- Apple is planning one of its largest launches for next year's 5G iPhones
- According to reports, Apple is developing three different 5G iPhone models
- The powerful new smartphone network can deliver 1.7 GB per second
Apple has great expectations of its often rumored 5G iPhone, which is rumored to be released in 2020.
A new report from Nikkei Asian Review says the tech giant plans to ship an estimated 80 million units for the 5G iPhone.
The phone is expected in three models and will have a new processor designed by Qualcomm.

According to a new report from Nikkei Asian Review, Apple plans to ship no less than 80 million 5G iPhones by 2020
Although 5G is still a standard, Apple is not the first smartphone manufacturer to launch a 5G handset.
In April, Samsung released a series of 5G smartphones, which currently include Galaxy S10 5G, Galaxy Fold 5G, Galaxy Note10 5G and Galaxy A90 5G.
The phones are considerably more expensive than standard smartphones, with the 5G models from Samsung ranging in price from $ 850 to $ 2,000.
In September, Samsung said it had sold two million 5G phones in its range and predicted that it would sell a total of 4 million by the end of the year.
One of the challenges in developing the 5G market is the high costs that mobile providers have to pay to build the infrastructure to support it.
5G networks are ten to twenty times faster than 4G networks and deliver 1.7 GB of data per second
WHERE ARE VERIZON & # 39; S NEW 5G CITIES?
Verizon said it will roll out 5G coverage in 20 new US cities. They include:
Atlanta Boston, Charlotte, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Dallas, Des Moines, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Little Rock, Memphis, Phoenix, Providence, San Diego, Salt Lake City and Washington DC.
To take advantage of the new speeds, customers must use a 5G-compatible phone.
Verizon covers that goal by offering the Galaxy S10 5G – the first 5G compatible device sold in the US
"Apple's move to introduce all three 5G iPhones will increase carriers' confidence to invest," said Eddie Han, analyst at Market Intelligence & Consulting Institute. Nikkei.
When Samsung launched its 5G phones in collaboration with Verizon, the provider offered 5G service in 20 US cities and promised to add 10 more coverage by the end of the year.
5G coverage is reportedly ten to twenty times faster than 4G networks.
Investors believe that 5G can significantly reform the mobile market.
5G coverage would make it possible to download a 4K movie in seconds, something that could change the way people think about content on their mobile devices.
In China, the city of Wuzhen, just outside of Shanghai, was subsequently installed as the country's first 5G city, with networks capable of sending 1.7 GB of data per second.
The super-fast data networks can also make it easier for smart devices to spread in daily life, driving semi-autonomous vehicles, smart ambulances, factory-connected equipment and much more.
WHAT IS 5G AND WHAT DOES IT DO?
The evolution of the G system began in 1980 with the invention of the mobile telephone with which analogue data could be sent via telephone conversations.
Digital came in 1991 with 2G and SMS and MMS capabilities were launched.
Since then, the possibilities and carrying capacity for the mobile network have increased enormously.
More data can be transferred from one point to another faster than ever via the mobile network.
The expectation is that 5G is up to 1000 times faster than the currently used 4G.
Although the jump from 3G to 4G was the most cost-effective for mobile browsing and working, the move to 5G will be so fast that they become almost real-time.
This means that mobile activities will be just as fast as office-based internet connections.
Potential use for 5g includes:
- Simultaneous translation of multiple languages into a party conference call
- Self-driving cars can stream movies, music and navigation information from the cloud
- A full 8 GB movie can be downloaded in six seconds.
5G is expected to be so fast and efficient that it is possible for the end of wired connections to begin.
By the end of 2020, it is estimated that 50 billion devices will be connected to 5G.
The evolution from 1G to 5G. The predicted speed of 5G is more than 1 Gbps – 1,000 times higher than the existing speed of 4G and could be implemented in laptops of the future
