Qualcomm also announced support for 5G in multiple countries coming next year.
Qualcomm's newly-announced Snapdragon 855 chipset has just been unveiled at the company's own Snapdragon Summit. It's still relatively early days for software and services fueled by machine learning, but the shift in the industry seems nearly palpable at this point. It's little surprise, then, that Qualcomm embedded a new computer vision ISP into the 855, so phones of the future will be better able to "recognize who and what you're capturing".
Qualcomm has also introduced a new ultrasonic sensor for under-display fingerprint sensors. The sensor will be more secure compared to 2D sensors used today.
Consumer-ready 5G networks have yet to be deployed in earnest in the US, but Qualcomm is getting ahead of the curve by announcing its latest processor and modem so that it can be integrated into upcoming smartphones as the first networks go live.
Apple, for its part, is taking its time with 5G adoption. (It's unclear if this pattern will continue with the S10.) Samsung is at the Qualcomm Snapdragon Tech Summit 2019 where the Snapdragon 855 has been unveiled, which we're taking that to mean the company is nearly certain to include the new Snapdragon on its next flagship.
Qualcomm is, of course, talking up the Snapdragon 855's 5G capabilities as we get ready to head into the new frontier of the latest and greatest wireless networks.
Justin Trudeau Refuses to Say 'USMCA' at Signing Ceremony
The Council of Canadians' honorary chairperson Maude Barlow, meanwhile, said the deal in its current form has "many poison pills". Kushner effusively praised Peña Nieto, saying he "put Mexican interests first even when it wasn't popular".
Samsung should be one of the first companies to come out with a 5G-ready phone. The sensor takes a full 3D image of the fingerprint unique to you, better than an optical solution. Unfortunately, this silicon will be running in smartphones sold outside of the U.S.
There's no official word yet on which phone makers might adopt the Snapdragon 855 and its 3D Sonic Sensor, though Katouzian said the first such devices would come out in the first half of next year.
Lastly, the "Snapdragon Elite Gaming" feature was teased, which should combine performance, audio and battery life for an improved gaming experience.
Google aren't at the Snapdragon Summit specifically, but the company has embraced Qualcomm's processing tech for the entire Pixel series so far. Qualcomm released the world's first fully integrated 5G new air interface (5G NR) millimeter wave and 6GHz RF module for 5G smartphones and other mobile terminals.
That's because every recent flagship phone from LG has featured the top-end Qualcomm chipset at the time, so we'd expect the same from the LG G8.
