Qualcomm’s modems are the preferred choice in all the top smartphones sold in the US, but other companies also make competitive modems. Samsung has just announced the new Exynos 5400 5G modem, its first modem with two-way satellite connectivity. This is also the same modem used on the Exynos Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24 Plus and the same that we expect on the Google Pixel 9 series.

The Exynos 5400 supports 3GPP Release 17, at par with the Qualcomm Snapdragon X80 modem. Samsung is promising maximum data throughput speeds of up to 14.79Gbps. Further, the Exynos 5400 can aggregate three carriers of 100MHz and two of 40MHz into a single complete frequency of 380MHz bandwidth within the FR1 frequency band, achieving speeds of 11.2Gbps with 1,024 QAM.
