Qualcomm announces Snapdragon 855, enabling 5G connectivity

Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx

"Every Android vendor is working on 5G right now". Let us know what you think.

"Through our close collaboration with Qualcomm Technologies, Verizon reached a number of milestones over the previous year to help make 5G a reality for consumers in 2019", said Nicki Palmer, chief network engineering officer for Verizon.

Amon then welcomed Governor of Hawaii David Ige to the stage. Some of you might remember that Huawei Mobile Egypt was caught using a DSLR camera to simulate the AI camera feature of its Nova 3 and Nova 3i smartphones.

Qualcomm's upcoming flagship mobile platform will carry a more conventional branding and not the 8150 branding as previously rumored. 4G connectivity is a rarity and I doubt that despite the historical importance and tourist attraction my city has been for many years, that 5G will be deployed where I live anytime soon. This is the second device which will be available through the AT&T portfolio, having announced a 5G Mobile Hotspot, in partnership with Netgear back in October.

For over three decades, Qualcomm inventions have transformed how the world connects, computes, and communicates.

Other exciting aspects of Snapdragon 855 include the new 4th generation AI engine, consisting of the CPU, GPU, and Hexagon DSP, with claims of up to 3x the performance of Snapdragon 845 in certain AI workloads. Qualcomm is heavily invested in 5G, and it needs excitement around the standard to build if it's going to sell its pricey new modems to manufacturers. Our work in mmWave has played a significant role in assisting the mobile industry to tap into higher spectrum bands in order to increase network speed and capacity - and therefore significantly reduce data transmission costs. As a reminder, 5G promises to deliver data speeds of over 1Gbps, potentially hitting 10Gbps, but at the event, the devices were reaching only around 130-140Mbps.

Kevin Petersen, senior vice president, wireless product marketing at AT&T, added that AT&T expects the enterprise to become the first adopters of 5G, with use cases and interest by typical consumers to follow. It seems that we'll have to patiently wait until all the pieces fall into place and we can be genuinely amazed (hopefully) by what 5G can do. Even the way we communicate will be enhanced. Verizon's 5G network now exists in only a small handful of cities. And in that device will be Qualcomm's newest processor, what the company just announced as the Snapdragon 855.

Welcome the Qualcomm's 3D ultrasonic fingerprint sensor for smartphones.

Those are some of the Snapdragon 855's biggest tweaks and additions, but there's plenty more to take away from the Snapdragon Summit thus far.

Thanks to our committed team and breakthrough technologies - and the innovation from our worldwide ecosystem - 5G is here.
