LG Q92 5G and other Q smartphones with 5G coming soon 3

LG Q92 5G and other Q smartphones with 5G coming soon

LG once was one of the companies leading the smartphone industry, but we can say that the company has experienced with the LG G2 the last of its glorious days. Since this handset, the company has been losing more and more user base. Hence, the Chinese wave of companies came and left the South-Korean firm with a struggling smartphone business. The truth is that for the past few years, LG has failed to provide solid smartphones to compete in this competitive segment. This year, the company decided to change its smartphone business by killing its infamous LG-series. Instead of a new LG G phone, the company announced the LG Velvet 5G. Now, the company wants to expand its offer of 5G smartphones even more with the LG Q92 5G. The LG Velvet looks like a nice refreshment featuring a brand new design language with waterdrop notch and a raindrop triple camera setup. The handset also boasts seamless 5G connectivity thanks to the Snapdragon 765G. The problem is that the Velvet is too expensive for what it offers. There are flagship smartphones like the Redmi K30 Pro that costs less and offers a massive performance bump thanks to its Snapdragon 865G. While the company can’t help by reducing the price of the Velvet, it seems to be planning a new wave of mid-range phones featuring 5G connectivity. The LG Q92 5G will be the affordable version of LG Velvet
5G has been out since the last year, but we can say that the true party has just started now that companies are shipping mid-rangeRead More…

iPhone 12 Will Support 5G: But Which 5G Technology Will It Come With? 4

iPhone 12 Will Support 5G: But Which 5G Technology Will It Come With?

In the fall, Apple will release its next-gen iPhones. And we are waiting for a furor. Especially, the Apple fans are waiting for 5G to appear on the iPhones. In fact, we have heard the iPhone 12 will support 5G technology. But which 5G technology is it going to use? There is currently no accurate statement. Moreover, a new supply chain report does not completely answer the question. But it does reveal a little possibility that not all iPhones will use the same 5G network standard. Let us talk about the background first. There are currently two main 5G technologies, called Sub-6 and mmWave (hereinafter referred to as millimeter wave). Both frequencies are used by 5G signals. Among them, Sub-6 uses low and medium frequency bands below 6GHz, and millimeter waves use high-frequency bands from 24GHz to 39GHz.
The former is considered to be a transition technology, which provides faster speeds than 4G LTE, and the improvement is not so great. But this technology can indeed reduce the waiting time and does not require the high density of cellular network base stations. We mean it is capable of using the existing 4G base station equipment. So most users can achieve the nominal speed of 100-150Mbps. Millimeter-wave is a faster standard. Theoretically, the actual speed is about 500Mbps. However, its wavelength is very short. So it is susceptible to interference, which requires greater base station density. This means that it will only be available in very limited areas, such as aRead More…

Nokia adds Broadcom to the list of custom-made 5G chips suppliers

Nokia has just signed a contract with Broadcom that will bring custom-made 5G chipsets for the smartphone brand. It is the third major company to sign such a deal after Intel and Marvell back in March. Through this contract, the Finnish company will be able to expand its presence in the market and increase shipments. The brand expects 35% of all 5G products to be equipped with this custom-made 5G chip by the end of 2020. Broadcom will be busy in the coming months to ensure Nokia’s demand. Industry insiders state that Broadcom, along with the two other chipmakers, will help Nokia expand its ReefShark-branded platform. It is used in AirScale radio products while reducing the size and power consumption. Moreover, these companies want to deliver the improvements in the same time providing capacity and a major performance overhaul.
Due to the cost and supply chain challenges, Nokia had to rethink its decision to use Field Programmable Gate Arrays for its 5G equipment which is more flexible, but also more expensive. Sandro Tavares, Nokia’s head of mobile networks marketing, told Reuters that the company still stands by the decision to use FPGAs. According to him, the market is evolving fastly and Nokia needs to speed up the process of developing new suppliers.
