CES 2019: Qualcomm Will Power More than 30 5G Mobile Devices This Year
Qualcomm announced strong 5G device momentum with more than 30 5G design-wins, the majority of which are smartphones, from global OEMs featuring the Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform and the Snapdragon X50 5G modem family. In addition, all customer OEMs and nearly all the devices related to these 5G design-wins use Qualcomm RF Front End (RFFE) solutions.
Snapdragon 855 is the first commercial 5G mobile platform designed to enable the original wave of commercial 5G mobile devices starting early this year. With the Snapdragon X50 5G modem family and Qualcomm RFFE solutions, devices powered by the Snapdragon 855 support both sub-6 and mmWave spectrum, allowing multi-gigabit speeds and low-latency that were unfeasible in mobile so far and will unlock transformative 5G experiences.
“We believe that virtually all 5G mobile devices launched in 2019 will be built on Qualcomms’ solutions,” said Cristiano Amon, president, Qualcomm. “5G will pave the way for next-generation immersive experiences, including near-instant access to cloud services, multiplayer VR gaming, shopping with AR, and real-time video collaboration. The world is ready for the 5G smartphone premium experience and Qualcomm Technologies, along with our OEM, operator and infrastructure partners, will be first delivering those experiences in 2019.”
