In October 2016, Qualcomm released the world's first 5G modem, the Xiaolong X50. In October 2017, the first 5G smartphone reference design was launched, and the X50 5G Modem achieved the world's first 5G data connection.
At the 4G/5G summit in 2018, Qualcomm introduced a new millimeter-wave antenna module, which is 25% smaller than the first QTM052 millimeter-wave antenna modules released in July this year. Manufacturers can build their devices more flexibly based on this. And products, can be matched with the Xiaolong X50 5G modem.
Just in September of this year, Ericsson and Qualcomm, using the mobile phone-sized terminal to achieve the first 3G new air interface 6 GHz OTG call in line with 3GPP specifications, in general, Qualcomm and Ericsson dialed the first 5G phone. At the summit, Qualcomm President Cristiano Amon demonstrated the prototype of the smartphone in the future 5G system, and carried out video streaming on the 5G mobile test terminal through OTA.
In the upcoming 5G era, mobile phones are one of the most important roles in mobile terminals. Many vendors have clearly seized opportunities. OPPO and vivo have also delivered relevant speeches on 5G mobile phones, striving to become the first batch of 5G commercials. Manufacturer of mobile phones. Shortly after the 4G/5G summit ended, one plus CEO Liu Zuohu experienced the 5G network in the laboratory environment and issued the world's first 5G Twitter. We have reason to believe that domestic mobile phones can seize the opportunities in the 5G era.
We are all expecting mobile devices to achieve a more immersive virtual world experience. There is no doubt that virtual reality will usher in a breakthrough and outbreak in the 5G era. High-speed 5G networks support VR/AR/XR experience upgrades, such as 360. HDR video, ultra high definition VR content.
In the mobile game market, Tencent, which has the advantage of congenital traffic entry, has a pivotal position. Its glory and stimuli are well-known in the battlefield, and Tencent also said that it will bring more surprises to users in the 5G era at the 4G/5G summit. The game field will further ushered in a full-scale outbreak in the 5G era. In the future, we don't have to download games. The 5G high-speed network can realize direct cloud second-open trials without occupying the memory space of the device. Delays and dropped calls will no longer exist. You can be a good teammate. Speaking of the gaming experience, Qualcomm released the new Snapdragon 675 at the conference, integrating the fourth-generation Kryo CPU, equipped with two 2.0GHz performance cores and six 1.7GHz efficiency cores, which will bring a smooth gaming experience. It also supports a great shooting experience.
In addition to the mobile phones we care about the most, the arrival of 5G will also bring changes to other aspects of our daily lives. For example, the hot automatic driving, 5G network connection will greatly promote and guarantee the development of automatic driving. Qualcomm's C-V2X technology is compatible with 5G worldwide. In the future, real-time communication links between cars and cars, cars and pedestrians, and automotive and road test traffic facilities can be realized, making the traffic environment safer and providing automatic and safe driving. It is expected that C-V2X will be integrated into mass production vehicles in 2019, and Geely Automobile from China is currently one of the pioneers in this field. In addition to the field of automatic driving, advanced communication technologies will also be widely used in artificial intelligence, smart home, smart city, industrial Internet of things and other fields, and can foresee a steady stream of industry innovation and experience breakthroughs.
