The solution is intended to “fuel the expansion of the 5G ecosystem by enabling global mobile network operators and OEMs to enable new devices, form factors, and experiences.” The X35, which is engineered for RedCap (reduced capability) devices, “bridges the complexity gap between high-speed mobile broadband devices and extremely low-bandwidth Internet of Things devices.”

The product – again, according to Qualcomm – “will enable smaller and more cost-efficient 5G devices and provide longer battery life, thanks to their reduced complexity.”

Qualcomm vice president, Gautam Sheoranm, said: “RedCap is one of the primary pillars of 5G Advanced and is key to the evolution of 5G. It bridges the capability and complexity gap between the extremes in 5G today and can enable a broader set of devices and services as well as enhance system performance and efficiency.

“We’re pleased to deepen our collaboration with global mobile operators and OEMs to advance the 5G ecosystem, enabling a new and wide range of premium- and entry-level use cases.”
