    They announced the SD 865.

    They will require manufacturers who ship the SD865 to ship their separate 5G baseband chip.

    Obviously they have an economic interest in expanding the installed base of 5G devices as quickly as possible.

    Most manufacturers are probably not going to object, since they're looking to sell $700 and up devices and 5G hype may make it easier to make the sale, even if 5G networks are in a pitiful state right now.

    Isn't it's a separate whole 2g3g4g5g modem instead of separate 5g only?
