“Based on our supply chain checks, we are expecting a strategic change in the launch cadence with the release of two new iPhone models in 1H21 followed by another two in 2H21, which will serve to smooth seasonality around the launch,” J.P. Morgan analyst Samik Chatterjee writes.
The analysts also predict that Apple will launch four new iPhones in September 2020 that all feature OLED screens and 5G modems, though some will not support mmWave technology. Additionally, they corroborate reports that a new low cost iPhone will launch in spring.
“The 2H20 lineup will include all OLED phones, with screen sizes of 5.4″ (one model), 6.1″ (two), and 6.7″ (one), broadening the screen size range from 5.8″ to 6.5″ in 2019,” Chatterjee writes. “We expect the two higher end models (one 6.1″, one 6.7″) to include mmWave support, triple camera and World facing 3D sensing, while the lower-end models (one 6.1″, one 5.4″) will include support for only sub-6 GHz and dual camera (no World-facing 3D sensing).”
J.P. Morgan raised its twelve month AAPL price target to $296 from $290.
