Qualcomm today unveiled its fourth-generation 5G modem - the Snapdragon X65 5G. The modem offers several upgrades over its predecessor, but the biggest upgrade is certainly supported for 5G speeds up to 10 Gbps. Of course, it will take some time until we have operators offering these speeds, but the X65 will be there when that happens.

The company also points out that the X65 has an upgradeable architecture and will enable the accelerated implementation of the new 3GPP Release 16 features through software updates. Like the previous modem variant, the Snapdragon X65 has an RF transceiver and an RF front-end to cover the sub-6 GHz 5G and mmWave antenna modules (upgraded to the QTM545).

Compared to previous modules, Qualcomm claims that the fourth-generation QTM545 offers higher data transfer power as well as global mmWave frequencies including the new n259 (41Ghz) band. The modem will also use artificial intelligence to detect hand compression, allowing the modem to adjust the antenna to the way users hold their phones.

Qualcomm points out that the Snapdragon X65 5G modem samples are currently being shipped to manufacturers, and that we could see the first modem phones in late 2021.
