Intel has finally announced its plan for the next generation network, new XMM 8160 5G modem. XMM 8160 5G modem will launch more than a half year early, with availability expected in the back half of 2019 with the first devices using the chip coming in early 2020.

XMM 8160 modem will provide the download speed of 6Gbp after all, the higher download speeds are the point of 5G and it will support new 5G radio operation in standalone and non-standalone modes, as well as legacy support for 4G, 3G and 2G networks all in one chipset. The company also claims to supports new millimeter wave spectrum and 5G deployments in the sub-6GHz band.

Intel may have a lot of catching up to do when it comes to getting companies to actually use it's 5G modem because currently Samsung, Nokia, Sony, Xiaomi, Oppo, Vivo, HTC, Asus, LG, Sharp, ZTE, Oneplus are working with qualcomm and its Snapdragon X50 5G NR modems, while Samsung and Huawei both working on their own in house 5G modems.

Apple recently switched to using Intel modems for its 2018 iphone XS and XR phones and apple is reportedly planning on sticking with Intel's chips for whenever it does make the jump to 5G.

That is said to be with its 2020 iphone models, which would make sense if intel releases the modem to hardware partners in late 2019.
