AT&T won't let Verizon have its moment in the 5G limelight

Previous rumors have suggested the chipset might end up being called the Snapdragon 8150, but alas, Qualcomm made a decision to go with the more logical naming scheme. Make no mistake, the internal platform name of "sm8150" had been accurate all along, but the company chose to continue their existing branding scheme for the next mobile platform's marketing name-not unlike older Qualcomm flagship mobile platforms like the msm8996 (Qualcomm Snapdragon 820) or msm8974 (Qualcomm Snapdragon 800). Recall, however, that the Snapdragon 855 used for the demonstration should equip the future Samsung Galaxy S10 in the United States during its expected release for Spring 2019. The device will use the chipmaker's Snapdragon X50 5G NR modem and antenna modules with integrated RF transceiver, RF front-end and antenna elements. Unlike the 5G talks during last year's Snapdragon 845 announcement, this year 5G is much closer to becoming a reality.

On Monday, Verizon and Samsung said they plan to bring a 5G smartphone to the U.S. market in the first half of 2019.

The handset was running on Verizon's 5G network (they set up the 28Ghz network especially using a mobile base station) while another device was streaming 4K video over 5G to a screen which it was connected to via the DeX dock and HDMI.

European Union cuts eurozone growth forecast, inflation to slow
On that front, Commission forecasters also warned that the domestic drivers of the expansion in the euro area have "softened". But the risks are clearly on the downside, explained the Commissioner for Economic Affairs, Pierre Moscovici .

It must sound like a bit of an echo, but during the first six months of 2019, AT&T will bolster its 5G devices line-up with a Samsung smartphone.

The rapid development and rigorous work that went into next year's round of 5G network deployments were a big theme here at Tech Summit day 1, and it's not hard to see how insanely fast data speeds stand to change what we expect from our smartphones. While each new generation of Snapdragon usually finds its way into flagship Android phones, it's unclear which models will run the Snapdragon 855 with 5G connectivity. Next, the company unveiled Snapdragon Elite Gaming, a set of features in the mobile platform to enhance mobile gaming experiences.
