ZTE unveils Gigabit phone with 1Gbps download speed
Gigabit phone Unveiled
- ZTE launched the first phone that can reach gigabit speeds at its booth at Mobile World Congress-2017 in Barcelona.
- It is named ZTE Gigabit Phone and is the first device with Qualcomm’s latest CPU Snapdragon 835 with X16 LTE modem for achieving extremely fast connectivity – over ten times than previous LTE devices.
Gigabit phone : Technology
- The ZTE Gigabit Phone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, which features an integrated Snapdragon X16 LTE modem.
- It has 4×4 MIMO antenna technology and 256-QM modulation to achieve massive download speeds.
- The Gigabit Phone processes data three times faster in the same network, compared with other LTE devices. 1 Gbps of Internet speed is said to allow 360-degree VR, instant cloud storage, and streaming HQ music and movies.
- The Gigabit Phone isn’t really a phone. It includes many of the internal features which can expect in a phone, including a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, but the display only shows a speed test, and its real purpose is to show off the company’s networking prowess.
Gigabit phone : 5G
- ZTE independently developed its Pre5G Giga+ MBB solution and demonstrated it to visitors of its booth at MWC.
- While the gigabit technology isn’t 5G, it’s clear that ZTE wants to wrap itself in the 5G hype, one of the hottest trends in the wireless industry that’s supposed to transform our society through faster, more ubiquitous coverage.
- ZTE calls it “pre 5G,” featuring technologies that will help provide massive speed boost to bridge the gap during carriers’ transitions from 4G to 5G networks.
- ZTE named it as “5uper Generation” (it’s pronounced “super”) phone and talks about its strength in the 5G and pre-5G fields.
