Qualcomm has just announced its latest Gigabit-class LTE modem called Snapdragon X20. It is a discrete modem (not integrated into a SoC processor) that can reach a theoretical speed of 1.2 Gbps (download), thus firmly bridging the gap between LTE and 5G. It does so thanks to an unprecedented use of carrier aggregation and introduces features like dual-SIM VoLTE (voice over LTE) that should be increase voice quality for regions like Asia or MEA where dual-SIM is popular.

The Snapdragon X20 LTE Modem is Qualcomm first device to use LTE CAT 18 (1.2Gbps DL), and it also happens to be the world’s first CAT 18 modem. The upload remains at CAT 13 (150 Mbps), just like the X9, X12 and X16 modems. The 1.2 Gbps peak download speed is possible because Qualcomm uses carrier aggregation with five 20Mhz channels instead of four with the X16 Modem (1 Gbps, CAT 16). “Carrier aggregation” means combining multiple data streams all operating in the same band (20 Mhz here) to increase data throughput.   Read full post →Qualcomm Snapdragon X20 Second Generation Gigabit LTE Modem
