Snapdragon X60 includes the first 5-nm 5G baseband design.
X60 has the ability to aggregate multiple 5G bands and combinations including mmWave and sub-6 using frequency division duplex (FDD) and time division duplex (TDD).
Includes the Qualcomm QTM535 mmWave antenna module with a more compact design. Qualcomm wouldn't disclose how much smaller the QTM535 is relative to its predecessor.
The 5G modem-to-antenna system can deliver up to 7.5 Gbps download speeds with 3 Gbps upload speeds.
Cristiano Amon, president of Qualcomm, said the ability to aggregate spectrum and flavors of 5G will boost efficiency as well as expand rollouts. Amon also emphasized that Qualcomm will continue to push its antenna designs going forward.
