With the holiday season fast approaching, Apple fans have not one, but three reasons to rejoice. The Cupertino giant is launching three new iPhones in September 2019. The three phones in the iPhone 11 series, as they are being called, will feature relatively fewer design changes when compared to the ones that were launched in 2018.
The 2019 debut, which will be the immediate successors to the iPhone XS, XS Max, and iPhone XR, will boast triple-camera systems and a new A13 multi-core performance-enhancing chip and are expected to cost the same as their 2018 counterparts. They will also sport both OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) and LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) models as Apple did in 2018 with its iPhone XS/iPhone XS Max and the cheaper iPhone XR, respectively. Apple fans will have to hold their breath about the 5G connectivity feature, as none of the iPhone 11 models will carry it.
Apple’s lineup for 2020
The year 2020 awaits an even bigger surprise for the Apple fandom! Though Samsung’s Galaxy S10 and OnePlus 7 editions are making headway with their 5G handsets entering the market in 2019, it looks like Apple won’t be ready to follow suit until 2020. The September 2020 iPhone series will reportedly carry several selling points like 5G baseband modems that will bolster cellular download speeds, OLED Displays, possible 3D sensing cameras on the back, and virtual reality features among others.
According to a JP Morgan report, the iPhones will be launched in three screen sizes – 5.4″, 6.1″ and 6.7″. Two out of three models will have 3D sensing ToF camera available in them. Apple is expected to scale up its iPhone sales by eight percent in 2020, up from an estimated 180 million iPhones sold in 2019 to 195 million in 2020. The report also suggests that 2020 iPhones could be called iPhone 12.
Apple is also stepping in with its cheaper iPhone in 2020, which will be the same size as the iPhone 8, in an effort to focus on a “much more ‘value’ category” as opposed to its recent launches. However, this edition will not feature 5G connectivity or OLED display. Also, iPhone users in China can expect an affordable handset with a Touch ID sensor built into its screen. This launch, however, awaits a date.
So, wait with bated breath, as Apple breathes lives into these releases!
