Wei Feng network Nov. 22 news, well-known Apple analyst from KGI Securities Guo Mingfu today issued a report to investors, said the upcoming 2018 Apple iPhone will use the upgraded liquid crystal polymer (LCP) Antenna module, which will help faster LTE transmission speed.
Kwok said the new iPhone model will use at least two LCP LTE antenna modules, just like the iPhone X, but with improvements in support of the 4x4 MIMO standard.
The report states: "Antenna design upgrades are a key factor in the anticipated LTE transmission speed increase in the next-generation iPhone as a LTE antenna FPCB material, which is superior to PI in terms of high frequency, thermal performance and moisture resistance." We expect the new The iPhone will feature two LCP LTE antenna modules, like the iPhone X, or more, but with more configuration to support the 4x4 MIMO standard. "
Last week, Guo said the company expects Apple to use the Intel XMM 7560 and Qualcomm Snapdragon X20 modems for its next-generation iOS devices, resulting in faster LTE speeds. Both chips support the 4x4 MIMO technology mentioned earlier, while the current iPhone models support 2x2 MIMO.
4x4 MIMO (Multiple-Input Multiple-Output) can significantly improve LTE transmission speeds by increasing the data path between cellular towers and iOS devices.
In his previous report, Guo Ming-kun once said that Apple is producing three 2018 iPhone models, including a 5.8-inch OLED model similar to the current iPhone X, there is a 6.5-inch OLED models, Can be considered "iPhone X Plus", and a new 6.1-inch LCD models, designed to be sold at a lower price. Kwok Ming-kuo said that all three products will use a similar iPhone X-style display, and supports Face ID.
