Finally, Qualcomm is launching 5G chipsets which are accessible on almost all smartphone price ranges.
The company has introduced its plans to announce the launching of Snapdragon 4-series chipset which supports 5G technology next year.
The Snapdragon 4 series aimed at international markets, and some of the 5G phones accessible in markets will use the new chip and will perfectly support it.
According to Qualcomm, the networks of 5G are now available in 35 countries, and that number is likely to grow over the next few years.
Qualcomm paves the way for 5G commercialization and the expansion of 5G technology into Snapdragon 4-series.
The chipset is expected to focus those regions that are currently having approx 3.5 billion smartphone users.
Also, it announced that the Snapdragon 4-series 5G Mobile Platform.
The creation of chipset exceed expectations for the segment of mass-market by introducing high- and mid-tier features to a broader audience.
At least a few companies in regions like China and India are likely to use the new 5G chipsets.
Companies Adopting 5G Chipsets
Companies like Oppo, Motorola, and Xiaomi all have 4-series devices over the past few years, and may be among the first to adopt the new 5G chipsets.
Thankfully, we don’t need to wait too long to see our devices with the chip. Qualcomm will soon launch the platform in early 2021.
Bringing 5G-compatible phones is only one piece of the 5G puzzle.
While 5G is becoming a little more common in the U.S., networks in countries like India still have yet to develop the coverage.
Even in the U.S., it’s still not necessarily worth buying a phone for 5G support.
We’ll have to wait and see how many devices are actually making use of the new chipset, and whether or not it will help drive 5G adoption.
With the new 5G chipsets, Qualcomm now integrates 5G into its 8-series, 7-series, 6-series, and 4-series lines of phones.
