Qualcomm unveils 2 Gbps LTE modem

Qualcomm Snapdragon X24 LTE: World's first Cat 20 2Gbps modem set to debut at MWC

The modem's 14nm RF transceiver and QET5100 Envelope Tracker make the X24 the first to support 60 MHz envelope tracking, a technique that continuously adjusts the amplifier's power supply to keep it operating at peak efficiency. Which, I think we can agree, are both desirable.

"We've come up with a suite of intelligent [radio] components so the modem can change the configuration on the fly", Hanna said, which is why the X24 introduced the company's 7nm fab capabilities.

We're in that stage for 4G mobile service, better known as LTE. Qualcomm wasn't really offering us many details here, but my takeaway is that it's going to be down to the choices of its carrier and handset partners to decide which chip is the best fit for them.

You future smartphone could be ridiculously fast even without 5G. It's a logical move for Qualcomm, considering that in the early days of 5G networks, coverage will be somewhat limited - especially for mmWave networks, which will likely only exist in highly trafficked areas at first.

The list of global operators supporting Snapdragon X50 5G Modem for Mobile 5G NR Trials in 2018 includes AT&T, Sprint, Verizon (USA), BT (UK), China Telekom, China mobile, China Unicom - from guess where - China, Deutsche Telekom (Germany), KDDI, NTT Docomo (Japan), Korea Telekom, LG Uplus SK Telekom from Korea, Orange, Vodafone (many countries in Europe), Telecom Italia mobile (TIM) and of course Australia's jewel Telstra. For more details, check out the press release below. On Wednesday, Qualcomm took the wraps off the X24, a new LTE modem that supports download speeds of up to 2Gbps. The Snapdragon X24, on the other hand, is a future-ready modem - setting the ground for 5G connectivity.

The payment was allegedly made to the porn star for a nondisclosure agreement of an alleged sexual encounter with Trump . She hinted during the interview she might not have signed the statement.

Ericsson, Telstra, Qualcomm Technologies and NETGEAR will be showcasing the lightning-fast 2Gbps speeds in a live demonstration at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, February 26-March 1, in hall 2, booth 2O60.

"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".

The X24 is Qualcomm's eighth generation LTE multimode modem and third generation Gigabit LTE solution.

The Snapdragon X24 supports up to seven carrier aggregation (topping things like Samsung's latest Exynos chipsets, which supported six carrier aggregation) and 4x4 MIMO antenna arrays on up to five aggregated LTE carriers, which allow for a theoretical maximum of 20 concurrent LTE streams. This unprecedented feature set is created to allow devices that feature the Snapdragon X24 LTE modem to utilize all spectrum assets available from a mobile operator, whether in licensed spectrum, or with License Assisted Access (LAA).
