From November 5 to 10, 2019, the second China International Import Expo was held in Shanghai. As one of the first high-tech multinational enterprises to be confirmed to participate in this year's Import Expo, Qualcomm demonstrated the important cooperation achievements with Chinese partners since 5g commercial use, as well as the future evolution and development direction of 5g technology at the nearly 200 square meter booth in the 5.1 Museum of Shanghai National Convention and Exhibition Center with the theme of life science and technology. 2019 is the first year of 5g business in China. This time, Qualcomm focused on displaying a number of commercial mobile phones released by Chinese mobile phone manufacturers based on Qualcomm's 5g solution. These commercial 5g mobile phones fully demonstrate the efforts of Qualcomm to work with Chinese industrial partners to jointly promote 5g accelerated realization in the past year. In addition, Qualcomm also demonstrated the latest R & D progress and future development direction of 5g. These fundamental breakthroughs will continue to promote the expansion of 5g in the future and generate a wide range of innovative use cases, demonstrating Qualcomm's determination and belief to continue to deepen cooperation with China's industrial partners.
The sample variable product 5G is in the reach of the hand
Last year, visitors saw 5g mobile test platform for 5g system interoperability test in the laboratory and field at the Qualcomm booth of China International Expo. This year, Qualcomm showed a number of commercial 5g terminals, including Lenovo Z6 Pro 5g, Nubian Mini 5g, one plus 7 Pro 5g, oppo Reno 5g, vivo nex 3 5g, vivo iqoo Pro 5g, Xiaomi 9 Pro 5g, ZTE Tianji axon 10 Pro 5g, ZTE mc801 5g CPE and China Mobile's pioneer x1, P1 / P2 CPE, etc. Visitors can experience the fast experience brought by 5g connection through these smartphones on site.
In order to better support the development process of 5g and enable 5g to expand at all terminal levels and benefit many consumers faster, Qualcomm announced in September that it will accelerate the commercial process of 5g on a large scale through the 5g mobile platform product portfolio across 8 series, 7 series and 6 series of snapdragon. Qualcomm also leads the transition from 5g terminal design mode to system level solution through a complete commercial chipset solution integrating modem, RF transceiver and RF front-end, helping terminal manufacturers reduce the complexity of product development and accelerate the time to market of products. All of these show the new cooperation space between Qualcomm and China's industrial partners. Qualcomm also hopes to strengthen cooperation and exchanges with more customers and industrial partners in China and develop together through the platform of Import Expo.
Terminal rich and diverse 5g continuous development
In 2020, the key words for the development of 5G will be
At the same time, 5G will continue to change the user's interactive experience. Qualcomm is actively driving the application of 5G in XR (including VR virtual reality and AR augmented reality). Take Qualcomm's already introduced XR header display for 5G smartphone as an example, which refers to AR or VR glasses, which can be connected to high-performance 5G mobile phones through USB Type-C connections. by dealing with a large number of loads on smartphones, the header display devices can adopt more comfortable and portable design to provide users with a more friendly interactive experience. At the same time, Qualcomm is also promoting the application of XR in the industry, which Qualcomm announced in September.
5g will also transform cars. 5g's large bandwidth can provide higher speed and capacity for vehicle information processing and in vehicle information entertainment. 5g v2x will provide over the horizon sensors for vehicles, support delay sensitive safety use cases, and provide important support for the evolution of automatic driving. Qualcomm has been working with a wide range of Chinese automotive ecosystem partners to demonstrate safe and reliable cellular car networking direct communication technology, paving the way for China's c-v2x commercial deployment in 2020. In addition, Qualcomm has launched the industry's first 5g dual card dual pass vehicle platform and the latest 4G LTE advanced pro level platform portfolio. In the future, Qualcomm is also looking forward to opening a new era of safe, efficient and intelligent travel together with its Chinese automotive ecosystem partners.
Technology driven innovation 5g in the future
As the innovation engine of the global mobile communication industry, Qualcomm's innovation achievements in 5g technology and its industrial application in the vertical field also deserve attention. At Qualcomm's booth, visitors can learn about the technical focus of the next 5g standard new version, as well as Qualcomm's technical solutions for various vertical fields.
Taking millimeter wave evolution as an example, on October 19, 2019, Qualcomm and ZTE successfully achieved China's first 5g millimeter wave interoperability test (iodt) based on smart phones, marking an important development milestone in millimeter wave technology verification, laying a foundation for further discussion of China's millimeter wave commercial deployment. At present, some countries have deployed millimeter wave network, showing the advantages of this technology, and some terminal manufacturers have also launched commercial smartphones supporting 5g millimeter wave. The realization of millimeter wave mobility has been regarded as an impossible technical challenge in the industry. Qualcomm has done a lot of basic research and development work in millimeter wave technology, and has successfully proved to the industry that millimeter wave can be well applied in smart phones.
According to the latest IHS research, the economic value created by 5g will reach US $13.2 trillion by 2035, up by US $1 trillion compared with the previous forecast. 5g is the opening song of a new round of scientific and technological revolution and industrial transformation, which will be an innovation platform for the next decade. Following the establishment of $100 million artificial intelligence (AI) venture capital fund by Qualcomm in 2018, Qualcomm announced the establishment of another $200 million 5g investment fund this year to invest in 5g ecosystem enterprises, develop new innovative 5g use cases, and support 5g innovative enterprises to embrace the huge opportunities contained in 5g.
Enter the Expo and then set out
According to the information of the host agency, the second time of participating in the country and the region, the number of exhibitors exceeded the first, with more than 3,000 exhibitors from more than 150 countries, regions and international organizations in the world, and the new heights of China's open cooperation were marked. Mr. Meng, chairman of Qualcomm China, said,
