Your next flagship will be based on Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 855 chipset

This is the second device which will be available through the AT&T portfolio, having announced a 5G Mobile Hotspot, in partnership with Netgear back in October.

On Monday, Verizon and Samsung said they plan to bring a 5G smartphone to the U.S. market in the first half of 2019.

It's a 5G smartphone prototype from Samsung with a huge screen cutout at the top-right corner.

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. Aside from Samsung getting into bed with two hardcore rivals, Motorola is working with Verizon for its own device, while LG has plans to launch its own 5G compatible device on Sprint's network, also for the first half of 2019. Intel will not have 5G-capable chips ready in time for the commercial production of smartphones in 2019, per the report. Verizon's 5G service for smartphones will only begin rolling out in "early 2019".

"5G will usher in a new era of mobile connectivity, allowing people to connect to data, experiences and other people in ways never thought possible", Brian Higgins, VP of wireless device and product marketing at Verizon, said in a statement.


As for Verizon, the company has only just begun rolling out its 5G home internet service this year to four cities, including Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, and Sacramento.

Samsung, meanwhile, figures to play a critical role in 5G, both with smartphones and with networking equipment.

Either way, early 2019 will give us a better idea of what to expect with 5G.

Complimenting the Snapdragon 855 will be the separate Qualcomm 3D Sonic Sensor. The 3D Sonic Sensor will use ultrasonic waves to register fingerprints, which is said to be more accurate and reliable than similar in-display fingerprint sensors you'd find on phones like the OnePlus 6T.
