• Qualcomm unveils 2Gbps X24 modem, hinting at 7nm Snapdragon 855 for the Galaxy S10

    3 monthes ago - By Phone Arena

    Despite its spats with Apple, and the subsequent loss of one of its biggest clients to Intel, Qualcomm remains the top dog when it comes to cellular connectivity, and it just announced the first wireless modem that can hit 2 Gbps 4G LTE downloads, the X24, and the first chip announced to use the 7nm production process, ready to go into "commercial devices" by year's end.
    That's much faster than the X20 in Snapdragon 845 which is arriving with Galaxy S9. That one can take advantage of up to 1.2 Gbps speeds, just like the current top modem, found ...

    Fiber-like internet and a glimpse of our 5G future are coming to smartphones in 2019

    3 monthes ago - By TechRadar

    A new smartphone modem from Qualcomm has launched, boasting speeds of up to 2Gbps and giving us a glimpse of the 5G future we can expect to see rolling out on phones from next year. The Snapdragon X24 LTE modem is not only the first modem to offer 2Gbps speeds, it's also the first to use the 7nm FinFET process. That means it's smaller and more efficient than the previous seven generations of the chip. Qualcomm says that the fiber-like internet speeds that the X24 LTE modem is capable of will give us "mobile experiences such as immersive 360-degree video, connected cloud computing, rich...

    Before we get to 5G, Qualcomm is debuting a new LTE chip with twice the speed of today's phones.
    It's often said that the arc of a mature industry showcases its best products right before it becomes obsolete. This is conveyed as an "S-curve", where after a burst of investment and innovation, a particular category plateaus and makes way for whatever comes afterward.
    We're in that stage for 4G mobile service, better known as LTE. We're on the cusp of seeing its successor, 5G, mature enough to ship in phones and practically everything else that connects to the internet, but one purveyor of...

    3 monthes ago - By The Verge

    Qualcomm has announced its newest LTE modem for smartphones ahead of Mobile World Congress, the Snapdragon X24, which promises to reach top download speeds of up to 2Gbps.
    The company claims that the X24 is the first Category 20 LTE modem that can support those kinds of speeds, as well as the first 7nm process chip on the market. At top speed, it's twice as fast as the company's previous gigabit LTE modem, and while it's still unlikely to see those speeds in real life - which is more of a carrier-side problem - improving the technology in devices should still lead to faster speeds...
