As soon as the 5G networks are widely available sometime next year, and Qualcomm, the world’s largest supplier of mobile-phone chips, and its rivals, an advantage, since the phones require more and more chips to gain the speed boost.

Apple, Qualcomm, client, and has not said when it will launch 5G. But, We have a Chief Financial Officer, Akash Palkhiwala, said on an investor call, there would be two “points” for the 5G chips will be next year.
