The world is very optimistic about Apple’s 5G versions of the iPhone. Almost all analysts believe that Apple’s first batch of iPhones that support 5G will ‘open the door to smartphone upgrades’.
A report pointed out that there are over 900 million Apple users worldwide. And about 350 million iPhones are currently in the upgrade window period. Apple’s first batch of 5G-enabled iPhones is expected to be released in September next year. Especially, users in the Chinese market will become the main consumers of these models.
It is reported that Apple will prepare 4 iPhone 5G versions next year, specifically two 6.1-inch, one 5.4-inch, and one 6.7-inch. They all will use the Qualcomm Snapdragon X55 baseband.
There is also news that Apple plans to add more advanced image stabilization components to the iPhone in 2020. The current iPhone supports optical image stabilization, while next year’s iPhone may support sensor displacement image stabilization. Optical image stabilization refers to the setting of optical components, such as lens settings, to avoid or reduce the phenomenon of instrument jitter that occurs during the capture of optical signals, thereby improving imaging quality.
In this sense, the sensor displacement stabilization should compensate for handshake through the displacement of related components to achieve the purpose of image stabilization.
The report also mentioned that there is no obvious difference between the two technologies. On the iPhone 11 Pro, both telephoto lenses and wide-angle lenses support optical image stabilization, but ultra-wide-angle lenses do not.
