Intel Out of 5G Smartphone Business.



The American multinational corporation the previous day announced their clear exit from Apple. This was through the Intel CEO Bob Swan who claimed that they were very excited about the opportunity in the 5G and the 'codification' of the network by the Apple Company, but apparently, the smartphone modem business for that 5G project seemed not to have clear profits and positive returns.

The corporation is thus according to their CEO keen on looking for other opportunities for their 4G and 5G modems in PCs, internet devices, and other data-centric devices. The 5G, however, stands out to be the strategic priority through Intel, as the corporation claims that they have created a quality portfolio of wireless products and great intellectual property; and so the firm looks forward to greater opportunities in the wide range of data-centric platforms and machines in the 5G globe.

To put it more clearly, the Apple won't use Intel's 8161 in launching its 2020 phones as planned before, and they're likely to use Qualcomm's pipeline of 5G modems which they consider to be better modems that initial Intel's modems. Apple seemed to have settled settle with Qualcomm of late after their long term partnership with Intel which has been a long way since 2005 when Apple under the management of Steve Jobs as the CEO officially announced their partnership. However, with bringing Qualcomm into the partnership, Intel seemed to have been into the pressure of competition which has likely led to them opting out of Apple on the realization that their 5G models won't be applicable by Apple in launching their line of phones next year.

It's however important keeping in mind that Apple's partnership with Intel by 2005 was for a transition of changing the CPU of Macintosh Apple computers from PowerPC processors to Intel x86 processors officially at Worldwide Developers Conference. The PowerPC microprocessors used to supply for the Macintosh computers by Freescale (Motorola) and IBM.
