It’s official: Samsung will reveal its first 5G Galaxy smartphone this week

Samsung Galaxy S10+ Leaks In Highest-Resolution Renders Yet

"5G is going to be about more than just a network".

When companies make a new phone they want accessory manufacturers to provide accessories for their devices and as such often give CAD measurements to them to allow for flawless fitting accessories. Verizon's current 5G deployments use their proprietary 5G TF technology.

While this should be exciting for a lot of people, industry experts have stated that while 5G connectivity is the way forward, smartphone owners upgrading their devices next year should not expect blazing-fast speeds immediately.

Impact: Following a largely underwhelming year in terms of annual upgrades to its mobile portfolio, Samsung appears to be positioning the Galaxy S10 line as a major step forward and one that will attempt to cater to everyone in the hopes of strengthening the company's leading position in the smartphone market.

Samsung Galaxy S10 with 5G variant could come in the first half of 2019 in partnership with Verizon. Weeks after it offered a fleeting glimpse at its next-generation Samsung Galaxy X with a folding 7.3-inch OLED screen, the company is now gearing up to unveil another early peek at a key piece of its 2019 product road map. AT&T also said it was still on track to begin shipping its first 5G device, Netgear's Nighthawk M5 Fusion hotspot, later this month.

The race to 5G is ramping up.

They have existed since 1956 but had not previously had a women's football category. "I didn't take it as that at all", she said.

We also saw a video call, most notable because it was between two live 5G cells (and showing that this was an actual network, and not just one cell beaming to one phone).

The news comes after Bloomberg reported, citing sources, that Apple Inc is planning to wait until at least 2020 to release its 5G iPhones.

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.

Samsung has partnered with Verizon on its 5G Home offering since the beginning of 2018. Together, Samsung and Verizon have made huge gains in bringing 5G commercial services to consumers in several cities.

Note: This article was updated to reflect AT&T's announcement on December 4, 2018.

The downside is, we know how Qualcomm rolls.
