5G will be heading to 2019 mobile devices thanks to Qualcomm. The company has announced the Qualcomm Snapdragon X50 5G NR (‘5G New Radio’) modem family will be available to a wide range of OEMS in 2019, eighteen altogether, including Sony Mobile. The press release confirms that the new modem will be heading to new devices from these OEMs, which Qualcomm says will enable “low latency, extreme capacity and fiber-like connectivity to the cloud”.
