Qualcomm has set the world record in 5G speed with its Snapdragon X75 modem clocking 7.5 Gbps downlink speed. The milestone is a key takeaway for the US-based semiconductor giant as it creates another benchmark in fifth-generation wireless communication technology.
The 5G ecosystem is growing with chipmakers, telcos, and smartphone manufacturers gearing up with their products and solutions. And speed remains the “shock and awe” factor of this next-generation mobile communication standard. So, chipmakers are at the bragging rights to get the better of the other in bringing the most speedy and power-efficient chips to power newer handsets. Qualcomm, the California-based tech firm is one of the leaders in the 5G realm with its array of 5G chips.
And the one in concern here is the Snapdragon X75 5G Modem-RF System launched in February at MWC 2023. Successor to the iconic Snapdragon X70, the high-end chip is 2.5 more AI-efficient and brings better speed, coverage, and power efficiency. The latest figure from the test reflects the company’s ambition to get more breakthroughs for its hardware.

Qualcomm Snapdragon X75 5G modem achieves an invincible download speed
The Snapdragon X75 achieved the speed benefiting from the 300 MHz of spectrum (Sub-6 GHz Band). The process had support from the 4x Carrier Aggregation (CA) in 4 Time Division Duplexing (TDD) channels. Likewise, 1024 quadrature amplitude modulation QAM was used in a single downlink connection. These technical specifications resulted in the 7.5 Gbps downlink speed for the next-gen 5G modem. Also, with credit to the company, the test was carried out in a 5G standalone (SA) architecture.
Qualcomm says that the latest speed results enable X75 better user experience, faster download and upload speeds, coverage, and power efficiency. As with every premium modem, this one will be able to handle all network-sensitive tasks devices might push to it.
X70 which powers flagship smartphones such as Samsung Galaxy 23 achieved a 3.3 Gbps download speed on the T-Mobile network. X75 is expected to double that speed. While real-world experience is always less, still the difference will be remarkable as the latest specs and capabilities make it more efficient. So, users who want to boast the fastest speeds on their smartphones will find this modem perfect by default.
Snapdragon X75 5G modem is the world’s first 5G modem for 5G-Advanced and will debut with 5G smartphones in the second half of 2023.
