Apple's upcoming 6.1-inch iPhone will smash all iPhone sales records

2018 iPhones to rely solely on Intel baseband chips, KGI claims

Apple is known to not rely on a specific partner as well so if anyone is thinking that Intel will be on board exclusively for a long time, you might be wrong.

As reported by AppleInsider, Ming-Chi Kuo has issued an investor note, where he claims that Apple's LCD-based edgeless iPhone will become more popular than the company's OLED-based models.

"There is speculation that Apple might drop Qualcomm altogether for its next generation phones and I think that's part of the reason the stock is down today", said Angelo Zino, an analyst from CFRA Research. However, Apple is a very shrewd operator and could offer Qualcomm a share in the chip supply in return for an out of court settlement in the patent lawsuit settlement. Although Intel's new modems will be equipped with this functionality, whether or not Apple incorporates it still remains to be seen.

The 2018 iPhone lineup is back in the news, once again courtesy the usually reliable KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. Intel's previous chips lacked support for CDMA. Qualcomm has also asked the US International Trade Commission that Apple products should be banned from import into the US over the patent violations. Shah said he expects Apple to move from Broadcom to Qorvo Inc. for a socket component, and Qorvo seemed to confirm new Apple business on the horizon in an earnings report last week that sent shares near record highs.

Korea allegedly uses embassy in Berlin for procurement

Between 2011 and 2016, in fact, Qualcomm was the exclusive modem provider for the iPhone.

Apple could even choose to go halfway and change suppliers for some of the chips it uses. Qualcomm is expected to aggressively pursue orders from Chinese smartphone makers to offset the lost orders. Benchmark scores have revealed in the past that iPhones running Qualcomm modems performed better than those running Intel chips.

There's another potential fly in the ointment, which is that Intel may lag behind Qualcomm when it comes to having modems that support 5G networks.

Qualcomm and Apple have been working together for quite some time now.
