OEMs and carriers are committed to the Qualcomm Snapdragon X50 5G modem

5G-technology

Let's take a look.

The mobile 5G NR trials will utilise its 5G mobile test platform and smartphone reference design, which incorporate the Snapdragon X50 chipset and optimise 5G technology within the power and form factor constraints of a smartphone while maintaining interoperability and co-existence with 4G LTE.

Nokia, in fact, is one of the first brands to focus on the new 5G technology along with Snapdragon.

Companies like Asus, Fujitsu Limited, Fujitsu Connected Technologies Limited, HMD Global - the home of Nokia phones, HTC, Inseego/Novatel Wireless, LG, NetComm Wireless, NETGEAR, OPPO, Sharp Corporation, Sierra Wireless, Sony Mobile, Telit, vivo, Wingtech, WNC, Xiaomi and ZTE are working with Qualcomm on this technology.

Where's Samsung on the roll call, you ask? Moreover, the USA -based chip maker has confirmed that various telecom service providers from across the world will be starting the trail run of 5G networks soon.

As Qualcomm pushes ahead with 5G commercialization efforts, the company announced yesterday it completed 5G NR interoperability testing with Nokia in the 3.5 GHz and 28 GHz band.

No, Qualcomm's statement simply says its newly released list of 5G OEM partners "includes" the above firms - there will be more RSVPs to this party and some may drop out, but I maintain Samsung is poised to be first down the red carpet.

But back to the after work drinks gossip...

In another step toward bringing 5G devices to consumers, Qualcomm on Thursday announced 19 handset makers worldwide agreed to use the Snapdragon X50 5G NR modem in their devices starting in 2019.

Qualcomm has officially announced both the wireless carriers and OEMs that will support the Snapdragon X50 5G modem.

A number of major wireless network operators have opted to test out a Qualcomm Technologies modem in trials of 5G smartphone technology. In 5G terms, they represent the main addressable market for early deployments, according to ABI Research analyst Malik Saadi.

Whether you believe, like me, that the Qualcomm/Samsung "strategic relationship agreement" with give the South Korean chaebol first dibs on on the all-important Snapdragon X50 modem is still up for debate, but the good news for mobile fans is that the first 5G devices should arrive next year.
