Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 specs and features

Now that the SD 636 chipset has been announced, Qualcomm is decidedly looking at the future. In addition to the Snapdragon X50 5G modem chipset, the demonstration also utilized the SDR051 mmWave RF transceiver integrated circuit (IC).

"Achieving the world's first announced 5G data connection with the Snapdragon X50 5G modem chipset on 28GHz mmWave spectrum is truly a testament to Qualcomm Technologies' leadership in 5G and extensive expertise in mobile connectivity", said Cristiano Amon, executive vice president of company subsidiary Qualcomm Technologies, which carried out the tests.

The Kryo 260 now powering the SD636 is in fact the same force behind the central processing speed of the Snapdragon 660, although the former's eight CPU cores are understandably clocked lower, at up to 1.8 GHz.

Qualcomm is nearing its march towards commercial availability of 5G with its recent announcements at its 4G/5G Summit.

By using the 5G chip, Qualcomm has been able to achieve gigabit speed using "several 100MHz 5G carriers". So they can switch to 4G for reliability. The 5G modem was launched 1 year back and the test has been performed with 28GHz mm-wave frequency.

Qualcomm 5G smartphone reference designQualcomm 5G device reference design. The demo device was a Qualcomm reference design and not a production phone. Qualcomm plans to ship the Snapdragon 636 to phone makers in November, and we're likely to see brands come out with more mid-range smartphones with ultra-wide displays soon enough. Currently, only the LG V30 supports the new spectrum and Qualcomm wants to make sure that more devices can support the new spectrum before the end of this year.

The end result is that companies looking to sell into the USA market, and others that roll out their own low frequency bands in the future, will be able to make full use of 600 MHz network capabilities.

Qualcomm's 4G networks are now working fine in nearly all the countries which offers wireless data transfer speed 450 megabits a second to 650 megabits a second.

Connectivity-wise, the Snapdragon 636 is equipped with the X12 modem and can facilitate up to 600 Mbps download speed and 150 Mbps upload speed through cellular networks.
