Alex mentioned that the Snapdragon 855 matches the X50 modem for future 5G enabled smartphones.
More information on the Snapdragon 855 should be released over the next few days during the Snapdragon Technology Summit. It's still relatively early days for software and services fueled by machine learning, but the shift in the industry seems nearly palpable at this point. 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.
Qualcomm has also introduced a new ultrasonic sensor for under-display fingerprint sensors.
The Snapdragon 855 mobile platform also gains a new Hexagon 690 processor with twice as many vector cores as the previous Hexagon 685 processor found in the Snapdragon 845, as well as a redesigned Hexagon Tensor Accelerator that helps the new Snapdragon 855 chip achieve 3x machine learning performance over the Snapdragon 855.
Expect more flagship phones to feature fingerprint sensors embedded underneath their front displays in 2019, along with 5G connectivity.
The upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 mobile platform will be manufactured on a 7nm process, as previously disclosed.
Qualcomm today took the wraps off of the Snapdragon 855, its newest flagship mobile chipset.
"5G is going to be about more than just a network".

How those plates shift determines how strong an quake is and how far away from the epicenter the natural disaster can be felt. He said: "The main thought that was going through my head as I was trying to get out the door was, 'I want this to stop'.
Samsung should be one of the first companies to come out with a 5G-ready phone.
Lastly, a 3D Sonic Sensor is capable of reading and authenticating a fingerprint even when there are obstructions like dirt and oil on the fingerprint. Unfortunately, this silicon will be running in smartphones sold outside of the U.S.
The report claims the company will save 5G for an upcoming device set to be released later in 2019, so you may have to wait a while to get the biggest benefit from the Snapdragon 855.
It's official: the latest and greatest mobile platform from Qualcomm to lust after is the Snapdragon 855.
Katouzian also said Qualcomm's updated AI engine should outpace what rival chipmakers are doing with artificial intelligence, promising a 2x improvement over the Kirin 980.
That's because every recent flagship phone from LG has featured the top-end Qualcomm chipset at the time, so we'd expect the same from the LG G8.
