Qualcomm President and CEO Cristiano Amon took the stage and went right into the arms of 5G, starting off the opening keynote at the Snapdragon Summit that the company has seen a stellar year for 5G in 2019. Unlike some of the reception of 5G, the company is seeing 5G roll out at a much faster pace than 4G all those years ago.

5G saw "tremendous momentum across all regions" for Qualcomm, with over 40 operators turning on 5G hardware, over 40 OEMs were announced, and over 325 operators in 109 countries are investing into 5G technology.

But it is the future that Qualcomm is very excited for, with Qualcomm seeing in 2020 that commercialization will "rapidly" expand across the world, where in 2025 the company expects to see over 2.8 billion devices in the wild with 5G connectivity.
