Many smartphone manufacturers are preparing for the emergence of networks of the fifth generation, which will begin to appear next year. Support for advanced standards has already been announced by Motorola, Samsung and Lenovo. However, Apple will not participate in this race.
According to numerous sources, the American corporation will act exactly as it did in the case of 4G networks - fourth generation networks appeared in 2011, and its first smartphone with support for the iPhone 5 standard was introduced only in 2012. Thus, we can conclude that the first iPhone with a 5G modem will be released no earlier than 2020.
By the way, according to market analysts, the absolute majority of flagship smartphones will have a 5G modem only by 2022.
