Although previous rumors claimed otherwise, a recent report by popular Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reveals that all three iPhone models that are expected to arrive in 2020 will feature 5G connectivity. All these upcoming devices — 5.4, 6.1, and 6.7 inches in size — are expected to sport OLED displays.

The 2020 iPhone-related leaks and rumors we bumped into so far usually mentioned OLED displays and two out of three models to feature 5G connectivity. However, the latest report that comes from Ming-Chi Kuo — a guy who is hailed as the most accurate Apple analyst worldwide — claims that all the iPhones that will hit the market next year will come with full 5G support.

The best part of the aforementioned report is that 5G Android smartphones are also expected to become quite affordable in the second half of 2020, with prices starting at US$249, so all higher-priced devices will have to offer this feature as well. Ming-Chi Kuo thinks that this is one of the three reasons that would make Apple come up with an all-5G lineup next year. The other two are Apple's increased 5G capabilities after the acquisition of Intel's baseband business and the fact that boosting 5G development would have a positive impact on the company's AR ecosystem.

In addition to the above, Ming-Chi Kuo also expects that the upcoming iPhone models will come with both mmWave and sub-6 GHz spectrum support to meet the requirements of the American market. The same source has previously revealed that the three upcoming iPhone models will have 5.4, 6.1, and 6.7 inches and size and will feature OLED displays. Obviously, many other iPhone-related rumors and leaks have surfaced recently, but Ming-Chi Kuo has managed to be the most accurate one so far.

Sadly, there is no rumor regarding the price of these next-gen iPhone models, but there is no chance for them to start below the US$500 mark.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
