This differs somewhat from the rumors published on several occasions, where they claim that the company is working on this project, and that its launch would take place in 2020. However, Ming-Chi Kuo indicated that this accessory would possibly go into mass production by the end of 2019, although it was possible that the ramp-up would be slightly delayed until the second quarter of 2020 .
