According to a new report from IAM, Intel seems to be planning to auction patents related to its wireless mobile connection.
It is known that this plan was introduced by Intel after deciding to withdraw from the 5G smartphone model business last April. Previously, Intel stopped researching and developing 5G modem technology after Apple and Qualcomm reached a mutual agreement. And most likely the future iPhone will only use Qualcomm's 5G modem.
Rumors have it that Apple and Intel have held discussions about Intel's acquisition of modem developers in Germany. Both negotiated with each other at the beginning of the month when Intel planned to sell its modem business into different pieces.
Intel is aiming to sell 8,500 assets from its patent portfolio, including 6,000 patents related to 3G, 4G and 5G mobile standards and an additional 1,700 patents on deployment technology cord.
The auction that Intel plans to completely separate from its efforts to sell smartphone modem business. However, according to IAM's speculation, there will be interested customers who will spend money to buy both. In addition, there will also be the possibility of a group of companies working together to purchase these patents for general use.
If you buy Intel's modem business, or patent, or even both, Apple will go a long way in developing its own mobile chips. Currently, Apple is still studying them to reduce dependence on supply companies like Qualcomm. However, it will take a few more years for Apple chips to be ready to integrate into iPhones or other devices.
