Late last year, Qualcomm launched a list of 19 OEMs who it says are presently committed to its 5G vision for 2019. However, the US chipmaker has expanded its projections of the volume of smartphone models that would use its 5G chip. According to the US fabless chipset manufacturer, “more than 30 commercial 5G mobile devices” are coming to land using the company’s hardware this year, and the majority of them will be phones.
Announced on, the manufacturer had reeled out the 19 partners to have well known brands this sort of as ASUS, Xiaomi, OnePlus, OPPO, Vivo, HMD, HTC, Sony, Sharp, LG and Motorola. Others have Fujitsu, computer networking firm Netgear, wireless communications equipment maker Sierra and a couple of names that don’t sound familiar as far as mobile phones are concerned. The company didn’t disclose the other manufacturer that would jack up the quantity of gadgets that would pack a Sd 855 cpu to thirty. The SD 855 chipset features the Snapdragon X50 modem what will power the 5G technology.
The quantity of 5G partners Qualcomm already has onboard seems to be higher than individuals who were soon adopters when Lte 4G started landing back in 2011. This massive push to 5G could be a way OEMs and carriers hope to counter the slumping cameraphone market. The manufacturer believes its SoC, modem, and RF solutions, are the best and doesn’t think any other chipmaker can mount any competition in that regard. Already, MediaTek has exited the flagship chipset section and may perhaps be a long time away from 5G. So, Qualcomm believes virtually all 5G mobile gadgets launched in 2019 will be designed on its 5G solutions.
