Huawei is now open to sell its 5G modem to Apple

Huawei is now open to sell its 5G modem to Apple

Major OEMs like Samsung, Huawei, Xiaomi, OnePlus and others have either already launched 5G smartphones, or are working on it right now. Huawei now uses its Balong 5000 5G modem, and it is reported that this chip will be integrated with the Mate 30 series when they officially roll out later this year.

The original claim that Intel would be the company to supply the modem and that it would be ready by 2020 also came from a Fast Company report, back in November.

What's critical about this is Huawei doesn't sell its chips to others, as Qualcomm does. Their Deep Throat says Huawei is open to flogging its 5G chip to Apple, which is noteworthy because it was previously intended exclusively for use in Huawei phones.

A partnership between Apple and Huawei would be unusual considering the fact that the Chinese giant has been accused of stealing intellectual property and copying its rivals products in the past. Instead, it may just be the Intel 5G modem or nothing, at the end of the day.

Hakuna Matata mania just reached full roar: Disney dropped its first full " The Lion King " trailer Wednesday. Disney unveiled a new trailer for the "live-action" remake of the 1994 animated classic.

Not only has the U.S. government banned their federal agencies from using Huawei products, but it has also been encouraging other countries to refrain from using Huawei's technology with their 5G networks.

The relationship between Huawei and Apple is strained, and the Chinese company are embroiled in tensions with the government.

South Korea has also become the first country to have a 5G phone available for purchase. To make matters worse, an analyst from the UBS doesn't believe that Intel will have a "single chip backwards compatible 5G modem" ready in time for Apple to launch a 5G iPhone by 2020. Apple's legal tussle with Qualcomm has negated any possibility of collaboration, while Samsung's 5G technology is hardly compatible with USA carriers.

We know that Apple's own testimony in court that it had previously considered moving away from Intel to supply 5G parts. In this moment of uncertainty, Huawei's entry might be fortunate for Apple, though it is, of course, no less unexpected. In addition to the fact that it would pay an opponent, it could likewise create issues with the USA government.
