Apple can launch five new iPhones in 2020, according to well-known Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. Krue is labeled as a specialist by Apple, and his research note (through MacRumors) describes Apple’s clear strategy.
Kuo predicts that the company will launch a device in early 2020, instead of starting an iPhone in September. Another analyst recently forecasts this strategy, but it is not expected to happen until 2021.

Returning to the five new iPhones, Kuo says that Apple will launch the so-called iPhone SE2 early next year. The device is expected to come with a 4.7-inch LCD screen. Kuo noted earlier that the iPhone SE 2 would feature an iPhone 8 design, an A13 chip, and a 3GB RAM.
This occurs after the launch of four iPhone OLEDs in the second half of 2020. The 2020 OLED iPhone series includes two models of 5.4 inches, 6.7 inches, and 6.1 inches.
The analyst expects all high-end OLED iPhones to come with 5G connectivity. To facilitate 5G, Kuo expects Apple to use the Qualcomm X55 modem. The modem will connect to Snapdragon 865 SoC for flagship Android 5G phones by 2020.
Kuo says that models with sub-6GHz or sub-6GHz + mmWave will vary in different countries. He hopes that the iPhone mmWave 5G will arrive in the United States, Canada, Japan, Korea, and the United Kingdom. Meanwhile, the sub-6GHz iPhone is available on 5G networks or in countries with low 5G penetration.
