Qualcomm Announces Snapdragon 855 With 3x AI Performance

OnePlus 7

One of the products Qualcomm is showing off is its 5G modem, promising to allow our future smartphones to make use of super-fast data speeds of the also future 5G networks. While each new generation of Snapdragon usually finds its way into flagship Android phones, it's unclear which models will run the Snapdragon 855 with 5G connectivity. "They weren't impacted in the past, but 5G is going to be much easier to market".

Samsung is looking to get a first-mover advantage in 5G smartphones, with rival Apple reportedly planning to sit out of the game until 2020.

USA telecom carrier Verizon and Samsung have announced to jointly launch one of the first commercial 5G smartphones in the U.S. in the first half of 2019.

Also interesting is the fact that OnePlus was given the responsibility for building Europe's first 5G device. Meet the Snapdragon 855, which is the latest mobile SoC to be built on 7nm process tech (following the Huawei Kirin 980 and the Apple A12/ A12X), and promises unmatched performance and efficiency for the scores of flagship Android phones and other devices that will launch in 2019. The Samsung phone will be AT&T's second 5G device, after the aforementioned Netgear Nighthawk mobile hotspot puck.

In Europe, EE intends to launch 5G networks in major United Kingdom cities including London, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Manchester, and Leeds through 2019.

And as you'd expect, this 64-bit Arm-compatible system-on-chip is heavy on the 5G and AI hype. 5G connectivity on mobile devices will be made possible with Qualcomm's Snapdragon X50 5G modem and QTM052 mmWave antenna modules. While this fingerprint sensor is technically separate from the chipset, Qualcomm does say that it is not dependent on the Snapdragon 855, but it won't be used with other chipsets, seeing as it is all part of one package from Qualcomm. Justin Denison, Samsung's SVP of product marketing and strategy, confirmed yesterday that the company's 5G phone will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855.

5G devices are expected to become commercially available roughly by the time next year's holiday season starts - and this is approximately the same time frame in which 5G deployments will be switched on in specific areas.

The Snapdragon Summit is a three-day event, and Qualcomm teased how more news is yet to come. Aside from Samsung getting into bed with two hardcore rivals, Motorola is working with Verizon for its own device, while LG has plans to launch its own 5G compatible device on Sprint's network, also for the first half of 2019.
