refresh from Apple. As per Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will adopt a new metal frame structure for the 2020 iPhones that will be similar to the iPhone 4.
