Apple is now getting ready to enter the 5G space in 2020, states a report by Nikkei Asian Review. While the firm’s rivals are ahead in this move, it is now taking strong steps and focusing on shipping approximately 80 Million 5G iPhones in 2020 by mobilizing its suppliers. About 3 flagship 5G models will be rolled out by the technology company, the report stated. These models will incorporate Qualcomm’s 5G modem chip as the patent dispute between both the firms was resolved in this year’s April.
Market Intelligence and Consulting Institute’s Analyst Eddie Han told Nikkei, “Apple’s latest decision to roll out all three 5G iPhones will boost carriers’ confidence to invest.” According to an individual report, selling 200 Million iPhones in the upcoming year and the launch of 4 new models including both 4G and 5G devices are the firm’s current key plans. Samsung, which is Apple’s key rival, is ahead of the firm as it has already rolled out numerous 5G smartphones including Galaxy Note10 5G, Galaxy S10 5G, Galaxy A90 5G, and Galaxy Fold 5G. Moreover, Samsung had announced in September 2019 that it has shipped about 2 Million 5G phones and plans to achieve the target of selling 4 Million by the end of this year.
On a similar note, Apple has recently introduced a few executive-level changes and offered a promotion to several of its staff members and now they will work at the vice-president level. Reportedly, these promotions are offered to the most prominent players in the firm. Bloomberg report states that now the position of the Vice President Of Hardware Engineering will be served by Paul Meade, who was earlier serving as the Head of Hardware Development for the firm’s augmented reality headset. Moreover, Jon Andrews, who was working on software architecture, will now serve the position of the Vice President Of Software Engineering.
