Ming-Chi Kuo.: Apple’s 2020 iPhones will be all-OLED: 5.4- and 6.7-inch models with 5G, 6.1-inch model With LTE

:

Apple plans to release three new iPhones in the second half of 2020, including high-end 5.4-inch and 6.7-inch models with OLED displays and a lower-end 6.1-inch model with an OLED display, according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. Those display sizes line up with a DigiTimes report from a few months ago.

In a research note shared with Chinese media outlets today, Kuo said the 5.4-inch and 6.7-inch models will support 5G, while the 6.1-inch model will support up to LTE.

The new 5.4-inch and 6.7-inch sizes suggest that Apple may be planning to shrink the size of the current 5.8-inch iPhone XS, a move that fans of smaller phones would certainly appreciate, while increasing the size of the current 6.5-inch iPhone XS Max. The iPhone XR would remain a 6.1-inch device.

MacDailyNews Take: Those 5G units are going to start an upgrade avalanche! Hopefully, Apple will have plenty of those 5G units ready to go at launch for Christmas 2020.

A wider variance of display sizes will work well for sales, too, as those who prefer smaller iPhones will likely enjoy the 5.4-inch model which, without a Home button chin, will be smaller physically than it sounds.

  1. Well I am totally disappointed. You’d think Apple would be able to make 4, 4.7, 5.5, and 6.5 inch screens. At the same time, with current chipsets.

    I strongly suspect Apple is attempting to force 4” iPhone lovers to the Stupid Watch, which does only a small fraction of what a real smartphone can do. Apple doesn’t think it’s important to have a phone that fits comfortably in a pocket, they want your Apple gadget out in front of your nose at all times. Screw them. I am beginning to wish there was a viable 3rd OS player in the smartphone market. Waiting for Apple to deliver the hardware one wants is ridiculous.
