  This is the chip that might power some of the Galaxy S11 5G rivals next year We’ve had laptops with support for 4G LTE connectivity of a few years now, including several Windows-on-ARM devices. Now that carriers have been lighting up their 5G networks, it’s likely notebook vendors will come out with always-connected 5G models. And chipmaker MediaTek is making sure they’ll have the proper components to do it. The company early on Tuesday unveiled its next-gen solutions for 5G devices, including a modem that will deliver 5G connectivity to the future generation of connected laptops, as well as a high-end chip that will power some of next year’s flagship smartphones.

By 2022 , a 4 G connection will generate nearly twice as much traffic on average as a 3G Another significant trend is the growth of smartphones (including phablets) from 50 percent share of The explosion of mobile applications and the expanded reach of mobile connectivity to a growing number

The growth will be pushed by increased smartphone sales, especially those using 5 G , as consumers seek to use the new communications technology. Apple's "iPhone 12" lineup for 2020 is anticipated to be part of this push, with the models expected to have 5 G connectivity in a significant capacity.

While the first 5G mobile phones have only begun to hit the market and are still viewed as novelty devices rather than necessary ones, their market share is expected to grow by 43% in just two years according to Gartner.

Though in 2019, smartphones with 5G connectivity were newfangled inventions, their popularity is predicted by research firm Gartner to soar over the next few years. The company forecasts that in 2020, 5G devices will make up 12% of mobile phone shipments, which will rise to 43% by 2022.

Over the next few years, Gartner explains that the expansion of 5G service coverage and drop in 5G smartphone prices will lead to this change. Right now, mostly only spendy flagship devices support (or will support it when launched later this year) the new cellular network like Samsung's Galaxy 10 series, Huawei's Mate X and Mate 30 Pro, and OnePlus's 7 Pro, all of which have price tags upward of $800.

The launch of more affordable 5G options and better service will help push global smartphone sales from negative 2% in 2019 to a positive 1.7% in 2020.

By 2023, smartphones with 5G connectivity are expected to make up 50% of all mobile devices shipped.

This year’s new phones will have faster memory than your laptop .
Samsung’s Galaxy S20 might not have an exciting new design, but it makes up for its look with much better specs than 2019 flagships, including faster memory than before. In fact, the RAM used in the S20 will be faster than the memory in most laptops. The S20 will pack up to 16GB of RAM of LPDDR5 memory, which should deliver significant performance improvements over previous-generation flagships. But the S20 phones won’t be the only phones to rock LPDDR5 RAM this year. They also won’t be the first. That title will go to one of Samsung’s biggest rivals in China, Xiaomi, whose next flagship is about to drop.
