Samsung has announced that it will produce a 5G phone next year and we've seen a prototype version of the device at Qualcomm's 2018 Tech Summit which we're attending. 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. Verizon's 5G service for smartphones will only begin rolling out in "early 2019".

5G represents a significant jump from 4G, offering higher mobile internet speeds and more bandwidth.

It's been clear for a while now that 2019 will be the year of 5G, and it's little surprise at this point that the Snapdragon 855 will support "multi-gigabit" data speeds on 5G networks as they light up around the country. Then join our Team!

The devices will run on a "Qualcomm Snapdragon X50 5G NR modem and antenna modules with integrated RF transceiver RF front-end and antenna elements", Verizon said. While each new generation of Snapdragon usually finds its way into flagship Android phones, it's unclear which models will run the Snapdragon 855 with 5G connectivity. Telstra is scheduled to share an exciting 5G update during the second day of the summit.
