5G iPhone Is the “Number One Priority,” Qualcomm Says
Apple is projected to launch its very first iPhone with 5G capabilities next year, and Qualcomm president Cristiano Amon has recently revealed that bringing this device to the market has become “priority number one” for the company.
“Priority number one of this relationship with Apple is how to launch their phone as fast as we can. That’s the priority,” Amon was quoted as saying by PCMag.
Apple and Qualcomm settled their long-time patent dispute earlier this year, and the two signed a multi-year licensing deal that would have the Cupertino-based tech giant use Qualcomm chips on the 5G iPhone.
Just one iPhone with 5G support?
People familiar with the matter suggested that the first iPhone with 5G capabilities would land in 2020, and now Amon confirms that several iPhone generations will ship with Qualcomm modems for 5G support.
