  o5G WiFi delivers faster, more reliable wireless connectivity with
    significantly less battery drain

Broadcom Corporation (NASDAQ: BRCM), a global innovation leader in
semiconductor solutions for wired and wireless communications, today announced
HTC has chosen Broadcom® 5G WiFi technology in its new flagship HTC One
device. By adopting the BCM4335, HTC is delivering the speed, reliability and
power benefits of 5G WiFi in its newest smartphone. Visit Broadcom @ Mobile
World Congress for more news.

"With the launch of the HTC One, we're reinventing the mobile experience and
setting a new standard for smartphones," said Kouji Kodera, Chief Product
Officer, HTC. "Our customers today are consuming more and more video on their
mobile devices and expect a seamless streaming experience. Broadcom's 5G WiFi
delivers higher bandwidth and broader range so our customers experience the
fastest, most reliable wireless connectivity yet – while also preserving
battery power."

The explosion of video consumption and the growing number of wireless devices
being used are putting stress on legacy 802.11a/b/g/n networks. As a result,
consumers are prone to experience deteriorated performance such as choppy
videos and slower load times, especially when streaming content to a
smartphone. 5G WiFi, which is based on the IEEE 802.11ac standard, improves
the range of a wireless connection, providing higher-capacity video streaming,
the ability to connect multiple devices to the network at the same time and
broader coverage with fewer dead spots. Broadcom's 5G WiFi also reduces power
consumption by up to 83 percent[1] in mobile devices, so consumers can go
longer without having to plug in.

"Broadcom continues to lead the transition to the next generation of Wi-Fi
across all product segments," said Michael Hurlston, Senior Vice President and
General Manager, Wireless Connectivity Combos. "We've hit a major inflection
point with 5G WiFi in mobile phones. Now consumers will be able to unlock the
real benefits of the technology, especially when used with the many other
802.11ac products on the market today."

Availability
The new HTC One powered by Broadcom 5G WiFi will be available globally through
more than 185 mobile operators and major retailers in more than 80 regions and
countries beginning in March. For more information on the HTC One, please
