Samsung and Verizon to launch 5G phone in 2019

Galaxy S10 just leaked a whole new design

The upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 mobile platform will be manufactured on a 7nm process, as previously disclosed.

T-Mobile is also developing its 5G network with an estimated roll-out of 2020.

Yesterday we heard that the 5G Samsung Galaxy S10 is coming to Verizon in the USA and now it looks like the handset is also headed to AT&T.

The Samsung Galaxy X foldable smartphone may have had its name leaked at last, and it's not the Galaxy F, but it's close: the Galaxy Fold. The only slightly behind South Korea in enabling 5G for consumers, as TechRadar reports that three South Korean operators launched their 5G networks for enterprise consumers in parts of major cities. Nicki Palmer, chief network engineering officer at Verizon, discussed Verizon's 5G strategy and the importance of collaboration in making 5G a reality; Kevin Petersen, senior vice president, wireless product marketing at AT&T, highlighted 5G commercialisation along with the industries and key consumer experiences that will drive demand for the next generation mobile network; Fotis Karonis, executive advisor for 5G at BT Group, discussed how 5G will roll out across the United Kingdom in 2019, address challenges that LTE now faces and introduce new customer experiences.

"Samsung offers end-to-end solutions that are accelerating the wide scale adoption of 5G and help us realize our vision of truly connected living", said Justin Denison, senior vice president, Mobile Product Strategy and Marketing at Samsung Electronics America.

Details on the Verizon/Samsung 5G Android-based smartphone launch are light for now.

Samsung, meanwhile, figures to play a critical role in 5G, both with smartphones and with networking equipment. 5G will, indeed, be the killer feature for smartphones of 2019, and it'll be a big differentiator. It's even been said that a tree's leaves could interfere with the strength of a 5G signal.

On top of that, Qualcomm also mentioned support for the new Qualcomm 3D Sonic Sensor.
