Let’s take a look at all the new features that the Qualcomm FastConnect 7800 system offers.
Qualcomm FastConnect 7800: World’s First Wi-Fi 7 Product
Qualcomm aims to provide the world’s fastest and most advanced connectivity system with the FastConnect 7800. This is a 14nm Wi-Fi + Bluetooth system that supports the latest Wi-Fi 7 specifications. Enables fast, ultra-low latency network connections With the next flagship smartphone.
Thanks to Wi-Fi 7 support, this system introduces High Band Simultaneous (HBS) Multilink Technology.According to the official press release, this technology “Leverage two Wi-Fi radios for four streams of high-bandwidth connections in the 5GHz and / or 6GHz band.” at the same time.
in short, Achieves ultra-high speed of up to 5.8 Gbps Use the 320MHz channel in the 6GHz spectrum or the 240MHz channel in the 5GHz spectrum. However, if a 6GHz connection is not available, the peak speed will drop to 4.3Gbps. Qualcomm said in a press release that it will open up the 2.4GHz spectrum of Bluetooth and low bandwidth Wi-Fi. The FastConnect 7800 also supports 4-stream DBS (Dual-Band Simultaneous), maintaining ultra-low latency of 2ms for a jitter and lag-free experience.
Apart from Wi-Fi 7, FastConnect 7800 is also available Supports Bluetooth 5.3 There are some audio-centric extensions. With Bluetooth LE audio and Snapdragon Sound support, the connectivity system is now Dual bluetooth feature.It’s using “Two radios with enhanced connectivity” As you can Stream premium 16-bit CD lossless quality audio Via wireless bluetooth headphones. In addition, Bluetooth accessories operate up to twice as much, pair in half the time, and reduce power consumption by up to 50%.
Qualcomm has also further optimized Snapdragon Sound technology to meet user needs and provide an industry-leading audio experience. “Combining up to 50% lower power consumption with intelligent dual Bluetooth with advanced Snapdragon sound capabilities, the FastConnect 7800 is the best client connection product in the industry.” In a press release, Dino Bekis, GM’s Vice President of Mobile Computing and Connectivity at Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., said.
