Apple will launch the first 5G iPhone in 2020 using a Qualcomm modem, reports Nikkei. The two companies announced an end to all litigation and a multi-year chip deal earlier today.

The two U.S. companies have been negotiating details of the settlement for weeks, sources told the Nikkei Asian Review. They have agreed to drop all litigation worldwide and struck a six-year licensing agreement, that will ensure the launch of the first 5G iPhone in 2020.

"It is too late for Apple to use Qualcomm's chips this year, but for 2020 it will purchase modem chips, including 5G modem chips, from the chipmaker for iPhones after finalizing the deal," a source told the site.

Apple has already started testing Qualcomm's 5G modem and has purportedly asked some suppliers to test the modem as well.

Following news of the deal, Intel announced it would exit the 5G smartphone modem business. Shares of Qualcomm surged closing the day 23.21% higher.
