Qualcomm Snapdragon X24 LTE

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

Those numbers represent the fastest your phone could possibly download data, but that's not what you'll realistically get each time you go online.

Think 4G LTE is fast? At the beginning, as carriers start to roll out their 5G networks, 4G LTE is going to still be important for many mobile users.

So 5G NR will enable very fast smartphones and later always connected 5G NR PCs, IoT 4.0 connected 5G industry and many other aspects.

The chipset maker said the product, its eighth LTE multimode modem and third generation Gigabit LTE product, would pave the way for 5G New Radio products.

Qualcomm Technologies, Qualcomm's fabrication subsidiary, has begun sampling the X24 ahead of mass production in the coming months - it expects the standalone configuration to become available by the end of the year, and the X24 modem to make its way to consumer devices in 2019.

"In 2017, NETGEAR and Telstra launched the world's first commercial Gigabit LTE device and we are pleased to work with Telstra, Qualcomm Technologies and Ericsson for the next generation of unparalleled mobile devices".

David Moyes claims there's more to come from key West Ham man
Indeed, only a horribly off-target header from Richarlison prevented the mood darkening as Watford continued to probe. Moyes and Evra worked together at Manchester United before the former France worldwide moved to Juventus in 2014.

We likely won't see the fruits of this achievement until well into 2019, which puts the X24's debut on the cusp of the X50's, Qualcomm's first 5G NR modem.

Carriers will continue to upgrade 4G LTE networks at the same time they spin up their first 5G networks, which is the X24's main selling point as an in-betweener.

For reference, phones like the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Motorola Moto Z2 Force can already download at a theoretical peak of 1 gigabit of data per second, while 5G phones using Qualcomm's X50 modem promise to download up to 5 gigabits per second. While we're still waiting on the Snapdragon 845, which will ship with the slower and less power-efficient X20 modem in March, Qualcomm is announcing the X24 to punctuate the notion that LTE still has plenty of life left.

Qualcomm's Snapdragon X24 LTE modem is said to be the first Category 20 LTE modem to support speeds of up to 2 Gbps.

The X24 achieves the speeds it can because it supports "up to 7x carrier aggregation on the downlink" as well as 4X4 MIMO on up to five aggregated carriers. Operators will also be able to use their spectrum more efficiently while delivering high speeds to consumers. 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). Additional system capacity improvements are made possible through the support of Full Dimension Multi-Input Multi-Output (FD-MIMO), a Massive MIMO technology that is foundational to future 5G NR networks.

On the part of uplink support, the Snapdragon X24 has three carrier aggregation at a frequency of 20MHz, two LTE streams at maximum speeds of 106Mbps, and up to 256-QAM.
