Qualcomm Ushers in Decade of 5G at Summit on Maui

OPPO Qualcomm 5G

Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon 855 processor in Maui this morning as part of its annual tech summit event. It's a 7nm chip with significant performance and efficiency gains, in addition, to support for "multi-gigabit" speeds on 5G networks. Samsung has stepped up to the plate. When it came to build the first round of 5G smartphones for the United States, Verizon and AT&T leaned on Samsung, probably because of the company's strong background in 5G research and its long business relationships with both carriers.

Aside from multiple camera setup, display notches, and all whatnot, the In-screen fingerprint reader has in the past year become a major feature of the mo-range and Premium smartphones, partly because they take up more space than the conventional rear fingerprint sensor. Additionally, with the Snapdragon 855, Qualcomm is aiming to deliver a great photography and gaming experience to the users. Verizon's 5G network now exists in only a small handful of cities.

Qualcomm's upcoming flagship mobile platform will carry a more conventional branding and not the 8150 branding as previously rumored.

But the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 doesn't just bring the usual speed and efficiency improvements.

The company has also announced its own 3D Sonic Sensor, which it says will be the "the world's first commercial ultrasonic fingerprint solution supported under the display".

Android smartphones look set for a major boost in 2019 with Qualcomm revealing its all-new Snapdragon 855 processor.

As per the chipset manufacturer's claims, the Snapdragon 855 will feature the company's fourth generation, multi-core Qualcomm AI Engine, which will offer three times better AI performance compared to the previous generation platform for mobiles by Qualcomm. Commercial 5G testing will be rolling out in 2019 with mobile devices and network launches taking place in North America, Europe, Japan, South Korea, Australia and China.

Instead, Qualcomm's all-new 3D Sonic Sensor creates a three-dimensional mould of the fingertip by bouncing soundwaves off the skin through the display. It's not surprising Qualcomm launched the Snapdragon Elite Gaming suite of features.

Sullivan also said that as the 5G standard allows for expansive capacity, the throttling thresholds that we're used to seeing on current mobile service plans will disappear. Furthermore, this technology enables cutting-edge form factors while distinguishing itself from alternatives with higher levels of security and accuracy.
