One of the leaders in the smartphone industry, Apple, as a result of problems with Qualcomm for many years wanted to turn to a new modem supplier.
After this decision, he considered Intel but stated that Intel might be inadequate. According to the latest information, the company plans to incorporate Intel’s 5G department.
Apple, the Wall Street Journal reported that Intel does not focus on the smartphone modem is holding talks to get the job. An agreement is expected to be reached and announced next week.
Intel said it will quit the 5G mobile modem business in April. Apple, on this phone to use Qualcomm’un modems again in a surprise agreement with Qualcomm’s, had made talks. Intel’s CEO Bob Swan showed Intel’s disagreement with Apple as the reason for leaving the modem business, saying that when there were no Apple customers, the 5G modem business wasn’t much of a future.
Meanwhile, according to a report by Bloomberg, Apple, Intel’s 5G modems within the time frame designed by the iPhone can not deliver within the framework of Qualcomm’s agreed to Qualcomm’s despite years of legal disputes. According to information, Apple has offered at least $ 1 billion for Intel’s employees and patents in the 5G modems department. The result is expected to be announced next week.
As a result of the dispute between Apple and Qualcomm, Intel said it was looking for a new receiver in the modem business. Apple has acted as a sensible buyer on this ‘announcement’.
Before overcoming the dispute between Apple and Qualcomm, Intel was the only third-party manufacturer of modems on Apple’s 2018 iPhones. In addition, Apple was Intel’s only major customer for the modem. It was even known that almost all Android devices preferred Qualcomm’s solutions for modems.
Although Apple entered into a new agreement with Qualcomm, the technology giant was said to develop its own modems. It was thought that the company, which had great success with the A-series processors, would provide a serious success in this regard. Now, including Intel, Apple, Intel’s employees and patents will start to produce their own 5G modems and will use these modems in their phones.
