Qualcomm CEO: 5G phones on shelves in 2019, not 2020 Featured


In an interview in Frankfurt, Qualcomm chief executive Steve Mollenkopf said real 5G devices could be expected on retail shelves in 2019, at least a year ahead of schedule.

Mollenkopf was quoted by Reuters as stating: “You will see it (5G) in real devices, on the shelf, in 2019. And if I were to answer that same question a year ago, I would have said 2020.”

He also explained that first mover countries such as the US, South Korea and Japan would be first to see 5G, and while he didn’t mention Australia, Telstra is already doing a lot of work with Ericsson, and presumably Qualcomm too, in getting 5G to us down under as quickly as possible.

Mollenkopf has plenty more to say in the article, which you can read here.

However, for more information direct from the source, you can read about the 5G keynote speech Mollenkopf gave at the International Motor Show in Frankfurt, Germany, late last week.
