However, long ago, Qualcomm introduced a 5G baseband Snapdragon X50, reached 5Gbps downstream, then what is the significance of X24?
In fact, because the 5G standard has not yet been fully finalized, the X50 verification is more robust and based on the old 28nm process, it is impossible to directly use it in future high-end handsets.
At the same time, Qualcomm stressed that 5G will only be popularized in limited scenarios in 2019. Continuing to optimize the peak speed of 4G is a more pragmatic choice for operators and handset manufacturers.
At the MWC at the end of February, Ericsson, Telstra, Netgear, etc. will also preview X24 baseband products.
