Here are all the 5G devices coming in 2019... so far

Qualcomm has announced Snapdragon 855, the upcoming flagship SoC that will be found in most of the flagship devices in 2019.

The Cupertino behemoth was late to 4G LTE and it seems Apple will be late to 5G as well.

Verizon, AT&T, and Samsung also announced that a 5G-capable smartphone will be available in early 2019.

The Cupertino giant is delaying its adoption of the next-generation network technology to avoid problems, like spotty coverage, that could arise during the initial phase of deployment of 5G networks.

During a company event in Hawaii, Alex Katouzian, senior VP and GM of mobile for Qualcomm Technologies, claimed the new Snapdragon 855 chip delivers more performance than its existing counterparts.

Qualcomm is betting big that 5G will jump start the saturated smartphone market. The main benefits of 5G include significantly faster data speeds, as well as significantly less latency. This might seem like a pretty insane story just with that bit of information, but things get even better when you learn how Samsung was caught.

The Snapdragon 855 will also support a brand new in-screen fingerprint sensor called the 3D Sonic sensor. OnePlus, which specializes in affordably priced flagship phones, says it will have the first phone to be powered by the Snapdragon 855. Of course the idea that Samsung can't even get its social media team to use Galaxy phones instead of iPhones is just amusing and not really malicious in any way. This is fake marketing, and that's exactly what Samsung has done here. While the physical device was missing in action at the summit, Samsung did show off a prototype device with quite the notch.

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's 5G service for smartphones will only begin rolling out in "early 2019".

The 5G race in the U.S. is certainly heating up, and while some might complain the buzz has dimmed into more of a nauseating drone, at least there is something to actually shout about nowadays.

The X50 is fully 5G-capable with two different antenna configurations that support either mmWave or sub-6Ghz frequencies.
