A gaming-focused Huawei smartphone is apparently right around the corner, followed by a 5G-enabled handset and a foldable product of some sort.
That long overdue OPPO Find X is officially slated to include several groundbreaking technologies, most notably 5x dual camera zoom features.
In addition to vastly improved cellular download speeds, 5G technology could come with ultra-low network latency crucially contributing to monumental smartphone battery life.
Qualcomm's next-gen flagship smartphone SoC is apparently called Snapdragon 855 Fusion rather than just Snapdragon 855, integrating the Snapdragon X50 5G modem.
T-Mobile wants the world to know it's playing the "long game" in terms of 5G deployment, while Sprint is getting ready to bring "5G-like" capabilities to three cities.
Qualcomm will be at the forefront of 5G innovation, alongside smartphone manufacturers like HTC, LG and Xiaomi, as well as a long list of global mobile operators.
5G mobile networks are drawing near around the world, with Nokia able to secure a big equipment supply contract in Japan.
There will be no Huawei Mate 10 phone sold through AT&T, and the second largest US carrier may need to ditch the Chinese company's networking equipment and Cricket devices as well.
Enough preparing and testing the 5G waters, as the next-gen mobile connectivity standard is pretty much ready for primetime, at least as far as AT&T is concerned.
5G speeds are still a distant dream for regular mobile device users, but Qualcomm has crossed the barrier in its Snapdragon X50 modem tests.
The very first of its kind, the aptly named ZTE Gigabit Phone will debut at MWC 2017 later this month with 1 Gbps download speed support... on paper.
