Apple doesn’t want to slow down its ascension when it comes to smartphones. Although the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is even increasing in the US, the Cupertino-based giant will release its 2020 flagship phone in September. Dubbed as iPhone 12, the smartphone will come equipped with the A14 Bionic next-generation processor, 4K video recording, and more.
The iPhone 12 will also be Apple’s first 5G-capable smartphone. Digitimes claims that the new iPhone will possess a faster and more efficient modem than initially rumored. And this will be giving Apple a big advantage over most of the Android phones.
Snapdragon X55 modem is awaited
iPhone 12 was initially known to be equipped with Snapdragon X55 modems, as the analyst Ming-Chi Kuo and other sources claimed. Digitimes now states that Apple’s next handsets will instead be using the Snapdragon X60 silicon.
There will be four iPhone 12 models, and 5G networks will become available for all of them. But only the Pro variants will benefit from the mmWave 5G. That’s the fastest option of the 5G technology, as it offers speeds between 1Gbps and 2Gbps.
Apple’s 2020 flagship phone will become available in three versions. The Pro Max variant will be equipped with 6GB of RAM, 4K video recording, and it will be featuring a huge 6.7 inches display with a 1242×2688 pixels resolution. iPhone 12 will also come in three versions of storage: 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB.
The 5G technology will become a new trend among the smartphones in 2020. The connectivity grants faster speed, which allows information to travel faster and more efficient. Live streaming will become a lot more improved, and we all need such things in our lives. Those pesky moments when a live video gets interrupted multiple times in only several minutes will be gone for good, and we won’t miss them.
