The test was carried out in Providence, Rhode Island, with a moto z3 which was paired with a 5G moto modtm, the world's first 5G upgradeable smartphone, Verizon said in a statement.
The company said the same phone would be used on its mobile network when commercial 5G services began in 2019.
“In the past two years, we have consistently led the world in 5G, including launching the world’s first commercial 5G service last month," said Bill Stone, vice-president, Technology Development and Planning for Verizon.
Verizon said several tests were completed on the 5G connection, including browsing and placing a video call, with the transmissions being completed over Verizon's 28Ghz spectrum and Samsung's 5G New Radio.
The moto z3 was powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon X50 %G modem, along with the QTM052 mmWave antenna modules.
“This test is also one step closer to getting upgraded speed and connectivity that will affect all aspects of our daily lives. 5G will be a transformational leap in wireless, and we are excited to be a part of it,” said Shakil Barkat, vice-president, Global Product Development at Motorola.
“Samsung’s early and extensive innovation in 5G is helping to lay the foundation for the next-generation of wireless communications,” said Magnus Ojert, vice-president, Networks Division, Samsung Electronics America.
“Beginning with our contributions to Verizon’s 5G Home service, commercialised on 1 October, and now with 5G New Radio, we’re excited to continue our work with Verizon while advancing our lead in delivering 5G mobile technology that will benefit consumers, businesses and cities.”
