Qualcomm Unveils Snapdragon 855 Processor for 5G Phones

AT&T also noted that it's working with Samsung to create a manufacturing-focused 5G Innovation Zone, the goal of which is to use 5G to enable new robotic manufacturing capabilities. The hotspot is powered with the Qualcomm Snapdragon X50 5G modem. Make no mistake, the internal platform name of "sm8150" had been accurate all along, but the company chose to continue their existing branding scheme for the next mobile platform's marketing name-not unlike older Qualcomm flagship mobile platforms like the msm8996 (Qualcomm Snapdragon 820) or msm8974 (Qualcomm Snapdragon 800).

The 855's millimetre-wave 5G electronics, capable of downloading data at multi-gigabit speeds over the air, were shown off in July.

Samsung and Verizon announced on Monday that the two companies are partnering to bring one of the first 5G smartphones to the market.

We'll be hearing more on the Snapdragon 855 here at Qualcomm's SD Summit, out in super-sunny and super-buggy Hawaii.

Qualcomm presented a new flagship chipset Snapdragon 855

This is a big commitment as Samsung is doing its own version of 5G but it looks like Qualcomm is still faster than its competition. And now, it is unofficially official that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Mobile Solution is the next flagship SoC from Qualcomm, which will power the majority of the flagship smartphones of 2018. The report from late November says the phone will feature the Snapdragon 8150, which was a rumored codename for the chipset we now know to be the Snapdragon 855. With such drastic improvements in performance, we're bound to not only see improvements in current user experiences but also see new use cases for wireless services, including the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), Cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X), and mobile extended reality (XR).

Qualcomm's 3D Sonic Sensor will start showing up in phones, an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor that promises fast and accurate unlocking (superior to optical sensors).

Just like the last generation Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 is an Octa-core chipset, manufactured using a 7nm FinFET process by TSMC (Taiwan Silicon Manufacturing Company) with three CPU clusters. The Snapdragon 855 is the worlds first chipset to come with computer vision ISP, which Qualcomm says is going to change how one captures videos and pictures.

5G will be rolled out, starting in the first half of 2019. Aside from that of course there will be an improvement in heat dissipation, longer battery life and more power/speed - what else do you want?
