Samsung’s 5G Prototype Has The Ugliest Notch On A Smartphone So Far

Helping the Snapdragon 855 SoC deliver on its performance will be the Qualcomm Snapdragon X50 5G modem. Recall, however, that the Snapdragon 855 used for the demonstration should equip the future Samsung Galaxy S10 in the United States during its expected release for Spring 2019. With the 5G-ready Snapdragon 855 mobile platform, your next flagship smartphone will be capable of utilizing the high-speed 5G networks once operators are ready.

Despite the inevitable short-comings when it comes to coverage, 5G is pretty close to becoming an actual thing in the hands of the consumer.

Qualcomm's Tech Summit is now ongoing, so we expect more details about the new Snapdragon 855 to pop up, including quite possibly some demos.

We think the new handset will be the USA version of the Galaxy S10 - Samsung usually releases two versions of its "S" series handsets; one based on its Exynos chip which comes to most territories including the United Kingdom and another based on Qualcomm's latest platform for the U.S. market. 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. However, the company did give us a sneak peek at some of tomorrow's announcements.

"5G will usher in a new era of mobile connectivity, allowing people to connect to data, experiences and other people in ways never thought possible", Brian Higgins, VP of wireless device and product marketing at Verizon, said in a statement. The phones, when launched with these processors, can identify faces and objects apart from video capturing functions as well. 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. Beyond that, there's not much else we can tell you today. For more information, stay tuned to XDA-Developers, as we'll have plenty of coverage and details to share throughout the week!
