Gigabit speeds were achieved on the test as shared by Qualcomm, and it is said to be able to run on speeds of 5Gbps once full deployments of the 5G networks are completed.
Furthermore, the design for a smartphone was released by Qualcomm, and it is planned that the reference design will be used to test 5G modems, networks, and radios with makers of smartphones over the next one or two years. It is the aim of the company to commence the release of 5G smartphone next two years, i.e., 2019. The design has a thickness of 9mm with edge to edge display similar to current popular models.
A millimetre antenna for wave was also made by the company. This was done so as to make smartphones X50 modem receptive. Two of the antenna made by Qualcomm can enter into the inside of a smartphone, despite the fact that these designs are the best currently available regarding size, more arrangements are being made to further reduce it by as much as 50% in the coming year.
