Most of the talk about this major network upgrade has been around smartphones but USA firm Qualcomm has just revealed its new Snapdragon 8cx 5G compute platform which will bring faster speeds to Windows 10-powered PCs.

Qualcomm also announced at Mobile World Congress this year, which was hosted in Barcelona, Spain, it will expand its 5G chips to PCs and home broadband.

The new mobile phone platform (let's call it the Snapdragon 865, although it may be a new product line for 5G) will be ready for commercial devices in early 2020, and Samsung will use the new platform in future products-probably the Galaxy S11. This position was reportedly corroborated by June Hee Lee, the head of Samsung's technology strategy team.

Qualcomm says that this 7nm one-two punch will allow for premium ultra-light Windows 10 PCs that are not only formidable on a performance-per-watt basis, but will also be able to deliver breakneck internet speeds as America's 5G networks build out over the coming year.

He says it to me in the movie, he says, 'All you gotta do is trust me.' I trusted him the whole time. She leapt up, overcome by her triumph, and hugged Cooper first.

This is a very fast transition. The Snapdragon X55 also doesn't fallback to 4G LTE for non-data operations and can maintain a standalone 5G connection. This fall, we'll have X55-based phones that will work on all the networks. Considering one of the big concerns about 5G has been how power-hungry the first generation of phones might be - and thus how bulky they'll end up, given the size of the battery required - that's good news. However, if we're being realistic here, we might not see shipping systems with both chips together until the first half of 2020.

Amon didn't get too much into the details of the power-saving mode, which he says involves "discontinuous reception". It'll likely mean more efficient use of space inside a device - potentially meaning more room for batteries, or just for making the phone smaller overall - as well as be more efficient in terms of power consumption. In fact the company already has two 5G modems announced: the Snapdragon X50 that will show up in phones like the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G and the LG V50 ThinQ 5G, and the Snapdragon X55 announced this year.

"5G is here. It's here in 2019".

"It's nearly a 10x difference on the device side than what we saw with 4G", he added.
