Apple is planning to abandon the LCP antennas
The Apple company is planned to be from the use of antennas with the technology zhidkometallicheskih polymer (LCP) and replace them with the modified polyimide device (MIP) in 2019. This was told the journalists of the portal Appleinsider.
To date, the iPhone XS , XS and XR Max iPhone LCP is equipped with six antennas.
“We expect that the new iPhone model 2019, including new 6.5-inch model OLED, 5.8-inch and 6.1-inch LCD will use four antennas and two MPI LCP”, — said the analyst TF International Securities Min-Chi.
The company has sufficient grounds for the imposition of new development. LCD antenna is very fragile and difficult to manufacture. MIP is less whimsical to the environment, easier to manufacture and more durable. In addition, according to experts, the main impetus for the use of technology was the ability to expand the range of suppliers. This will give corporations an advantage when setting prices and will attract alternative production in case of shortage of components.
