In the 2018 Mobile World Congress (MWC) event in Barcelona, Spain, from February 26 to March 1, Intel will introduce some laptops that use Intel XMM 8000 modems.
The introductory laptop is the result of cooperation with Dell, HP, Lenovo, and Microsoft. Similar to what Qualcomm introduced last month, these laptops will have the ability to connect with faster wireless internet thanks to 5G.
The Intel has yet to provide the 5G demonstration details that will be done. Little leak that laptop supported with Intel 5G modem in it immediately marketed in mid-2019.
Another outstanding news is that Intel has also partnered with China's mobile semiconductor manufacturing Spreadtrum for manufacturing Intel XMM 8000 modems in 2019.
That is, most likely Intel will again play again in the mobile industry as one of the processor manufacturers for smartphones. As is known, Qualcomm to date is enough to dominate the processor market for smartphones.
