OnePlus Will Have the First Snapdragon 855 Phone, Says CEO

OnePlus planning to release first 5G smartphone in first half of 2019

"Customers will eventually be able to connect in near real-time to unforeseen possibilities".

OnePlus chief executive Pete Lau said the company would release a 5G smartphone in the first half of next year, although the model would be "significantly more expensive" than its current £450 devices.

In conjunction with Inseego and Qualcomm, Verizon also has a 5G hotspot launching in 2019.

The Snapdragon 855 announced by Qualcomm and the existing Snapdragon X50 LTE modem are all that Android smartphones would need to crank out 5G-ready smartphones. But Qualcomm has developed beam forming antenna modules and other techniques to enable millimeter wave - which would add massive wireless capacity to cellular networks.

Sprint doesn't want to be left out of the game, and basically announced a partnership with a manufacturer.

The life of George Bush Senior
But no one ever questioned his patriotism, his human decency, his selfless service to his God, country, family, and friends. Finch says when the building was dedicated in 1997, many felt there wasn't enough information about the former president.

Apart from Apple and Huawei, most smartphone makers go for a Qualcomm-made silicon (Samsung too but just in the U.S.) for their premium offerings and it wouldn't be surprising to see most high-end 2019 smartphones get their firepower from the Snapdragon 855 chipset. Qualcomm claims the ultrasonic tech can accurately detect fingerprints despite the presence of various contaminants on fingers, because it isn't easily blocked in the way the light used for an optical sensor can be.

Qualcomm, of course, doesn't make smartphones - it can't set the timescales for when, exactly, the first Snapdragon 855 devices reach the market.

During an event in Hawaii this week, Qualcomm and Samsung showed prototype 5G devices running on "live" networks. It will work with 5G mmWave and sub-6 GHz standards, which is better on paper than the Verizon device. OnePlus will be the first to release a 5G phone on United Kingdom operator EE.

Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 is about to be everywhere in the Android smartphone space come 2019, but we can break down the five reasons why you should be excited about that. The company has said nothing about its product roadmap, but there has been some speculation that a 5G iPhone won't arrive till 2020, which looks highly likely. Qualcomm is believed to have a technology lead on Intel in 5G - though it's unclear how much. Today, they revealed the details of the 855, which we'll talk briefly about here, for those interested.
