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

Alex Katouzian, senior vice president and general manager, mobile, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc unveiled at the event the Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform, the world's first commercial mobile platform supporting multi-gigabit 5G, industry-leading AI and immersive extended reality (XR) collectively, ushering in a new decade of revolutionary mobile devices. Therefore, 5G is evaluated as dream mobile communication technology.

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. As we have reported in the past, Samsung plans to launch multiple variants of Galaxy S10 so there's a chance that Samsung will tweak the overall design of the device as well. He described how 5G will be a commercial reality starting in early 2019 with mobile device launches and network rollouts across North America, Europe, Japan, South Korea, Australia and China. It is not yet known what model will implement next-generation 5G mobile communication services.

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

In October, Samsung Electronics built 5G home broadband systems with Verizon in Sacramento, California, and Houston, Texas.

Verizon Wireless isn't the only one jumping on the Samsung 5G bandwagon. To do this, the equipment manufacturer used a Samsung smartphone prototype. At first, 5G's rollout is likely to be slow and gradual, with only a few devices having 5G connectivity at first, and it'll only be available in a few markets initially. It's even been said that a tree's leaves could interfere with the strength of a 5G signal. And then, the Qualcomm ultrasonic sensor comes into the picture. 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.
