    Take every rumor with a grain of salt. All we can do is wait until they release the iPhone 12.

    iPhone 12 will likely only support 5G on sub 6 bands — aka all bands EXCEPT mmWave.

    iPhone 12 PRO (and Pro Max) will likely add support for mmWave in addition.

    I would be surprised if any iPhone model universally supported sub-7 GHz 5G but not mmWave because Verizon requires OEMs to support mmWave on all 5G devices. It’s possible that with Verizon’s launch of DSS it will relax that requirement, and it’s also possible that Apple will make a separate Verizon version, but both seem unlikely. Verizon is all-in on mmWave, and Apple would face both the pricing issues and the increased logistical complexity of doubled inventory; customers would refuse to accept the Verizon version costing more, so either Verizon would have to subsidize it or Apple would have to price the other models higher to match. Plus with all carriers in the world either actively deploying or investigating mmWave, it would be beneficial to incorporate mmWave into all iPhone models.

    By the way, I recommend updating your lexicon to “sub-7 GHz” because with the FCC’s approval of 6 GHz for unlicensed use, especially for Wi-Fi 6E, 5G will also be able to operate in 6 GHz via 5G NR-U (NR-LAA?).

    Current rumors I have seen indicate all iPhone 12 models will support all 5G bands. Though I have seen even further out rumors that next years models might be differentiated by part of the world.
    iPhone 11 is my current primary phone. But I have more phones than lines. Back to only Prepaid with the changes in the economy.

    We shall see. I agree re: Verizon’s push/emphasis on mmWave.

    But all reports to date suggest including mmWave will delay availability.

    Maybe/Obviously Asia bounced back from COVID much better than we have.

    Unless the 12’s, without mmWave get delayed until next year and the 12 Pros are released in late Fall.

    Verizon said they will have low band nationwide as with T-Mobile and AT&T. All of them have (T-Mobile especially) (Verizon will have it by end of year they said) mid band. They all have high band. So (not just Apple, Sammy also etc) this time around why can’t Apple include all three bands especially in the unlocked version? I’m not buying an iPhone that just supports low band. I could possibly say the same thing about the other two but depending on speed of deployment I could possibly live with an iPhone that just supports low band and high band. Otherwise I’ll just wait till next year to upgrade which is a first for me. Last year was a first when I only purchased the iPhone 11 Pro Max.
