Qualcomm announces first LTE Cat 6 chipset

Written by Fudzilla staff



Snapdragon 805 and Gobi 9x35 modem

Qualcomm made a curious announcement today, saying that Samsung’s Galaxy S5 LTE-A is powered by its chipset.

We already knew Qualcomm silicon was in the S5, but now the company is saying that its Snapdragon 805 is backed by the Gobi 9x35 modem, which is an LTE Advanced Category 6 modem. The Gobi 9x35 is the first commercially available 20nm modem and it is also the first LTE Cat 6 modem to hit the market.

“The modem is backwards compatible with major cellular technologies including WCDMA /MC-HSPA, CDMA 1x/EVDO Rev. B, GSM/EDGE and TD-SCDMA. The solution also features the WTR3925 transceiver, the mobile industry's first commercial 28nm RF chip, which supports the major 3GPP-approved radio frequency bands and carrier aggregation combinations on a single chip,” the company said in a press release. “The LTE Cat 6 device is designed to provide consumers with download speeds of up to 300 Mbps and more efficient power consumption.”

Qualcomm is overselling the new Gobi part, saying the SD805/Gobi 9x35 combo will support Ultra HD streaming, including streaming to external devices (which does not have much to do with the modem).
Still, it is the first Cat 6 modem capable of hitting 300Mbps, so we have to give credit where credit is due.
