Samsung will make a 5G smartphone for AT&T too

There is no longer any doubt on what processor will be fitted on the 10th-anniversary special edition Samsung Galaxy S10 5G phone; it will be the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC. Therefore, 5G is evaluated as dream mobile communication technology.

Just a day after Verizon announced plans with Samsung to launch a 5G-compatible device in the H1 2019, AT&T has romped in to steal attention with its own, pretty similar announcement.

Qualcomm's announcement means that some Android smartphones in 2019 are likely to have 5G connectivity, provided manufacturers take advantage of the chip.

The handset was running on Verizon's 5G network (they set up the 28Ghz network especially using a mobile base station) while another device was streaming 4K video over 5G to a screen which it was connected to via the DeX dock and HDMI.

"Samsung offers end-to-end solutions that are accelerating the wide scale adoption of 5G and help us realize our vision of truly connected living", said Justin Denison, senior vice president, Mobile Product Strategy and Marketing at Samsung Electronics America.

Verizon already has a working 5G commercial service, 5G home, which was launched in October in Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles and Sacramento, with a "rapid expansion" on the cards. Verizon's 5G service for smartphones will only begin rolling out in "early 2019". The technology will be more broadly available as the carriers roll out their upgraded networks over the next few years.

Samsung, meanwhile, figures to play a critical role in 5G, both with smartphones and with networking equipment. The potential limitation of 5G could be a reason why it's unlikely we'll see 5G-capable iPhones next year.

Complimenting the Snapdragon 855 will be the separate Qualcomm 3D Sonic Sensor. In addition, the company says that its 3D Sonic Sensor will be able to detect fingerprints, even if there are "numerous contaminants" on the display, while providing high levels of accuracy and security.
