Samsung and Verizon to launch 5G phone in 2019

Samsung and Verizon to launch 5G phone in 2019

Verizon's 5G service for smartphones will only begin rolling out in "early 2019".

During a keynote address, Cristiano Amon, president, Qualcomm Incorporated, discussed the progress and leadership Qualcomm Technologies has shown on the path to commercialisation of 5G. He described how 5G will be a commercial reality starting in early 2019 with mobile device launches and network rollouts across North America, Europe, Japan, South Korea, Australia and China. Therefore, 5G is evaluated as dream mobile communication technology. If you have any issues streaming a video over the current 4G LTE network, for example, 5G should supposedly fix that.

Amon was then joined on stage by senior executives from global mobile operators AT&T, EE and Verizon, who discussed in more detail their 5G deployment plans. The device will use the chipmaker's Snapdragon X50 5G NR modem and antenna modules with integrated RF transceiver, RF front-end and antenna elements.




There will be four versions of the Galaxy S10, one will be the 5G Samsung Galaxy S10, this handset is expected to be powered by the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor which supports 5G. The company is hosting events with more information about the Snapdragon 855 throughout the Summit, and most of the mobile platform's specifications and features will be made public during Day 2.

Apart from 5G connectivity, Qualcomm also announced its "3D Sonic Sensor", a fingerprint scanner for smartphones that will lay underneath the screen completely hidden from sight. Next, the company unveiled Snapdragon Elite Gaming, a set of features in the mobile platform to enhance mobile gaming experiences. This is the only mobile solution that can accurately detect fingerprints through numerous contaminants.

We think the new handset will be the USA version of the Galaxy S10 - Samsung usually releases two versions of its "S" series handsets; one based on its Exynos chip which comes to most territories including the United Kingdom and another based on Qualcomm's latest platform for the U.S. market.
