Snapdragon X75 | Qualcomm Unveils First 5G Advanced Modem

Qualcomm Unveils First 5G Advanced Modem, Snapdragon X75

Qualcomm, a leading semiconductor and telecommunications equipment company, announced the release of its latest modem, the Snapdragon X75 5G Modem-RF System.

This new modem is set to be a game-changer in the world of mobile technology, as it is the first to support 5G Advanced, a specification introduced in Release 18 of the 5G standard by 3GPP.

Successor to last year’s Snapdragon X70, which has been used in high-end devices like the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, the Snapdragon X75 is expected to be integrated into new devices within the year.

This new modem comes with several enhancements that make it more efficient and powerful than its predecessor.

Reduced Footprint and Power Consumption

One of the most notable improvements of the Snapdragon X75 is its new architecture, which reduces the space it takes up on a device’s circuit board by 25%. This will enable device manufacturers to make more compact devices or add new features without compromising on the size of the device.

The Snapdragon X75 also reduces power consumption by up to 20%, making it more energy-efficient and giving devices that use it longer battery life.

5G Carrier Aggregation

The Snapdragon X75 modem supports 5G carrier aggregation, which means that it can aggregate up to 5 sub-6GHz carriers and up to 10 mmWave carriers. This allows devices to use more bandwidth and achieve faster download and upload speeds.

Improved AI Functionality

In addition to these hardware improvements, the Snapdragon X75 comes with an upgraded AI system. The AI system in the X70 is already impressive, but the new AI system takes it to the next level.

For example, it will help devices maintain better connectivity while in motion, such as when riding in an elevator or subway. The AI system will determine the best cell to connect to in order to maintain the strongest signal.

The AI system will also improve position accuracy by using sensors to assist with mmWave beam management. This is especially useful in areas with many obstacles or interference, such as densely populated urban areas.

The Bottom Line

Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X75 5G Modem-RF System is a significant upgrade to the X70, and it is set to change the game in the world of mobile technology. Its advanced features, including support for 5G Advanced and carrier aggregation, reduced power consumption, and improved AI functionality, make it an ideal choice for device manufacturers looking to create cutting-edge devices.

Keep an eye out for devices equipped with the Snapdragon X75, as they are sure to be among the most advanced devices on the market.
