Now that carriers have been lighting up their 5G networks, it’s likely notebook vendors will come out with always-connected 5G models. And chipmaker MediaTek is making sure they’ll have the proper components to do it. The company early on Tuesday unveiled its next-gen solutions for 5G devices, including a modem that will deliver 5G connectivity to the future generation of connected laptops, as well as a high-end chip that will power some of next year’s flagship smartphones.

By 2022 , a 4 G connection will generate nearly twice as much traffic on average as a 3G Another significant trend is the growth of smartphones (including phablets) from 50 percent share of The explosion of mobile applications and the expanded reach of mobile connectivity to a growing number

Though in 2019, smartphones with 5G connectivity were newfangled inventions, their popularity is predicted by research firm Gartner to soar over the next few years. The company forecasts that in 2020, 5G devices will make up 12% of mobile phone shipments, which will rise to 43% by 2022.

Over the next few years, Gartner explains that the expansion of 5G service coverage and drop in 5G smartphone prices will lead to this change. Right now, mostly only spendy flagship devices support (or will support it when launched later this year) the new cellular network like Samsung's Galaxy 10 series, Huawei's Mate X and Mate 30 Pro, and OnePlus's 7 Pro, all of which have price tags upward of $800.

The launch of more affordable 5G options and better service will help push global smartphone sales from negative 2% in 2019 to a positive 1.7% in 2020.

By 2023, smartphones with 5G connectivity are expected to make up 50% of all mobile devices shipped.

Qualcomm promises 5G 'with fewer hurdles' on its latest modem .
Qualcomm's an industry leader when it comes to making 5G modems for mobile devices, and so far, its offerings have been in the most prominent smartphones. Following the Snapdragon X50 and X55, Qualcomm is launching the Snapdragon X60, which it says is the world's first 5-nanometer 5G baseband, as well as the first to offer millimeter wave-sub-6 aggregation. The company promises that the X60 will help networks lift 5G peak speeds based on the available spectrum, and that it will enable operators to increase capacity and coverage. The X50 and X55 were capable of supporting speeds up to 5 Gbps and 7 Gbps respectively. The X60, meanwhile, will hit up to 7.
