Qualcomm introduces the new mobile modem chip Snapdragon X75

Qualcomm Inc. today introduced the Snapdragon X75, a new 5G modem chip that will likely power the next generation of flagship smartphones.

Qualcomm is a major provider of network chips for the mobile communications industry. Its 5G modems can be found in Apple Inc.’s iPhones, as well as flagship Android phones such as the Galaxy S23 series, which Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. introduced this month. The company’s modems are also increasingly being used in other systems such as smart cars.

Last year, Qualcomm unveiled the industry’s first 5G chip that includes an integrated artificial intelligence processor. The processor runs AI algorithms that can automatically optimize a handset’s connection speed and reduce the risk of internet outages.

The new Snapdragon X75 modem unveiled today features an improved version of the technology. According to Qualcomm, the integrated AI processor is more than 2.5 times faster than the one presented last year. The company has also further developed the algorithms that run on the processor: They now take sensory data from a user’s cell phone into account to calculate how 5G connections can best be optimized.

Mobile modems use compact antennas to send and receive 5G signals. With the Snapdragon X75, Qualcomm introduces an optimized antenna design that will reportedly help reduce hardware costs and power consumption. The company has also made software tweaks that it says will improve internet coverage in places like airports.

According to Qualcomm, the Snapdragon X75 should work with a future version of the 5G standard called 5G Advanced. The technology, expected to be rolled out in the coming years, will help increase data upload speeds and reduce the risk of internet outages. It will facilitate these improvements in part by using artificial intelligence to optimize carrier network infrastructure.

The Snapdragon X75 also supports the recently detailed Qualcomm Satellite technology. According to the chipmaker, the technology will allow cell phones to connect to Internet satellite constellations.

“The Snapdragon X75 Modem-RF System demonstrates the full breadth of our 5G global leadership with innovations such as hardware-accelerated AI and support for upcoming 5G Advanced features that will unlock a whole new level of 5G performance and a new phase in cellular communications . said Durga Malladi, senior vice president and general manager of cellular modems and infrastructure at Qualcomm.

Qualcomm supplies network chips not only for smartphone manufacturers, but also for mobile phone providers. In 2021, the company introduced a computer module called 5G DU X100 Accelerator Card, which can be used to power 5G cell towers. The module offloads compute-intensive network management tasks from a cell tower’s servers to boost performance.
