Qualcomm Inc will showcase the latest 5G technologies and applications at the China International Import Expo in cooperation with mobile carriers and smartphone vendors. 

By next year, China will have 130,000 5G base stations, compared with 80,000 at present, the company said. More than 10 million people have made 5G service reservations, showing the great potential of the China market, it added.

Qualcomm will have several 5G demonstrations with its Chinese ecosystem partners at its booth, representing commercialization and future development trends. 

The handsets on display will be from Nubia, OnePlus, OPPO, Samsung, Vivo, Xiaomi, ZTE  and China Mobile.

Frank Meng, chairman of Qualcomm China, said the company was sticking to the concept of win-win cooperation with Chinese partners in 5G. 

In June, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology granted commercial 5G licences to China Telecom, China Mobile, China Unicom and the China Broadcasting Network, making China one of the first countries in the world to grant commercial 5G licenses.

To date, more than 50 percent of 5G devices and handset makers are from China.
