Verizon discloses completion of its first 5G data transmission on a smartphone.
Verizon (VZ) - in partnership with Motorola (MSI), Samsung Electronics (SSNLF) and Qualcomm Technologies, a subsidiary of Qualcomm (QCOM) - completed the world's first 5G data transmission on a smartphone on a commercial 3GPP 5G New Radio network. This successful test was completed with a moto z3 paired with a 5G moto mod, the world's first 5G-upgradeable smartphone, in Providence, RI. This is the same 5G-upgradeable smartphone device consumers will use on Verizon's 5G mobile network when commercial service begins in 2019. This is the latest in a series of 5G milestones Verizon and its technology partners have achieved in recent months. The companies performed several tests over the 5G connection, including browsing the internet and placing a video call. The transmissions were completed over Verizon's 28 GHz spectrum and Samsung 5G New Radio solutions. The moto z3 with 5G moto mod is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon X50 5G modem, along with the groundbreaking QTM052 mmWave antenna modules.
