Is this the Next Samsung S10?

11 February, 2019, 04:00 | Author: Rafael Roberts

"5G is going to be about more than just a network", said David Christopher, President of AT&T Mobility and Entertainment. Helping the Snapdragon 855 SoC deliver on its performance will be the Qualcomm Snapdragon X50 5G modem.

It's a 5G smartphone prototype from Samsung with a huge screen cutout at the top-right corner.

Chipmaker Qualcomm announced its new mobile processor, the Snapdragon 855, which will enable mobile devices to connect to the latest mobile networking standard, 5G. Unlike the 5G talks during last year's Snapdragon 845 announcement, this year 5G is much closer to becoming a reality.


The rapid development and rigorous work that went into next year's round of 5G network deployments were a big theme here at Tech Summit day 1, and it's not hard to see how insanely fast data speeds stand to change what we expect from our smartphones. Nicki Palmer, chief network engineering officer at Verizon, discussed Verizon's 5G strategy and the importance of collaboration in making 5G a reality; Kevin Petersen, senior vice president, wireless product marketing at AT&T, highlighted 5G commercialisation along with the industries and key consumer experiences that will drive demand for the next generation mobile network; Fotis Karonis, executive advisor for 5G at BT Group, discussed how 5G will roll out across the United Kingdom in 2019, address challenges that LTE now faces and introduce new customer experiences. There's a new dedicated vision processor that can process depth mapping at 60 fps, as well as capture 4K HDR video at 60fps.

Complimenting the Snapdragon 855 will be the separate Qualcomm 3D Sonic Sensor. Next, the company unveiled Snapdragon Elite Gaming, a set of features in the mobile platform to enhance mobile gaming experiences. In addition, the company says that its 3D Sonic Sensor will be able to detect fingerprints, even if there are "numerous contaminants" on the display, while providing high levels of accuracy and security.

More information on the Snapdragon 855 should be released over the next few days during the Snapdragon Technology Summit.
