Apple’s 5G iPhone Arrives in the year 2020, Apple is one of the brands which is having the costliest phone of all. Not many people use this phone but people always urge for buying this phone. The design and specifications are not as great as compared to the price of the phone. But still, the design and specifications of the phone seek attraction of all. After iPhone XS Max and iPhone, XS Apple is going to launch their model in the year 2020. Price is the most important factor for every people. Let’s see what Apple sets the price of the upcoming iPhone 5G.

Intel providing the modem chip for Apple 5G iPhone

The plan of Apple is to use the Intel’s 8161 5G modem chip on the upcoming phone of Apple for the year 2020. Intel will be fabricating 8161 by using 10-nanometer process.

This will help in increasing the density of transistor which will increase the efficiency and speed. If nothing goes wrong, then Intel will be the main provider for the modem of the upcoming iPhones.

According to some of the source Apple is not so much happy with Intel. This is because of the issue related to heat dissipation on the 8060 chip.

There will be many wireless carriers like the AT and T and Verizon in the U.S. that will be relying initially on the millimeter-wave spectrum which comes between 28 GHz and 39 GHz.

This will be used to connect the first 5G phones. However, they will be requiring some heavy lifting from RF chains and modem chips. This will cause to release thermal energy at a rate which is more than the normal level.

This may cause the heat to be felt outside of the phone. This problem of heat can also affect the life of the battery.

However, the issues are not so serious with Intel which will let Apple start a conversation with Qualcomm for supplying the modem chips of 5G. Not only this, but the X50 modem of the Qualcomm also created a problem related to heat issues on other phones.

Apple also had a conversation with the Media Tek

Apple also had a talk with the Media Tek for supplying their new 5G iPhone with their modem chips.  But according to some sources, this is a plan B which is far away. Media Tek is also working for the 5G modems but they are basically for the phones with low price and not for the flagship phones. However, there is ample time for resolving these problems among themselves.

The beginning of the Apple 5G iPhone onslaughts

This debut of the 5G will take place on the Mobile World Congress show in the month of February next year. Moreover, Xiaomo, Oppo and Huawei will be having 5G modem powered by Qualcomm. Releasing the phone for the year 2020 is a sensible plan but not a surprising one. The final decision of this 5G modem took place this year only. However, the major market will be limited next year.
