The new iPhones are likely to roll out in the second half of 2020, according to analysts and come in a number of sizes, including one measuring 5.4 inches, another 6.7 inches, and two 6.1 inches.

Does 2020 iPhone Models will be Smaller in Size?
There is no assurance about any of the predictions outlined in the document that are focused on supply chain tests. The findings of the study are slightly different from other speculations, some of which say that the 2020 iPhone range will look like the 2019 models of 5.4 and 6.7-inch higher-end iPhones and a cheaper 6.1-inch handset.
At a time when Apple’s smartphone sales were slowing down and its new models look the same as older models, a 5G iPhone might have given the bus a boost. It is expected that the next generation of ultra-fast wireless connections, 5G technology, will bring more innovation to smartphones, including better video sharing, and enable significant technical developments, such as linking self-driving cars.
Apple Made a Swift Shift From QCOM to INTC
But Apple’s shift from Qualcomm (QCOM) components to Intel (INTC) components over the past few years has reportedly stalled 5G modem development in time for the cycle this year.
The delay can also be a warning that consumers are not yet clamoring for 5G. It should also be noted that while Verizon (VZ), AT&T (T) and T-Mobile (TMUS) are expanding their 5G networks in the United States, coverage is still somewhat limited.
