Samsung unveils 5G Exynos 5100 modem

Samsung is advertising peak download speeds of up to 2Gbps using sub-6GHz spectrum and 6Gbps using mmWave spectrum.

A few days after Samsung Electronics' smartphone chief Koh Dong-jin vowed to provide the world's first 5G phones in March 2019, South Korea's second-place phone maker LG Electronics on Wednesday announced its partnership with U.S. mobile carrier Sprint to offer the first 5G smartphone in the American market. The Exynos 5100 modem is built on the 10nm process technology and supports legacy radio access technologies. As 5G is expected to be first deployed over existing network infrastructures, commercial implementation will benefit from the single-chip design that maximizes data transmission efficiency and reliability between other communication networks. "While Galaxy S10 phones will be provided for mass-volume customers with 4G chipsets, we will introduce a new model for 5G". In 4G environments, you're still looking at up to 1.6 Gbps downlinks.

The new modem will find its way into devices by the end of the year.

Inyup Kang, president of Samsung's logic chip business, earlier told ZDNet that 5G offers "unimaginable opportunity" that the company can not afford to miss.

Like, how would they have that relationship for so long and he just keeps bringing her back... Kushner and Ivanka tape, the source said, would show that they offered emotional support.

Samsung says it's now working with a number of carriers and other partners to commercialize the modem.

Samsung is now collaborating with Korean telecom firms to announce the country's first 5G service delivered from the core network equipment to 5G chipsets embedded in new phones. The firm stressed that it has trust with global telcos and will assist in timely rollouts. The first 5G networks for mobile use in the United States are expected to go live commercially in the first half of 2019.

Samsung's 10-nanometre-class Low Power, Double Data Rate, 4X (LPDDR4X) DRAM will improve performance and lower power consumption of premium smartphones, it said. Expect AI chips for data centers and safety chips for autonomous vehicles soon, its chief says. That's a critical detail, as LTE is still improving even as 5G takes shape, and will continue to from the backbone for carriers' networks for some time.

Furthermore, even if the Exynos Modem 5100 does see the light of day before January, we're still in very early days for mobile 5G.
