  • Can't wait for 5G? How your next phone goes supersonic in 4G

At this point, you might be wondering why a company that's going all-in on 5G is bothering to keep investing in LTE chips.

Throw in other capabilities - spatial multiplexing, coordinated multipoint support - along with mundane components like power amplifiers and filters, and Qualcomm's betting the capabilities demand modem-radio integration. Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon X20 modem at this time a year ago, and that made its debut in the Snapdragon 845 chipset, which we are expecting to see in handsets over the next few months.

This feature allows smartphones with the new X24 LTE modem to utilise all spectrum assets available from a mobile operator, whether in the licensed spectrum or with License Assisted Access (LAA). This unprecedented feature set is created to allow devices that feature the Snapdragon X24 LTE modem to utilize all spectrum assets available from a mobile operator, whether in licensed spectrum, or with License Assisted Access (LAA). Snapdragon SoCs have been designed with energy efficiency and phone-capacity batteries in mind, so larger products with bigger batteries should see incredible battery life with Snapdragon processors.

"Anritsu is pleased to once again work with Qualcomm Technologies in support of our latest advancements - breaking the multi-gigabit barrier for wireless communications", said Paul Innis, Vice President and General Manager of Anritsu Company.

Despite the hype around 5G - one of the hottest trends in technology - most people won't get to use it right away.

They are also engineered to support what it called a "chipsets-as-a-service" model (CaaS), in which the value of certain chipset capabilities can be realised through discrete services. The suite of software services is aimed at helping both enterprise and industrial IoT customers to provision, connect, and manage intelligent wireless devices securely through their cloud platforms. It supports the latest 3GPP technologies, including VoLTE, Gigabit LTE, and Cellular IoT applications. No additional micro-controller is necessary.

The semiconductor company said it will share APIs for the Qualcomm wireless edge services software on the MDM9206, MDM9628 and QCA4020 chipsets initially and select Snapdragon platforms later.

Do you think the Snapdragon 855 will be boasting a next-gen architecture? Let us know in the comments section below.
