Samsung’s new LTE modem technology supports 1.2Gbps download speed
Yesterday, Samsung revealed its newly developed LTE modem technology, the Cat.18 6CA-supported, which enables maximum downlink speed of 1.2 gigabits per second (Gbps).
Early this year, the Samsung Exynos 9 Series (8895) SoC presented its Cat.16 LTE modem with 1.0GB of downlink speed and the company’s first 5CA support. And now, by working closely with Anritsu, a telecommunication measuring instrument provider, Samsung’s new Cat.18 6CA-supported LTE modem technology achieves up to 1.2 Gbps downlink speed. With this, smartphone users can download a full-length movie in HD resolution within 10 seconds. They will also enjoy a buffer-less video calls, and mobile live-broadcasting.
“The 1.2Gbps maximum downlink speed with 6CA support highlights Samsung’s leading design capabilities and well-positions Samsung for the upcoming 5G era.” said Woonhaing Hur, Vice President of System LSI Protocol Development at Samsung Electronics.
Samsung’s smartphone processor adopting the new Cat.18 6CA-supported LTE modem technology is expected to roll out by the end of this year.
