2019 is going to be the year of 5G, and Qualcomm wants to make sure it's at the forefront of it all. As CES 2019 rolls along at full steam, the chip-maker has announced that its Snapdragon X50 platform will be at the heart of more than 30 5G-capable devices this year alone.
Qualcomm notes that the majority of those 30 devices are smartphones from "global OEMs" that are using the Snapdragon 855. In other words, we can expect a lot of flagship phones this year to use the 855 and support 5G.
In other Qualcomm news, the company also announced that it'll be showcasing "artificial-intelligence intuitive in-vehicle experiences" at CES for "next generation vehicles."
It's unclear when any of that will actually make its way to a commercial car that you can purchase, but it'll still be exciting to see what Qualcomm envisions for the future of automobiles.
