XMM 8000 series commercial 5G modems to deliver much faster wireless speeds to detachable 2-in-1 devices and laptops. The blue team expects to demonstrate some of the potential of 5G and its progress on producing compatible modems by live-streaming video to a PC over a 5G network at the event.

"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.

Intel will also be showing off the latest steps it has taken with eSIM technology at MWC, and the firm notes that as of last September, all of its modems support eSIM in the consumer and enterprise worlds.

The chip maker is also planning to showcase its new Wi-Fi technology via an ultra-thin PC.

Additionally, Intel will also show off a PC with an 802.11ax Wi-Fi connectivity, which Intel says will play a critical part for the future 5G-connected PCs. The ultimate goal here is to bring gigabit speeds to Windows laptops, according to The Verge.

Meanwhile, earlier this month Qualcomm announced partnerships with 19 mobile device makers and 18 carriers to bring Snapdragon X50 family 5G modems to devices sold across the world, starting in 2019.

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 past year.

It will be interesting to see how the competition between Intel and Qualcomm will push forward the new Always Connected PC category.

While 5G is yet another jump in wireless connectivity, it will bring with it the capability to do mass data-intensive workloads while outside the office.

AT&T and Verizon will start rolling out 5G networks by the end of this year, and T-Mobile will start next year.
