Apple will introduce its first 5G iPhones next year, the company it rumored to launch three 5G smartphones in 2020.
According to a recent report by Strategy Analytics, Apple will be top of the 5G smartphone sales in 2020, although other companies already have 5G handsets available on the market.
It may seem counterintuitive that Apple, which currently has no 5G phones in its portfolio will be able to pass current 5G market leaders Samsung and Huawei,” comments Ken Hyers, Director at Strategy Analytics. “But with three new 5G models coming next year, Apple merely needs to match its current upgrade rates for newly introduced iPhone models to take the lead next year.”
“Currently Samsung is the undisputed market leader in 5G smartphones,” comments Ville-Petteri Ukonaho, Associate Director at Strategy Analytics. “But with the two largest 5G markets in 2020, China and the USA, dominated by Huawei and Apple respectively, these two vendors are set to lead in 5G next year.”
We presume that if all of the new iPhones are 5G that Apple are releasing in 2020 apart from the iPhone SE2, then the company will end up selling a lot of the handsets compared to ther 5G smartphones. It will be interesting to see what happens.
