Qualcomm Bringing Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2 to Phones This Year
Qualcomm has announced the latest version of its FastConnect solution, which provides the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth functions for their phone chipsets. The FastConnect 6900 and 6700 support Bluetooth 5.2, Bluetooth LE Audio, and Wi-Fi 6E. These new FastConnect solutions will be integrated into Snapdragon-powered phones that will go on sale before the end of the year, according to Qualcomm. Wi-Fi 6E includes the 6 GHz band recently approved by the FCC, which opens up a relatively huge new swath of radio waves for Wi-Fi. Qualcomm claims the FastConnect 6700 supports peak Wi-Fi speeds approaching 3 Gpbs. By supporting 4-stream Dual Band Simultaneous (DBS) technology, the FastConnect 6900 supports Wi-Fi speeds up to 3.6 Gbps, which Qualcomm claims is the fastest in the industry for a mobile solution. By supporting Bluetooth LE Audio, the new solution supports audio sharing and broadcast audio. Qualcomm's new solution also supports dual Bluetooth antennas with intelligent switching, for better reliability and range.
