Apple teams up with Samsung & Qualcomm for 5G iPhones
The Tech giant is all set to release the iPhones with 5G network connectivity in the year 2020. Samsung and Qualcomm are going to provide Apple with the chipsets to curate 5G iPhones. By the looks of it, Apple will ship a total of 195-200 million units of 5G iPhone in a couple of years. Ming-Chi Kou is the distinctive Apple expert who gave a heads up to people regarding Apple’s take on 5G iPhones.
Earlier in the month of April, Qualcomm and Apple came up with a settlement of their long impending legal war. Judging by the settlements, the legal battle was due to the dispute in patents and licensing of the never-to-be-heard-or-seen amount. With the settlement, Apple said that it would buy chips from the mobile semiconductor giant Qualcomm, according to CNBC.
Ming-Chi Kou is the security analyst of the TF international. According to Kou, Apple will most likely feature 5G chips by Qualcomm which will focus on mmWave markets. And at the same time, Apple will feature Samsung’s chipset for the Sub-6GHz markets. Apple fears that if it doesn’t collaborate with any 5G baseband maker, the company will face severe backlash.
