Snapdragon 855 is Qualcomm's next flagship mobile platform built for 5G

At this point, Qualcomm has only said this new chipset will offer "up to three times the AI performance compared to the previous generation mobile platform".

We'll have all of the finer details tomorrow following Day 2 of the Snapdragon Tech Summit.

Devices with Snapdragon 855 should also see a significant improvement in computational photography thanks to the new Spectra 380 image signal processor (ISP), which will include computer vision capabilities.

Verizon (and AT&T, and Sprint) has already confirmed that it will be welcoming 5G on the back of an unannounced Samsung smartphone. The 855 is the first commercially-available mobile processor that supports multi-gigabit 5G connectivity, hopefully easing our transition into 5G networks without the need for a complicated or inefficient secondary modem.

And in that device will be Qualcomm's newest processor, what the company just announced as the Snapdragon 855.

In contrast to now available optical in-display fingerprint sensors, such as the one that's available in the OnePlus 6T, the company's new 3D Sonic Sensor technology uses ultrasonic waves to capture and authenticate an individual's fingerprint instead of a 2D image.

Qualcomm's Snapdragon chips now power over a billion phones ranging from entry-level devices to flagship models, which is undoubtedly what the Snapdragon 855 is destined for in the first quarter of 2019. This under-display ultrasonic fingerprint sensor should be very secure as it takes a 3D image of the finger and won't be affected by oily or wet fingers. 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. The updated engine should deliver a 3x performance boost in artificial intelligence features over what we saw with the Snapdragon 845 now found in many Android flagship devices.

"This is the future of fingerprint technology", Katouzian said.

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. That will let the ISP adjust camera parameters to capture a better shot.

It's official: the latest and greatest mobile platform from Qualcomm to lust after is the Snapdragon 855. Mobile games are getting more demanding, so we'd expect this feature to help support the kind of graphically intense offerings that app makers are churning out with minimal lag.
