Samsung set to launch 5G phone with Verizon in early 2019

The First Real World 5G Test Was a Fail

Exactly what HTC is going to do in the world of smartphones right now is very unclear, but we expect the company to keep embracing the top-end processing tech for its next-gen phone. Although neither Samsung or Qualcomm announced the name of the first commercial 5G phone, but all of it all hints at the Galaxy S10. Enabling 5G connectivity in the Modo Mod is Qualcomm's X50 modem, the same modem reportedly used by the Snapdragon 855. The company's Senior VP and GM for Mobile, Alex Katouzian boldly claimed on stage that the 3D Sonic Sensor is the future of fingerprint technology which showed the level of confidence that the company has on its new product.

5G can offer data speeds up to 50 or 100 times faster than current 4G networks.

Qualcomm, the largest supplier of mobile phone chips, said Snapdragon 855 would power Samsung 5G smartphones that Verizon Communications Inc VZ.N and Samsung Electronics Co Ltd 005930.KS said on Monday would be released in the United States in the first half of 2019.

This is a big commitment as Samsung is doing its own version of 5G but it looks like Qualcomm is still faster than its competition.

The 39-year-old was arrested in Parramatta, west of Sydney , at 8.30am today, a New South Wales police spokesperson said. Australian police now say they "regret" arresting Nizamdeen.

Things are just getting started here at the Qualcomm Snapdragon Summit, so stay tuned this week for more information on topics such as 5G, Snapdragon 855, and Qualcomm-powered always on always connected PCs!

Instead, a more immediate impact from the Snapdragon 855 chipset will be the inclusion of the Qualcomm 3D Sonic Sensor, an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor that goes under a smartphone's display. AT&T announced today that it will also carry the new Samsung device in the spring of 2019. So, despite a fair amount of skepticism that 5G would ever arrive at all, it has, and it's all but certainly going to be part of most major smartphones launched in the U.S. within the next year or two.

What hasn't yet been revealed is how the overall CPU and GPU performance has increased, how much more efficient it is than the previous generation, and how all of these changes will manifest themselves in real-world use-cases. That will enable computational photography and video capture features, which we're hoping to hear more about when Qualcomm discusses its new mobile processor in greater depth this week.

Lastly, the "Snapdragon Elite Gaming" feature was teased, which should combine performance, audio and battery life for an improved gaming experience. Qualcomm says it's built computer vision hardware into the chip, enabling phones to better recognize people and objects they're looking at.
