Qualcomm's Snapdragon X24 modem will enable 2 Gbps LTE speeds

Qualcomm Snapdragon X24 LTE: World's first Cat 20 2Gbps modem set to debut at MWC

However, Qualcomm isn't done with 4G LTE technology just yet, which is why it today is introducing the Snapdragon X24. We've asked Qualcomm if it can divulge more about its rollout plans for the Snapdragon X24 and will report back if we learn anything new. We're on the cusp of seeing its successor, 5G, mature enough to ship in phones and practically everything else that connects to the internet, but one purveyor of LTE products, Qualcomm, wants to bring 4G as close to 5G as possible before it moves on to bigger and better things.

Not only is it the world's first Cat 20 LTE modem to offer 2Gbps speeds, it's also the world's first announced chip built on a 7-nanometer FinFET process. It is also the world's first 7nm process chip - making room for battery-efficient results.

The chipset giant has already started sampling the modem, with devices expected to hit the market by the end of 2018.

She also condemned the recent Kabul attacks and offered Pakistan's assistance for a joint investigation. All three were tied to Aminullah, who was put on worldwide terror blacklists in 2009.

The list of global operators supporting Snapdragon X50 5G Modem for Mobile 5G NR Trials in 2018 includes AT&T, Sprint, Verizon (USA), BT (UK), China Telekom, China mobile, China Unicom - from guess where - China, Deutsche Telekom (Germany), KDDI, NTT Docomo (Japan), Korea Telekom, LG Uplus SK Telekom from Korea, Orange, Vodafone (many countries in Europe), Telecom Italia mobile (TIM) and of course Australia's jewel Telstra.

Qualcomm also stated that the Snapdragon X24 LTE modem delivers double the speed of the company's first generation Gigabit LTE modem.

The company's top-speed 4G modem, the Snapdragon X24, supports peak downloads of 2 Gbps (with the usual caveat that you'd need to be the only person connecting to the tower), and the X50 will push that to a peak of 5 Gbps. While all the recent OnePlus smartphones are 4G ready, the OEM has partnered with Qualcomm to launch a 5G device in 2019.

Security forces also uncovered and destroyed six farms used to grow banned narcotics, the statement said. Last year, militants attacked a Sufi mosque in the region, killing 311 worshipers.

Qualcomm says that the fiber-like internet speeds that the X24 LTE modem is capable of will give us "mobile experiences such as immersive 360-degree video, connected cloud computing, rich entertainment and instant apps".

The Snapdragon X24 supports up to seven carrier aggregation (topping things like Samsung's latest Exynos chipsets, which supported six carrier aggregation) and 4x4 MIMO antenna arrays on up to five aggregated LTE carriers, which allow for a theoretical maximum of 20 concurrent LTE streams.

More business-facing announcements set for MWC including the introduction of new Qualcomm wireless edge services for its enterprise base, and the announcement of a new LTE IoT software development kit. "At the same time, operators can gain flexibility in using their spectrum assets to offer blazing fast speeds to consumers, while also improving their network capacity and maximising spectral efficiency", said Qualcomm in its blog post. In the uplink, the Snapdragon X24 supports Category 20 upload speeds, 3×20 MHz CA and up to 256-QAM.

Budget plan's $1 trillion deficit sours some Republicans
As Senator Paul pointed out, the 650-page spending plan was only made public on Wednesday night, so many details remain unclear. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi voted against the bill due to congressional inaction on protections for DREAMers.
