After Qualcomm made it clear that 5G is going to hit the consumers in 2019 with the Qualcomm X50 modem, many OEMs have already partnered with Qualcomm to use the X50 in their devices. This also means that all these OEMs will use the successor of the Snapdragon 845 in their Flagships of 2019. But if you have noticed, the name of Samsung wasn’t included in the list of Partner OEMs.
Now, Samsung has always been the biggest partner of Qualcomm when it comes to their SOC development so, why Samsung hasn’t partnered with Qualcomm for 5G implementations ? Well, according to our Internal Reports, this is probably because Samsung will make a 5G Modem of their own which will come out alongside the successor of the Exynos 9810.
So, this means Samsung will definitely not be using the upcoming Snapdragon SOC in their 2019 flagship & even in the US, Samsung will be using the successor of the Exynos 9810 in the Galaxy S10 or whatever they want to call it.
However, Samsung’s 5G Modem is expected to be just as good if not better than the Qualcomm X50 and our Internal Reports also indicate that, Samsung might already be working on their own 5G modem for 2019.
