Qualcomm has tested the Snapdragon X20 modem in partnership with Qualcomm, which will be in the next generation of the American processor. It can not be said that these results do not make a shocking impression.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 will be the next generation US processor. Premiere of this component is expected to take place next year and from week to week we know more and more about this layout. This time, Nokia and Qualcomm decided to use T-Mobile's LTE network to test how to handle the data transfer of the Snapdragon X20 modem, which will go to the processor mentioned above. 4×4 MIMO and 256QAM technology were used for the test. How did the Snapdragon X20 fall out in the whole test? Sam modem supports Cat.18 LTE as standard. This means that theoretically it is able to download data at a rate of about 1.2 Gbps . According to Qualcomm CEO Cristiano Amon, smartphones with this modem should hit the market in the first quarter of next year, so relatively soon. Looking at the test video, you see what speeds are going to go for this chip – in my opinion they are really amazing, which will surely translate into greater convenience for using smartphones in larger cities or places with good quality signals. Snapdragon X20 is also a prelude to the development of 5G technology, which for the first time in commercial use is expected to appear in some time. It is not known yet which phones will benefit from Snapdragon 845 and Snapdragon X20, but you can expect to implement this chip from major manufacturers: I mean Samsung, Sony or even LG. I am just wondering how the mentioned modem will work outside the cities and even when traveling by train. The speeds are impressive, but the challenge is to keep them high all the time. We will see if Snapdragon X20 can do it. Source: Qualcomm
