Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has told investors that all three iPhone models slated for release next year would support 5G technology.

Kuo said earlier that the next year’s 5.4-inch and 6.7-inch iPhone models would support 5G while a third — a cheaper 6.1-inch iPhone XR successor — would only access LTE networks.

“Now he has issued a new report that all three iPhone models would support 5G,” The Verge reported on Sunday.

“We now believe that all three new 2H20 iPhone models would support 5G for the following reasons. (1) Apple has more resource for developing the 5G iPhone after the acquisition of Intel base-band business. (2) We expect that the prices of 5G Android smartphones will decline to $249-349 in 2H20.

“We believe that 5G Android smartphones, which will be sold at $249-349, would only support Sub-6GHz. But the key is that consumers will think that 5G is the necessary function in 2020,” Kuo was quoted as saying.

According to reports, Apple would continue to use Qualcomm modems for its 2020 lineup despite new acquisition.

The recent acquisition of Intel’s smartphone modem chip business for $1 billion would give the company more resources for developing the 5G iPhone.

China’s largest hard coal producer, the Yangquan Coal Industry Group, has inked a framework agreement with China Mobile and Huawei on promoting 5G-based intelligent mining.

The new alliance, based on their advantages in 5G and underground mining, is expected to explore the applications of the 5G network in coal mine communication, management, safety production and monitoring, said Wang Yongge, general manager of the mining group.

Shanxi province has more than 900 coal mines and produces about 900 million tonnes of coal annually, with some 300,000 miners working long hours underground, Xinhua news agency reported on Sunday.

“The use of 5G technology in underground application scenarios will bring effective improvements to safety production and the operating environment of coal miners,” Wang added.

Yankuang Group, a Shandong-based mining conglomerate, previously set up a joint lab with China Unicom and ZTE to develop 5G and intelligent mining.

Open-pit coal mines are also keeping up with the trend by integrating GPS, facial recognition, big data and other technologies, as 5G-powered tramcars went into service in a coal mine in north China’s Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, assisting the drivers to offload without blind spots.

President of Huawei Cloud China, Hong Fangming said that the new engines for corporate innovation brought by cloud computing, Artificial Intelligence, 5G and other technologies will be crucial for industrial upgrading. (IANS)
