Apple Inc AAPL.O held talks with Samsung Electronics Co Ltd 005930.KS and MediaTek Inc 2454.TW along with existing vendor Intel Corp INTC.O to supply 5G modem chips for 2019 iPhones, according to an Apple executive's testimony at a trial between Qualcomm Inc QCOM.O and the U.S. Federal Trade Commission on Friday.
What are the major innovations that would cause you to shell out your hard-earned cash for an iPhone in 2019? A spokesperson for Apple did not immediately respond to FOX Business' request for comment on the report.

Right now, the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max feature a dual-camera setup while the iPhone XR features a single-camera setup. The retailer has also discounted the iPhone 8; a device that's also the target of discounts by other retailers. The iPhone XR is Apple's budget model and comes with an LCD screen and thicker bezels around its screen.
The current iPhone XS series features two 12MP lenses, with one being a wide-angle lens and the other a telephoto with 2x optical zoom.

According to the Nikkei Asian Review, Apple will cut down production for all of its iPhone by as much as 50 million units in the first quarter of this year.

Apple usually unveils new handsets around September and considering 2019 just started, there's going to be a ton of rumours before the new iPhones are public. However, US prices do not include sales tax.
