The iPhone Apple releases in 2018 may be a whole lot faster thanks to a new antenna it will implement, according to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
In an investors note, Kuo said Apple will use new liquid crystal polymer antenna modules that will contribute to faster LTE speeds. The new iPhone will be speced up to support 4×4 MIMO standards, taking full advantage of the new antenna system. Current iPhones only support 2×2 MIMO technology, lagging far behind Android competitors.
This will improve LTE output speeds, resulting in much faster connectivity for everything. It will open up the iPhone to the speeds carriers offer with Gigabit LTE.
Kuo already said he expected Apple to ship out three iPhone models in 2018: a 5.8-inch iPhone X follow-up, a bigger 6.2-inch iPhone X and an 6.1-inch iPhone with an LCD panel. Each of these will support the new liquid polymer antenna modules, as well as features like Face ID and the edge to edge display.
