Qualcomm's Next Premium Snapdragon SoC Will Integrate 5G Modem In 2020

In fact, the company's processor that supports 5G connectivity, the Snapdragon 855 has an integrated 4G modem and can only connect to the 5G bands through an external modem, the Snapdragon X50. Unlike the initial 4G rollout, however, Qualcomm claims excessive battery drain will not be a problem even with first-generation 5G phones. These lightweight XR viewers are created to connect to smartphones based on the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 855 Mobile Platform, tethered via USB Type-C. Assuming that the 5G-integrated chip will be Qualcomm's only flagship processor, and not only a 5G variant of an LTE chip, then in one fell swoop, Qualcomm could also make 5G compatibility the default function for about each and every Android flagship on the market.

These devices will connect via USB Type-C, but thanks to the benefits of 5G, will allow mobile experiences that you might not have seen before, with high-resolution displays and 6DoF - six degrees of freedom - motion tracking.

Now Qualcomm is officially launching a new variant called the Snapdragon 8cx 5G, equipped with the Snapdragon X55 modem.

Its moves in the PC market are perhaps the most interesting. This Snapdragon X55 is Qualcomm's second 5G chipset and works alongside the main SoC to provide 5G connectivity. Outside of a couple of edge cases, similar to Apple, Huawei, and some of Samsung's worldwide phones, essentially every major phone is powered by Qualcomm chips with Qualcomm modems. This wide range of headset designs and styles reflects the goal Qualcomm is hoping to achieve; enhancement of real-world tasks for each and every situation you find yourself in, all powered by just your smartphone.

Qualcomm first announced the Snapdragon 8cx SoC back in December.

All things considered, it might be for the best. As we lead the world to 5G, we envision this next big change in cellular technology spurring a new era of intelligent, connected devices and enabling new opportunities in connected cars, remote delivery of health care services, and the IoT - including smart cities, smart homes, and wearables.
