Qualcomm thinks its new QTM052 mmWave antenna modules are the answer to that exact conundrum. The solution is and always was the propagation of waves. The San Diego-based company has provided production samples to customers and expects phones with the chips to hit the market early in 2019. The company says that the mobile hotspots are likely to be the first in line to get these modules followed by smartphones.
Big players in U.S. including AT&T and Verizon are betting on mmWave and already committed to bring this technology to the masses in 2019. Qualcomm believes that the technology is ready for large-scale commercialization and it won't be too long until smartphone users have access to blazing fast internet on-the-go. This is because of the "proximity effect", where human hands or bodies can completely block the high-band signal when holding the phone.
After years of hype and tantilizing teaser demonstrations, 5G is now so close you can virtually taste the multi-gigabit wireless speeds. This will allow manufacturers to continue offering smaller form factors along with 5G speeds.
The QTM052 mmWave antenna modules work in tandem with the Snapdragon X50 5G modem. Up to 800 MHz of bandwidth in the 26.5-29.5 GHz (n257), as well as the entire 27.5-28.35 GHz (n261) and 37-40 GHz (n260) mmWave bands are supported. Mm range is best suited to provide 5G coverage in densely populated and densely built-up urban areas and in areas with a large concentration of people and technology, but more coverage 5G NR will be obtained when using frequencies up to 6 GHz.

Online star April the giraffe is pregnant again
It's unclear if the newborn will be a female or male calf, but Patch estimates the pregnancy could take up to 19 months. She has lived at Animal Adventure Park since August 2015 and stands at approximately 15ft tall.
The QPM5650 and QPM5651 include a 5G NR PA/LNA (power amplifier, low-noise amplifier), switch and filtering subsystem. The QDM5650 and QDM5652 feature integrated 5G NR LNA/switch and filtering subsystem for diversity and MIMO support.
The modules include switching created to optimize massive MIMO applications, and cover the 3.3 to 4.2GHz, 3.3 to 3.8GHz, and 4.4 to 5.0GHz bands.
"Qualcomm Technologies' early investment in 5G has allowed us to deliver to the industry a working mobile mmWave solution that was previously thought unattainable, as well as a fully-integrated sub-6GHz RF solution", said Qualcomm president Cristiano Amon.
The chipmaker on Monday unveiled its new QTM052 mmWave and QPM56xx sub-6GHz RF module families.
