Apple discusses buying 5G modems from Intel

Apple may be close to making a deal to buy Intel-made mobile modem production, The Wall Street Journal reports. The agreement will be announced next week.

In April, Intel announced it would quit mobile modems (chips that support cellular networks) after Apple reached an agreement with Qualcomm, as a result of which the smartphones of the Cupertino company will be equipped with Snapdragon modems. Intel CEO Bob Swan said that without Apple, as a client of the company, there was no point in continuing production.

Intel has reportedly begun searching for a buyer for its dial-up business. Apple is interested in it. Recent rumors about working inside the company on their own modem models confirm this information.

Part of Intel’s business, including a portfolio of patents and key employees, is estimated at $ 1 billion or more.
