    If this is true, then we have at-least one thing that intel offers, which seem somewhat consumer friendly.

    5G non-standalone (NSA) modes, plus

    Hehe, I see that NSA already got their backdoor

    According to Charlie, it isn't true. I'm starting to wonder if Intel are just losing it completely between the fake modems, missing 10nm and cobbled together CPUs.

    "Launches" is a very strong word for something that they cannot even show off real silicon for, presumably made on a process that Intel has major issues with, especially when you are making tens of millions of chips for iPhones.

    Also indicates the cancellation of 8060, which indicates major design issues for that not to be worth continuing with.

    Re: Intel launches the XMM 8160 5G multimode modem

    how much choice do phone manufacturers have if they go with a snapdragon soc, is the radio part of that or can they mix and mat h with a SD processor and Intel radio?

    Until i see real silicon i aint believing crap from them. the previous modem was canceled. they using the same promo shot (compaire the fingers to see they just photoshopped in the new "model" name)

    Basically, this is made for Apple. First solution from Qualcomm doesn't have the modem integrated into the SoC (it usually is), so it could be matched to work with this chip from Intel. But in any case, XMM8160 will be slower than X50, probably worse on signal strength and late to market compared to the competition.
