This time, the analyst didn't come to bring any news about the 2019 lineup, but more interesting, he brought some interesting details about the 2020 iPhone lineup. If you want 5G, you'll need to get the 5.4-inch or the 6.7-inch model; the 6.1-inch model will still only go up to LTE, per the research note. Moving to a 5.4-inch diagonal will result in a device that is smaller than current offerings, and will probably match with previous iPhones generations.

As for Apple's upcoming 2019 iPhone lineup - it's expected that the iPhone 11 and 11 Max will look nearly identical to the XS and XS Max but will add an ultrawide camera while the iPhone XR successor will retain its LCD but get a second camera (likely a telephoto unit).

On the other hand the large iPhone will grow from a 6.5-inch OLED to a 6.7-inch one, likely reaching massive size.

The Pelicans and Randle could negotiate a new deal, or Randle could pursue another team. They will also receive the fourth overall pick from the Lakers in the Davis trade.

Furthermore, Kuo says that every iPhone model will support 5G by 2021, and that Qualcomm will be Apple's primary supplier of 5G modems initially. The 2020 iPhone 12 and 12 Max will support both sub-6GHz and mmWave technology.

Regardless, if Kuo's report is on point, the design of the 2020 iPhone models will be the most significant departure for the smartphone line since the iPhone X was introduced in 2017.

Although Apple hasn't even released its 2019 iPhones yet, rumors about the 2020 iPhone lineup have already begun. The 2019 iPhone XS and XS Max will look nearly identical to the 2018 units with the exception of camera design and amount of sensor. But by 2020, perhaps the prospect of embedding a camera and the necessary sensors beneath the display will be less daunting.
