Connectivity is essential.

It’s one of the many lessons we’re learning during this unprecedented time. It’s critical to our ability to work, learn, entertain ourselves, and even receive medical care. It has also become a lifeline for many, allowing us to bridge the distance and keep in touch with family, friends, and colleagues.

Yes, technologies like 5G, Wi-Fi 6, Cloud, and AI allow us to connect in new and innovative ways, but they’re also much more than that. They provide a foundation for a digital transformation that will carry us into the future.  

So, what comes next? A new generation of intelligent devices that are always on and always connected to the cloud; new immersive experiences and services that go far beyond what we have today.    

In his opening keynote at IFA 2020, Qualcomm President Cristiano Amon detailed the work we’re doing to drive the mobile ecosystem forward. He spoke about our exciting, new collaboration with Live Nation, the world’s leading live entertainment company, and a new generation of mobile PC technology, introducing the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 5G Compute Platform for Always On, Always Connected PCs (ACPCs). 

For 35 years, Qualcomm has boldly conquered the complex and solved “impossible” challenges. Today, we are the world’s leading wireless technology innovator, inventing the technologies that help the world be more connected and more intelligent. And we continue to the develop the breakthrough technologies that will help our partners build a better future for us all.
