Currently Verizon runs a "5G-to-Wifi" service, launched in October, although this isn't typical 5G: it doesn't use industry standards, and requires additional hardware to convert the signal from 5G to traditional Wi-Fi.

AT&T is also offering 5G service with a rollout in 12 United States cities this year, and plans to add service in seven other cities in early 2019, as reported by TechRepublic.

Earlier this week, the phone maker said it would release 5G phones with Verizon and AT&T, and during today's Snapdragon Tech Summit, Samsung senior vice president Justin Denison said a Snapdragon 855-powered Samsung phone would arrive in the first half of 2019. For starters, artificial intelligence (AI) will play a big role with the Snapdragon 855, with its fourth-generation multi-core AI providing a 3x uplift in performance compared to the Snapdragon 845. While cable modem alternatives using 5G in place of fixed-line broadband internet connections will reach the market first, all eyes are on mobile devices whether those be smartphones, tablets, laptops, VR and AR headsets, or something else.

Since MKBHD spotted the tweet, Samsung has not only deleted the tweet itself, but also the entire Samsung Nigeria account.

The processor will also feature a built-in Neural Processing Unit (NPU) which is something we expect to see on most flagship mobile processors these days.

5G mobility service will provide massive bandwidth, better connectivity, and improved network reliability.

Trumps Light National Christmas Tree South of White House
And what does the media - I'm telling you, I can't believe this - what are they hung up on with the first lady right now? Mrs. Trump was speaking at a Liberty University "town hall" about the opioid addiction epidemic.

The Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus are both rumored for a February 2019 release with MWC 2019 looking to be the time we'll probably see the phones unveiled.

A full list of Snapdragon 855 specs will be announced today at Qualcomm's reveal event.

It's official: the latest and greatest mobile platform from Qualcomm to lust after is the Snapdragon 855. (It's unclear if this pattern will continue with the S10.) Samsung is at the Qualcomm Snapdragon Tech Summit 2019 where the Snapdragon 855 has been unveiled, which we're taking that to mean the company is nearly certain to include the new Snapdragon on its next flagship. All Galaxy S10 models are said to feature the Infinity-O display.

We'll be bringing you more from Maui as we get it, but don't expect this to be the only announcement - Qualcomm may have a trick or two up its sleeve yet. The company didn't provide much more info other than to say it can work through screen protectors and is more secure than other systems.

Here are the complete details about the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC based on 7nm fabrication. As of now, there is no information regarding the Snapdragon X50 Modem (whether it will be integrated or not).

The Snapdragon 855 likely will launch next year in devices like Samsung's Galaxy S10 and will let all of us do more with our phones than ever before.
