Apple to Get a Step Closer to the iPhone of Our Dreams in 2020 

An iPhone XS with the dimensions of an iPhone 7 would be a dream come true

 

The 2020 iPhone lineup will include several major changes for the Apple ecosystem, and these include not only the addition of a 5G smartphone and the full switch to OLED, but also new dimensions for the smallest and biggest iPhones.

The latest-generation iPhone models are available in three different sizes, namely 5.8 inches for the iPhone XS, 6.1 inches for the iPhone XR, and 6.5 inches for the iPhone XS Max.

But according to top Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple is aiming for a different lineup next year, so the three models will measure 5.4 inches, 6.1 inches, and 6.7 inches.

In other words, the smaller iPhone will be smaller, while the bigger iPhone will be bigger, and the iPhone XR successor will be the only model retaining its dimensions. However, this particular configuration will give up on the LCD screen for OLED, as all iPhones will use this display technology beginning with the 2020 generation.5G iPhone just around the cornerKuo says 2020 will also witness the debut of a 5G iPhone, and this is something that we’ve heard before on several occasions. The device will use a Qualcomm chip, and the analyst claims Apple is pushing harder for its own 5G baseband chip, albeit this is unlikely to be ready until 2022.

This means the iPhone 5G will be powered by Qualcomm for at least one year.

Apple will launch 5G versions of both the 5.4-inch and the 6.7-inch iPhones, while the 6.1-inch configuration will only offer LTE.

A smaller iPhone is without a doubt good news, especially given how successful the iPhone SE and the 4.7-inch iPhone have been over the years. By reducing the dimensions of the iPhone XS successor, Apple scores extra in terms of usability and the overall feeling in hand, which is something that many users are looking for these days.

While I still believe that a 4.7-inch iPhone with the design and small bezels of the iPhone XS would be the right way to go, a 5.4-inch model could be a major step in this regard, but it obviously remains to be seen how the new iPhone will sell.
