The next iPhone will use an improved antenna11.11.2018
Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo shared his opinion about the next generation iPhone, which will be presented in September next year. This year were such smartphones as the iPhone XS iPhone XS iPhone Max and XR. Every one of these gadgets uses six antennas LCP (Liquid Crystal Polymer). The analyst claims that the next generation will be equipped with only two antennas or four antennas of the new type. The latter will be manufactured at the MPI technology (Modified Polyimide).
From the point of view of production, the LCP is not the best technology. To make such antennas difficult, and they are very fragile. But MPI is much easier to produce, and the percentage of quality products at the outlet above. If to trust analysts, next year the supply of LCP antenna for iPhone will be reduced by 70%. Most likely, it is very hard hit suppliers, however, the replacement of old Apple has already found 5 new suppliers, MPI antennas.
