Samsung announces more powerful Exynos processor without built-in 5G

  Samsung announces more powerful Exynos processor without built-in 5G The 7nm Exynos 990 will go into production by the end of the yearWhile it seems strange to see two processors announced in such quick succession, the Exynos 990 seems to be targeted at a slightly different market. VentureBeat notes that it lacks the integrated 5G modem found in the 980, meaning it will be better suited to 4G devices. It’s the faster processor of the two, but Samsung would need to pair it with a separate modem — like the 5G Exynos Modem 5123 that it also announced today — if it wants to use it in a 5G device.

Sub - 6 GHz and mmWave networks don’t work very well over long distances. You’re not going to manage your smart city traffic lights with hundreds of mmWave base stations. 700MHz bands will form the backbone of wide coverage 5 G networks both in terms of geography and new connected IoT

Frequency bands for 5 G NR are being separated into two different frequency ranges. First there is Frequency Range 1 (FR1) that includes sub - 6 GHz frequency bands , some of which are bands traditionally used by previous standards

Apple has never attempted to be the first company to support the next-gen, speedier, wireless data transfer standard. It waited to make the jump to 3G and 4G, and the company is taking a similar approach for 5G. While several of its rivals have already launched 5G phones, the iPhone 11 phones only support LTE, just like their predecessors. However, Apple is expected to adopt 5G as soon as next year. The same insider who said recently that all 2020 iPhones will sport 5G connectivity is back with a new prediction about next year’s iPhone lineup, revealing that the iPhone 12 — or whatever Apple ends up calling it — should support all 5G tech versions.

Samsung announces latest mobile processor likely destined for Galaxy S11

  Samsung announces latest mobile processor likely destined for Galaxy S11 At Samsung Tech Day 2019, the company announced its newest mobile processor, the Exynos 990, along with a complementary modem to bring 5G to the next generation of smartphones and mobile devices. On Thursday at this year's Samsung Tech Day, the company announced the Exynos 990 mobile processor and 5G Exynos Modem 5123.On Thursday at this year's Samsung Tech Day, the company announced the Exynos 990 mobile processor and 5G Exynos Modem 5123. The two components will likely work together in the brand's next generation of mobile devices to bring them more advanced artificial intelligence technologies and 5G connectivity.

The mmWave technology is just one part of what future 5 G networks will use. You may also have heard about “low band ” frequencies and “ sub - 6 GHz In a nutshell, lower frequency bands cover much greater distances but offer slower data speeds, while high-frequency bands cover much smaller areas

Kuo believes that the 5 G iPhone models will support both mmWave and sub - 6 GHz bands . This will allow the iPhone to interoperate well with the 5 G cell towers installed across the United States. We expect that the shipment allocation of iPhone models that support 5 G mmWave will account for

A new research note from Ming-Chi Kuo seen by 9to5Mac claims that the 5G iPhones will support both mmWave and sub-6GHz bands. These are 5G frequency versions in use in several markets around the world, and the 5G networks of the future will work on a combination of mmWave and sub-6GHz bands. Phones will, therefore, have to support both these frequency types, and the 5G iPhone shouldn’t be the only 2020 device to come with mmWave and sub-6GHz compatibility.

Kuo’s note also indicates that Apple will continue to use LCP FPC antennas on 2020 iPhones, or antennas that are made of a Liquid Crystal Polymer material:

T-Mobile’s nationwide 600 MHz 5G network will launch on December 6th

  T-Mobile’s nationwide 600 MHz 5G network will launch on December 6th Joining the company’s existing short-range mmWave networkT-Mobile has also started rolling out its 5G network on a smaller scale with faster (but short-range) mmWave technology in a few cities, similar to Verizon. The 600 MHz half of the network looks to help make up for the shortcomings of mmWave networks, like the short range and difficulties of getting signals into buildings.

2020 iPhone Models to Reportedly Support mmWave and Sub - 6 GHz Bands for Widespread 5 G Support in Various Markets. Kuo also believes that all three 2020 iPhone models will support mmWave and sub - 6 GHz bands , allowing the three smartphones to work well not just in the U.S., but

While the sub - 6 GHz module uses radio frequencies similar to existing wireless phones, the mmWave module is a significant breakthrough. These type of modem-to-antenna solutions, spanning both mmWave and sub - 6 spectrum bands , make mobile 5 G networks and devices, especially

We expect that the shipment allocation of iPhone models that support 5G mmWave will account for 15–20% of the total shipments of new 2H20 iPhone models. This will benefit LCP FPC usage a lot, given the 5G mmWave iPhone uses three LCP FPC units (vs. other iPhone models’ single LCP FPC unit).

The advantage of LCP antennas is twofold. First, they have a very low signal loss, which is an advantage for 5G, which has lower penetration, depending on what bands are used. Secondly, their performance isn’t affected by temperature fluctuations.

iPhone models will require more LCP FPC antennas because 5G phones need more antennas. That’s why Kup expects LCP FPC antenna shipments to increase for next year’s iPhone.

Even though Apple is developing its own 5G modem, the company will likely purchase 5G parts from Qualcomm for the 2020 iPhones.

New leak says iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max are getting a major display upgrade .
Over the past few months, the 2020 iPhone rumors have all seemed to land on Apple once again releasing three new models next year, but this time with screen sizes of 5.4 inches, 6.1 inches, and 6.7 inches, respectively. But this week, a report from ETNews cites industry sources which claim that Samsung will be the sole provider of OLED displays for the 5.4-inch and 6.7-inch models, and that those displays will be thinner than ever. As ETNewsAs ETNews explains, the OLED displays in the past have had to utilize a separate film on top of the display panel for touch functionality, but the on-cell touch flexible OLED panels, which use Samsung’s Y-OCTA technology, have touch sensors built into the panel, which makes displays thinner and lowers pro
