Intel has pledged to unveil a concept 5G-connected PC - a detachable 2-in-1 - at Mobile World Congress next week, livestreaming video to it via 5G.

As the first Always Connected PCs running on Qualcomm's Snapdragon platform will start shipping later this quarter, Intel can't really afford to let its competitor lead the "connected PC" narrative.

Intel has revealed it is actively collaborating with Dell, HP, Lenovo and Microsoft to bring 5G connectivity to Windows PCs by next year. Though 5G is still a ways off in terms of deployment, it's clear that Intel wants to be one of the companies there at the start, so these MWC demonstrations should be just the beginning for the company.

"This shows the building blocks being put into place", said Rob Topol, Intel's general manager for 5G technologies, in a conference call with reporters.




And on the Wi-Fi front, the company is set to showcase an ultra-thin PC which boasts 802.11ax connectivity, the next big step forward for Wi-Fi. Intel says its 5G solution for Windows PCs will not only bring substantial amount of data needing processing, but it will also allow PC makers to bring new experiences to users.

Intel introduced its upcoming portfolio of commercial 5G modems, including the XMM 8000 series - Intel's first family of 5G radio multi-mode commercial modems - in November a year ago. Together, the two organizations plan to develop a 5G smartphone platform based on Intel modems for the Chinese market.

"Intel is investing deeply across its wireless portfolio and partners to bring 5G-connected mobile PCs to market, with benefits for users, like high-quality video on-the-go, high-end gaming, and seamless connections as users traverse Wi-Fi and cellular networks", the company said in a statement.

5G is not just another generation of wireless connectivity, it promises new opportunities for technology innovation across the computing and connectivity landscape from the cloud to the network and the client. As part of a partnership with Deutsche Telecom and Huawei, Intel will also be performing its first 5G NR interoperability demonstration during the show.
