Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Announced For Upcoming 5G Phones, Here’s Everything

All about the Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 chipset has been announced. Fortunately, next year’s high-end Android-powered phones will use the new flagship CPU with faster 5G enabled devices. Here are the details you need to know.

So, it’s clear that 5G is coming to the 2019 mobile phones, which is the next major milestone for the wireless networks in the United States. Also, they have all set their sights on the major upgrades that are going to launch at the end of this year and start its expansion from then onwards.

Snapdragon 855 processor has now been introduced, which is the upgraded version of SD845, at the same conference in Hawaii, almost exactly one year ago. But the new 855 isn’t just another spec bump, rather the chip that will almost certainly appear in the first wave of 5G phones. Qualcomm has said this new platform will support “multi-gigabit” download speeds on 5G networks.

Expect it (Snapdragon 855) will see the light on every major Android phone next year. That will probably end up being the Galaxy S10, Samsung’s upcoming and oft-rumored flagship smartphone. While Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint, all have already confirmed that it will be welcoming 5G on the back of an unannounced Samsung smartphone, and that device will be Qualcomm’s newest processor, what the company just unveiled as the Snapdragon 855.

Qualcomm officially announced the new processor at its conference on Tuesday. This new processor will support multi-gigabit 5G download speeds, whereas Qualcomm will tie its X50 5G NR modem with this latest 855 CPU, enabling 5G connections in many of next year’s devices.

In 2019, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 chipset will power your next flagship phoneAQnother point to be noted, the 855 was designed to trounce last-generation chipsets when it comes to AI performance, as we can also expect up to 3x performance gains when it comes to these complex computations. With these AI-focused updates, Qualcomm is clearly gearing up to compete with rivals like Apple as the fundamental nature of our software continues to change.

There will also be a new, dedicated computer vision processor that will apparently be able to not only recognize who you’re capturing with the capture, but what you’re taking a picture of. Honestly, those AI-fueled chargers are probably more integral to your life than you might know. Consider your phone’s camera, for instance; advances in computational photography mean your photos just look better without any extra work on your end.

That is what the company did, Qualcomm embedded a new computer vision ISP into the 855, so phones of the future will be better able to “recognize who and what are you’re capturing.”

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 is based on the 7nm manufacturing process. And Apple is taking its time with 5G adoption, which is expected that Apple is going to launch its first 5G phone in 2020, and Intel, on the other hand, will provide the 5G modem under the hood to facilitate those network connections.
