Qualcomm announced the new products at its Tech Summit in Maui; we'll find out more as the conference continues. Going by the rumours, the smartphone will be powered by 710 SoC and will come clubbed with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal memory. Luckily for us some of these leak and we get an early look at what may be a new, unannounced flagship phone. The components inside the phones are key for enabling new features that make the devices must-have.

While Qualcomm will offer the 855 with and without 5G (as it confirmed was the plan with its 5G X50 modem earlier this year), there's no doubt that for consumers, OEMs, and operators alike, next-gen network technologies are the main draw here.

Also included inside the reference 5G phone is Qualcomm's own RF antenna, QTM052, created to help eliminate interference and signal issues common in phones when something as simple as holding the device occurs.

As with 3G and 4G, the two previous generations of mobile network technology, Apple is tipped to will wait as long as a year after the initial deployment before its main product becomes compatible with the technology. Beyond that, there's not much else we can tell you today. Snapdragon Elite Gaming, which includes Qualcomm working with top gaming companies to tune the Snapdragon mobile gaming experience. It lets the technology tap into the multiple cores of the chip to process information faster than before. For starters, artificial intelligence (AI) will play a big role with the Snapdragon 855, with its fourth-generation multi-core AI providing a 3x uplift in performance compared to the Snapdragon 845.


In other words, the digital assistant on your phone will be smarter and faster than before. "It efficiently picks the proper core for the best user experience". According to the company, more information regarding the chip will only be revealed during a more in-depth session at the event later tomorrow. But Google's Pixel 3 relies heavily on computational photography to handle features like bokeh effect blurs, digitally enhanced zooms and better low-light imagery, so we'd expect the Computer Vision features in Qualcomm's chipset to take on similar tasks.

Are you a techie who knows how to write? "Now the 855 ISP has sight". What's missing from the back is a conventional fingerprint reader which Samsung is now said to have moved beneath the display of its next Android flagship. Set to launch alongside the 855 in the first half of 2019, the 3D Sonic Sensor uses ultrasonic waves to image and authenticate an individual's fingerprint.

"This is the future of fingerprint technology", Katouzian said.
