Qualcomm Shows First Smartphone Demo of LTE Advanced Category 6

—Download speeds of up to 300Mbps demonstrated on Samsung Galaxy Note 3 with Qualcomm Gobi 9x35 modem—

BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ: QCOM) today announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., in cooperation with Samsung, SK Telecom and KT, has conducted the world's first live demonstrations of LTE Advanced Category 6 connectivity with download speeds of up to 300Mbps on a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 smartphone at Mobile World Congress. The demo was conducted using a specially modified Samsung Galaxy Note 3 for demo purposes, with the latest industry-leading technology from Qualcomm Technologies, including the Qualcomm® Snapdragon 805 processor and Qualcomm® Gobi 9x35 modem.

"We're excited to be working with Samsung across products and technologies to break new ground in enabling customers with the fastest mobile broadband connections worldwide," said Alex Katouzian, senior vice president of product management, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. "From enabling the world's first LTE Advanced Category 6 demo in a leading commercial smartphone form factor, to driving LTE in high-volume smartphones, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. continues to lead the industry's transition to next-generation network mobile connectivity."

The LTE Advanced Category 6 connection demo is enabled by Qualcomm Technologies' highest performing processor to date, the Snapdragon 805 processor, as well as the Gobi 9x35, Qualcomm Technologies' fourth-generation 3G/LTE multimode solution, and the first commercially announced cellular modem based on 20 nm technology. Additionally, it supports global carrier aggregation deployments up to 40 MHz for both LTE TDD and FDD, and is backwards compatible to support all other major cellular technologies, including WCDMA /MC-HSPA, CDMA 1x/EVDO Rev. B, GSM/EDGE and TD-SCDMA. Through continued innovation in power efficiency the Gobi 9x35 enables manufacturers to design increasingly sleeker devices without compromising performance.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 was specially developed and modified for the LTE Cat 6 demonstrations. Upon the commercialization of Cat 6, it is anticipated that commercial products with Cat 6 will be introduced.

Attendees to Mobile World Congress can view the live demonstration of 300Mbps LTE Advanced Category 6 in the SK Telecom booth in Hall 3, stand#3J30 and in the KT booth in Hall 3, stand#3A11.
