Qualcomm today launched the Qulcomm FastConnect, a local connectivity system meant to improve the overall quality of such technologies across pretty much any and every segment of both consumer elecronics and enterprise-grade systems. The focal point of the solution is twofold, as Qualcomm FastConnect seeks to drive the adoption of both Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth audio connectivity.

In a way, it’s Qualcomm’s other bet on the future that runs alongside its 5G investments but isn’t directly related to it. More specifically, we are looking at the release of the FastConnect 6900 and FastConnect 6700 mobile platforms which are compatible with the latest internationally certified Wi-Fi specification, as well as the comparably latest Bluetooth standard – 5.2, to be exact.

The new tech should benefit everything from smartphones and wearables to Chromebooks and Arm-based Windows laptops, among other types of consumer electronics. Audiophiles will also want to make note of Qualcomm FastConnect due to its support for lossless, low-latency audio transmissions, immersive directional signal playback conducive to in-ear surround experiences, and improved range and consistency.

Both systems will be integral parts of most, if not all, future Snapdragon chips from Qualcomm. Those would be the thingies powering our smartphones, smartwatches, and even laptops, as of the last several years.
