Over 30 Qualcomm-powered 5G devices are coming this year
Set to be released by “global OEMs,” it’s been confirmed that over 30 Qualcomm-powered mobile devices with 5G support will be released by the end of 2019. Some of these will be mobile hotspots like the one being developed by HTC for Sprint, but the company did state that the majority are indeed smartphones. In other words, consumers can expect a number of flagship smartphones powered by both the Snapdragon 855 and the Snapdragon X50 modem.
From this long list, some of the highlights are likely to be OnePlus’ 5G flagship, the LG G8 ThinQ, and even HTC’s 2019 flagship. At the moment, though, it is Samsung’s 5G Galaxy S10 which is capturing the most attention.
This device is expected to arrive on all major carriers in the second-half of 2019 and could make its debut with a humongous 6.7-inch display. In addition to this, a quadruple-camera setup on the rear is rumored alongside a dual-sensor layout up front.
