Qualcomm Snapdragon 850 To Feature The First Consumer-Based 5G Modem


While our local telecoms companies are giving us 3G speeds on 4G networks, the transition to 5G networks has already begun. A new wireless technology that will multiply the data download speed, among other  improvements compared to 4G.

In theory, throughout 2020, smartphones will have a 5G modem. A connectivity that would be responsible for standardizing the Qualcomm Snapdragon 850 processor thanks to the implementation of the Snapdragon X50 modem.

The next generation of Qualcomm processors aims to become the standard for 5G technology in future smartphones.

So far, all news related to the next generation of 5G wireless networks have been mainly related to the development and implementation of the network infrastructure. That is the innovations that operators and manufacturers of network equipment have offered .

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 850 would be the first mobile processor that will offer standard support for 5G networks.

This means that 5G is very close and Qualcomm would present this processor during the last quarter of this year , following in the footsteps of Intel and its XMM8060 modem.

So,  we be seeing 5G very soon but it will take our network operators years to support it. I hope we won't be skeletons when its finally implemented.
