Qualcomm announces next-gen X65 5G modem
Qualcomm has recently announced its upcoming 5G modem promising to have the Snapdragon X65 that’s a successor of Snapdragon X60 from last year, which just begun hitting devices as part of the Snapdragon 888 chipset. Qualcomm guarantees that the new modem will be much faster, with up to 10Gbps speeds support on both non-standalone and standalone 5G networks.
Before the X65 hits any devices, it’ll probably be some time; in case history is any indication, it probably will not appear until the flagship year’s leader Snapdragon launch, which apparently will be announced in December.
Above from 7.5Gbps on last year’s model, the latest 10Gbps maximum download speed is the flashiest spec, even if it generally has no meaning, as virtually no 5G network is able to provide that sort of throughput yet. But it means that there’s a lot of headroom in particular for whenever they can get to that point.
The future improvements’ flexibility is at the core of one of the X65’s other larger features – support for the latest 3GPP Release 16 specification. It’s called the “5G phase 2” rollout with the design to enhance things, including power consumption, massive MIMO connectivity, and more. Release 16 is also intended to support 5G networks grow to more business uses from the consumer, thanks to better support for non-public networks and unlicensed spectrum.
Qualcomm, to that end, says that the X65 modem system’s architecture is upgradable, perming the company to add new features, especially 3GPP Release 16 keeps on rolling out over time, allowing gadgets to remain important and up to date for more.
In addition to the new modem system, Qualcomm is additionally announcing its 4th-generation mmWave antenna, the Qualcomm 545 mmWave antenna, along with support for the global mmWave frequencies’ full range, which keeps the size equivalent to the third-age model but adds higher transmit power.
At last, Qualcomm introduces named ‘AI antenna tuning technology,’ which it guarantees will enable large bounces in performance thanks to AI-powered tuning. For example, Qualcomm says that the latest system is 30% more accurate while detecting how you’re grasping the mobile phone in hand, permitting it to offer faster data speeds, improved network, and better battery life using a more efficient connection.
