Qualcomm Announces Snapdragon 7 and 6 Series, Brings 5G to the Masses

Qualcomm said it plans to add 5G capabilities to its lower-cost Snapdragon 6 and 7 series devices

Qualcomm said it plans to add 5G capabilities to its lower-cost Snapdragon 6 and 7 series devices

The chipmaker said that it will integrate the 5G connectivity to its 6- and 7-series chipsets starting next year, in addition to its flagship 8-series processors, The Verge reports.

At IFA 2019, Huawei announced its latest flagship mobile processor - HiSilicon Kirin 990 and the HiSilicon Kirin 990 5G.

Amon further said "We launched 5G".

We'll hear more about that in a few weeks, but for now, Qualcomm also had an antenna announcement that could change the picture of 5G in the US.

Beyond these announcements, Qualcomm's press release hinted that more details on the next generation Snapdragon 8-Series 5G Mobile platform will be coming later this year. Therefore, if smartphone makers wanted to sell 5G phones, they had to buy two different modems, a 5G one and one that also supported previous technologies (3G, 4G, etc).

According to Strategy Analytics, that would make Samsung responsible for four out of every five 5G smartphones shipped in 2019.

Currently, flagship phones with the 8series Qualcomm chipsets don't have the integrated 5G modem and rely on a a separate modem for 5G conenctivity.

"And we are uniquely positioned to accelerate 5G commercialization to scale globally with our OEM and operator customers with expanded mobile platform offerings across our Snapdragon 8 Series, 7 Series and 6 Series in 2020".

Based on a statement by engadget.com, smartphone manufacturers such as OPPO, Realme, Redmi, Vivo, Nokia and more will be adopting the new chipsets for next year's devices.

Qualcomm also announced that while it already supports fixed wireless access (FWA) solutions, it's adding to its portfolio with the QTM527 mmWave antenna module, which it says it "truly groundbreaking" in that it's the first announced fully-integrated extended-range mmWave antenna module built specifically for 5G FWA CPEs. Qualcomm revealed today that multiple tiers of its Snapdragon platform will be supporting 5G by some point in 2020.

Devices based on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 6 series chipset are expected to be commercially available in the second half of 2020. Among the features includes is Snapdragon Elite Gaming and the company's AI Engine.

For starters, the Snapdragon X50 (and its Snapdragon X55 successor) are standalone chips.

Nonetheless, many still believe the 5G industry will gain serious momentum in the years to come - for example, multiple industry analyst firms have recently raised their 5G sales forecasts.
