The 5G Future

I've never been more optimistic. 


5G will do more than turbocharge our smartphones (though, it’ll certainly do that), it’ll enable the creation of whole new industries, have an economic impact measured in trillions*, and lay the foundation for technologies we’re only beginning to think about.

Far from a speculative vision of the future, the first mobile 5G NR trials will begin in just a few months, paving the way to commercial availability in 2019. Our Qualcomm Snapdragon X50 5G Modem, which was used to demonstrate the world’s first 5G data connection, is helping make that happen. And we’re working with leading OEMs around the world to develop Snapdragon X50-powered smartphones, mobile hotspots, Always Connected PCs, and immersive head-mounted VR displays in time for 5G’s arrival.

As we work to help build the global 5G infrastructure, we continue to evolve LTE. A pivotal part of this effort will be the just-announced Qualcomm Snapdragon X24LTE modem, which makes its public debut at MWC. Snapdragon X24 is our third-generation Gigabit LTE modem that can deliver lightning-fast download speeds up to 2 Gbps. Snapdragon X24 and other Gigabit LTE modems will help ensure a smooth transition into 5G by complementing Snapdragon X50 to provide multimode 4G/5G capability on the same device.
