Your next smartphone will be plenty more faster in 2019 duet to the launch of the world’s first 5G mobile devices.
Quick, broadband-equivalent 5G download speeds are drawing closer to phones from over 18 businesses, like Sony, LG, HTC, ZTE.
Every one of these phone manufacturers have agreed to use the Qualcomm Snapdragon X50 5G, laying ground for lower latency and multi-gigabit per second downloads.
This means the forthcoming LG G7, Note 9, or Samsung Galaxy S9 may be the last one you upgrade before the 5G phones launch.
Qualcomm is supporting 5G not just for its quick speeds, but for connectivity. It would like to do away with you having to connect to public Wi-Fi.
Besides faster browsing, you also should receive better video call quality, 360-degree video streaming, instant connectivity, and UHD to the cloud.
Besides mobile devices, the 5G Snapdragon is supposed to advance the idea of always-on PCs. Which phones will get it?
Seeing that many flagship smartphones use Qualcomm modems, particularly in the US, we could see 5G speeds with all of next year’s top phones.
This means it’ll likely be in device that only exist in theory: the HTC U13 and LG G8 are good guesses. And while Google and Samsung aren’t part of today’s announcement, we are digging the Samsung Galaxy S10 and Google Pixel 4 launch.
Of course, just because the first 5G-ready devices are said to be available in 2019, it doesn’t mean you’ll promptly get multi-gigabit speeds.
Qualcomm also stated that it’s presently working with key carriers ( AT&T, Vodafone, Verizon, and T-Mobile) on 5G speed tests. But some carriers won’t be able to launch their 5G operations until around sometime in 2020. To put it another way, we’ll all get fast speeds at some point and time.
