Apple is expected to use ultra-wide band technology to help devices transmit data at speeds of up to 500 Mb / s at a distance of 3m.
Technology blogger Ben Geskin has just released a series of photos that allegedly belonged to the iPhone 2020 (or iPhone 12). Apple’s new device is inspired by the iPhone 4 and will have significant improvements over the previous generation. Specifically, in addition to supporting the Wi-Fi 6 standard as the iPhone 11, the new device will integrate 5G connectivity, so the antenna slot on the side of the machine is wider than the old designs and made from other materials. This change comes from the fact that the connection system and 5G model are different from the old network technologies.
Besides, the “notch” on the iPhone 12 will also shrink because the new FaceID facial recognition hardware system will be smaller. Ben Geskin said Apple is experimenting with many FaceID solutions with different optical systems.
Changing the “rabbit ears” design is considered easy to understand. Apple’s FaceID technology is considered a branding feature but has become somewhat outdated compared to rivals. Instead of “Apple” cramming all the hardware on the top edge of the device, users expect them to shrink this “notch”.
The iPhone 12 may remove the Lightning port, but it won’t use USB type C like current Android models. Instead, the device will use UWB wireless technology (Ultra wideband, ultra-wide band) that allows data transfer rates up to 500 Mb / s in a distance of 3m and 110 Mb / s at 10m.
Earlier, Ben Geskin iPhone 12 would use three new overlapping circuit boards. This design aims to increase the internal space to accommodate other hardware, for example, 5G network components, while reducing the size of the device. From the iPhone X onwards, Apple’s phone models have used the arrangement of two overlapping circuit boards.
Earlier, analyst Ming Chi-Kuo said Apple could introduce next-generation iPhones with different screen sizes and all models support 5G. The 120 MHz ProMotion display on iPad Pro will also be included in the new iPhone. Besides, the smartphone launched in 2020 of “Apple” is also equipped with 3D camera and USB type C connector.
