Qualcomm is generally taking advantage of its annual Snapdragon Tech Summit in Maui to showcase next-generation mobile processors and related technologies that are being introduced today with key new Snapdragon 865/765 and 3D Sonic Max dual-fingerprint scanners. However, the bigger theme of the event is a demonstration of real use cases for the company's new 5G AI chips, which will fuel consumer demand for next-generation smartphones and devices.
Even though 5G data services are still in their infancy, OEMs, carriers and consumers have been encouraging – more than 4G after all. Qualcomm President Cristiano Amon led the keynote on the first day of the event, noting that over 230 5G devices are already in the market or under development. This is an astounding number as global network launches are ongoing. Nicki Palmer, chief product development officer of US top carrier Verizon, said the company already sells seven 5G devices while offering only one in the 4G lifecycle.
Early real-world 5G use cases significantly include higher-resolution video and faster streaming, cloud gaming, and enabling next generation user-created content, such as video content. B. Enhancing the presence of 3D images and high-resolution 360-degree video. Qualcomm also expects 5G to play a growing role in mixed-reality experiences, including enabling virtual "presence" for teleconferencing and enabling responsive augmented reality 5G mobile technologies to enable massive, low-latency data transfers between mobile devices and the edge cloud Nearby Servers ̵
"5G will help you maintain a reliable, continuous connection to the cloud," he said, who can be trusted to expand permanently connected devices with virtually unlimited storage space and on-demand cloud services. Rather than relying on the devices that provide processing power for apps, they will rely heavily and seamlessly on cloud services – distributed information – thereby ushering in an age of "intelligent cloud connectivity."
So far, the company is optimistic The 5G prospects are expected by 2022 to deliver 1.4 billion 5G smartphones. Of course, OEMs like Motorola, Oppo, Xiaomi, and HMD / Nokia, who have each chosen to bring their devices to market over the year, will do the initial work. While none of the companies offered details on their new devices, Xiaomi alone promised more in the coming year 10 new 5G smartphones. Qualcomm has developed modular two- and three-chip platforms for its new Snapdragon offerings and offers similar options to OEMs to enable the development of SnapRagon-based wearables and IoT devices that is image and acceptance so far positive. Amon said the company expects 200 million 5G subscribers by the end of next year and 2.8 billion 5G connections by 2025, supported by a large number of network launches over the next two years around the world. Without specifically naming T-Mobile, Amon endorsed the company's forward-looking strategy of combining low, mid and high-frequency spectra to create comprehensive, true 5G and 5G service layers. Verizons Palmer also highlighted the 5G research and development efforts Development work currently being carried out in its five separate 5G laboratories. She found that they focused on developing use cases and supporting hundreds of companies with creative ideas 5G ideas. She also claimed to be a new "world first". Verizon is just the first airline to offer 5G on a beach, which unfortunately underscores the company's strange 5G launch strategy of covering only small segments of selected cities with short-range millimeter-wave 5G towers. The company has promised to offer a 5G data service in "parts" of 30 markets by the end of 2019, from today's less than 20 – plus some NFL stadiums.
