Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 is designed for 5G and AI

Samsung Galaxy M20 front panel with'waterdrop style notch leaks online

They'll not only be smarter and more responsive but will tap into the super-fast 5G network, shoot better photos and recognize images, and let us securely unlock our phones using in-screen fingerprint readers.

Samsung will probably rely on Qualcomm for its Snapdragon 855 chipset, who's details were leaked prior to the imminent announcement. The U.S.is only slightly behind South Korea in enabling 5G for consumers, as TechRadar reports that three South Korean operators launched their 5G networks for enterprise consumers in parts of major cities. (It's unclear if this pattern will continue with the S10.) Samsung is at the Qualcomm Snapdragon Tech Summit 2019 where the Snapdragon 855 has been unveiled, which we're taking that to mean the company is nearly certain to include the new Snapdragon on its next flagship. Verizon also has plans with Samsung to carry the same phone.

Qualcomm's Snapdragon chips now power over a billion phones ranging from entry-level devices to flagship models, which is undoubtedly what the Snapdragon 855 is destined for in the first quarter of 2019.

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

AI Performance Boost: The Snapdragon 855 includes Qualcomm's 4th-gen multi-core AI engine, which should deliver a 3x performance boost in artificial intelligence features over the Snapdragon 845.

The idea is to not only provide technology to get smartphones, laptops, and tablets online... but also smart connected devices including watches, cars, and smart home gadgets, just to name a few examples.

Devices with Snapdragon 855 should also see a significant improvement in computational photography thanks to the new Spectra 380 image signal processor (ISP), which will include computer vision capabilities. Unlike optical scanners, Katouzian said, the Sonic Scanner takes a 3D image of a fingerprint's image ad pores, making it hard to trick the sensor. 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.

Alex Katouzian, Qualcomm senior vice president of mobile, unveils the Snapdragon 855 during an event Tuesday in Hawaii.

That's because every recent flagship phone from LG has featured the top-end Qualcomm chipset at the time, so we'd expect the same from the LG G8.

It's official: the latest and greatest mobile platform from Qualcomm to lust after is the Snapdragon 855.
