Semiconductor sizeSmall semiconductors provide better performance and reduced power consumption. Chipsets with a higher number of transistors, semiconductor components of electronic devices, offer more computational power. A small form factor allows more transistors to fit on a chip, therefore increasing its performance.

CPU speedThe CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.

Big.LITTLE technologyUsing big.LITTLE technology, a chip can switch between two sets of processor cores to maximize performance and battery life. For example, when playing a game the more powerful cores will be used to increase performance, whereas checking email will use the less powerful cores to maximize battery life.

Heterogeneous Multi-Processing (HMP)Heterogeneous Multi-Processing (HMP) is a more advanced version of big.LITTLE technology. In this setup, a processor can utilize all cores at the same time, or just a single core for low-intensity tasks. This can provide powerful performance or increased battery life respectively.

Mobile chipsets are the powerhouse of a cellphone. Unlike their desktop counterparts, mobile chipsets are run on low-voltage and consume less power to conserve the battery life of devices such as smartphones. However, don’t let the efficiency fool you into thinking that their performance is inferior. Mobile devices nowadays are powerful mini-computers capable of performing high-computing tasks, especially if the processor has 5G capabilities.

Looking for a mobile chipset with 5G? They’re slowly becoming more popular, and as more cellphone manufacturers produce phones with 5G capabilities, and more networks increase their coverage, you’ll soon begin to see more people harnessing the power of 5G.

What is 5G?

Several companies within the mobile ecosystem are helping bring 5G to life. However, Qualcomm is one of the most important players at the forefront of 5G mobile technology. As the next wireless standard, 5G is hailed by Qualcomm as a “unifying connectivity fabric for our society.” It offers extreme reliability, ultra-low latency, multi-gigabit speed, and virtually unlimited capacity. From drone delivery to smart logistics, 5G will affect every area of society but is especially crucial concerning mobile devices.

5G cellphones

If you’re looking for a 5G mobile chipset, you’ll first need to identify whether or not your smartphone supports 5G. Released only recently in 2019, consumer cellphones that support 5G are still few and far between, as mobile networks and cellphone companies work to adjust devices according to the new technology. It’s also important to note that you’ll need to ensure that 5G is available in your area. Following the T-Mobile and Sprint merger, the company announced that they plan to roll out broad mid-band 5G coverage across many cities throughout 2021.

Types of 5G

When looking for a 5G phone or mobile chipset with 5G, it’s essential to understand that there are a few different types of 5G.

Low-band

Middle-band

High-band

DSS

Low-band 5G provides quite a bit of coverage but not much speed, and when you get up to high-band 5G, it’s the opposite; there isn’t much coverage yet, but you’ll notice faster speeds. DSS refers to a network that fluctuates the connection between 4G and 5G.

Not every phone with 5G capabilities supports every type of 5G as it’s dependent on the mobile chipset powering the phone. And not every mobile network carrier supports every kind of 5G either. This is an important factor to consider when choosing a 5G phone and carrier. For example, the Moto Z4 supports only high-band 5G, which means that you might not be able to enjoy all of the features and functions of 5G if you’re in an area with little coverage.
