Samsung will make a 5G smartphone for AT&T too

Near the end of the presentation, however, Alex Katouzian, SVP and General Manager of mobile at Qualcomm revealed the name and some of the features of their next flagship mobile platform.

Previous rumors have suggested the chipset might end up being called the Snapdragon 8150, but alas, Qualcomm made a decision to go with the more logical naming scheme. Recall, however, that the Snapdragon 855 used for the demonstration should equip the future Samsung Galaxy S10 in the United States during its expected release for Spring 2019.

But Qualcomm won't be embedding a 5G-capable X50 modem in every single Snapdragon 855 unit. Unlike the 5G talks during last year's Snapdragon 845 announcement, this year 5G is much closer to becoming a reality.

In the US, Verizon and AT&T have already started 5G networks and have also promised to deliver 5G-ready hardware in the first part of 2019. The company showcased live 5G networks and mobile devices to usher in a new era of multi-gigabit connectivity powered by 5G, 4G LTE and Wi-Fi- a truly end-to-end experience featuring devices, experiences and networks.

Qualcomm claimed in the launch event that the new Snapdragon 855 SoC will be equipped with the world's first Computer Vision (CV) ISP that has AI-based capabilities. 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.

Additionally, the next-gen top-of-the-line chip comes with support for Qualcomm's newly announced 3D Sonic Sensor which is an ultrasonic type of fingerprint sensor that's fast and accurate. This under-display ultrasonic fingerprint sensor should be very secure as it takes a 3D image of the finger and won't be affected by oily or wet fingers. Meet the Snapdragon 855, which is the latest mobile SoC to be built on 7nm process tech (following the Huawei Kirin 980 and the Apple A12/ A12X), and promises unmatched performance and efficiency for the scores of flagship Android phones and other devices that will launch in 2019.
