Qualcomm Releases 5G Enabled Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform

Qualcomm Releases 5G Enabled Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform

Qualcomm's newly-announced Snapdragon 855 chipset has just been unveiled at the company's own Snapdragon Summit.

Stay tuned for tomorrow when we will learn all about the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 855. It can go 10 to 100 times faster than your typical cellular connection today, and even quicker than anything you can get with a physical fiber-optic cable going into your house.

Full disclosure: Qualcomm flew me (and like, 300 other people) to Maui and gave me free food and booze and put me up in a fancy hotel with a private beach and like, twenty hot tubs.

The GPU promises a performance boost of 20% over Qualcomm's current offering, too, while also receiving new features such as support for Vulkan 1.1 support, HDR10+ (a first for mobile), and physically-based rendering, all of which should contribute to more realistic-looking games, according to Qualcomm.

Every OnePlus phone so far has featured a Qualcomm chipset, so there's no reason to believe the company won't follow suit in its next flagship device. Huawei and Intel may dispute this characterization, but no products on the market use their 5G tech. With that in mind, Qualcomm President Cristiano Amon said on Tuesday that all Android manufacturers will have at least one flagship phone that supports 5G by the end of 2019. And that's really the only 5G "first" that matters. The event is an opportunity for us to gather technology press and analysts from all over the world and showcase our breakthrough technologies and new premium-tier platform - inventions that will empower the mobile ecosystem for years to come.

Paul was not allowed in the Tuesday briefing, which was limited to relevant committee chairmen and select other participants. Senators have moved to punish Saudi Arabia by advancing legislation to curtail USA backing for the Saudi-led war in Yemen.

In September, AT&T named Samsung as one of its technology suppliers to help build its mobile 5G network. 5G is also created to offer lower latency, lower power consumption, and more bandwidth/capacity.

At the Snapdragon Summit, Samsung together with Verizon announced a strategic partnership to bring the first commercial 5G phone in the first half of 2019. The energy efficiency ratio of the Snapdragon 855 will be more prominent.

Right now, details on the chip are still pretty light.

Currently, the OnePlus 6T is the only phone directly available to us phone buyers that offers an embedded fingerprint sensor underneath its display. All in the name of progress, of course.

Apple is not expected to have an 5G iPhone ready until 2020. The press conference is now underway, and we will announce more details shortly.
