Samsung’s 5G Phone to be Named ‘Bolt’?

The 5G device that was officially announced recently by the South Korean giant Samsung at the Qualcomm event in Hawaii bears the codename ‘Bolt’ if you go by this tweet posted by XDA developers. Is this a confirmed development? It is difficult to say at this juncture since Samsung deliberately left out naming the device at the announcement on the phone to be released next year with the latest X50 Qualcomm Snapdragon processor.

Is Usain Bolt the Inspiration?

The codename ‘Bolt’ may be apt for the 5G phone if you consider the data speeds that the phone could be capable of achieving. It has already been reported that the 5G technology itself has been built on much higher speeds than what is currently experienced by users of the 4G devices. To place this in perspective, the speeds being indicated possible with a 5G smartphone is 10 Gbps. This is 1000 times the speed you can get on your 4G smartphones. This speed feature might have led Samsung to choose the name ‘Bolt’ after the all-time great sprinter from Jamaica, Usain Bolt. He has become a living legend with even a movie made on him in 2016. Though this tweet could just be a speculation, if indeed Samsung calls its first-ever 5G device ‘Bolt’ the customers may only welcome it.

What Else is Known About the 5G Phone from Samsung?

Much of the information relating to the 5G phone from Samsung is still in the realm of speculation. Some may be more reliable than the others. The phone might sport a display as big as 6.66 inches. The processor as confirmed officially is the Qualcomm Snapdragon X50 SoC. The RAM is likely to be 12 GB. This came from some of the certification sites some time back. And the storage onboard this device could be 512 GB or 1 TB. This may obviate the need for a micro-SD card. It will be interesting to know what size of battery will power this mammoth device. One may suspect that at least a 4000 to 5000 mAh battery will have to be accommodated to handle the otherwise top-end specifications. A fast, wireless charging feature can help the prospective buyers manage the device even if the battery were to drain out quickly. One must add here that the processors are now being designed to particularly save on the power usage and to extend battery life after a full charge.
