Qualcomm unveils 5G mobile platform, Snapdragon 855

Snapdragon 8cx Is Qualcomm's Latest Chip for Always-On Always Connected Windows 10 Machines

It is the first to offer 5G, and will be in numerous 2019 flagships from Samsung, Google and other phone manufacturers.

Amid the stratospheric level of hype over 5G, network operators and regulators are jostling over exactly how they will portion out radio spectrum for the technology, and how much it will cost and who's going to pay for it.

Apple, for its part, is taking its time with 5G adoption. When it came to build the first round of 5G smartphones for the United States, Verizon and AT&T leaned on Samsung, probably because of the company's strong background in 5G research and its long business relationships with both carriers. 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).

The new chip, the Snapdragon 855, will support multi-gigabit data speeds over the 5G networks.

The year 2019 is expected to usher the 5G era of mobile communications. Sullivan was at the Qualcomm Snapdragon Tech Summit.

Google Pixel 3 lite photographed next to original Pixel, several iPhones
The mid-range Pixel smartphone will look a lot like the Pixel 3 but expectedly with a single camera setup on the front. We recently reported that there might be another Pixel 3 device that Google skipped during their launch event.

It would not be a shock to find the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 sporting 5G right out the gate. Snapdragon 855 delivers highly intuitive on-device AI experiences - driven by our 4th-generation, multi-core Qualcomm® AI Engine, with up to three times the AI performance compared to the previous generation mobile platform. T-Mobile is now in the process of deploying its own mobile 5G network, and there's every reason to believe Verizon and AT&T are quietly doing so as well at this point.

5G is the evolution of 4G LTE, and promises faster and more reliable speeds.

In partnership with Verizon and AT&T, at the conference Samsung is showing a 5G device working on a live 5G network, a key proof point, said Justin Denison, SVP of Mobile Product Strategy and Marketing at Samsung Electronics America.

The next top-end addition to Qualcomm's Snapdragon processor family, which powers millions upon millions of Android smartphones, will be the 855. Along with Apple's history of being a fast-follower on new telecommunications technologies - to wait until early kinks get rectified - Bloomberg speculated that Apple's delay may also be tied to its feud with Qualcomm and shift to use Intel chips.

The two companies are set to unveil a proof of concept, powered by the upcoming flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon Mobile Platform with the Snapdragon X50 5G NR modem and antenna modules, at the annual Qualcomm Snapdragon Technology Summit in Maui, Hawaii, this week.
