Apple Inc.'s new iPhone 12 is expected to boost the number of 5G users in South Korea to over 10 million by the end of the year, Yonhap reported on Thursday citing local analysts.

South Korea appears to be ready to lead the global race to deploy the latest-generation network, with a rather impressive August's indicator of 8.7 million 5G users, accounting for 12% of the country's total 70 million mobile accounts, according to the national Ministry of Science and ICT.

However, according to Apple, the mmWave version of the iPhone 12 will only be available in the United States. Millimeter-wave stands for a short-range, high-frequency network technology that allows 5G network to reach its maximum capacity.
