5G's coming -- and it will be here faster than predicted. 5G New Radio (5G NR), a flavor of the next-generation wireless network that's expected to be the global standard, should be available for large-scale deployments in 2019, a year earlier than anticipated, nearly two dozen companies said Sunday. The companies who've vowed to reach a standard for 5G for that timeframe included a mix of wireless carriers, chip providers and device makers -- such as Qualcomm, Intel, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile parent company Deutsche Telekom -- that are part of the 3GPP standards group. "For consumers, this means they're going to get an elevated broadband experience in 2019," Rasmus Hellberg, senior director of technical marketing at Qualcomm, told CNET in an interview ahead of the news, which was announced at the Mobile World Congress tradeshow in Barcelona, Spain. Notably missing from the list was Verizon Wireless, which is pursuing its own flavor of 5G. Verizon has said it will offer 5G to some customers in 11 cities by midyear. It's not full mobile wireless. Instead it's a replacement for fixed broadband. Many carriers, like AT&T, had pushed for 5G technology to arrive sooner rather than later. The technology is expected to be 100 times faster than our current 4G LTE wireless technology and 10 times speedier than what Google Fiber offers through a physical connection to the home. Experts say it should enable uses like virtual reality and augmented reality, as well as things we can't even think of today. And our phones should get a lot faster. To that end, Qualcomm on Sunday separately unveiled its first modems that embed technology for 5G, 4G, 3G and 2G connections onto one chip. The processors, part of the X50 5G modem family, will be available in time for 5G NR device deployments in 2019. Qualcomm in October unveiled its first Snapdragon X50 chip, but that processor only connects to 5G networks based on early standards of carriers like Verizon and Korea Telecom. Phones typically have chips that support older wireless technologies so users don't drop calls or lose data connections when the newer technology's signal is weak. To hook up to an older 4G or 3G network, devices will need a second wireless chip. The initial X50 processor is aimed to appear first in phones in time for the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea. The new family of X50 chips, whose exact names Qualcomm hasn't yet detailed, won't require a second modem. They also can connect to 5G and 4G networks at the same time, which helps users maintain a strong wireless connection. Qualcomm says the chips will first appear in mobile devices. Typically, new wireless technology first shows up in standalone devices such as wireless hotspots. "We're squarely targeting new family of modems at premium tier mobile devices first," Sherif Hanna, Qualcomm staff manager of technical marketing, said in an interview. "Thereafter, everything we've learned from mobile can extend to non-mobile applications ... [such as] fixed wireless broadband." Qualcomm declined to say when it will give test samples of the chips to customers but said they'll be in devices in 2019. Here's the full list of companies supporting 5G NR for 2019:

Several phonemakers unveiled new smartphones with batteries that can last longer and be charger faster. Huawei, the world's third-largest phone maker after Apple and Samsung, said its new flagship device, the P10, features a 40 percent boost in battery life. The battery also features "super charge" technology that promises a full day charge in just 20 minutes. Blackberry's new devices, which bring back the brand's iconic physical keyboard, have the brand's biggest-ever batteries. They also feature a "boost mode" that allow you to get a a 50 percent charge in roughly 36 minutes. Drones and robots were everywhere at this year's trade show. At Korea Telecom's stand, two robotic arms played the drums, varying the songs throughout the day. Japanese firm Softbank drew crowds with its human-like robot Pepper which can be employed in shops to greet customers and demonstrate products, while Barcelona-based Pal Robotics displayed two humanoid robot models. The fair set up a special "drone zone" for the first time to demonstrate their use in the delivery of goods to remote areas or aid to farmers by surveying crop growth. Virtual reality (VR) headsets were front and centre, in a sign of the importance placed on the technology by the sector. Samsung unveiled several new innovations including a 360-degree virtual travel app designed to allow people to reminisce about past experiences. Lithuanian mobile app developers TeleSoftas showcased an app which allows business meetings to be held in virtual reality with avatars representing people in different parts of the globe. Following on the heels of the success of Amazon.com's Echo, a hands-free speaker with AI-powered virtual assistant Alexa, several firms showcased their own version of the technology. Sony unveiled a new version of its Xperia Ear earphones which includes a virtual assistant called the Sony Agent. Both LG and Motorola presented new flagship smartphones that integrated a virtual assistant while Samsung announced that its new high-end phone which will be presented in New York at the end of the month will also have one. Research firm Garner predicts that by 2019, 20 percent of all our interactions with a smartphone will be carried out via such assistants. Companies rolled out products based on a future centred on the "internet of things", a network of devices, vehicles and building sensors that collect and exchange data. Several driverless cars were on display while a small French firm called Kolibree showcased a smart toothbrush that measures how well you brush your teeth and sends the statistics to your smartphone. An Indian start-up, Lechal, displayed shoes with smart soles which vibrate to guide users to their destination. They work by connecting to the GPS tracker of a user's smartphone.
