The exhibition MWC 2016 was extremely successful for Qualcomm: the flagship Snapdragon processor and equipped with 820 LG G5, and a version of the Galaxy S7. Today, the company expressed its interest in a speedy exit 5G technology to the masses, noting that for her fifth-generation mobile network - is not just a new level in data transfer speed. At the moment, the manufacturer is considering the introduction of 5G technologies and next-generation Snapdragon processors. In spite of the popular opinion that the smartphone market is oversaturated,

CEO of Qualcomm's Steve Mollenkopf believes that growth prospects in 5G are huge and they have a positive impact on the mobile segment.

We consider 5G not only as an evolution of the existing standard, but as an opportunity interpenetration of industries and a plurality of mobile networks. Access to the existing LTE standard have only 15% of the population. This leaves a huge space for the transition of many new users to mobile Internet. The case remains for small: the development of new, more affordable technologies and production of smartphones for the mass consumer.

Qualcomm has already started preliminary work on the next generation of processors. As for the fifth-generation mobile networks, before their official debut it is at least several years. Full-scale testing 5G will be held not earlier than in 2018 ( preliminary tests will spend a little earlier), and the first services should not wait until 2020.
