Qualcomm Announces Snapdragon 855 With 3x AI Performance

Together with a new Kryo CPU core (likely based on Cortex-A76), the chip is expected to see an increase in performance of 45% over the CPU found in the Snapdragon 845.

Qualcomm's Snapdragon platform now powers most high-end Android smartphones, including Samsung's flagship phones.

Along with Verizon, AT&T also served up 5G demonstrations, and BT Group in the United Kingdom and Telstra in Australia attended to talk about the coming rollout of 5G starting next year. "Qualcomm has worked relentlessly to drive the development and commercialization of 5G, inventing the leading breakthrough technologies that will fuel this area", Amon said as he wrapped up his keynote.

While Qualcomm has explained in detail how the Snapdragon 855 stands out and is of relevance to OEMs, we are simplifying the complexity of the latest flagship chipset for end users to understand what's in store.

U.S. telecom carrier Verizon and Samsung have announced to jointly launch one of the first commercial 5G smartphones in the United States in the first half of 2019.


If 5G quickly gains traction with consumers next year, it also could help push forward a resolution in Qualcomm's wide-ranging legal war with Apple. Then join our Team!

That said, there's nothing wrong in purchasing photos and using them on your website, but, what's wrong and strictly unacceptable is promoting those photos as camera samples of your smartphone. Event organizers say Telstra is scheduled to share an exciting 5G update during the second day of the summit. To take advantage of this, however, devices must be able to support 5G connectivity. It also suggests the 855 itself is using a 7nm manufacturing process, which is no surprise.

The first smartphone with the Snapdragon 855 and a 5G modem should be from Samsung and will be released in the first half of 2019. This is the first live reference design ever displayed. Its name is the Snapdragon 855, although internally it has been known by the initials SDM8150.

"Through our close collaboration with Qualcomm Technologies, Verizon reached a number of milestones over the a year ago to help make 5G a reality for consumers in 2019", said Nicki Palmer, chief network engineering officer, Verizon. Qualcomm officially announced the new processor at its conference in Hawaii on Tuesday. This marks the Snapdragon's first shrink in transistor size since 2016. It's also the first image signal processor to support HDR10+ video recording. It's not surprising Qualcomm launched the Snapdragon Elite Gaming suite of features. 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. AT&T, BT, EE, T-Mobile, Orange, LG, Google, HTC, Netgear, Samsung, Sony, Verizon, and many other partners are on-board to provide 5G connectivity with Qualcomm. "Furthermore, this technology enables sleek, cutting-edge form factors while distinguishing itself from alternatives with higher levels of security and accuracy", it said in its blog post.
