The indication comes from Qualcomm’s quarterly earnings report for Q3 2020. The firm reportedly says that its income will undergo an influence as a consequence of “the delay of a 5G flagship phone launch”.
To add to that, Qualcomm’s CFO Akash Palkhiwalia stated “We’re seeing a partial impact from the delay of a flagship phone launch. And so what we’ve seen is a slight delay that pushes some of the units out from the September quarter to the December quarter for us.”
The iPhone 12 is likely one of the largest smartphone launches in September, which leads analysts to consider that Qualcomm is speaking in regards to the 5G iPhones being delayed this yr.
Apple is anticipated to launch 4 iPhones this time round. We predict to see a 5.4-inch iPhone 12 (rumours of which have been not too long ago solidified based mostly on code present in iOS 14 Beta), a 6.1-inch iPhone 12 and a 6.1 inch iPhone 12 Pro, and a 6.7 inch iPhone 12 Pro Max. While not all the new iPhones are anticipated to assist 5G networks, a few of them are, probably the Pro variants. Based on this newest report, it could possibly be that Apple begins promoting the iPhone 12 as per its regular timeline and releases the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max 5G variants someplace inside the subsequent couple of months.
