Samsung has launched its latest 5G modem, the Exynos Modem 5300, which promises blazing fast download speeds of up to 10Gbps and upload speeds of up to 3.87Gbps. The modem is capable of supporting both SA and NSA 5G networks, and is built on Samsung Foundry’s 4nm EUV process. This means that the modem should be more power efficient than its predecessors, which in turn should result in longer battery life.
The Exynos 5300 modem is configurable to connect to a variety of chipsets, thanks to its built-in PCIe interface. It also supports the latest 3GPP 5G NR Release 16 standard, which is the most advanced standard for 5G connectivity available today.
While there has been no official confirmation on which chipset will incorporate the new Exynos 5300 modem, there are rumors suggesting that it may debut on Google’s Tensor 3 chipset with the Pixel 8 series. If this is true, it would mark a significant upgrade for the Pixel series, which has traditionally lagged behind other flagship smartphones when it comes to 5G connectivity.
With the Exynos Modem 5300, Samsung is hoping to stay ahead of the competition in the fast-paced world of 5G. The company is already a major player in the 5G market, with its Exynos 2100 chipset powering many of the latest flagship smartphones. With the new modem, Samsung is once again demonstrating its commitment to pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in the world of mobile connectivity.
