Huawei is "open" in selling 5G chips to Apple

Since major players like Samsung and Qualcomm declined to sell 5G modems to Apple and they can't produce their own yet, a Chinese rival is now "open" to help the American company.

Huawei said that they are open to deliver its homegrown 5G platforms only to Apple. It sounds strange, but Huawei could be Apple's best option for now.

Business is business?

Huawei claimed that they are least 1 year ahead of its rivals in the 5G race. Balong 5000, the company's 5G chip for the Huawei Mate X is a multi-mode chip with 2G, 3G, 4G, and 5G support.

Competitors such as Qualcomm only has 5G with no 2G, 3G, and 4G support. It simply means that phones with current Snapdragon X50 5G modem needs other chips with 4G and lower support.

Balong 5000 is also the fastest 5G chip in the world with up to 4.6 Gbps download speeds.

Analysts are also doubtful that Intel will deliver XMM 8160 5G systems for either of the next two generations of iPhones.

The only other option of Apple is MediaTek's 5G technology. There are also rumors that Apple could make serious moves to develop its own in-house smartphone modems.

If Apple will consider Huawei, we might see future iPhones with better connectivity than ever.
