A few days ago, rumours were circulating that, due to delays by Intel in the development of 5G chips, it is possible that the iPhone with this technology will be delayed and will not arrive in 2020. However, Engadget indicates that Huawei might be interested in selling his 5G chips to Apple .
Huawei developed its 5G Balong 5000 chipset, but as with its other processors, the company refused to supply its components to third parties . However, a source close to the Chinese firm spoke to Engadget, claiming that Huawei is now “open” to selling its 5G chips, although only to Apple.
At AppleApples plans to launch an iPhone 5G in 2020 could be changed by Intel’s delays
As we mentioned a few days ago, although rumors indicate that the iPhone with 5G connectivity will arrive on the market in 2020, Intel could interrupt the plans of Cupertino’s firm , since so far it has not met the deadlines for the development of the 5G chip.
In order to introduce its smartphone with such technology, Apple has been in talks with Samsung and Mediatek about 5G chips, but it is not clear if that will happen. But the issue doesn’t end there. Qualcomm president Cristiano Amon recently said they would be willing to collaborate again with Apple.
The Huawei Balong 5000 may be suitable for Apple devices with support for U-6 and mmWave 5G networks , along with backward compatibility with LTE networks. However, so far there is no news that Apple has expressed any interest in Huawei technology.
