and 5g modem as an option
Qualcomm lets his upcoming high-end soc produce at 7nm. In addition, manufacturers can combine the Snapdragon-soc with a 5g modem, allowing them to release phones that support 5g.

Through the wording it seems as if the X50 modem for 5g is not built in, but that manufacturers can choose to combine the soc with the modem. That is also obvious, because Qualcomm has the X50 modem produced at 10nm, which makes integration with the new Snapdragon soc difficult; that is what the processor designer makes at 7nm. This makes the integration of the X24 modem more obvious. That is a 7nm chip.

Qualcomm wants to bring out the details of the soc before the end of the year, according to the announcement . The manufacturer has not disclosed how the soc will be called. The predecessor is called Snapdragon 845, which makes names like Snapdragon 850 or 855 obvious, although there are also rumors that he will be called Snapdragon 8150 .

The American company says that manufacturers have received samples from the new soc. This usually happens about half a year before it appears in new smartphones. They are therefore expected to be on the market in the first half of next year, as has been the case for new Snapdragon societies for years.

It will not be the first smartphones with a 7nm-soc. Among others, Huawei has already announced that its Kirin 980 will be made at 7nm. The first smartphones with that soc appear this autumn. Apple may also let the A12-soc for its upcoming iPhones also produce at 7nm.
