SAN DIEGO, US — February 13, 2018 — Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ: QCOM), has said that its Qualcomm Snapdragon X50 5G NR modem family has been selected by a number of global original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) for standard-compliant 5G NR mobile device product launches starting in 2019.

Top global OEMs working with Qualcomm Technologies include OEMs such as 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. These OEMs are working to commercialize 5G mobile devices for the sub-6 GHz and millimeter wave (mmWave) spectrum bands starting in 2019 based on the first commercially announced 5G modem solution, the Snapdragon X50 5G NR modem family.

“Qualcomm Technologies is deeply committed to helping our customers deliver next-generation 5G mobile experiences to consumers, which requires enhanced mobile broadband 5G NR connectivity enabled by 5G NR networks, mobile devices and the Snapdragon X50 5G modem,” said Alex Katouzian, senior vice president and general manager, mobile, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “As evidenced by our work with these distinguished OEMs from around the globe and as we demonstrated in 3G and 4G LTE, Qualcomm Technologies is utilizing our deep expertise and technology leadership to support the successful launch of 5G NR, driving innovation in the mobile ecosystem.”

Qualcomm Technologies continues is focussing on 5G mobile chipset products and 5G ecosystem collaborations in support of aiming to deliver commercial 5G NR mobile devices in 2019. The arrival of 5G will expand mobile into new spectrum bands and all spectrum types, allowing for enhanced mobile broadband and increasing the overall average download speeds for virtually all smartphone users. 5G NR technologies will allow for multi-gigabit per second data rates at significantly lower latency than today’s network, amongst other capabilities. These technologies will be critical to meeting the increasing connectivity requirements for emerging consumer mobile broadband experiences such as virtual reality, augmented reality and fiber-like cloud connectivity, as well as enabling new high-reliability, low-latency services. Furthermore, for the Always Connected PC, significantly lower latency will allow for an instant link to the cloud for applications requiring real-time interactivity, such as interactive gaming, real-time audio translation, real-time text translation and real-time collaborative editing.

5G use cases include enhanced mobile broadband to smartphones; Always Connected PCs; head-mounted displays (HMD) for virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR) and extended reality (XR); and Mobile Broadband, all of which require constant and consistent cloud connectivity.

ASUS Corporate Vice President Eric Chen said, “ASUS is proud of our strong relationship with Qualcomm Technologies and creating the best mobile and Always Connected PC experiences for our users. We look forward to the new era of 5G networks and working with Qualcomm Technologies to unleash the new benefits of 5G including greater connectivity, better performance, faster download speeds and significantly lower latency for cloud services.”

“Nokia phones have always been at the forefront of innovation when it comes to mobility. 5G will be the catalyst for the introduction of innovative data devices and services in the coming years. It will completely change the kind of experiences consumers would expect from their devices. As we look to this connected future, we look forward to our close relationship with Qualcomm Technologies in delivering richer smartphone experiences to our consumers. We also see a great opportunity evolving in the personal mobile device ecosystem to offer an even more immersive experience,”said Juho Sarvikas, chief product officer, HMD Global.

“Sony Mobile has been continuously evolving mobile communication and entertainment on our Xperia products,” said Izumi Kawanishi, director, executive vice president, product business group, Sony Mobile Communications Inc. “The state of the art 5G technology brings not only an ultra-fast, responsive communication experience, but also a vastly enriched entertainment experience with content to our Xperia product range. We aim to deliver these new experiences to our customers in the coming years.”

The first commercial launches of 5G mobile devices featuring the Snapdragon X50 5G NR modem family are expected to launch starting in 2019.
