Catering to the growing Requirement for high-speed data Accessibility, Qualcomm has Introduced the Snapdragon X24 Because its Latest LTE modem for mobile devices.The modem is specifically designed to deliver peak download speeds of a whopping 2Gbps, which is twice the rate you can now get out of a fibre broadband service. It’s also the world’s first 7nm procedure processor – making room for battery-efficient outcomes. While Qualcomm is aiming to bring the Snapdragon X24 commercially at the end of 2018, we likely need to wait around for a few more time, with premium apparatus in 2019 likely to have the new modem alongside the Snapdragon X50 5G NR modem to provide multi-mode connectivity.
What makes the Snapdragon X24 LTE modem announcement intriguing is the 2Gbps download rates claim. However, there are several features that differentiate the most recent development from all the present mobile modems, including the Snapdragon X20 that will encounter reality with the initiation of the Snapdragon 845 SoC shortly. The Snapdragon X20 is promised to provide download speeds of up to 1.2Gbps and is built on the generally found 10nm process. The Snapdragon X24, on the other hand, is a future-ready modem – placing the ground for 5G connectivity.
Qualcomm shows that the Snapdragon X24 supports around seven carrier aggregation. As a consequence, that you may anticipate a substantial gain in the bandwidth in addition to an uplifted bitrate over everything you can receive from a modem which supports six carrier aggregation, such as the hottest Samsung LTE modem that is going to be a portion of the Galaxy S9 string through the Exynos 9810 SoC. There’s also full-dimension Multi-Input Multi-Output (FD-MIMO) to give way to carriers to start sending their 5G signals.
On the section of uplink support, the Snapdragon X24 has three carrier aggregation in a frequency of 20MHz, two LTE streams at maximum speeds of 106Mbps, as well as 256-QAM. There’s also maximum upload rate of 316Mbps, that will be sufficient for uploading a high-quality video on YouTube or sharing any large files with connections by means of a cloud service such as Dropbox or iCloud.
If you are thinking the way the Snapdragon X24 is going to be of use in emerging markets like India and China, Qualcomm has provided multi-SIM support with LTE dual-SIM, dual-standby (DSDS)+LAA feature in addition to dual-SIM, dual-VoLTE (DSDV) performance. There are also enough developments to make way for next-generation calling services, including HD and Ultra-HD Voice (EVS) and CSFB to 3G and 2G.
“Since the world’s first announced Gigabit LTE modem to achieve speeds of as many as 2 Gbps, the Snapdragon X24 LTE modem sets a major mobile industry milestone, designed to provide improved mobile broadband and deliver an very important gigabit policy layer for commercial 5G systems and mobile devices that are predicted to start launching in 2019,” said Serge Willenegger, senior vice president and general manager, 4G/5G and Industrial IOT, Qualcomm Wireless GmbH, in a media release.
Qualcomm is set to give a sneak peek at some of the core characteristics of this Snapdragon X24 at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 at Barcelona later this month, in cooperation with Ericsson, Netgear, and Telstra. The San Diego-based company has also announced an SDK for the IoT LTE modem (MDM9206) and a set of wireless border services that are likely to be showcased on some connected devices in the forthcoming MWC.
