Samsung, Verizon will release 5G smartphone in early 2019

Samsung Galaxy S10+ Leaks In Highest-Resolution Renders Yet

The three of them are conspiring to bring a 5G phone to market in the U.S. next year but the only date commitment they will make is the first half of the year.

The march to 5G has been on a major conversation point through 2018, 2017, and discussions about standards and ecosystem deployment even further back. 5G is also created to offer lower latency, lower power consumption, and more bandwidth/capacity. However, the hardware that Samsung is expected to use in its mobile phones will most likely be different compared to the models it sells globally.

"This is the future of fingerprint technology", Katouzian said.

"5G is going to be about more than just a network". These companies need to be the first at something / everything. Let us know what you think. After the presentation some of these demos will be available for the press to try afterwards. In fact, a lot of manufacturers embrace Qualcomm's processing tech.

Interestingly enough, some surprise announcements have already been made this week.

Consumer-ready 5G networks have yet to be deployed in earnest in the US, but Qualcomm is getting ahead of the curve by announcing its latest processor and modem so that it can be integrated into upcoming smartphones as the first networks go live.

The Galaxy S10 will not be the only 2019 phone to make use of the Snapdragon 855 chip. Still, Samsung says it will have a 5G ready phone in 2019.

Service providers are working on 5G rollouts across the US.

We now don't expect to hear about the Google Pixel 4 until late in 2019, but it's nearly certain to feature this top-end chipset from Qualcomm. That said, a number of reports have said the OnePlus 7 will include the latest Snapdragon chipset but it won't be capable of 5G. We will probably see it for the first time on the Galaxy S10.

When companies make a new phone they want accessory manufacturers to provide accessories for their devices and as such often give CAD measurements to them to allow for ideal fitting accessories.

Also on the subject of 5G is exactly how devices will be enabled with 5G modems and antennas. AT&T and Verizon both have 5G networks set up in the hotel where the Qualcomm event is taking place, and using a reference device shown off on stage during the keynote, those in attendance will get to experience a 5G connection on a reference smartphone powered by the Snapdragon 855 platform. Given which phones debuted with Qualcomm's top-of-the-line chipset in recent years, it's not a big leap of logic to assume 2019 flagship devices from Samsung, LG, HTC and Google would at least have the option of adopting that feature. Does that mean the next phone from Motorola will come with the Snapdragon 845 rather than the newly launched chipset? There's a computer vision ISP (image signal processor) for better photography in there, too, as well as a fourth generation AI engine. Qualcomm also mentioned gaming, promising next-level gaming experiences to the next generation of premium flagship devices. However, it seems like this modem may not be integrated into the Snapdragon 855 mobile platform.

This is Verizon's second mobile 5G device announcement.

Qualcomm's 3D Sonic Sensor will start showing up in phones, an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor that promises fast and accurate unlocking (superior to optical sensors). No details about the chip have yet been revealed (other than it's faster and better than the last chip, which duh), but we expect that will change tomorrow, given the day's keynote will have the 855 as its focus.

Qualcomm designs the mobile processors used in most high-end Android smartphones. On the table are all the 5G questions, as well as questions on Qualcomm's widespread portfolio related to everything mobile.
