Huawei open to selling its 5G chips to Apple says report

first_img $999 Best Buy Boost Mobile Aug 31 • Your phone screen is gross. Here’s how to clean it Aug 31 • iPhone XR vs. iPhone 8 Plus: Which iPhone should you buy? Huawei’s foldable Mate X phone uses the company’s in-house Balong 5000 5G modem chip. Andrew Hoyle/CNET The future of 5G on the iPhone is getting messy.Starting in 2016, Apple used chips from both Intel and Qualcomm to power its iPhone’s modem, connecting it to 4G cellular networks. But in 2018, the company switched entirely to Intel’s wireless chips for its $999 iPhone XS, $1,099 iPhone XS Max and $749 iPhone XR. And it’s believed the next iPhone will also use only Intel chips as well.That’s led to speculation the iPhone won’t be able to offer new 5G wireless technology until at least 2020. In the meantime, Apple and Qualcomm are battling in court over patent licensing, with the latest trial scheduled for next week in San Diego. While that court battle continues, it’s unlikely Qualcomm will supply 5G chips for iPhones anytime soon.While that drama plays out, the Chinese tech giant Huawei says it has a solution for Apple. The company said it’s “open” to selling its own 5G Balong 5000 chipsets to Apple, Engadget reported on Monday, citing an unnamed “source with knowledge of the situation.” Huawei declined to comment. Apple didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment. While Huawei may offer an alternative with its 5G modem, which is used in the Mate X phone, the company reportedly sells almost none of its wireless chips to other device makers because of national security concerns.Lawmakers in Washington consider Huawei a security threat, in part because of its close link with the Chinese government. As a result, federal agencies are banned from using the company’s products. The US has also encouraged other countries not to use Huawei tech with their 5G networks. As a result, Huawei devices are hard to come by in the US, despite it being one of the top phone makers in the world. For Apple, though, the lack of 5G wireless technology could be a liability. Every other major phone maker will have a 5G phone available by 2019.First published April 8, 1:13 p.m. PT.Update 2:30 p.m. PT: Adds details about Apple’s legal problems with Qualcomm, and Huawei national security concerns.

2020 Lincoln Aviator offers slightly better fuel economy than Cadillac XT6

first_img SUVs Luxury cars Future Cars Enlarge ImageTalk about getting off to a good start. Andrew Krok/Roadshow When a car is more efficient, less expensive and more powerful than its also-new competition, that sounds like a pretty good start. Lincoln should have plenty to celebrate this week, then, now that fuel economy numbers are out for the base-trim 2020 Aviator.According to newly published EPA figures, the 2020 Lincoln Aviator in base, rear-wheel drive trim is rated at 18 miles per gallon city, 26 mpg highway and 21 combined. It’s still more expensive than your average vehicle, which is why the EPA estimates that Aviator owners will spend $2,250 more in fuel costs over five years when compared to the average new car.That’s not bad, considering its engine is a 3.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V6 that puts out 400 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. Its starting price is $52,195, which includes destination, and adding AWD will tack another $2,500 on to the price, likely lowering fuel economy a bit in the process.Let’s compare that to the Aviator’s also-new competitor, the 2020 Cadillac XT6. It’s rated just a smidge lower than the Aviator at 18 mpg city, 25 highway and 20 combined. Yet, it’s a more expensive proposition at $53,690 including destination. Front-wheel drive is standard, as opposed to the Aviator’s standard RWD. Most surprising, though, is the huge output delta between these two — the XT6’s naturally-aspirated 3.6-liter V6 only musters 310 hp and 271 lb-ft. Yikes. The XT6 is also down a cog in its automatic transmission, packing 9 compared to the Aviator’s 10.The 2020 Cadillac XT6 goes on sale this summer, around the same time the Aviator does. It’ll be interesting to see how both perform, not only against each other, but against the greater midsize luxury SUV segment. 1:26 Lincoln Cadillac More From Roadshow Review • 2019 Lincoln Navigator: Bigger and better More about 2019 Lincoln Navigator 2020 Lincoln Aviator takes off at LA Auto Show 58 Photos 2020 Lincoln Aviator plug-in hybrid first drive: This changes everything Tags 2020 Lincoln Aviator first drive: Stylish SUV takes flight with smart tech Share your voice 1 2020 Cadillac XT6 first drive: Sometimes ‘more’ is more Comment The sky’s the limit in the 2020 Lincoln Aviator Now playing: Watch this: Lincoln Cadillaclast_img read more
