5G has already started happening in many parts of the world. Early adopters have already started rolling out their 5G networks in 2019, while there will be a lot more traction in 2020. Years before 5G started to materialize, many companies had to come up with very smart ideas on how to make 5G possible. Some of the obvious elephants in the room a few years back were the ability to make things much faster, how to reduce latency and how to make mmWave work.
Just because Qualcomm insists does not mean we have to use it
Phones are starting to trickle onto the market with Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 865 SoC with 5G functionality, however manufacturers are reluctant to switch it on yet.
