Expects a sharp rise
The news daily reported that Apple has given supply chain partners its shipment forecasts for the next-generation iPhone to be released in 2020, expecting a sharp rise compared to the estimated amount for the iPhone 11 series.
As per a recent report by Strategy Analytics, Apple is all set to capture the top spot in 5G smartphones in 2020.
“It may seem counterintuitive that Apple, which currently has no 5G phones in its portfolio will be able to pass current 5G market leaders Samsung and Huawei,” said Ken Hyers, Director at Strategy Analytics.
Apple Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes the ‘iPhone SE 2’ will sell at least 20 million units in its first calendar year of availability. He also said that it can go up to 30 million units if all goes well for Apple.
Qualcomm also hinted at the arrival of a 5G iPhone in 2020 this time. The news came from Qualcomm’s investors conference call.
