One of the most truted source of Apple rumors, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said the company would unveil 5G iPhones in 2020, while Qualcomm is still expected to be its primary supplier of 5G modems.

According to media reports, Cupertino-based company is expected to launch three iPhones next year. Apple’s 6.7-inch and 5.4-inch iPhones will be 5G-capable, while a mid-size 6.1-inch iPhone won’t have 5G and will likely be cheaper without 5G features, news website MacRumors reported.

The noted Apple expert and predictor also believes that Apple will have its own 5G modem ready by 2022 to 2023, which should reduce its dependance on Qualcomm.

Less and less Apple users are sticking with iPhones when it comes to replacement and are switching to Android phones, especially Samsung, a new report by BankMyCell has said.

The iPhone trade-in site has been collecting data on the new device people have during the valuation and trade-in of their old iPhone. It essentially lets users sell their used phone and upgrade to a new one.

BankMyCell found that 18.1 per cent of iPhone users were trading in their device for a Samsung device in June, the highest level since it’s been in the study, according to a CNET report on Thursday.
