Leading chip manufacturer Qualcomm has announced an achievement in the world of 5G technology. The company's Snapdragon X75 5G Modem-RF System has managed to achieve a downlink speed of 7.5 Gbps on the sub-6 GHz spectrum, marking a new global record.

According to the company, the accomplishment was made possible through extensive device testing using a 5G standalone (SA) network configuration. This record-breaking speed was attained by skillfully using a total of 300 MHz of spectrum. By employing 4x carrier aggregation (4xCA) along with 4 Time Division Duplex (TDD) channels within a single downlink connection, and leveraging 1024 quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM), the Snapdragon X75 5G Modem-RF System showcased its prowess.
