The largest US carriers, AT&T Inc. and Verizon Communications Inc., appeared at Qualcomm's event in Hawaii on Tuesday, after touting plans to offer 5G services in the first-half of next year.

Murder charges against brother in mansion fire slayings
An investigation into those businesses - and the financial dealings of the Caneiros - has been launched, the prosecutor said. That same day, about seven hours later, his brother's mansion in nearby Colts Neck, New Jersey, also burst into flames.

Verizon, meanwhile, announced today (Dec. 4) that it's teaming up with Inseego on a 5G mobile hotspot that will be available in 2019. It will take this opportunity to once more labour the point about its 5G modem leadership and this time has recruited Verizon and Samsung for further emphasis. Notably, Apple and Samsung have been taking a jab at each other by releasing premium phones in the similar price segment, however, right now, Apple is engaged in a legal battle with Qualcomm. This not only made them less secure than conventional fingerprint readers but also not as fast or easy to use. So, despite a fair amount of skepticism that 5G would ever arrive at all, it has, and it's all but certainly going to be part of most major smartphones launched in the USA within the next year or two.

Few other technical details were revealed about Qualcomm's new chips with the focus instead being on promoting the benefits of 5G connectivity that they'll be able to provide such as improved AR experiences, better online gaming, and more seamless live translation services.

In addition to a new AI engine, Qualcomm has also announced a brand new ISP for the Snapdragon 855.

Additionally, Qualcomm also alluded that the Snapdragon 855 performs 2x faster than the Huawei Kirin 980, and "significantly faster" than the Apple A12. The Snapdragon 855 is the first chipset from Qualcomm with a dedicated Neural Processing Unit (NPU), which will help in AI computations.
