Recently on Tuesday Qualcomm made an important announcement by introducing its new Qualcomm Snapdragon X65 5G modem fully based on the new 4nm process and said to be a capable modem for up to 10Gbps which is insane. Qualcomm reported that its new X65 modem will be made only for high-end devices like premium smartphones, PCs, industrial Internet of Things, and 5G private networks.
The company reported that the new modem will feature a newly designed RF Front End (RFFE) solution and mmWave antenna module, which made it capable to provide a fast download speed of up to 10Gbps. Qualcomm also reported that the new antenna module will make the modem feature with both sub-6GHz and “extended-range 5G” mmWave connectivity, which will let users switch to sub-6Ghz when there is no 5G network available.
The new Qualcomm Snapdragon X65 5G modem will also feature artificial intelligence which leads to more accuracy in detecting the hand’s positions by 30% as compared to the previous generation modems by the company. Moreover, the company also said that the new RFFE solution of the X65 modem will provide devices with “all-day battery life”.
