5G

5G is poised to make quite an impact on our world with its faster, fiber-like speeds, lower latency (near one millisecond), greater capacity to accommodate billions of IoT devices, as well as higher reliability and availability. Developers will be able to use 5G’s enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB) for new immersive XR experiences, create applications with mission-critical control that can transform industries, and build massive IoT applications.

Helping to fuel the 5G push are powerful devices such as those powered by the Snapdragon® mobile platforms including the Snapdragon 8 mobile platform. We have a number of development tools listed below to help you with your projects, and some additional resources to get you up to speed on all that 5G offers
