5G will be available on your next laptop or PC thanks to Qualcomm

New Snapdragon modules have been announced by Qualcomm that it expects will allow laptops and desktop computers, as well as smartphones, to connect to the 5G network.

Using an M.2 slot, the Snapdragon X65 and X62 Modem-RF systems may be integrated into devices without compromising on their form factor or power efficiency.

During a press conference at Mobile World Congress 2022, Qualcomm CEO Cristiano Amon said that “always-on linked PCs” are emerging as a result of the trend toward remote and hybrid working.

There is “absolutely no stopping the spread of mobile technologies,” he stated. For as long as I can remember, “We’ve always believed in mobile and PC convergence.”

“Today, being able to work from virtually any location is a reality. 5G-connected enterprise productivity is here.

Qualcomm extends the 5G network beyond the mobile device.

Few laptop and PC manufacturers presently provide machines that can take use of the new 5G networking technology, despite the fact that nearly all flagship smartphones have 5G capability.

There will be an increasing need for 5G-capable devices as the number of 5G networks and private 5G deployments in industrial and corporate settings grow.

Last year’s release of reference designs for 5G-enabled gear like as desktops and laptops, as well as XR gadgets and portable games consoles, demonstrated the need for a wider range of 5G-enabled hardware.

Gautam Sheoran, VP Product Management at Qualcomm, stated, “Qualcomm Technologies is making an intelligently linked future conceivable via our expertise in connectivity and high-performance, low-power computing.”

It is additional indication that we are dedicated to supporting the ecosystem and the 5G opportunities beyond smartphones with the release of the Snapdragon X65 & X62 M.2 Modules.
