Apparently, Qualcomm originally designed the chip to integrate the X24 LTE modem, but we know the X50 5G modem is ready to ship to other OEMs, so we could definitely see handhelds sporting both the Snapdragon 855 and the X50 5G modem. The Snapdragon 855 is the first chipset from Qualcomm with a dedicated Neural Processing Unit (NPU), which will help in AI computations. I promise our readers that I will maintain my trademark snarky impartiality as relates to anything said on a keynote stage or by a person who smiles at me in a way I find suspicious in either duration or intensity.
The new and fast Adreno 640 graphics will be optimized with a feature called "Snapdragon Elite Gaming", and fresh computational photography algorithms are added for system-level processing of the hottest trend in mobile picture-taking. Huawei and Intel may dispute this characterization, but no products on the market use their 5G tech. Qualcomm also announced support for 5G in multiple countries coming next year. And that's really the only 5G "first" that matters. The US teleco has issued a press statement on the partnership with Samsung, confirming the arrival of this 5G phone. Right now, the carrier plans to introduce 5G in 12 markets before the end of 2018, including Atlanta, Indianapolis, San Antonio and New Orleans.
Details on the Verizon/Samsung 5G Android-based smartphone launch are light for now.
The screen we found here clearly doesn't fit into any of those categories, but again, that doesn't The company has been very tight-lipped about the rest of the phone's specifics, and it may well just represent one possible evolutionary branch Samsung considered for its future smartphones. Huawei recently teased a press render of its upcoming phone on Weibo, a popular microblogging site in China. Qualcomm has already mentioned that we can expect plenty of 5G and Snapdragon mobile platform talk, so needless to say, we're pumped for this.
Does this concept make you think that the Infinity-O display would be a much better choice for the Galaxy S10 compared to a notch?
