Qualcomm launched it’s flagship SoC Snapdragon 865 5G mobile platform, but without an integrated modem. The reason why Qualcomm is not selling the 865 with an integrated LTE modem, might be because OEMs are not interested in splitting their high-end products into LTE and 5G segments. With this new launch, it looks like Qualcomm is really pushing OEMs to launch 5G equipped high-end device in 2020. On the other hand, AT&T, Verizon and other carriers around the world have been spending a great deal of money on 5G deployments.

Snapdragon 865 is a dual-chip system, but according to Qualcomm, it won’t impact power consumption. The 5G modem is not integrated into the chip due to the complexities of supporting different types of 5G networks.
