AT&T launches mobile 5G in another seven cities ahead of first capable phone

AT&T on Tuesday announced it has launched mobile 5G service in another seven markets, bringing the total to 19 cities.

Although it was the first US carrier to introduce 5G wireless service in late 2018, AT&T has yet to carry a phone with support.

Samsung will make two 5G phones for AT&T in 2019

If you build it, they will come.

We know that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 will be the first commercial chip to support multi-gigabit 5G connectivity and that AT&T has big plans for a nationwide 5G network that uses both 5G mmWave and sub-6 GHz frequencies, so all that’s left are the phones. A 5G network will be useless without products to use it, and as expected Samsung is one of the first manufacturers AT&T has tapped to  [Read More…]

The handle was a large piece of angled plastic on the back which pivoted in the middle and added a lot of bulk. The tablet itself could never fully collapse, meaning it was only truly portable in  [Read More…]
