April 15, 2019 | Monday



Huawei's 5G chips "open" to sell on another rival smartphone creator, Apple. That marks a notable curve made by the Chinese tech giant. As part of Huawei's sustaining its very own intellectual assets.

The Chinese tech giant came as the world's biggest network equipment creator. Within the consumer market, it enters in a very short period of time showcasing its own smartphones. But it went up faster putting its brand as the third-largest seller in its market share.

The tech giant began selling its phones at a low cost. However, from the previous years, it focuses on increasing its market share within the high-end of its market. Huawei then goes against other tech giants including Samsung and Apple.

Huawei developed its own chips, and that includes the hierarchical network development. The company developed its own modem providing 5G connectivity. That with processor powering its devices. The 5G network has been the next-era mobile internet, providing very high-speed connectivity in delivering data.

Meanwhile, Huawei's founder and CEO, Ren Zhengfei compliments Steve Jobs saying that he was "great not because he created Apple, but because he created an era, the mobile internet era."

During an interview, Zhengfei said that Huawei considers selling its developed 5G chips to Apple.

As of now, Apple hasn't released any device that could support the 5G network. Beforehand, Apple used modem from Intel and Qualcomm on its iPhones. However, the latest device only uses silicon. As of now, Apple and Qualcomm focus on a range of legal battles regarding its limitations.

As Qualcomm developed a modem supporting 5G network, Intel is not near to hit its market until the year 2020. As a result, Huawei has a chance of becoming an alternative choice for Apple if it plans to release its 5G supported mobile phone this year. As of now, Apple declines to comment on the matter.

Meanwhile, the Chinese tech giant still faces big political pressures mainly from the United States for its national security risk which could carry out espionage for the Chinese government.
