Samsung launches Exynos 5300 5G modem with ‘wired’ download speed
Samsung has introduced a new generation 5G modem called Exynos 5300. It is designed for use in future Google Tensor chips, and differs from its predecessor in a number of technical improvements, including increased data transfer speed.
The modem is manufactured using a 4nm process technology, which makes it much more energy efficient than previous generation solutions. Claimed maximum download speeds on 5G networks are up to 10 Gbps with ultra-low latency thanks to FR1, FR2 and EN-DC technologies, and uploads up to 3.87 Gbps. In LTE networks, these figures are up to 3 Gb / s and up to 422 Mb / s, respectively.
The Exynos Modem 5300 5G is compliant with the Release 16 3GPP 5G NR standard, which aims to improve mobile internet speed, and also supports mmWave and sub-6GHz band in SA and NSA modes. The novelty can be connected to the mobile chip via a PCIe connection.
It is expected that the novelty will debut as part of the Google Pixel 8 series smartphones, which will be released in the second half of this year.
