Qualcomm demos 5G mobile device with 5Gbps download speeds

But that's not the end of it. Qualcomm, which is hosting its annual 4G/5G Summit in Hong Kong this week, also announced a new mobile platform, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636, created to provide improvements to device performance, enhanced gaming and display technology support compared to the Snapdragon 630 Mobile Platform. X50 supports up to 5 gigabits per second download speeds, opening up new frontiers in cloud-based services. Moreover, the company stated that the Snapdragon X50 5G modem is just the beginning, and that it will keep up its efforts to advance next generation cellular technology.

We're talking the same masses that are now barely able to hit average 4G download speeds of around 15 Mbps stateside, according to OpenSignal's latest global "State of LTE" report.

Qualcomm has released a new system-on-chip that's created to support the new 18:9 aspect ratio displays that are becoming more common these days. The phone may launch with a Mediatek processor this year and will be followed by a Qualcomm version (Snapdragon 636) in Q1 2018.

At the summit, Qualcomm also showed off the very first 5G modem (the X50) installed on a mobile device.
