iPhone 7 rumors: 2016 iPhone to pack LTE chips from Intel

A new report by VentureBeat claims that the iPhone produced in 2016, believed to be called the iPhone 7, are set to be equipped with wireless modem chips supplied by Intel and not Qualcomm.

A “special” version of the smartphone is reportedly set be marketed “to emerging markets in Asia and Latin America.”

The Intel 7360 LTE modem chip is said to be capable of delivering up to 450Mbps downlink and offers support for 29 LTE bands.

Rumors about the iPhone 7 continue to emerge. Last month a report claimed that improved sapphire technology could be present on the next iPhone display.
