It remains unclear if Apple will be able to keep pace with the development of the 5G iPhone and maintain its cost now that the company is designing the antenna for the device.

It could default to this option later this year, our source said. But that would require Apple to settle for a slightly thicker iPhone than it wants. Qualcomm has said that its QTM 525 antenna module will “support 5G smartphone designs sleeker than 8 millimeters thick”, the report added. … [Read more...] about Qualcomm antennas are too big, so Apple is working on own for its 5G iPhones
Qualcomm Atheros has been an investor in Wilocity since 2008 and worked closely with the startup to develop its technology.

For the last two or so years, Qualcomm has steadily been moving away from using ARM's own architectures; most dual- and quad-core chips from the Snapdragon S4, Snapdragon 400, Snapdragon 600, and Snapdragon 800 families used the company's own custom "Krait" CPU architecture instead.

If we see a 64-bit, ARMv8 version of Krait, it's apparently not going to be this year. … [Read more...] about Qualcomm’s new high-end, 64-bit Snapdragon 808 and 810 to arrive next year

That makes a huge difference in day-to-day usage — once you get accustomed to the screen on the S20+, you wouldn't want to go back to a regular 60Hz display, even one as good as the Note 10+. To be fair, you'll only be able to unlock 120Hz on the S20+ at FHD+ resolution, so at QHD+ both devices are on an qual footing. … [Read more...] about Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus vs. Galaxy Note 10 Plus: Which should you buy?
As per the report, Apple is expected to use a time-of-flight system, which measures the time that it takes for light to bounce off of objects in a room to generate a 3D map. Additionally, Kuo also reiterated that Apple plans to release its low-cost iPhone “SE 2” in the first half of 2020 too. … [Read more...] about Apple iPad 2020 set for big performance boost with A14 chip, 5G support
