Qualcomm announces Snapdragon 855 processor with 5G and performance improvements

05 December 2018

And as you'd expect, this 64-bit Arm-compatible system-on-chip is heavy on the 5G and AI hype. But they are expected to be available in handset products in the first half of 2019.

In addition to the hardware support in Snapdragon 855, Qualcomm also discussed today worldwide carrier rollout plans for 5G technology in 2019, including commitments from all four major USA carriers for both Sub-6 and mmWave networks. At its Snapdragon Tech Summit event, Qualcomm revealed not only its latest high-end mobile platform but also announced that its ultrasonic fingerprint reader is ready to become part of next year's flagships. The Snapdragon 855 is the first chipset from Qualcomm with a dedicated Neural Processing Unit (NPU), which will help in AI computations. Intel supplies cellular modems to Apple iPhones, and is keen to keep Cupertino onside by producing components that match Qualcomm's offerings. 5G network will be a reality across several regions including North America, Europe, China, Japan, Australia, South East Asia and South Korea. It'll also boost how fast a device will connect to the network with speeds as quick as a millisecond to start your download or upload. The Samsung phone will be AT&T's second 5G device, after the aforementioned Netgear Nighthawk mobile hotspot puck. Citing sources familiar with the matter, Bloomberg reported on Monday that Apple would wait until at least 2020 to release its first 5G iPhones. Your experience with today's 4G networks may temper that enthusiasm.

'The hottest thing': Trump launches final day blitz on Democrats

The smartphone could be the rumored high-end Galaxy S10 variant and/or the same 5G smartphone recently announced for Verizon. "We'll just keep deploying". However, in a saturated mobile market, it is up to device makers and carriers alike to properly present attractive use cases - alongside an appealing price point - if they want to create interest in 5G during its initial stages where availability of 5G networks are limited. The hotspot also has dual-band Wi-Fi. And that's really the only 5G "first" that matters.

Verizon already has a working 5G commercial service, 5G home, which was launched in October in Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles and Sacramento, with a "rapid expansion" on the cards. Verizon's 5G network now exists in only a small handful of cities.
