A new modem chip released by Qualcomm Technologies is claimed to be able to support speeds of up to 7Gbps down and 3Gbps up over 5G.

The company said in a statement that the Snapdragon X55 5G modem chip was a 7-manometer single-chip integrated multimode device that would also provide up to 2.5Gbps download speeds on LTE.

The 5G New Radio modem will support all major frequency bands, no matter if they are mmWave or sub-6 Ghz and also supports TDD and FDD modes of operation. It can be deployed on standalone or non-standalone networks.

“Qualcomm Technologies is spearheading the first wave of 5G launches with our first generation 5G mobile platform. With significant evolution in capabilities and performance, our second generation commercial 5G modem is a true testament to the maturity and leadership of our 5G technology," said Cristiano Amon, president, Qualcomm Incorporated.

"We expect our 5G platform to accelerate 5G commercial momentum and power virtually all 5G launches in 2019 while significantly expanding the global 5G rollout footprint."

The new modem chip is expected to be available for sale in late 2019.
