Qualcomm unveils its new 5G-focused Snapdragon 855 chip OnMSFT.com

For example, Verizon announced yesterday that Samsung will release a 5G smartphone in the first half of 2019.

Apart from ushering the era of 5G in, the new 7nm process should also offer big improvements when it comes to battery life and performance. We know from today's events that the handset is running the new Snapdragon 855 platform with X50 5G modem. In the race to 5G, AT&T is seen as the likely leader with the launch of a mobile 5G network in a dozen markets by the end of 2018. Apple, however, is choosing to sit out the H1 2019 race, suggesting its own 5G compatible device will not be ready until 2020. Galaxy S10 is supposed to come in three variants which will include Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10 Plus, and Galaxy S10 with 5G support. Which device, exactly, wasn't specified, but nearly every finger is pointing towards Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S10 smartphone.

So far, AT&T's 5G rollout will only include 12 cities in the United States of America by the end of 2018: Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Waco, Jacksonville, Louisville, New Orleans, Atlanta, Charlotte, Raleigh, Indianapolis, and Oklahoma City.

Verizon already has a working 5G commercial service, 5G home, which was launched in October in Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles and Sacramento, with a "rapid expansion" on the cards. These landmark achievements are the result of Qualcomm mobile leadership and breakthrough inventions over decades, leading the world to 3G, 4G and now 5G by driving an end-to-end system approach that spans from research and development to commercialisation through a series of essential inventions and industry-first prototypes, demos, trials, chipsets and mobile platforms. In addition, the Dallas-based carrier said it would work with Samsung to create a 5G "innovation zone" focused on manufacturing technology.

Computational photography is becoming even more important in flagship phones, and Google's Pixel 3 family of smartphones has arguably used it to the greatest effect. By mid-2019, AT&T plans to bring the 5G bonanza to a further seven cities across the U.S., though as with the original 12 take the 5G coverage claims with a pinch of salt.

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