Qualcomm to Accelerate 5G Rollout with new Multimode 5G Modem Chip

Qualcomm announced its new and advanced multimode 5G modem for global 5G rollout and supports all major frequency bands.

The second generation 5G New Radio (NR) modem is called Snapdragon X55 5G modem. It is designed to 5G enable a broad range of devices including premium smartphones, mobile devices, fixed wireless access points, extended reality devices, and automotive applications.

It is a 7-nanometer single-chip integrated 5G to 2G multimode modem. The newly introduced modem supports 5G NR mmWave and sub-6 GHz spectrum bands with up to 7 gigabits per second (Gbps) download speeds and 3 Gbps upload speeds over 5G, and Category 22 LTE with up to 2.5 Gbps LTE download speeds, the announcement said.

Executive Opinion

President, Qualcomm, Cristiano Amon, said, "Qualcomm Technologies is spearheading the first wave of 5G launches with our first generation 5G mobile platform. With significant evolution in capabilities and performance, our second generation commercial 5G modem is a true testament to the maturity and leadership of our 5G technology. We expect our 5G platform to accelerate 5G commercial momentum and power virtually all 5G launches in 2019 while significantly expanding the global 5G rollout footprint"

Snapdragon X55 Usages & Advantages

For the next generation of smartphones and mobile devices that require power efficient connectivity, Snapdragon X55 supports 100 MHz envelope tracking technology, and adaptive antenna tuning for 5G sub-6 GHz. Thus it allows OEM to design 5G multimode smartphones and mobile devices for all major frequency bands in 5G.

The Snapdragon X55 modem also supports dynamic spectrum sharing between 4G and 5G bands. Thus telecom operators holding 4G spectrum can deliver both 4G & 5G services dynamically, thereby accelerating 5G rollout.

With 5G technology, users can experience low latency while dealing with cloud computing, highly responsive multiplayer gaming, immersive 360-degree video, and instant apps

The Snapdragon X55 modem will be commercially available in late 2019.
