Samsung reveal a prototype 5G Modem in the second half of 2018
Companies are jockeying for positions in the race to adoption.Qualcomm’s X50 modem and Intel’s XMM 8060 modem will be available in 2019. Now, Samsung reveal a 5G modem prototype with the Exynos upcoming latest processor. We expected that Exynos 5G is to ship in 5G smartphones in 2019.
The 5G smartphone market will take at the second half of 2021 or 2022 by actively participating in Release 16 of the 5G standard. Prototype will reportedly ship to Samsung’s Wireless Business Division in the second half of 2018.
But the Exynos 5G is backward-compatible with older standards, too. It’s designed to work with previous telecom technologies such as 2G, 3G, and 4G LTE., and can reportedly use up to 800MHz by bundling eight 100MHz bands by employing carrier aggregation (CA) in high-frequency bands over 28GHz. And the modem supports both 5G non-standalone (NSA) and standalone (SA) simultaneously, the latter of which is being used to transition existing wireless core networks from LTE to 5G.
Theoretically, the Exynos 5G can achieve a maximum download speed of up to 5Gbps, or five times the 1-1.2Gbps download speeds of current best-in-class modem chips.
