Samsung Unveils the World's First 5G Modem - the Exynos 5100

Samsung Mobiles has been on the top edge with its latest AI capable features. The think tank of Samsung has been working on the development of 5G modem for quiet sometime, and the first look of the device has been showcased during this year’s CES.

Today, Samsung has officially announced the first 5G modem and it is titled as Exynos 5100 and complies with the 3GPP standards.

Like the modem in the currently used Exynos 9810 chipset found in the Samsung Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9 plus and Galaxy Note9, the Exynos 5100 modem is built on the 10nm manufacturing process. It is supporting legacy networks like 2G GSM/CDMA, 3G WCDMA, TD-SCDMA, HSPA, and 4G LTE within a single chip solution.

Exynos 5100 is fully capable 5G networking hardware supporting sub-6GHz and mm Wave spectrum defined by the third Generation Partnership Project. This ensures that Exynos 5100 chipset can reach theoretical speeds of up to 2Gbps using the sub-6GHz frequency and up to 6Gbps on the mm Wave. This is 1.7 times and 5 times faster transfer speeds as compared to old versions, when sub-6GHz and the mm Wave setting is used respectively.

This is certainly the most amazing breakthrough for the consumer as well as bridging gap some long anticipated technologies including Internet of Things, real-time AI, holograms, ultra-high resolution videos, and autonomous driving technologies.

The best thing is that Samsung Technologies has promised to bring the modem Exynos 5100 to the end consumer by the end of 2018.
