Qualcomm Announces Snapdragon 855

Qualcomm Announces Snapdragon 855

(It's unclear if this pattern will continue with the S10.) Samsung is at the Qualcomm Snapdragon Tech Summit 2019 where the Snapdragon 855 has been unveiled, which we're taking that to mean the company is nearly certain to include the new Snapdragon on its next flagship.

For the next three days Qualcomm is holding its annual Snapdragon Summit in Maui, where the company is expected to reveal new and improved Snapdragon mobile processors, and with the help of carriers across the globe, layout plans for 5G networks heading into 2019. That feature supports the expansive, edge-to-edge screens phone makers have favored the last couple of years: not having to leave space for a visible fingerprint sensor on the front of the phone frees up more space for the display.

Instead, a more immediate impact from the Snapdragon 855 chipset will be the inclusion of the Qualcomm 3D Sonic Sensor, an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor that goes under a smartphone's display. There will also be a new, dedicated computer vision processor which will apparently be able to not only recognize who you're capturing with the capture, but what you're taking a picture of.

Because its sensor is ultrasonic, Qualcomm is promising accurate detection along with greater security compared to rival options like optical sensors.

A 5G capable Samsung Galaxy S10 with a fingerprint sensor under the display doesn't sound all that far-fetched after Tuesday's announcement. Qualcomm states that them using ultrasound in the 3D Sonic Sensor is more secure and accurate than the alternative. The feature is also available in phones like Vivo's Nex S and Xiaomi Mi 8, but those phones aren't officially supported in the U.S.

The track, which immediately became a meme when it was released , mentions Grande's exes and focuses on self-empowerment. And it was... it was really big", perhaps in reference to a certain type of " big energy " that Davidson reportedly has.

The report claims the company will save 5G for an upcoming device set to be released later in 2019, so you may have to wait a while to get the biggest benefit from the Snapdragon 855. The Snapdragon 855 includes Qualcomm's 4th-generation multi-core AI engine. Many times we've written that its name is Snapdragon 855 and nothing else.

"This is the future of fingerprint technology", Katouzian said. Qualcomm released the world's first fully integrated 5G new air interface (5G NR) millimeter wave and 6GHz RF module for 5G smartphones and other mobile terminals.

Google aren't at the Snapdragon Summit specifically, but the company has embraced Qualcomm's processing tech for the entire Pixel series so far.

That's because every recent flagship phone from LG has featured the top-end Qualcomm chipset at the time, so we'd expect the same from the LG G8.
