Once Samsung finally sravnyali with Qualcomm in terms of LTE-modem capabilities in Exynos processor, the Texans went on the air and announced their new development. New LTE-modem x16 is capable of supporting data rates up to 1 Gbit / s.
Of course, these advanced speeds are present only in a few countries, it is South Korea (however ironic it may sound), Australia and Sweden, but still, when the operators of other camp will be ready to upgrade your equipment, Qualcomm’s company will already have a modem that It complies with the requirements.
As you know Verizon may launch a similar network in the near future and needless to say, it is said that such rate will be for the next generation of video streaming.
In the meantime, suffice it to say that the modem supports LTE cat. 16, and is built on a 14nm tehprotsessk, which means a much smaller footprint and power consumption than before, despite the doubling of the speed over previous generations.
Another interesting point in the x16 Qualcomm LTE is that it is created with a new modular architecture that allows quick scaling and adapting to different tasks and scenarios that will be necessary for the LTE-connected.
The first devices are already available to customers for testing and will be available on retail devices in the second half of the year.
