5G technology is currently under process of trials and soon people will be getting benefits from it. It is obvious that new 5G technology will change life as Qualcomm has introduced new type of super fast modem. Such devices are excellent that may transfer data 5 times faster than traditional LTE technology. It will use unique frequency that will be used for the first time. This is one of the highest frequencies so far. The new 5G equipment will be sold in next year and name is proposed to be Snapdragon X50 modem.

5Gbps Super Fast Speed
New X50 model is capable of unprecedented wireless broadband speed. Qualcomm reported detail of X50 modem in 4G/5G summit in Hongkong. Qualcomm also announced LTE X16 Gigabit modem.
The networks supporting X50 can download up to 5Gbps. This is faster than 1.8Gbps speed of next generation WiFi 802.11ax. Please see detail here.
New innovative system and millimeter wave length technologies are being incorporated shown by Qualcomm representative. Initially it will use 28GHz band while Verizon and Korea Telecom are also working similar frequency spectrum.
Cellular networks use frequency below 6GHz as higher frequency cannot travel long distance nor these can pass through solid material.
Future modems will use new techniques of beam forming and beam tracking. This will help mobile tower to concentrate signals to an electronic device. This is also flexible to change the direction accordingly on demand.
Qualcomm hopes to market limited devices in second quarter of 2017. However it will work with LTE modem in order to provide basis for 4G and 5G devices.
