Though, Qualcomm calls it "extended reality" because the terms virtual reality and augmented reality are very 2017. Last night, Qualcomm released a new in-display fingerprint sensor to help popularize this technology.

The first phones will focus on a non-mmWave solution while mmWave-enabled phones are expected in the second half of 2019. It's also likely this chipset will be included in the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 later in the year too. The companies will show off a proof of concept device at Qualcomm's Snapdragon Technology Summit in Maui this week, featuring the Snapdragon X50 NR modem, antenna modules, integrated RF transceiver, RF front-end, and antenna elements, as well as Qualcomm's upcoming Snapdragon Mobile Platform flagship. To achieve that Qualcomm had introduced new Snapdragon Elite Gaming that brings a bunch of powerful features to enhance the gaming experience on most of the powerful flagship phones, which are slated to launch with the Snapdragon 855, next year. Intel supplies cellular modems to Apple iPhones, and is keen to keep Cupertino onside by producing components that match Qualcomm's offerings.

Qualcomm claims this can accurately detect fingerprints. When fully implemented, it will offer capacity and download speeds much faster than a 4G LTE network.

Qualcomm is making a big push with 5G devices.

Putin said on Wednesday that the USA decision to ditch the INF means Washington has decided the United States "has to have these weapons".

In other words, the digital assistant on your phone will be smarter and faster than before. The cost of a device together with a service plan can add up and become a high monthly expense, and despite smartphones becoming a daily necessity for many of us, 5G might appear as a luxury addition which is not required.

Service providers are working on 5G rollouts across the US. Though, it also goes without saying that this is going to be an expensive component and could force smartphone prices to rise even more than they already have. The U.S.is only slightly behind South Korea in enabling 5G for consumers, as TechRadar reports that three South Korean operators launched their 5G networks for enterprise consumers in parts of major cities. The governor spoke about 5G's importance to businesses as well as the millions of people who visit the Aloha State and use their smartphones to explore its picturesque islands.
