Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC & Snapdragon Elite Gaming Accidentally Revealed

Share

The Snapdragon 855 chipset comes with the next generation GPU, the Adreno 640 with "Snapdragon Elite Gaming", which will enhance the overall GPU performance while gaming.

There's no word on whether this new phone will be the Galaxy S10 with Samsung only revealing that the device will be released early in 2019.

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. It's also believed that Samsung will completely ditch its iris scanning feature and replace it with a new version of its face unlock technology.

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). The proof-of-concept will be revealed at the annual Qualcomm Snapdragon Summit in Maui, the company has confirmed.

Mexico Rejects Washington’s Requests to Block Migrants From Seeking Asylum in US
The more violent the confrontations, some feel, the less likely the USA government will look kindly on their plight. "Being in Mexico does not mean they lose their ability, their right to request asylum", he added.

Stephen Curry responds to message from fan over no women’s shoe
"I know you support girl athletes because you have two daughters and you host an all-girls basketball camp", she wrote. Curry also invited his young fan to join him at a special event planned March 8 for International Women's Day.

Shortly after Verizon announced its plans to launch a Samsung 5G-ready smartphone in 2019, AT&T also joined the club today, with the major carriers in the US pledging support for the Korean giant. While cable modem alternatives using 5G in place of fixed-line broadband internet connections will reach the market first, all eyes are on mobile devices whether those be smartphones, tablets, laptops, VR and AR headsets, or something else. If you need to be reminded, the Korean giant also announced its Exynos Modem 5100, which will be compatible with 5G networks when it is found in mobile devices starting 2019.

Exactly what HTC is going to do in the world of smartphones right now is very unclear, but we expect the company to keep embracing the top-end processing tech for its next-gen phone. Qualcomm had said that there are now 20 operators and 18 OEMs committed to Qualcomm's vision of 5G, reinforced through the new 5G hardware being announced this week. Qualcomm is also pitching its talents in multi-gigabit WiFi, as part of a combined 5G, 4G LTE, and WiFi connectivity solution that, if all goes to plan, operates seamlessly from the perspective of the user. According to Twitter leakster Roland Quandt, the platform will be called Snapdragon 855 and will be manufactured on the 7nm process by TSMC. Let us know what you think. Given which phones debuted with Qualcomm's top-of-the-line chipset in recent years, it's not a big leap of logic to assume 2019 flagship devices from Samsung, LG, HTC and Google would at least have the option of adopting that feature. The event runs from December 4 - 6, so we can expect to get a look at the cutting-edge technology any minute now.

Later today, after lunch in fact, I have some time scheduled with Qualcomm's President, Cristano Amon.
