But Qualcomm won't be embedding a 5G-capable X50 modem in every single Snapdragon 855 unit. The company states that the new mobile platform features their fourth-generation, multi-core AI Engine with up to 3 times the AI performance compared to the Snapdragon 845. Telstra is scheduled to share an exciting 5G update during the second day of the summit.
Qualcomm this week unveiled its next-gen premium mobile processor, the Snapdragon 855, which will power next year's flagship. 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 Snapdragon 855 will debut with the world's first Computer Vision (CV) ISP to not only bolster computational photography, but also to enhance video capture. The platform also delivers the Snapdragon Elite Gaming, bringing next level gaming experiences to premium mobile devices.
Apart from 5G connectivity, Qualcomm also announced its "3D Sonic Sensor", a fingerprint scanner for smartphones that will lay underneath the screen completely hidden from sight. This is the only mobile solution that can accurately detect fingerprints through numerous contaminants.
On Monday, Verizon and Samsung announced plans to launch one of the first commercial 5G smartphones in the first half of 2019, which will use chips from Qualcomm.
