Qualcomm’s New 5G Chips Target Budget Smartphones in 2020

Qualcomm’s New 5G Chips Target Budget Smartphones in 2020”

To support these ambitions, Qualcomm is expanding 5G support across its Snapdragon 8 Series, 7 Series, and 6 Series processors.

Samsung, the world's top smartphone seller, has also put Qualcomm chips in its lower-priced A90 5G model, which had used Samsung chips in an earlier version.

"Now we have to bring it to everyone". With this, carriers will be able to offer fixed 5G service for use in homes and businesses, potentially giving those in suburban and rural areas more options aside from broadband, fiber, or satellite internet.

After Samsung announced the Exynos 980 SoC with integrated 5G, even Huawei unveiled its Kirin 990 SoC. From here on out, the chipsets containing Qualcomm's 5G modem, RF transceiver, and RF front-end will be known officially as the "Qualcomm Snapdragon 5G Modem-RF System". The chipmaker has a big 5G event in late September, followed by its annual conference in December, at which we expect to see the game changer-the Snapdragon 865 chipset with integrated 5G. The Snapdragon 6 Series 5G Mobile Platform will come later, in the second half of 2020. This not only for the flagship 8 lineup, but mid-range 7 and 6 series too.

Qualcomm says that it already has 12 manufacturers, including LG, Oppo, and HMD Global (which produces smartphones under the Nokia brand), that plan to use the new 7-series processor in their upcoming phones. With exceptional progress, Qualcomm Technologies has accelerated the commercial readiness of this platform to fourth quarter of 2019 with devices expected to launch soon thereafter. "It's going faster than anyone could have ever imagined".

During his IFA keynote, Qualcomm President Cristiano Amon said the year 2019 is a significant moment because it will fuel a new era of innovation and significant growth for the wireless industry beyond traditional applications. It's typical for operators to market subsidised handsets in the United States, but less so in Europe. This is partially what made the 5G phones so expensive. However, the next-generation 5G chip in the SD800 series will also arrive later this year. I've been let down enough by 5G mmWave range promises at this point that I simply can't believe what Qualcomm is promising. The chipset will use a "system-level approach" which will help in achieving "high 5G performance" while using power more efficiently. The component is being billed as a comprehensive modem to antenna 5G solution.

Chips from MediaTek can only handle sub-6 bands, reducing the cost and complexity of the chips and phone designs.
