Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 will be the chip in flagship phones of 2019

The Snapdragon 8cx series is Qualcomm’s first chip specifically designed for computers

One of the biggest new features destined for the Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus has been unmasked at Qualcomm's annual Technology Summit in Maui.

Snapdragon 855's three performance cores clocked at 2.42GHz will be activated when a heavy app is launched in order to main fluidity.

Qualcomm unveiled its new mobile processor at the event, the Snapdragon 855.

In terms of overall performance, Qualcomm claims the 855's Kyro 485 CPU is 45 percent faster than its previous generation Kyro 385 CPU.

Qualcomm is uniquely positioned to propel 5G deployments with the Snapdragon 855 mobile platform, the Snapdragon X50 5G modem family and Qualcomm QTM052 mmWave antenna modules with integrated RF transceiver, RF front-end and antenna elements, according to Qualcomm president Cristiano Amon. The technology promises to deliver fiber-optic-like speeds to wireless devices with imperceptible transmission delays. This means that with HEIF image files users can add a portrait depth of field effect to an image, even if they didn't use their phone's portrait mode functionality to capture the image originally.

You want to know about how much faster a phone with Snapdragon 855 can be. Meanwhile, support for HEIF images - which can store multiple versions of shots, depth maps, and more in a single file - should both maximize on-device storage and make it easier to share those images. The new 3D Sonic Sensor uses ultrasonic scanning, rather than the optical systems now available on devices like the OnePlus 6T. It is the first to offer 5G, and will be in numerous 2019 flagships from Samsung, Google and other phone manufacturers.

Samsung, Ericsson and other equipment and device makers also attended. Additionally, the chipset integrates the company's recently announced Wi-Fi 6 and 60GHz-capable Wi-Fi antenna, allowing the 855, in the latter case, to deliver theoretical download speeds of up to 10 Gbps when connected to an 802.11ay compatible router.

Initially we'd expected that Samsung would be the first to offer a Snapdragon 855 phone. We expect this to either be the OnePlus 7, or perhaps the OnePlus 7T if the company decides to launch two phones next year.

In fact, though, it'll be OnePlus which ushers in the Snapdragon 855 age.

Verizon, AT&T, and Samsung also announced that a 5G-capable smartphone will be available in early 2019.
