Since the first 5G standard was officially approved 5 months ago, the entire industry is eager to keep up with this 5G mobile network connection technology. With the latest released Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ X50 5G NR modem, a few of consumer electronics companies have committed to making 5G-ready mobile devices start in 2019 by using the X50 modem.
Recently, the news about Huawei Honor 7C mobile phone is used Qualcomm’s processor has attracted widespread attention. This means that Huawei has adopted the “self-research + Qualcomm” market strategy, so as to catch the global Qualcomm 5G Express!
Qualcomm 5G Chipset around the World
Speaking of Qualcomm’s 5G R&D, it was started as early as 10 years ago. At October 2016, Qualcomm had released a global 5G modem and named it Snapdragon X50. Since then, Qualcomm has improved the X50 5G modem constantly. By March 2017, the Snapdragon X50 has achieved full-frequency coverage, and it can achieve multi-mode coverage of 2G/3G/4G/5G through a single chip, and it also meets the 3GPP 5G new air interface standard.

If you thought the leap from 3G to 4G LTE was a nice bump, just wait until 5G rolls out in just a few years. When that happens, imagine a mobile world where you can download data at a blistering 20 gigabits per second, fast enough to download HD movies in a span of seconds.
Verizon (VZ) appears to have big plans for fifth-generation (5G) wireless technology this year, and the company’s chief financial officer recently pointed out 5G soon could become a reality in the United States. Continue reading “Verizon Says it will be the First U.S. Carrier to Roll 5G”
5G is widely anticipated as a game changer for many reasons including a few low-latency dependent applications such as those that utilize Haptic Internet.
Next generation Internet applications will be tactile and responsive to non-verbal communication in which remote users will be able to enjoy haptic experiences through real-time interactive systems. Aided by 5G networks, haptic systems and applications will facilitate transmission of touch and actuation in real-time, leading to a new class of highly interactive and engaging services generally referred to as Haptic Communications.
It is expected that commercialization of 5G will allow the Haptic Internet to go mainstream as applications become available on an anytime, anywhere basis.

Ericsson and China Mobile Research Institute want to drive early applications of 5G mobile network technology. The two signed a memorandum of understanding to collaborate on 5G research and development, including the development of a new 5G air interface for commercial deployment by 2020.
China Mobile, the world’s largest mobile operator by number of subscribers, is accelerating investments in both LTE rollouts and 5G initiatives. The agreement will initially cover a five-year period, with the collaboration set to include verification, trial and standardization of a new 5G air interface for commercial deployment by 2020. Ericsson and China Mobile will also focus on network architecture evolution to support 5G, including close interworking between 5G and LTE, as well as innovative radio access network features to support future industrial use cases.
