Intel has decided to partner with MediaTek to develop, certify and support 5G solutions for the next generation of PC devices, with the first products are set to be available in early 2021.

As part of the partnership, Intel will define a 5G solution specification, including a 5G modem, to be developed and delivered by MediaTek. And Dell and HP are expected to be the first to deliver laptops enabled with Intel and MediaTek’s 5G solution.

"5G is poised to unleash a new level of computing and connectivity that will transform the way we interact with the world."
