Also included inside the reference 5G phone is Qualcomm's own RF antenna, QTM052, created to help eliminate interference and signal issues common in phones when something as simple as holding the device occurs.
Aside from the new flagship class Snapdragon 855 chip, Qualcomm has also announced another new product at its Snapdragon Tech Summit 2018 in the form of 3D Sonic Sensor. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 is official, and it's coming to mobile devices soon.
Apple, for its part, is taking its time with 5G adoption.
As expected, new releases from Qualcomm focus on improving the core pillars of the user experience, which include performance, AI, camera, entertainment and connectivity with the advent of 5G. Does that mean the next phone from Motorola will come with the Snapdragon 845 rather than the newly launched chipset? It's little surprise, then, that Qualcomm embedded a new computer vision ISP into the 855, so phones of the future will be better able to "recognize who and what you're capturing". It's also Qualcomm's first chip with built-in support for 5G wireless networks and with a 4th-gen AI engine that the company says offers a 3X improvement over the Snapdragon 845 when it comes to artificial intelligence. Lastly, the company announced the Qualcomm 3D Sonic Sensor-an under-display fingerprint sensor solution that uses ultrasonic waves, unlike optical under-display fingerprint sensors which use light.
Wilder remains WBC heavyweight champion after draw with Fury
Fury had every reason to be unhappy at the judges' verdict. "Only God knows how he got back up", Wilder said about the knockdown. I showed good heart to get up. "When you get two warriors, you get a great fight", Wilder said.
That include 5G connectivity, of course - Qualcomm touts the Snapdragon 855 as the first commercial mobile platform supporting multi-gigabit 5G.
The new chip also supports VR games at 8k resolutions and 120 frames per second, which should enable much more immersive mobile virtual reality experiences. With the 5G-ready Snapdragon 855 mobile platform, your next flagship smartphone will be capable of utilizing the high-speed 5G networks once operators are ready. It will come as a separated modem that manufacturers will have to buy and integrate into their devices.
Consumer-ready 5G networks have yet to be deployed in earnest in the US, but Qualcomm is getting ahead of the curve by announcing its latest processor and modem so that it can be integrated into upcoming smartphones as the first networks go live. Apple has had a rough relationship with Qualcomm lately, so it looks like the company now depends on Intel's own roadmap to deliver new advances in wireless technology to its customers.
