The big question: where's Samsung? As for the 5G ecosystem on the telco side, Qualcomm is teaming with AT&T, China Mobile, T-Mobile, NTT DoCoMo, Orange, SK Telecom, Sprint, Telstra, Verizon, and many more.

In the United Kingdom, that's pretty much as to be expected, with EE (ultimately part of BT) and Vodafone once again lined up to do battle over early 5G bragging rights - just as they did with 4G many years ago. This week, we're hearing about this Snapdragon X50 5G NR Modem that promises to offer speedy mobile Internet in devices launching next year.

The announcement was made in San Diego, California, during the company's Snapdragon Lab Tours & Qualcomm 5G day in San Diego, California.

We'll be spending some time with Qualcomm at MWC later this month, hoping to gain some additional insights, so check Trusted Reviews regularly for all the latest 5G mobile news.
