Just as 3G paved the way for the success of 4G LTE networks, Gigabit LTE is playing an essential role in laying down a foundation for 5G NR networks. As the anchor for the 5G mobile experience, Gigabit LTE is enabling next-generation applications that require fast and reliable connectivity, specifically immersive AR and VR, unlimited cloud storage, rich entertainment, and Android Instant Apps.
At the heart of it all lie Qualcomm Snapdragon Gigabit LTE modems, critical components capable of supporting incredibly fast real-world LTE speeds, up to several hundred megabits per second, in mobile devices. Scroll through to learn more about how Gigabit LTE is transforming the way we interact with our devices.

Full Immersion

Snapdragon Gigabit LTE is designed to support immersive AR and 360-degree VR, with lightning fast download speeds, 4K resolution, and lifelike frame rates and audio. With this combination of technologies, the modem can keep up with you and your device, as frames are engineered to continuously and instantaneously refresh as you move through virtual worlds.

Infinite Storage

Spend a good chunk of your day deleting and rearranging files because of limited storage? Not anymore. Snapdragon Gigabit LTE allows for near immediate access to the cloud, so you can access your files as fast as if they were stored on your device. With gigabit download and upload peak rates, the cloud won’t seem like a distant, hoarding relative, but a dependable companion, almost always at your side.

Rich Entertainment

Super-high-fidelity music and movies won’t only be reserved for your souped-up stereo and TV. Thanks to Snapdragon Gigabit LTE, smartphones can quickly cache ultra-rich media, so you can download up to three hours of entertainment in under three minutes.


Android Instant Apps

No need to fret over smartphone storage for your many mobile apps: Snapdragon Gigabit LTE is engineered to have the speed to support fast loading of Android Instant Apps, a technology that allows you to use an app without downloading and installing it into your device. Once you’re done using the app, it’s out of sight, out of mind.
