Qualcomm has introduced a new Snapdragon X70 5G Modem-RF System that uses AI to enable better 5G speeds, coverage, latency and power efficiency. This is Qualcomm's fifth generation modem-to-antenna 5G solution.

Snapdragon X70 inherits the unrivaled 10 Gigabit 5G peak download speed of its predecessor and packs in new, advanced capabilities such as Qualcomm 5G AI Suite, Qualcomm 5G Ultra-Low Latency Suite and 4X carrier aggregation to achieve unmatched 5G speeds, coverage, signal quality and low latency. The Qualcomm 5G Ultra-Low Latency Suite in Snapdragon X70 allows OEMs and operators to minimize latency for hyper-responsive 5G user experiences and applications.

“Our 5th generation modem-RF system extends our global 5G leadership and the introduction of native 5G AI processing creates a platform and inflection point for performance-enhancing innovations,” said Durga Malladi, senior vice president and general manager, 5G, Mobile Broadband and Infrastructure, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “Snapdragon X70 is an example of how we’re realizing the full potential of 5G and making an intelligently connected world possible.”

The Qualcomm 5G AI Suite includes:
● AI-based channel-state feedback and dynamic optimization
● World’s 1st AI-based mmWave beam management for superior mobility and coverage robustness
● AI-based network selection for superior mobility and link robustness
● AI-based adaptive antenna tuning for up to 30% improved context detection for higher average speeds and coverage

Snapdragon X70 features include:
● World’s only comprehensive 5G modem-RF system family capable of supporting every commercial 5G band from 600 MHz to 41 GHz, offering flexibility to OEMs for designing devices capable of supporting global operator requirements
● Unmatched global band support and spectrum aggregation capabilities including world’s first 4X downlink carrier aggregation across TDD and FDD, mmWave-sub-6 aggregation
● Standalone mmWave support to allow MNOs and service providers to deploy services such as fixed wireless access and enterprise 5G, without needing sub-6 GHz spectrum
● Unmatched uplink performance and flexibility with uplink carrier aggregation and switched uplink support across TDD and FDD
● True global 5G multi-SIM including Dual-SIM Dual-Active (DSDA) and mmWave support
● Upgradeable architecture allowing rapid commercialization of 5G Release 16 features through software updates

Qualcomm says customer sampling of Snapdragon X70 is expected to begin in the second half of 2022 and commercial mobile devices are expected to be launched by late 2022. While Apple is currently using modems from Qualcomm for the iPhone, it's unclear if the iPhone 14 will get the X70. Due to the time needed for development and production, it's more likely the next generation iPhone will have an X65 modem.
