When the iPhone 13 arrives later this year, it might expand the availability of 5G mmWave to more countries, suggests a new report.
Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo recently shared new details regarding 5G mmWave in upcoming iPhone 13 models.
iPhone 13 will spread 5G mmWave out of U.S.
As per Ming-Chi Kuo’s latest data, iPhone 13 will expand 5G mmWave in other countries, namely Canada, Australia, and Japan.
Various European nations are also expected to have access.
Currently, Apple sells high-speed 5G iPhone models only in the United States.
Here’s an excerpt from Kuo’s report:
“While 5G smartphone shipments increased significantly in 2020, most of them only supported Sub-6 GHz. We believe that mmWave will create more diverse applications than Sub-6 GHz because of the benefits of faster speed and lower latency.”
Furthermore, Kuo adds that the mmWave-enabled iPhone 13 series will allocate 50-60 percent of shipments. This will be a significant increase compared to 2020.
iPhone 12’s antenna design (located on the right side) is also expected to continue with this year’s line-up.
A while ago, Kuo also revealed that the new models might have a smaller notch, large battery, and a 120Hz display. The latter is rumored to appear in the flagship variants, namely 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max.
Upcoming reveals and announcements
Meanwhile, the California tech giant is set to reveal its first event of 2021, Spring Loaded, on April 20th.
The virtual-only session is expected to unveil lots of surprises. Some of the most-anticipated ones among them are the new iPad Pro with Mini-LED display and AirTags.
AirTags, the smart tracking products, has witnessed a long delay since last October. Finally, they are almost confirmed to make a debut.
Other important reveals might include a third-gen Apple Pencil and sixth-gen iPad Mini as well.
Apart from Spring Loaded, the rest of the calendar is also packed with massive announcements.
In June, the WWDC event will take place. And it will be a virtual conference, similar to last year.
The main highlight of the conference will be the iOS 15 software version. The next major update for iOS-enabled devices is rumored to bring tons of new features. For example, enhanced privacy, fresh UI design, and interactive widgets.
Finally, 2021 will end with the highly-awaited launch of the iPhone 13, which is already surrounded by multiple speculations.
