A Qualcomm spokesperson stated that Qualcomm has won most of the contracts with OEMs looking for 5G deployments in 2019, that includes both smartphones and other smart devices.

Both Samsung and OnePlus are expected to launch 5G phones using Qualcomm’s X50 chipset, with Samsung launching as soon as a few months.
