Is this the Next Samsung S10?

11 February 2019

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. This is the second device which will be available through the AT&T portfolio, having announced a 5G Mobile Hotspot, in partnership with Netgear back in October.

It must sound like a bit of an echo, but during the first six months of 2019, AT&T will bolster its 5G devices line-up with a Samsung smartphone.

"Today marks a massive and exciting step forward underscoring how Qualcomm Technologies and ecosystem leaders are driving 5G commercialisation, a journey that went from R&D, accelerated standardization and trials, the launch of innovative products and technologies, to the imminent launch of 5G networks and smartphones across the globe starting in early 2019", said Amon.

AT&T has now confirmed that it will launch a 5G Samsung smartphone on its network in the first half of 2019, the company did not name the device, although there is a very good chance that it is a 5G version of the Samsung Galaxy S10. While each new generation of Snapdragon usually finds its way into flagship Android phones, it's unclear which models will run the Snapdragon 855 with 5G connectivity.

Verizon Wireless isn't the only one jumping on the Samsung 5G bandwagon.

As for Verizon, the company has only just begun rolling out its 5G home internet service this year to four cities, including Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, and Sacramento. To do this, the equipment manufacturer used a Samsung smartphone prototype. 5G will, indeed, be the killer feature for smartphones of 2019, and it'll be a big differentiator.

However, 5G won't burst onto the smartphone scene. That said, it's certainly interesting that Samsung has been thinking about adding this feature not only to smartphones, but also other devices. The potential limitation of 5G could be a reason why it's unlikely we'll see 5G-capable iPhones next year. And then, the Qualcomm ultrasonic sensor comes into the picture. 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.
