Qualcomm announced that its super-fast Snapdragon X50 5G NR modem family has received support by a bunch of OEMs, with these companies launching 5G-based products next year, with trials beginning later this year. From the press release, it is clear that the OEMs are working with an intention to commercialize their 5G mobile devices by the next year. Qualcomm also claims that 5G-enabled smartphones will have unlimited internet data and will be able to connect to public WiFi networks without needing to log in.

You could read this between lines when Samsung announced the new alliance and the new cross-licensing deal with Qualcomm a week ago. The world's three biggest smartphone manufacturers Apple, Samsung, or Huawei are missing on this list.

For wireless carriers, the next big thing is 5G technology. These include AT&T, British Telecom, Sprint, China Telecom, China Mobile, China Unicom, NTT DOCOMO, Orange, Verizon, Telstra, Singtel among others.

"Qualcomm Technologies is deeply committed to helping our customers deliver next-generation 5G mobile experiences to consumers, which requires enhanced mobile broadband 5G NR connectivity enabled by 5G NR networks, mobile devices and the Snapdragon X50 5G modem", said Alex Katouzian, SVP and GM, mobile, Qualcomm. The major companies include Nokia / HMD, Xiaomi, Vivo, LG, Sony, Oppo, HTC, Asus, Sharp, ZTE, Netgear, Telit, WNC, inseego, NetComm, Sierra Wireless, Netgear, and Fujitsu. It is said that the 5G network will be based on the 3GPP standard-compliant 5G devices and infrastructure.

The Snapdragon X50 5G NR (New Radio) mobile modem chipset can attain download speeds of several gigabits. It may actually be ready sooner than expected as companies have started to work on 5G technology and standards. "These trials demonstrate how we are working with global operators to fuel growth and innovation in the mobile industry and make 5G a reality by supporting a large number of expected commercial launches in 2019".

In the United Kingdom, that's pretty much as to be expected, with EE (ultimately part of BT) and Vodafone once again lined up to do battle over early 5G bragging rights - just as they did with 4G many years ago.
