Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Could Be Faster Than Apple's A12 CPU

The company touts huge performance increases that could even allow it to overtake the Apple A12 Bionic. It also has an all-new computer vision ISP (image signal processor) for new computational photography processing and video capture improvements. However, the hardware that Samsung is expected to use in its mobile phones will most likely be different compared to the models it sells globally.

The upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 mobile platform will be manufactured on a 7nm process, as previously disclosed.

In contrast to now available optical in-display fingerprint sensors, such as the one that's available in the OnePlus 6T, the company's new 3D Sonic Sensor technology uses ultrasonic waves to capture and authenticate an individual's fingerprint instead of a 2D image.

Qualcomm's next flagship smartphone processor will start showing up in 2019, and unsurprisingly it should offer better all-around performance than its predecessors. The name and initial details were unveiled during the company's annual "Tech Summit" in Hawaii, where it's taking a full week to unveil its upcoming plans for mobile computing and networks. And while that will enable you to enjoy the faster network speeds that 5G promises, that will depend on 5G wireless networks coming online, something that will happen throughout 2019.

Qualcomm is now hosting its Snapdragon Summit, so expect more details on the Snapdragon 855 to be revealed in the coming days.

Wilder retains heavyweight crown after Fury thriller ends in draw
Fury had little to say to BT Sport after the weigh-in, simply saying of Wilder: "He's flapping". "We are two great champions". We poured our hearts out. "I was never going to be knocked out tonight".

One of the biggest features for next year's phone is the ability to use 5G.

That said, 5G connectivity is just a few months away. 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. Therefore, in theory, the Snapdragon 855 could be quite a bit faster than the A12 Bionic, but that remains to be seen when devices with it ship in the first half of 2019. Qualcomm released the world's first fully integrated 5G new air interface (5G NR) millimeter wave and 6GHz RF module for 5G smartphones and other mobile terminals.

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.

Google aren't at the Snapdragon Summit specifically, but the company has embraced Qualcomm's processing tech for the entire Pixel series so far.
