Snapdragon 855: specs leak within hours of launch

Snapdragon 855: specs leak within hours of launch

Near the end of the presentation, however, Alex Katouzian, SVP and General Manager of mobile at Qualcomm revealed the name and some of the features of their next flagship mobile platform.

For the first time ever in a Qualcomm chip, an NPU dedicated to machine learning tasks and related to AI will be present. First of all, the chip will officially be known as Snapdragon 855, despite everyone calling it Snapdragon 8150 up until now.

Qualcomm's Snapdragon Summit is taking place all this week and Express.co.uk is in Hawaii and will bring you all the news as it happens. As of now, there is no information regarding the Snapdragon X50 Modem (whether it will be integrated or not).

‘BIG leap forward,’ says Donald Trump on US-China relations

For example, Verizon announced yesterday that Samsung will release a 5G smartphone in the first half of 2019. According to a recent Yonhap News Agency article, Samsung reportedly plans to release its flagship Galaxy S10 smartphone in February, followed by the foldable Galaxy F and another edition of the Galaxy S10 that runs on the 5G network in March. Although Intel promised to ship its own 5G modem in 2019, Apple is expected to launch devices with 5G modems only in 2020. However, the company did give us a sneak peek at some of tomorrow's announcements.

The Snapdragon 855 chipset comes with the next generation GPU, the Adreno 640 with "Snapdragon Elite Gaming", which will enhance the overall GPU performance while gaming. There's a new concept video which imagines what the Galaxy S10 display hole would feel like during use. As it uses ultrasonic technology to unlock the devices, the 3D Sonic Sensor will work with wet fingers, which is not possible with existing fingerprint readers. Qualcomm states that them using ultrasound in the 3D Sonic Sensor is more secure and accurate than the alternative.

"5G will fuel collaboration, connectivity and productivity worldwide, and we're excited to be at the forefront working alongside partners like Qualcomm Technologies to make the transformation to 5G a reality". They include what is claimed to be a Galaxy S10 Plus, which has two cameras that live inside what appears to be an Infinity O hole in the front of the display.
