During the COVID-19 crisis, Apple had successfully launched a virtual product launch, and now the company is preparing for the most important virtual product launch to date. The smartphone giant plans to hold an online event on October 13, when it will launch the company’s first 5G-enabled iPhone. Apple’s new mobile phone launch event this year is a little later than usual, and it is expected that the company will stock up enough before the holiday.

People have been holding smartphones for longer and longer. For Apple, this has become an increasingly difficult problem. Investors hope that the new 5G mobile phones can promote a wave of upgrades. U.S. operators are continuing to build their 5G networks. The initial launch of this new wireless standard may not bring the most significant improvement in Internet speed, but over time, the improvement is beyond doubt.

Apple hinted in the invitation letter to the conference on Tuesday that 5G is the main selling point of its new phones. The conference will start at 1:00 PM Eastern Time, and the slogan is “Hi, Speed.” It is unclear whether Apple will support the faster 5G millimeter wave spectrum, or whether the mobile phone is only compatible with “sub-6” 5G. “Sub-6” 5G is more widely used, but it has made little progress compared to 4G networks.

It is reported that Apple plans to launch four “iPhone 12” mobile phones at this conference. Many people expect that the company will launch two regular iPhone 12s with screen sizes of 5.4 inches and 6.1 inches, and two “pro” versions with screen sizes of 6.1 inches and 6.7 inches.

Deutsche Bank analysts also expect Apple to lower the price of the old iPhone 11 and plan to offer 6 to 8 different iPhone models while discontinuing some early versions.

According to Deutsche Bank analysts, the Pro version of the iPhone may be equipped with a third camera on the back and equipped with a 3D lidar sensor system to improve augmented reality capabilities. Considering the name “Hi, Speed”, all four new phones should be able to connect to 5G networks. He expects this 5.4-inch model will be popular with consumers, because although Apple is gradually shifting to larger screens, consumers still have strong demand for smaller screens.
