Qualcomm officially announces Snapdragon x50 modem based on 5G Technology

"Snapdragon X24 LTE modem sets a major mobile industry milestone, created to provide enhanced mobile broadband and deliver an extremely important gigabit coverage layer for commercial 5G networks and mobile devices that are expected to start launching in 2019", said Serge Willenegger, senior vice president and general manager, 4G/5G and Industrial IOT, Qualcomm Wireless.

This step-up from today's fastest gigabit LTE capabilities will be an important way to close the speed gap when 5G comes in and blows 4G away.

The X24 achieves the speeds it can because it supports "up to 7x carrier aggregation on the downlink" as well as 4X4 MIMO on up to five aggregated carriers.

"The wireless industry is going to compete on LTE network into the next decade", T-Mobile Chief Technology Officer Neville Ray said on a call with analysts last week.

The new modem follows the 1.2Gbps X20, which is the modem in the Samsung Galaxy S9's Snapdragon 845 chipset.

"Qualcomm Technologies is deeply committed to helping our customers deliver next-generation 5G mobile experiences to consumers, which requires enhanced mobile broadband 5G NR connectivity enabled by 5G NR networks, mobile devices and the Snapdragon X50 5G modem".

As the industry moves towards delivering 5G networks and smartphone modems in 2019, the new Snapdragon X24 LTE modem's promise to deliver fiber-like Internet speeds delivered wirelessly. The end result? Higher peak speeds, even on a congested network, which means less time your smartphone has to spend using all that power to sustain an active connection.

X50 modems are expected to hit commercial devices in the first half of 2019. The fact that Qualcomm showcased 1.24 Gbps speed in October at the company's 4G - 5G summit in Hong Kong and as soon as four months later it managed to demonstrate the same modem with 4.51 Gbps speed. Additional system capacity improvements are made possible through support of Full Dimension Multi-Input Multi-Output (FD-MIMO), a Massive MIMO technology that is foundational to future 5G NR networks.

On the part of uplink support, the Snapdragon X24 has three carrier aggregation at a frequency of 20MHz, two LTE streams at maximum speeds of 106Mbps, and up to 256-QAM.

"In 2017, NETGEAR and Telstra launched the world's first commercial Gigabit LTE device and we are pleased to work with Telstra, Qualcomm Technologies and Ericsson for the next generation of unparalleled mobile devices".

Well, apart from OnePlus, other OEMs like ASUS, HMD Global, HTC, LG, OPPO, Sony, Vivo and Xiaomi too have teamed up with Qualcomm for use of their Snapdragon X50 5G modem in their devices.

Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) can offer better mobile experiences such as 360-degree video, connected cloud computing, more entertainment and instant apps.
