The roll out of 5G has been somewhat painful to watch, with a variety of questionable marketing techniques and a staggered roll out. The Inquirer dropped by MWC to see how much progress the various vendors, such as Qualcomm, Intel and Huawei are faring at the moment. Qualcomm will be rolling out their new X55 to market some time this year, offering up to 7Gbps download speeds with similar power requirements to the existing LTE 4G chips. Huawei expects delays, for reasons obvious to those who follow the news and Intel is not expecting to deliver anything until next year.
Take a peek at the picture below for an idea of how segmented the standard is at the moment and then head over for a more detailed look.
"If you've been following closely, leading vendors have been subtly playing down expectations and that's closer to reality. The missing bits of Release 15 were delayed three months to focus on stability, the 3GPP said at the time."
