Qualcomm teams with 30+ OEMs to use Snapdragon X55 5G modem in 2020

Expect Qualcomm's Snapdragon X55 5G-powered modem in a TON of 5G smartphones in 2020

Qualcomm has announced that it has teamed with over 30 OEMs to get its super-fast Snapdragon X55 modem inside of devices and your homes in 2020 and beyond, paving the way for non-5G devices to get super-fast speeds.


The new solution will see Qualcomm teaming with companies to get its 5G chip as well as Wi-Fi 6 tech to power Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) home gateways, where the Snapdragon X55 modem and Networking Pro 1200 platform will support sub 6-GHz networks and throw down the gauntlet for long-range communication with ridiculous speeds.

34 companies have signed up to use the Qualcomm Snapdragon X55 modem and RF system, with these products to make their way to market in 2020. They will be called 5G FWA CPE (because normal non-tech and non-up-to-date people will love saying that out aloud) and should replace normal wired cable modems but they will deliver when it comes to super-quick speeds.

The new devices are already sampling in reference form, but we should expect big shifts coming in 2020 and beyond with these new 5G FWA CPE products.
