Apple’s 2018 iPhone models may feature dual SIM and improved LTE support

By : |November 23, 2017 0

Apple is trying to outdo itself by introducing dual SIM and gigabit LTE support in 2018 iPhone models, reports KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who has previously correctly predicted Apple’s activities. He has shared a report in which he claims that next year’s iPhone models will include faster antenna modules.

According to Kuo, Apple’s next iPhones will feature antennas capable of supporting the 4×4 MIMO (multiple input, multiple output) standard, an advancement seen as a stop-gap measure between 4G LTE and 5G, which is expected in 2020. Both iPhone 8 and X feature the 2×2 MIMO tech and the jump looks to provide a significant reason to upgrade in 2018 models.

The report from Kuo also states that for the first time Apple may be experimenting with dual SIM variant for its phones.

“2018 iPhone models won’t only offer faster LTE transmission speed: We predict that at least one of the 2018 new iPhone models will support dual-SIM dual standby (DSDS). Unlike existing DSDS phones, which commonly support LTE+3G connections, we believe next-generation iPhone models will support LTE+LTE connections, in a bid to enhance the user experience,” Kuo said,

The iPhone has so far remained limited to single SIM option. Apple is said to be working on three new iPhones for 2018 – a 6.5-inch OLED model, a 5.8-inch OLED model, and a 6.1-inch LCD model.
