5G may be in your phone sooner than you think.

Qualcomm on Monday unveiled the world's first 5G wireless chip, the Snapdragon X50 modem. It's initially aimed at both phones and gear like home wireless networks. And it should be in devices in the first half of 2018.

"5G is right around the corner," Sherif Hanna, Qualcomm staff manager of technical marketing, said in an interview.

The X50 represents the next baby step toward 5G, which is expected to be 100 times faster than our current wireless technology and 10 times speedier than what Google Fiber offers through a physical connection to the home. Typically, when a new wireless technology becomes available, it first shows up in standalone devices like wireless hotspots. But Qualcomm is already working on getting it into phones.
