According to the Japanese news site Nikkei Murata Manufacturing is expected to begin mass production of small multi-layer ceramic capacitors occupying one-fifth of the space of existing capacitors, but also ten times the electrical storage capacity.
Each individual capacitor measures 0.25 mm by 0.1
5G technology is more powerful than 4G technology and requires larger batteries and more efficient components. Murata's new capacitors give smartphone designers such as Apple the freedom to use this space for other important components in the "iPhone", eg. B. for higher capacity batteries.
There is no confirmation that Apple will use Murata's technology, but it is likely that Murata is a supplier to Apple. Murata also works with other smartphone companies like Huawei.
Apple plans to introduce at least three new iPhones in the fall of 2020. All should be equipped with 5G technology, so that the "iPhone" can take advantage of 5G networks and compete better with Android smartphones.
