China launched 5G network services in the high-altitude plateau of Qinghai-Tibet as a state telecom company opened a 5G base station in the city of Xining.

The government in April 2018 had announced to develop new wireless technologies such as 5G network in the region which lags behind in infrastructure.

Currently, part of the city’s downtown area is covered by 5G service, with a peak download speed of 1.3 gbps, about 10 times that of 4G service.

Additionally, Kuo also reiterated that Apple plans to release its low-cost iPhone “SE 2” in the first half of 2020 too.

The iPhone SE 2 will use a 10-layer Substrate-like PCB (SLP) for its motherboard, the same technology used by the iPhone 11 version.
