Consumers could see the next generation of mobile PCs with 5G connectivity hit the market in the second half of next year.

Intel is currently working with Dell, HP, Lenovo and Microsoft to try and develop such devices.

Many tech companies are now rolling out 5G pilots and concepts ahead of the expected arrival of faster, more advanced connectivity sometime in 2019. 5G is expected to support download speeds of around 10 gigabits per second, enabling a wide variety of new services and technologies like virtual reality, augmented reality, autonomous vehicles, smart cities and more.

The first 5G connected devices arriving on the market are likely to be smartphones hence Intel is working to build its technology into those devices. Intel has entered into a partnership with Unigroup Spreadtrum & RDA, a subsidiary of China's Tsinghua Unigroup.
