Snapdragon X70 5G Modem Specs and Features

Qualcomm claims Snapdragon X70 5G is the “world’s only comprehensive 5G modem-RF system family capable of supporting every commercial 5G band from 600 MHz to 41 GHz.”

Although that’s a positive sign for the rollout of 5G, what’s more, intriguing is the support it offers for the built-in 5G AI processor that will harness the capabilities of AI to boost “speeds, coverage, latency, mobility, link robustness, and power efficiency.”

Qualcomm provides details on the Snapdragon X70 modem, which comes with Gigabit 5G and a standalone mmWave capability 5G Dual SIM Dual-Active (DSDA) as 4x downlink carrier aggregation and uplink carrier aggregate.

The stated speeds for download and upload are as high as 3.5Gbps and up to 10Gbps.

Due to a 4nm technology and a technology known as PowerSave Gen 3, the new modem provides 60% more power efficient than its predecessor.

Qualcomm FastConnect 7800 modem Specs and Features

The device operates using a 14nm process and will be powered by WiFi 7.7 and Bluetooth 5.3. Qualcomm has provided this modem using High Band Simultaneous (HBS) Multi-Link technology which “leverages two WiFi radios for four streams of high band connectivity in 5GHz and 6GHz bands”.

In addition, FastConnect 7800 is also equipped to run four streams DBS (Dual-Band simultaneous) that maintains ultra-low latency up to 2ms.
If it’s connected to a channel with 320MHz on a 6GHz spectrum, the speed can be increased to 5.8Gbps.
It also allows 2.4GHz in Bluetooth and WiFi with lower bandwidth.

FastConnect drives Bluetooth 5.3 with Dual Bluetooth radios for enhanced connectivity when it comes to Bluetooth. Interestingly, Qualcomm states that FastConnect 7800 can play 16-bit lossless audio on CD.

There are standard enhancements in terms of coverage (2x) and efficacy (up to 50 percent) as well as overall connectivity (it can pair up in only half the amount of time).

When asked about the new developments, Qualcomm VP and GM, Mobile Compute and Connectivity, declared, “Coupled with up to 50% lower power consumption and Intelligent Dual Bluetooth with advanced Snapdragon Sound capabilities, FastConnect 7800 is simply the best client connectivity offering in the industry”.
