Qualcomm upgraded the Snapdragon 810 CPU with LTE Category 9 support, reaching up to 450Mbps downlink speeds21
Qualcomm explained that Category 9 capabilities have been validated with Snapdragon 810 processor-based device tests conducted with multiple commercial network and test equipment companies, along with an over-the-air demonstration in a commercial network environment. Each test successfully demonstrated the support of 3x Carrier Aggregation with three LTE component carriers, each with a bandwidth of up to 20 MHz, allowing for Category 9 peak data rates of up to 450 Mbps in the downlink.
The Snapdragon 810 will be available to Qualcomm customers in "early 2015", which probably means we can expect it in upcoming flagship smartphones from the first and second quarter of 2015.
