Qualcomm's 2019 flagship chipset is called the Snapdragon 855

5G represents a significant jump from 4G, offering higher mobile internet speeds and more bandwidth.

Verizon's 5G service will go live in early 2019, says the company.

On Monday, Verizon and Samsung announced plans to launch one of the first commercial 5G smartphones in the first half of 2019, which will use chips from Qualcomm. Also quoted was that the new S855 includes a separate Computer Vision (CV) image signaling processor, which the company states is an industry first, and will help to enhance computational photography and video capture features. The Snapdragon 855's performance is three times better than its predecessor, the Snapdragon 845.

Fury counter-punched his way through the fifth round, though most of the shots he threw upstairs were blocked by Wilder . Especially the Mexican-American for his wide card of 115-111 in favour of the defending WBC champion.


Verizon isn't the only carrier making 5G device plans.

Since MKBHD spotted the tweet, Samsung has not only deleted the tweet itself, but also the entire Samsung Nigeria account.

Qualcomm's upcoming flagship mobile platform will carry a more conventional branding and not the 8150 branding as previously rumored.

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.

The announcement by the companies may point to a 5G-capable Galaxy S10 that would be exclusive to Verizon. Under the hood, it will come with Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 710 octa-core processor backed by a sumptuous 6GB RAM, 64GB (or more) storage, Android Pie and a 3,400mAh battery, which should be enough to keep the device running for a whole day under normal usage. (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. We already know that Lenovo and Motorola intend to launch a 5G "moto mod" for its Motorola z3 smartphone at around this time, using the X50 modem, and we expect to see this demonstrated at the Summit. Beyond that, there's not much else we can tell you today. The company didn't expound upon this other than to say that it will bring "next level gaming" to a new generation of smartphones.

Not only that, Qualcomm has stated on stage that the AI Engine on Snapdragon 855 has 2x more performance than its competitors.

We're expecting to see the new Snapdragon 855 chipset in a variety of top-end phones throughout 2019 and beyond, and we've had a think about the most likely up-and-coming devices that will likely include the cutting-edge chipset.
