The 855 chipset Snapdragon Fusion will get built in 5G modem
Today Japanese telecommunications giant SoftBank reported to investors about their successes over the last nine months of last year. In particular, it was noted that the primary North American asset is SoftBank – mobile operator Sprint is already preparing for the introduction of technologies of mobile Internet 5G. It helps Samsung, Nokia and Ericsson to supply Telecom equipment. Important, according to SoftBank, and the role of Qualcomm – the company that will make the 5G network available to users of smartphones, setting the modem SDX50 the 855 chipset Snapdragon Fusion.
This is a very interesting statement: previously, Qualcomm has not announced the name of its first 5G chip, and the rumors predicted that he could receive the fastest, but still 4G modem. Now there is a very precise confirmation of the fact that the next top-end Snapdragon will support a new generation of cellular networks. Of interest is the fact that at 855-go chip will be called «Fusion». Previously, Qualcomm did not give the names of their chipsets, and now decided to start doing it, and the same word, which a year and a half ago I started this tradition the Apple (after the license plate is A7/A8/A9 A10 followed by Fusion). Particularly interesting such borrowing amid an ongoing court confrontation between Apple and Qualcomm.
