Qualcomm Unveils Snapdragon 855 Processor for 5G Phones

In terms of more traditional specs, the Snapdragon 855 is expected to be a 7nm, octa-core processor with Adreno 640 graphics and a Qualcomm Snapdragon X50 5G modem as well as a Snapdragon X24 LTE modem.

So far, AT&T has installed mobile 5G network equipment in areas in the 12 markets where it plans to make 5G available in 2018: Atlanta; Charlotte, North Carolina; Dallas; Houston; Indianapolis; Jacksonville, Florida; Louisville, Kentucky; Oklahoma City; New Orleans; Raleigh, North Carolina; San Antonio and Waco, Texas.

Key will be a new, 4th generation multi-core AI Engine, drawing together the Adreno, Kryo, and Hexagon components of the SoC. Qualcomm says it'll deliver up to three times the performance compared to its predecessor in the Snapdragon 845, now found in phones like the Pixel 3 XL and Galaxy Note 9, by intelligently choosing which core to task each time.

Samsung often only includes a Snapdragon chipset in certain versions of its flagship devices. "We continue to collaborate with Qualcomm Technologies to ensure our customers can unleash the power of their commercial 5G networks, to support the many new and diverse applications that will meet the demands of people and connected things, as they begin to launch commercial services in early 2019".

The 855 is the world's first 5G-ready chipset in any practical sense, as it will be the first to appear in 5G phones you can actually buy for use on 5G networks that actually exist.

12 million pounds of raw beef recalled nationwide
The USDA says salmonella is prevalent in raw poultry and meat and is reminding people of to properly cook and handle meat. The FSIS has posted and is updating product lists and lists of specific retailers that received the recalled beef.

"OnePlus and Samsung have committed to launching 5G handsets in the U.S. in 2019, Motorola has its god-awful 5G Mod for the Z3 (which we'll be seeing demoed here in Maui), and you can bet that every phonemaker will be plastering the internet with "[COMPANY] LAUNCHES FIRST [MEANINGLESS METRIC] 5G SMARTPHONE" press releases for the next year.

5G can offer data speeds up to 50 or 100 times faster than current 4G networks. We're out at the Summit as guests of Qualcomm, and will be bringing you all the news this week. The Snapdragon 855's performance is three times better than its predecessor, the Snapdragon 845.

In other words, the digital assistant on your phone will be smarter and faster than before. That will pave the way to new computational photography and video capture features, the chip-maker suggests.

And honestly, those AI-fueled charges are probably more integral to your life than you might know. "Now the 855 ISP has sight".

The modem would also enable "computer vision" to help phones recognize objects and faces, and support a new Qualcomm fingerprint sensor that can read a user's fingerprint through the glass screen of a smartphone.
