Kuo believes that one of next year’s iPhones will support dual-SIM cards, with both of slots ready to deliver 4G LTE speeds. “2H18 iPhone models won’t only offer faster LTE transmission speed: We predict that at least one of the 2H18 new iPhone models will support dual-SIM dual standby (DSDS),” Kuo predicts, per MacRumors.

“Unlike existing DSDS phones, which commonly support LTE+3G connections, we believe next-generation iPhone models will support LTE+LTE connections, in a bid to enhance the user experience.”

Beside the upgraded modems and dual-SIM support, it has also been predicted that the future iPhones will all support Face ID as a feature to unlock the iPhones. Kuo says that Apple believes including Face ID on its iPhones will give it a competitive edge over Android rivals. “We predict all new 2H18F iPhone models will likely abandon fingerprint recognition. We believe this change will allow all new models to realize a competitive advantage via differentiation, on the back of an integrated user experience of full-screen design and TrueDepth Camera/ Facial recognition/ Face ID/ AR applications,” the note reads.
