Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 officially announced

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. In addition, the Dallas-based carrier said it would work with Samsung to create a 5G "innovation zone" focused on manufacturing 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.

AT&T will sell a 5G Samsung smartphone. 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.

The first smartphone with the Snapdragon 855 and a 5G modem should be from Samsung and will be released in the first half of 2019. It is not yet known what model will implement next-generation 5G mobile communication services.

In October, Samsung Electronics built 5G home broadband systems with Verizon in Sacramento, California, and Houston, Texas.

With that said, Verizon and AT&T's 5G networks will only be available in a small number of markets when smartphones running Qualcomm's 5G-enabled chips roll out.

5G poses an exciting prospect, as it promises faster and more reliable connectivity to common data-intensive tasks, like streaming video, video calls, streaming music, and general smartphone use. 5G will, indeed, be the killer feature for smartphones of 2019, and it'll be a big differentiator. Lastly, the company announced the Qualcomm 3D Sonic Sensor-an under-display fingerprint sensor solution that uses ultrasonic waves, unlike optical under-display fingerprint sensors which use light. 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.
