It was also announced at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show. Now the company has announced that they have succeeded in making their 5G modem. Samsung has named this modem Exynos 5100. This is Samsung’s first modem, built to 3GPP standards.
Like the Exynos 9810 modem used in the Samsung Galaxy S9, S9 Plus and Note 9, the Exynos 5100 is built on a 10nm process.
This modem supports 2G GSM / CDMA, 3G WCDMA, TD-SCDMA, HSPA, and 4G LTE networks.
This modem is capable of 5G networking hardware supporting sub-6GHz and mmWave spectrum as specified by 3GPP or 3rd Generation Partnership Project. mmWave can be up to 6 gigabits per second, which is 1.7 times and 5 times more than previous modems, respectively.
This tremendous speed will also revolutionize the Internet of Things, holograms, ultra high resolution videos, real time AI and automated driving technology.
Best of all, Samsung has promised to make this modem available to the general public by the end of 2018.
