Qualcomm Brings 5G Chipset to Mid-range Smartphones

NESABAMEDIA.COM – Qualcomm has finally made 5G accessible on almost everything smartphone range at affordable prices. The company has announced its plans to launch chipset 5G-enabled Snapdragon 4 series next year. Phones with 4-series chips, like the Moto E7 Plus, generally sell for under $200.

The Snapdragon 4 series is specifically aimed at international markets, and the new chips will ideally support some of the first 5G phones accessible in those markets. According to Qualcomm, 5G networks are now available in 35 countries, and that number is likely to grow in the next few years.

“Qualcomm continues to pave the way for 5G commercialization on a large scale, and the expansion of 5G into our Snapdragon 4 series is expected to address a region that currently has around 3.5 billion smartphone users,” said Cristiano Amon, president of Qualcomm, in a release. press to coincide with the IFA event in Berlin. “The Snapdragon 4 series 5G Mobile Platform is designed to exceed expectations for the mass market segment by bringing predominantly high- and mid-range features to a wider audience. This will fulfill the promise of making 5G accessible to all smartphone users.”

The new chips will likely be used by at least a few companies in regions like India and China. Companies like Motorola, Oppo, and Xiaomi have all launched series 4 devices over the past few years and may be the first to adopt the new 5G chip.

Luckily, we didn’t have to wait long to see a device with the chip. Qualcomm will launch the platform in early 2021 and expects phones featuring the chipset to launch in the first quarter.

Of course, launching smartphone being compatible with 5G is only one piece of the 5G puzzle. While 5G is becoming a bit more common in the United States, networks in countries like India are still not spreading wide coverage. Even in the US, it’s still not necessarily worth buying a phone for its 5G support alone – even though most flagship devices today support the new network.

We’ll have to wait and see how many devices actually use the new chipset, and whether that will help drive 5G adoption or not. With the new chipset, Qualcomm is now integrating 5G into the line smartphone 8 series, 7 series, 6 series and 4 series.
