Who needs that? People getting fixed wireless home internet access and companies building high-tech factories, among other users, Qualcomm execs say.
Qualcomm’s new modem is here, it’s blazing fast and it’s not just for phones. The Snapdragon X65 5G Modem-RF System can download data at up to 10Gbps, and it will power high-end devices starting later this year. Those include premium smartphones, PCs, mobile hotspots, robots, fixed wireless access and private 5G networks set up by companies.
With the X65, unveiled Tuesday, users will get a bump in speed but also see better battery life. Coverage will improve, latency will decrease and applications will be even more responsive than they are with Qualcomm’s earlier X60 modem technology. And capacity will be “massive,” letting more people on a network make reliable and crisp video calls with their doctors and face off against rivals in streaming games.
