Samsung has yet to unveil its first 5G-ready mobile device, although according to Tech Advisor it is one of 19 smartphones manufacturers set to release a 5G handset in 2019.
It said that Samsung would be joined by firms including Sony, Google, OnePlus, HTC, Xiaomi, Motorola, and LG in using Qualcomm’s new 5G modem to enable 5G in their 2019 handsets.
5G networks are expected to enable download speeds that match those found with broadband, and naturally no major manufacturer wants to be left behind when the new networks become commercially widespread.
Youngky Kim, President and Head of Networks Business at Samsung Electronics, said:
“5G will unlock the potentials, create new values and push the limits of today’s technology.”
“We are excited to announce our joint efforts with NEC to boost 5G end-to-end solution portfolio for the best user experience.”
