Qualcomm's march to add this high-speed next-gen mobile broadband support to its chips, and therefore future Android phones, was enough to give Intel a fright: Chipzilla last month axed its 5G XMM 8060 cellular modem, due out mid-2019, and brought forward its 5G XMM 8160 modem to ship in 2020. The platform will also be 5G ready thanks to being compatible with Qualcomm's Snapdragon X50 modem.
When fully implemented, it will offer capacity and download speed many times faster than today's 4G LTE network.
(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 are expected to show off the Snapdragon 855 tonight in a keynote event at their tech summit in Hawaii. "Together, Samsung and Verizon have made huge gains in bringing 5G commercial services to consumers in several cities". The Snapdragon 855's performance is three times better than its predecessor, the Snapdragon 845. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 is official, and it's coming to mobile devices soon. Qualcomm states that them using ultrasound in the 3D Sonic Sensor is more secure and accurate than the alternative.
China stays silent as Trump talks up trade truce
The deal will also keep, at least for now, Trump from placing another $267 billion worth of Chinese goods under tariffs. Let the negotiations begin. "We didn't really give up anything to China".
Michelle Obama's advice to Meghan Markle
I love my husband, and we have a great marriage, and we've had a great marriage, but marriage is hard work. Michelle Obama has offered some advice to the Duchess of Sussex - take your time.
Klopp charged for derby celebrations
Also, the stoicism and balance of the admirable Tony Abrahams on other threads sends me off to bed feeling much better. I think many people wouldn't have been in position to follow up but he's gambled and it has worked out for us.
It also supports Qualcomm's 3D Sonic Sensors, which are ultrasonic fingerprint readers that can be placed under smartphone displays, tucking them out of sight and doing away with fingerprint sensors in buttons.
5G will be rolled out, starting in the first half of 2019. So far there are no details on the CPU and GPU specs including the type of cores used.
One final change could be the inclusion of an all-new and much faster processor and big news on this technology could be announced today. The updated engine should deliver a 3x performance boost in artificial intelligence features over what we saw with the Snapdragon 845 now found in many Android flagship devices.
Alex Katouzian, Qualcomm senior vice president and general manager of mobile, said Tuesday that the Snapdragon 855 will contain the company's fourth-generation AI engine. There will also be a new, dedicated computer vision processor which will apparently be able to not only recognize who you're capturing with the capture, but what you're taking a picture of. Apple has never been first when it comes to integrating new network technology in the iPhone, waiting for others to work out the initial issues such as battery life and overall impact on daily use.
