Now this modem is totally going to be a revolution for our way of using the internet. The Qualcomm x50 modem is the first 5G modem announced which is expected to land up very soon. This variant is capable of over 5Gbps speeds on the 28 GHz mmWave Spectrum.
Due to restrictions of 28 GHz signals, it will be used to complement the existing LTE network but will be influenced from the line of sight. Qualcomm has said that it is working on the solutions and like it is said that it will complement the existing LTE network. The sampling of Qualcomm x50 modems will begin in the later phase of 2017 and the devices including these features will be released in early 2018.
Qualcomm hopes that by the introduction of 5G networks, it will be able to change the way we use internet. It will allow us to watch high quality videos without even the slightest flicker and the offsite storage will feel as fast and rapid as local storage and possibly even VR streaming will be possible.
