The best thing about this processor is that it should be the first one to support the 5G networks over the Snapdragon X50 modem.

Cristiano Amon, president of Qualcomm, told attendees at the summit that 5G will provide the "foundation for virtually every other electronic device to become connected", and despite the reservations of some that 5G is not yet ready for prime time, the United States chip giant prides itself on "making the impossible, inevitable". "The future we imagine with 5G is just beginning, and it is a great time to be a consumer". According to Qualcomm's President Cristiano Amon, by this time next year, the industry will be able to witness a flagship 5G-compatible smartphone from every Android smartphone maker across all US carriers. But we do know that the Snapdragon 855 is based on 7nm manufacturing process as compared to Snapdragon 845 that was based on 10nm architecture.

The biggest focus of Snapdragon 855 lies in the integrated modem.

The company has also added a dedicated computer vision processor for intelligent cameras. Snapdragon 855 offers a special Snapdragon Elite Gaming that combines various features to boost mobile gaming experience on high-end smartphones.

The company has also announced its own 3D Sonic Sensor, which it says will be the "the world's first commercial ultrasonic fingerprint solution supported under the display". "Furthermore, this technology enables sleek, cutting-edge form factors while distinguishing itself from alternatives with higher levels of security and accuracy", it said in its blog post.

Samsung is bringing one of the first 5G smartphones to the U.S.in the first half of 2019 thanks to the 855 chipset from Qualcomm that will unlock new and exciting interactions, such as the ability to do a 5G video call with crystal-clear pictures and no lag, he said.
