Snapdragon powers ASUS ZenFone 4 Pro with gigabit connectivity

Gigabit connectivity from QualcommQualcomm Technologies announced that its Qualcomm Snapdragon Mobile Platforms will power the ASUS ZenFone 4 Pro with gigabit connectivity.

ASUS ZenFone 4 Pro smartphone – featuring Snapdragon X16 Gigabit LTE modem — is the world’s first commercial smartphone to feature Gigabit LTE and 802.11ad multi-gigabit Wi-Fi technologies for gigabit connectivity indoors and outdoors.

Qualcomm TruSignal dual-antenna technology ensures better signal quality for extended coverage for the latest smartphone from ASUS.

Qualcomm Technologies’ 11ad Wi-Fi allows users to download and share 4k videos in seconds, sync their photos, videos and other files with better speed.

With the phone’s Wi-Fi hotspot feature the Snapdragon mobile platform is designed to provide end-to-end gigabit wireless connectivity with 802.11ad access and Gigabit LTE backhaul, on a compatible network.

Like the upcoming 5G NR standard, 11ad utilizes the mmWave spectrum – in this case, the 60 GHz band– tapping into a massive amount of data-carrying capacity that complements existing cellular and Wi-Fi networks.

ZenFone 4 Pro users will enjoy better Wi-Fi connectivity using Qualcomm Technologies’ 802.11ac 2×2 MU-MIMO technology, which offers twice as much throughput as 1×1 Wi-Fi and improved coverage, especially in buildings with brick or concrete walls.

“We are thrilled to bring lightning fast connectivity, and innovative new imaging technology to the ASUS ZenFone 4 family of smartphones in Europe with our Snapdragon Mobile Platforms,” said Cristiano Amon, executive vice president, Qualcomm Technologies.

Qualcomm Technologies’ Snapdragon Mobile Platforms will also support ZenFone 4 and ZenFone 4 Selfie series, including the ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro.

Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 430 Mobile Platform also powers ZenFone 4 Selfie, with a triple-slot tray for dual data connections with speeds up to 150Mbps.
