Samsung's 5G Phone Will Launch This Spring on AT&T

On Monday, Verizon and Samsung announced plans to launch one of the first commercial 5G smartphones in the first half of 2019, which will use chips from Qualcomm.

The new and fast Adreno 640 graphics will be optimized with a feature called "Snapdragon Elite Gaming", and fresh computational photography algorithms are added for system-level processing of the hottest trend in mobile picture-taking. The Snapdragon 855 also features the world's first Computer Vision Image Signal Processor (CV-ISP) to deliver new photo and video capture features. The US teleco has issued a press statement on the partnership with Samsung, confirming the arrival of this 5G phone. Galaxy S10 in the USA will launch with the Qualcomm processor, which will allow support for 5G connectivity. Although Intel promised to ship its own 5G modem in 2019, Apple is expected to launch devices with 5G modems only in 2020. For more information, stay tuned to XDA-Developers, as we'll have plenty of coverage and details to share throughout the week! And really, the only other thing I've been able to discern about it is that it seems pretty good at content streaming over 5G - I could live with a corner notch for the right data speeds.

Speaking at Qualcomm's Summit in Hawaii, Samsung's Justin Denison has confirmed that this latest phone will be powered by the new Snapdragon 855 processor and will include superfast 5G technology. 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 USA within the next year or two. And they haven't had a chance since 4G, so get ready for your next phone to have a big 5G logo slapped on it, because MORE GEES. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 is official, and it's coming to mobile devices soon. Beyond that, there's not much else we can tell you today. All in the name of progress, of course. Both the companies will be battling it out to introduce their first smartphone with a unique design.
