The forthcoming 855 has a whole host of other improvements over the current Snapdragon 845, including dedicated AI processing and XR (extended reality) processing for the future of mobile device capabilities.
Key will be a new, 4th generation multi-core AI Engine, drawing together the Adreno, Kryo, and Hexagon components of the SoC. Qualcomm says it'll deliver up to three times the performance compared to its predecessor in the Snapdragon 845, now found in phones like the Pixel 3 XL and Galaxy Note 9, by intelligently choosing which core to task each time. More details about the SoC will be unveiled at the annual Snapdragon Technology Summit in Hawaii. This chip is based on the TSMC's 7nm process and its performance has been improved significantly.
That means the A12 Bionic is roughly 28% faster than the Snapdragon 845. It also has an all-new computer vision ISP (image signal processor) for new computational photography processing and video capture improvements.
With these new sensors, the company will be offering under-display fingerprint scanning technology under a new called Ultrasonic Fingerprint Solution.
Other features for the Snapdragon 855 mobile platform include the company's latest generation of "3D Sonic Sensor", which would allow smartphone and notebook makers to embedded fingerprint sensors beneath the devices' screens, freeing manufacturers to also create devices with "edge-to-edge" screens (at least those which have been unwilling to put the fingerprint readers on the back of smartphones).
Qualcomm's next flagship smartphone processor will start showing up in 2019, and unsurprisingly it should offer better all-around performance than its predecessors.
Trump says hopes to meet N.Koreas Kim in January or February
A North Korean soldier defected to South Korea across the eastern land border on Saturday, Seoul's Joint Chiefs of Staff said. But while inter-Korean relation-building has continued apace over the past year, talks with the U.S. have stalled.
Late President George H.W. Bush lies in state in Washington
Released on November 13, Obama's memoir, Becoming , sold more than two million copies in North America in its first 15 days. Whenever a president dies, all current and living presidents typically attend the funeral, as well as their partners.
Outside America, the 5G story seems muddier (which is not surprising, as 4G was slow on global adoption as well), which probably makes the Snapdragon 855 a bit less exciting.
The devices will run on a "Qualcomm Snapdragon X50 5G NR modem and antenna modules with integrated RF transceiver RF front-end and antenna elements", Verizonsaid.
Qualcomm, the largest supplier of mobile phone chips, said Snapdragon 855 would power Samsung 5G smartphones that Verizon Communications and Samsung said on Monday would be released in the United States in the first half of 2019.
Samsung is looking to get a first-mover advantage in 5G smartphones, with rival Apple reportedly planning to sit out of the game until 2020.
For now, it is not known if any companies have adopted Qualcomm's new sensor for their products.
China imposed a retaliatory 25 percent tariff on imports of cars from the USA over the summer in response to Trump's own tariffs. That gives him a strong political incentive to ensure talks don't fail, as he girds for the next presidential election in 2020.
The Hawks are hopeful that first-round draft pick Trae Young will be able to emerge from his shooting slump. Robert Covington added 17 points, 10 rebounds and four steals in a spirited effort for the losing side.
However he was released in October after police failed to connect his handwriting to the writing in the notebook. Mr Nizamdeen endured more than four weeks in solitary confinement after he was arrested on terrorism charges.
The filing details the series of false statements Flynn made to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Justice Department. Stone told ABC News on Sunday he would not testify against Trump and has not discussed a pardon with the president.
Jake Paul was beaten out by child YouTube star RyanToysReview, who topped his earnings by half a million dollars at $22 million. A 7-year-old toy reviewer has become YouTube's highest-earning star, making $29.8 million in one year.
The possibility of such sensitive information being sent to TRAI DND is likely why Apple said that there was risk to user privacy. After users send an SMS via the app, they will need to go into DND settings on the OS and switch on DND.
Paul Pogba has come in for a whole heap of criticism this season from both the Manchester United fans and his own manager. Further forward, Granit Xhaka is suspended which could see Mateo Guendouzi coming into the centre of midfield.
Warner (D-Va.) weighed in later. "He (Trump) is attempting to influence an ongoing investigation in an overt way". Corsi has released documents showing prosecutors offered him a deal to plead guilty to a false statements charge.
McCoy was declared out for the game coming out of halftime, and the latest report from ESPN's Lisa Salters shared the bad news. McCoy was sacked by Malcolm Jenkins in the first half, and it was clear following the play that something wasn't right.
The Shiite group would use firepower and "the surprise component" of terror tunnels to 'allow infiltrators into Israel. There was no immediate comment from Hezbollah and its Al-Manar TV did not make any mention of the Israeli operation.
Verizon and Samsung to launch 5G smartphone in 2019
