“We are focused on bringing 5G to everyone…We have more than 60 OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) who have launched or announced 5G devices and we have more than 375 5G devices either in the market or out. 5G is deploying much more rapidly than 4G,” Deepu John, senior director of product management at Qualcomm, said.
“In the same time duration, after 5G deployment started, we have had more than 60 operators in 30-plus countries and more than 40 OEMs launching 5G devices. In fact this year, Qualcomm expects 175-225 million 5G handsets to be sold worldwide. So you can see the sheer scale and breadth of adoption of 5G,” he said.
John explained while 5G capability is available in premium smartphones, the company wants to “bring more flagship experiences” like immersive camera and intensive and interactive gaming to billions of people.
