Why your next smartphone will make your home broadband look embarrassingly slow 1

This upgrade has been made possible thanks to the latest kit from Qualcomm — its new Snapdragon X60 5G Modem-RF System, which can be tucked inside mobile devices for the ultimate speed boost. To help manufacturers achieve the perfect form-factor, this new platform features a more compact design than the previous generation which allows for thinner, sleeker smartphones.

This is the third-generation 5G modem from Qualcomm and is comfortably the fastest, with the US company boasting its Snapdragon X60 allows for fibre-like internet speeds and low latency internet delivered over 5G.

Of course, outside of the optimum lab conditions, it’s unlikely many will get the full 7.5Gbps that Qualcomm are stating but even if half that speed is achieved in the real world it will still be considerably quicker than any broadband that’s currently available. 

5G is the future of mobile technology with all big UK networks now investing heavily in upgrading their current 4G infrastructure. Many of the world’s biggest phone firms are also launching more 5G- ready handsets and Apple is rumoured to be working on a superfast iPhone which could launch later this year.
