San Francisco, Dec 6: Qualcomm President Cristiano Amon at Company's Snapdragon Tech Summit this week has said that the main goal of Qualcomm's renewed relationship with Apple right now is to get a 5G iPhone launched on time. During the summit, Amon stated: "Priority number one of this relationship with Apple is how to launch their phone as fast as we can. That's the priority," PCMag reported recently. "We have a multi-year agreement with Apple. It's not one, it's not two, it's multi-year for our Snapdragon modem. We're setting no expectations on front end, especially because we engaged it very late," Amon added. Apple iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max Likely To Feature 6GB of RAM: Report

Earlier, Apple and Intel were working closely to bring a 5G iPhone. However, once the six-year deal between Qualcomm and Apple was made, Intel later moved away from the 5G mobile marketplace. J.P. Morgan analyst Samik Chatterjee believes, Apple will release a 5.4-inch iPhone, two 6.1-inch iPhones and one 6.7-inch iPhone with 5G connectivity in 2020. Apple IPhone 12 to Be Smaller in Size: Report

Chatterjee predicts the company may introduce two high-end models (one 6.1-inch and one 6.7-inch) with support for mmWave, as well as a triple-lens camera and "world facing" 3D sensing for improved augmented reality capabilities. While, two low-end models (6.1-inch, 5.4-inch) will not have mmWave or World facing 3D sensing, and will have a dual-lens camera. As per the report, Apple may use Qualcomm's X55 modems in all its 2020 iPhones, which support both mmWave and sub-6GHz spectrum.
