Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Could Be Faster Than Apple's A12 CPU

He described how Qualcomm Technologies is uniquely positioned to make 5G a commercial reality starting in early 2019, helping phone manufacturers address the exponential increase in device complexity that comes with 5G.

AT&T also noted that it's working with Samsung to create a manufacturing-focused 5G Innovation Zone, the goal of which is to use 5G to enable new robotic manufacturing capabilities. 5G connectivity on mobile devices will be made possible with Qualcomm's Snapdragon X50 5G modem and QTM052 mmWave antenna modules. "This is the only mobile solution that can accurately detect fingerprints through numerous contaminants".

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.

The system-on-chip was teased during Qualcomm's Snapdragon Tech Summit in Hawaii today, and follows on from the 835 and 845 announced this time past year.

One of the biggest features for next year's phone is the ability to use 5G. Without 5G, the 855 is just another process shrink (rumors peg this as Qualcomm's first 7nm chipset), which is no small achievement (PUN!), but not much of a compelling marketing story.

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. So, despite a fair amount of skepticism that 5G would ever arrive at all, it has, and it's all but certainly going to be part of most major smartphones launched in the United States within the next year or two. The sensor will also be able to scan your finger if it is oily, greasy and wet, and unlock the device.

Another notable feature with the latest SD 855 chipset is the Qualcomm's new 3D Sonic Sensor fingerprint technology.

Because its sensor is ultrasonic, Qualcomm is promising accurate detection along with greater security compared to rival options like optical sensors. The chip maker will do so in day 2 of the Snapdragon summit. So far there are no details on the CPU and GPU specs including the type of cores used.

We'll be bringing you more from Maui as we get it, but don't expect this to be the only announcement - Qualcomm may have a trick or two up its sleeve yet.

Qualcomm stated that the phones with Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform would be released in H1 2019. Qualcomm says it's built computer vision hardware into the chip, enabling phones to better recognize people and objects they're looking at.
