At MWC 2024, Qualcomm showed a new connectivity chip, the Qualcomm FastConnect 7900, and a new 80G modem, the Snapdragon X5. We explain what they can do here.

The first strength of the FastConnect 7900 is the support of Wi-Fi 7 in conjunction with AI. With this AI, the chip itself should be able to recognize which task is currently being carried out on a device and adjust the data rate and power supply accordingly. The AI ​​should also be able to determine when you leave your own four walls and then activate the mobile data more quickly.

The FastConnect 7900 is also the first chip to combine Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and ultra-wideband in one package. This makes it even more suitable for use cases such as locating a key via a tracker with features such as Wi-Fi ranging and Bluetooth channel sounding. Qualcomm also integrated features for better interaction between multiple everyday devices, such as audio over WiFi.

Snapdragon X80 5G with support for 5G Advanced

The Snapdragon X80 5G modem comes with support for 5G Advanced for multiple Proproduct categories such as smartphones, cars or IoT, and Snapdragon Satellite including NB-NTN communication. The modem also features a six-antenna architecture for smartphones and six-fold carrier aggregation for sub-6 gigahertz bands. The maximum speed should be 10 gigabits pro Second in download and 3,5 gigabits pro Reach second in upload. Artificial intelligence is also used in the X80, for example to improve data speeds, latency or quality of service.

The MWC 2024 coverage from TechnikNews is partially supported by Qualcomm.
