Qualcomm Propels Global Expansion of 5G RedCap with Snapdragon X35 5G Modem-RF System


  • OEMs and operators select Snapdragon X35 5G Modem-RF System for 5G RedCap to enable smaller and more cost-efficient 5G devices, with launches beginning in 2024.
  • Global mobile leaders accelerate ecosystem advancement with live 5G RedCap trials using the world’s first announced commercial release 17 RedCap modem, the Snapdragon X35 5G Modem-RF System.

As the world’s first announced commercial release 17 5G RedCap modem-RF system, the Snapdragon® X35 5G Modem-RF System continues to fuel the expansion of the 5G ecosystem by enabling global mobile network operators and OEMs to enable new devices, form factors, and experiences.

With strong customer interest in the industry-leading Snapdragon X35 5G Modem-RF System for 5G RedCap devices, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. is extending its wireless leadership – spanning modem, RF transceiver, RF front-end and antenna modules – into a fast-growing opportunity for 5G mobile operators. The Snapdragon X35 brings a new class of 5G that bridges the complexity gap between high-speed mobile broadband devices and extremely low-bandwidth internet of things (IoT) devices. RedCap will enable smaller and more cost-efficient 5G devices and provide longer battery life, thanks to their reduced complexity.

Numerous mobile industry leaders around the world have taken notice and are working with Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. to develop and deploy devices powered by Snapdragon X35.


“5G RedCap is one of the primary pillars of 5G Advanced and is key to the evolution of 5G. It bridges the capability and complexity gap between the extremes in 5G today, and can enable a broader set of devices and services as well as enhance system performance and efficiency,” said Gautam Sheoran, vice president and general manager, wireless and broadband communications, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “We’re pleased to deepen our collaboration with global mobile operators and OEMs to advance the 5G ecosystem, enabling a new and wide range of premium- and entry-level use cases.”
