Snapdragon 855 is Qualcomm's next flagship mobile platform built for 5G

OnePlus 5G

The new Snapdragon 855 SoC will come with 5G X50 modem and will bring 5G network capabilities onboard smartphones in the United States of America as soon as in the next year. This platform will deliver 5G internet connectivity on mobile devices. To do this, the equipment manufacturer used a Samsung smartphone prototype. Snapdragon 855 is the world's first commercial 5G mobile platform, designed for premium-tier flagship devices.

A concept device of the new 5G phone from Samsung and Verizon will be unveiled later this week at Qualcomm's Snapdragon Technology Summit.

The devices will run on a "Qualcomm Snapdragon X50 5G NR modem and antenna modules with integrated RF transceiver RF front-end and antenna elements", Verizon said. Qualcomm also announced support for 5G in multiple countries coming next year.

5G will be the biggest differentiating feature of smartphones in 2019, but only a few cities will have access to 5G carrier networks when they begin launching.

We also have yet to see how well 5G will work on mobile devices, as 5G primarily transmits on the "millimeter wave" spectrum that has trouble penetrating walls and other obstacles.

When fully implemented, it will offer capacity and download speed many times faster than today's 4G LTE network. And that's really the only 5G "first" that matters.

In Europe, EE intends to launch 5G networks in major United Kingdom cities including London, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Manchester, and Leeds through 2019.

Inseego's upcoming 5G hotspot for VerizonWireless hotspots from Netgear and Inseego figured heavily in the 5G demos AT&T and Verizon put on as part of Qualcomm's 5G-focused summit.

The new chipset also has a new Image Signal Processor (ISP), which Qualcomm is calling Computer Vision (CV) ISP to support "computational photography and video capture features".

5G could impact a broad set of user experiences, from the way we watch content to how we socialize, game, and shop. Notably, Apple and Samsung have been taking a jab at each other by releasing premium phones in the similar price segment, however, right now, Apple is engaged in a legal battle with Qualcomm. Its name is the Snapdragon 855, although internally it has been known by the initials SDM8150. "Qualcomm has worked relentlessly to drive the development and commercialization of 5G, inventing the leading breakthrough technologies that will fuel this area", Amon said as he wrapped up his keynote.
