“5G will usher in a new era of mobile connectivity, allowing people to connect to data, experiences and other in ways never thought possible,” said Brian Higgins, Vice President, Wireless Device and Product Marketing at Verizon.

“Together, Samsung and Verizon have made huge gains in bringing 5G commercial services to consumers in several cities. Now, we are partnering to create a smartphone to put the power of  5G in the palm of your hand,” he added.

5G mobility service will provide massive bandwidth, greater opportunities for connectivity and improved network reliability. When fully implemented, it will offer capacity and download speed many times faster than today’s 4G LTE network. Along with network latency that is faster than the blink of an eye.

“We’re proud to work alongside innovative partners like Verizon and Qualcomm Technologies to deliver a smartphone that will fundamentally transform how people work and play,” said Justin Denison, Senior Vice President, Mobile Product Strategy and Marketing at Samsung Electronics America.

Samsung, which is set to launch world’s first foldable smartphone early 2019, has partnered with Verizon on its 5G Home offering since the beginning of 2018.
