Qualcomm Announces Snapdragon 855

Qualcomm is playing most of the Snapdragon 855 details relatively close to its chest, at least for today.

AI Performance Boost: The Snapdragon 855 includes Qualcomm's 4th-gen multi-core AI engine, which should deliver a 3x performance boost in artificial intelligence features over the Snapdragon 845.

Samsung's upcoming phone, in partnership with Verizon, is particularly interesting because that means it will beat Apple to the finish line.

The US already has commercial 5G services, with Verizon launching 5G Home in October in select cities - Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, and Sacramento - which the company claims to be the world's first commercial 5G service. Verizon also has plans with Samsung to carry the same phone.

Complimenting the Snapdragon 855 will be the separate Qualcomm 3D Sonic Sensor. As a result we had live demos from both AT&T and Verizon showing 5G enabled hardware, using the upcoming Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform in various device form factors, connecting to a locally established 5G network from each company.

The chipset will be available for OEMs from the next few weeks, and Qualcomm has confirmed that companies like Samsung, LG, Sony, Xiaomi, Google, Sony, and OnePlus will launch smartphones based on Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 in the Q1 or Q2 of 2019.


"Samsung offers end-to-end solutions that are accelerating the wide scale adoption of 5G and help us realize our vision of truly connected living", said Justin Denison, SVP of Mobile Product Strategy and Marketing at Samsung Electronics America. They'll not only be smarter and more responsive but will tap into the super-fast 5G network, shoot better photos and recognize images, and let us securely unlock our phones using in-screen fingerprint readers.

Just like the "GPU Turbo" mode on Huawei and Honor smartphones powered Kirin chipsets, Qualcomm also introduced the new "Snapdragon Elite Gaming" for an enhanced gaming experience.

The biggest downside to all of these 5G announcements, be it from Qualcomm or Samsung or a wireless carrier, is the limited availability of 5G networks in the foreseeable future. We should be getting more information about these features from the official launch event. Qualcomm also announced support for 5G in multiple countries coming next year.

Up front, the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus is said to feature a 6.4-inch dual-curved edge AMOLED display with a quad HD screen resolution. This will add PCB space in mobile devices that previously only used internal modems, reducing volume for other components (such as battery). We don't think so.

Later today, after lunch in fact, I have some time scheduled with Qualcomm's President, Cristano Amon.
