Apple’s iPhones just got a lot faster. During its virtual event Tuesday, the company unveiled its iPhone 12 lineup — and all four new devices come with 5G, including the ultra-fast millimeter wave version. The company’s 5.4-inch iPhone 12 Mini, 6.1-inch iPhone 12, 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro and 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Max pack in some of the biggest advances Apple has made in years.

Apple’s iPhone 12 launch with 5G will complete the smartphone equation to make speedier wireless access a reality in the US. And coverage with broader price points will spur upgrades into 2021.
Analysts are expecting the iPhone 12 family–iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max–to all feature 5G. The models are rumored to cover a wide range of price points including the $400 to $700 range where the growth will be.
Now Android devices have been all over 5G, but Apple represents the 46% of the market in the US, according to Counterpoint Research. In addition, 5G devices have typically been reserved for the premium market until recently.
Apple’s iPhone 12 series will ensure the two leading smartphone platforms are 5G equipped. As a result, analysts are betting on another supercycle for the iPhone, or a once in a decade upgrade cycle.
You might recognize the TCL brand from its value-priced Roku TVs sold through Amazon, Best Buy and the like, but it’s been a player in the mobile space through its manufacturing of phones for the likes of Alcatel and BlackBerry. In 2020, the Chinese company has moved to release Android phones under its own moniker, which have been well-reviewed by ZDNet’s own reviewers (here and here). Next up: launching into the tablet market through a partnership with Verizon.
Whereas it’s selling its TCL 10 Pro and 10L smartphones unlocked in the U.S., it’s taking a different approach with its Tab 8 tablet by hooking up with a wireless carrier. At $199.99, or $8.33 per month for 24 months, the 8-inch slate is Verizon’s cheapest tablet offering, about three dollars per month cheaper than an 8.4-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab.
Though the Galaxy Tab has a slightly bigger screen
