The primary 5G iPhone is probably going to utilize an Intel modem, the 8161, and it could hit the stores in 2020, as per a report in the Fast Company.
On the off chance that everything goes as arranged, Intel will be the sole supplier of iPhone modems, said the report.
For prototyping and testing the 5G iPhone, Intel is supposedly chipping away at an antecedent to the 8161 called the 8060.
To expand transistor thickness for more speed and proficiency, Intel is probably going to create the 8161 utilizing its 10-nanometre process.
The execution of 8060 seems to have set off somewhat strain among Apple and Intel because of “warm dispersal issues” that would both raise the temperature and hurt battery life.
Nonetheless, Apple’s current issues with Intel are not sufficiently genuine to make Apple swing to Qualcomm for the supply of 5G modems, said the Fast Company report, in view of its source. Apple declined to remark on the report.
The main 5G cell phone is normal one year from now.
Android telephones from such producers as Xiaomi, Oppo and Huawei will contain 5G modem chips made by Qualcomm which has asserted that its modems have dealt with the warmth dispersal issues, the report said.
