Qualcomm 5G—Redefining Speed.

Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ Modem-RF Systems set the standard for 5G speed, connecting mobile consumers to new possibilities faster than ever before.

Proof backed by Ookla Speedtest.

See how 5G speeds enabled by Snapdragon and verified by Ookla Speedtest data—are the fastest commercial smartphone speeds yet in the US and Germany. All findings are based on Q1, 2021 analysis by Ookla of Speedtest Intelligence. Ookla is a global leader in mobile and broadband network intelligence, testing applications, and technology.

Snapdragon mmWave 5G continues to change the meaning of fast.

Faster than 4G LTE and Sub-6 GHz 5G.

When powered by the Snapdragon Modem-RF system, average 5G mmWave download speeds in the US are more than 38x faster than those of 4G LTE.1 It also enables average US mmWave 5G download speeds that are even 16x faster than those of sub-6 GHz 5G.2

Snapdragon lets users harness the full power of 5G.

While 5G is revolutionizing connectivity, its full potential can only be unlocked with mmWave. MmWave is 38 times faster than 4G LTE, and we are transforming consumer experiences by putting the full power of 5G into users' hands with Snapdragon.
