Snapdragon 5G phones to arrive in Q2 2019

  • Qualcomm Unveils Snapdragon 855 Processor for 5G Phones

Rumors of the Samsung Galaxy S10 are beginning to gather steam, and the company is nearly certain to use the new Snapdragon 855 in some versions of this handset. Verizon's 5G service for smartphones will only begin rolling out in "early 2019".

So far, Qualcomm has only said that the chip will provide "up to three times the AI performance compared to the previous generation mobile platform", and it will add a new dedicated computer vision processor (handy for intelligent cameras). Since its the first day of Qualcomm's event, we don't get to see many details for Android's first mainstream 7nm SoC. 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 company claims that this sensor will map a 3D image of your fingerprint, and therefore overcome the limitations of physical and other virtual fingerprint sensors. This is the first live reference design ever displayed. We'll keep you updated on the latest. One potential downside to all this is that we're nearly certainly returning to the years of split phone SKUs - US phones with hyper-specific bands for each carrier that don't play nicely with one another, and non-US phones that don't work on our new networks, just the legacy ones. With ultrasonic, you won't even need to put your finger completely down on the display either, for it to recognize your finger. This is, after all, the next generation of mobile wireless - the one that will help drive economic growth, transform a broad set of industries, and change our lives as we know them - arriving just months from now. "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. We've seen similar implementations from Chinese OEMs like Huawei and OnePlus, but these first-generation implementations leave a lot to be desired with respect to speed. That's when we'll start to unpack all of the improvements. This also means that there won't be another hole in the cases for smartphones, on the back, because there would be no fingerprint sensor back there.
