Major Network Operators Choose Qualcomm Modem for Mobile 5G Trials

Major Network Operators Choose Qualcomm Modem for Mobile 5G Trials

Still, Qualcomm is touting the commitments as proof that its mobile 5G NR technology is ready for the smartphone form factor.

Besides Nokia, the other OEMs such as Asus, Fujitsu Limited, Fujitsu Connected Technologies Limited, HTC, Inseego/Novatel Wireless, LG, NetComm Wireless, NETGEAR, OPPO, Sharp Corporation, Sierra Wireless, Sony Mobile, Telit, Vivo, Wingtech, WNC, Xiaomi and ZTE are also working with Qualcomm to launch 5G devices in 2019. There are others, of course, but these are the companies most associated with consumer-level smartphones. Moreover, the US -based chip maker has confirmed that various telecom service providers from across the world will be starting the trail run of 5G networks soon.

In addition, Qualcomm has announced that its modem has been selected by 19 different global mobile operators for real-world, live trials of mobile 5G using Qualcomm's modem. Read my full analysis of why Samsung will launch the first 5G mobile phones to learn more.

It is very likely that HMD Global may launch the first 5G enabled handsets in 2019 and all the fans would be impressed with the browsing and download speeds it would offer.

The companies tested both 3.5GHz and 28GHz spectrum and found that both were compliant with the 3GPP's newly released standards for the 5G networks using the commercial AirScale base station of Nokia and the device prototypes from Qualcomm.

Padman is not about box office - R Balki
Akshay Kumar has managed to generate lot of buzz about his upcoming film Padman which is a story of Arunachalam Muruganantham . He says, "We had taken some local actors for the shoot and they had to hold a sanitary pad in their hand for a sequence".

In a separate press release, the San Diego company also said that carriers such as AT&T, China Mobile, Orange, SK Telecom, Verizon, and Vodafone would conduct trials for the 5G NR standard to optimize their networks.

While industry decision makers have yet to concretely defined 5G, the Snapdragon X50 5G NR chip is expected to help in increasing connectivity speeds to the range of multi-gigabit per second.

Qualcomm announced that its super-fast Snapdragon X50 5G NR modem family has received support by a bunch of OEMs, with these companies launching 5G-based products next year, with trials beginning later this year. In fact, I'd say at this stage it's more or less a certainty, at least on the spec sheet.

We'll be spending some time with Qualcomm at MWC later this month, hoping to gain some additional insight, so check Trusted Reviews regularly for all the latest 5G mobile news.
