In the time that is available to many manufacturers to launch its smart phones that are compatible with the 5G later this year, it is expected to wait for Apple until 2020 before doing the same step. And now, according to a new report released recently from the news agency Reuters, it seems that we must expect the advent of the Apple phone that is compatible with the 5G with modem of Samsung or MediaTek with the knowledge that this information comes directly from the mouth of Apple.
This came during the testimony of Tony Belvins, which is primarily responsible for the supply chain in Apple, as part of the legal aid the company’s continued with Qualcomm. Has revealed Mr Tony Belvins to Apple TV think of a use for chips season of the Samsung or MediaTek in the iPhones future. This was not altogether surprising, there have been reports in the past stating that Apple are considering using chip modem, a subsidiary of MediaTek in its smart phones next.
In 2017, it was reported that Apple was working with Intel on the modem the 5G, but the report revealed last year that Apple decided not to use the modem and 5G, a subsidiary of Intel. In the case if the reports are true, it is logical that the need to import chips season of another company, such as MediaTek or Samsung, which launched the season Exynos Modem 5100 in the past year to be the first modem 5G compatible with the standards of the 3GPP.
Anyway, given that the iPhone is compatible with the 5G won’t arrive most likely until 2020 at the earliest, we believe that we will have to wait and see what is the company selected by Apple to deal with it in the end.
