Intel has been in the market for years and providing new-generation Chips for both, Computers and Smartphones. Today, Intel has confirmed that the settlement between Apple and Qualcomm made them it to quit 5G plans.
About a month ago, Intel has introduced its Thunderbolt 3 with 100W of Power and external graphics card support. However, things have turned out after the chip-maker has announced that they are not active anymore with their 5G modems due to Apple and Qualcomm’s collaboration.
Intel CEO revealed in an Interview with the Wall Street Journal about quitting the manufacturing of their 5G Modems. Intel has clearly mentioned the settlement between Apple and Qualcomm.
The original news came in the market after the successful announcement of this agreement on April 16th, when Qualcomm and Apple have come together for manufacturing the next-generation 5G Modems for Wireless devices such as Smartphones and other devices. Intel had already confirmed at that time about quitting the race of manufacturing 5G Modems.
Well, today, the company has officially confirmed that they are not manufacturing the 5G Modems anymore. Adding more about their future plans, he has stated that they will keep on providing the super-fastest 4G Modems for the upcoming iPhones of Apple.
Further, he explained that the company is already on the track of launching the next version XMM 7660 modem.
After concluding all these reports, we are pretty much sure that Apple is not going to provide 5G enabled devices in this year. The new iPhones will support 4G connections only as of now. And we won’t be able to see the 5G iPhones anytime this year. For that, we have to wait for one more year as Apple and Qualcomm have announced their collaboration manufacturing the 5G Modems for upcoming iPhones.
Well, Intel has not quitted the 5G race completely, the company is planning to come up with an alternative and they will keep on manufacturing the new-generation chips for the future devices. More details will be revealed soon.
