Qualcomm has revealed a list of OEMs that will be among the first to deploy its 5G-capable Snapdragon X50 modem - as well as details of the United Kingdom networks signed up to participate in the first live, over-the-air 5G spectrum trials.
Nokia and Qualcomm are the tech giants those are focusing on the emerging 5G network.
Markets Right Now: Asian markets recouping losses early
About 10.6 billion shares changed hands in U.S. exchanges, well above the 8.2 billion daily average over the last 20 sessions. European equities weren't spared, with the Euro Stoxx 50 volatility gauge spiking toward the highest since June 2016.
Companies like Asus, Fujitsu Limited, Fujitsu Connected Technologies Limited, HMD Global - the home of Nokia phones, HTC, Inseego/Novatel Wireless, LG, NetComm Wireless, NETGEAR, OPPO, Sharp Corporation, Sierra Wireless, Sony Mobile, Telit, vivo, Wingtech, WNC, Xiaomi and ZTE are working with Qualcomm on this technology. There are others, of course, but these are the companies most associated with consumer-level smartphones. From the press release, it is clear that the OEMs are working with an intention to commercialize their 5G mobile devices by the next year. Qualcomm also claims that 5G-enabled smartphones will have unlimited internet data and will be able to connect to public WiFi networks without needing to log in.

"With our proven success in 3G, 4G LTE and RF front-end leadership, Qualcomm Technologies is ideally positioned to deliver the multi-gigabit, multimode products required for the global rollout of 5G".
The company announced its Qualcomm Snapdragon X50 5G modem has been selected for use in live, over-the-air mobile 5G NR trials with multiple global wireless network operators in both the sub-6GHz and millimetre wave (mmWave) spectrum bands.

Clarkson, who is shooting 32.4 percent from three-point range, isn't going to be knocking down a lot of shots behind the arc. On Wednesday night, Thomas told reporters that he does not want to be traded and is "tired of being traded".
Qualcomm will provide all these carriers an in-house smartphone reference design incorporating the X50 chipset, and the aim is to already achieve download speeds of "several gigabits per second" in MWC 2018 demonstrations later this month.
The wireless operators using Qualcomm's modem for field trials of mobile 5G include AT&T, BT Group, China Telecom, China Mobile, China Unicom, Deutsche Telekom, KDDI, KT, LG U+, NTT DoCoMo, Orange, Singtel, SK Telecom, Sprint Corp, Telstra, TIM, Verizon Communications, and Vodafone. In fact, I'd say at this stage it's more or less a certainty, at least on the spec sheet. Once 5G matures we can expect to see blistering connectivity rates of up to 5Gbps, which is really going to take things to the next level.
