World’s Fastest: Qualcomm X75 5G modem Achieves 7.5Gbps Sub-6GHz 5G Downlink Speed

Qualcomm is at it again, pushing the boundaries of 5G connectivity, chipmaker announced today that it has achieved speeds up to 7.5Gbps in Sub-6GHz frequency bands – setting a new record for 5G in mid-band spectrum.

This blazing fast speed was accomplished using Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon X75 5G modem along with carrier aggregation technology. By combining multiple chunks of 5G spectrum together, Qualcomm was able to unlock ultra-wide bandwidth and lightning-quick data transfers.

We first got a glimpse of the Snapdragon X75 at MWC 2023. Qualcomm touted its 10Gbps capabilities but real-world use cases were sparse. This new demo proves the X75 has the chops to deliver next-gen 5G speeds way beyond most people’s home Wi-Fi.

So how did they hit 7.5Gbps? Qualcomm utilized all of the X75’s tricks – 4 component carrier aggregation in TDD bands, 1024QAM modulation, and 100MHz of total spectrum. With a 5G standalone network configuration optimized for the test, the stars aligned to produce an incredible downlink.

While these lab speeds won’t directly translate to real-world performance, it’s a very promising demo of what the Snapdragon X75 can achieve, expect the first X75-powered phones to arrive later this year.

Blazing fast 5G is coming, and Qualcomm continues to push the pace of innovation. But for many, 5G still feels like a work in progress. Our connectivity won’t change overnight, but new milestones like 7.5Gbps prove the future keeps getting brighter.
