5G platform released by Qualcomm

Qualcomm Inc, which released the world’s first commercial 5G mobile platform yesterday, has referred to 5G as “basic infrastructure” which will reshape industrial applications and people’s lives.

The world’s biggest mobile chip designer launched the long-awaited Snapdragon 855 platform with full support of 5G and on-device AI features.

It will be adopted by firms such as Samsung, OnePlus, Oppo, Vivo, Xiaomi, HTC and Sony as early as the first half of next year.

According to Ericsson, by 2026, 5G will create a market valued at US$1.3 trillion, bringing business opportunities to carriers and smartphone firms, as well as industries such as manufacturing, energy, public security and health care.

The 5G network will be a commercial reality starting in early 2019 with mobile device launches and network rollouts across North America, Europe, Japan, South Korea, Australia and China.

In China, 5G licenses are expected to be issued around 2019 and 2020, but 5G-ready phones have already been released by vendors such as Lenovo and Xiaomi.

China Mobile, the world’s biggest mobile carrier, is going to release a detailed 5G strategy at its own conference to be held in Guangzhou starting from today.
