Samsung caught once again using DSLR photo in smartphone ad

Qualcomm

During his keynote, Qualcomm President Cristiano Amon discussed the progress Qualcomm Technologies has shown on the path to commercialization of 5G, describing 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.

Qualcomm has announced Snapdragon 855, the upcoming flagship SoC that will be found in most of the flagship devices in 2019.

Samsung and Verizon jointly announced Monday the companies would sell a 5G Smartphones in the first half of 2019.

In addition to the hardware support in Snapdragon 855, Qualcomm also discussed today worldwide carrier rollout plans for 5G technology in 2019, including commitments from all four major USA carriers for both Sub-6 and mmWave networks.

Samsung, which is set to launch world's first foldable smartphone early 2019, has partnered with Verizon on its 5G Home offering since the beginning of 2018.

With that said, Verizon and AT&T's 5G networks will only be available in a small number of markets when smartphones running Qualcomm's 5G-enabled chips roll out.

A Super Snapdragon? That's what Qualcomm unveiled with the Snapdragon 855 mobile platform during Day 1 of its Snapdragon Summit being held in Maui this week. This might seem like a pretty insane story just with that bit of information, but things get even better when you learn how Samsung was caught.

The Cupertino giant is delaying its adoption of the next-generation network technology to avoid problems, like spotty coverage, that could arise during the initial phase of deployment of 5G networks.

5G is the evolution of 4G LTE, and promises faster and more reliable speeds.

If 5G quickly gains traction with consumers next year, it also could help push forward a resolution in Qualcomm's wide-ranging legal war with Apple. Qualcomm is yet to provide a detailed information about the key highlights of the new Snapdragon 855. Apple plans to wait until at least 2020 before releasing an iPhone capable of 5G connectivity, Bloomberg reported Monday.

We think the new handset will be the United States 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 UK and another based on Qualcomm's latest platform for the U.S. market. Justin Denison, Samsung's SVP of product marketing and strategy, confirmed yesterday that the company's 5G phone will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855.
