does Not launch the products for ‘smartphone’ planned for 2020 and will focus on other spaces such as the network infrastructure.

The market of modems 5G have a contender for less from now on. The giant of the chip Intel has decided to withdraw from the battle, and no longer cast products planned for 2020.

“We are very excited about the opportunity in 5G and ‘cloudificación’ of the network, but in the business of modems for smartphone has made clear there is not a clear path to profitability and a positive result”, has declared its CEO, Bob Swan.

This appreciation leads to Intel to renounce to this business and focus on other areas such as network infrastructure 5G. This mobile technology of new generation “continues to be a strategic priority in Intel”, says Swan, who notes that “our team has developed a valuable portfolio of wireless products and intellectual property”.

Intel will explore the opportunities of 5G to computers, the internet of things and devices focused on data, whereas smartphones will focus on the 4G modems.
