Samsung 5G Prototype Smartphone Features a Corner Notch

New Qualcomm in-display fingerprint sensor is Face ID for your fingertip

The announcement was made during the company's Tech Summit in Hawaii, which a year ago saw the announcement of the Snapdragon 845.

Since 2019 is going to mark the kickstart of the 5G era, it's no wonder that one of the Snapdragon 855's main features is support for multi-gigabit data speeds on 5G networks.

The test organized by Verizon, Samsung, and Qualcomm hence wasn't about experiencing 1.7Gbps throughput speeds but was meant to showcase how the three companies are planning to handle the period "between Gs" wherein consumers won't be able to count on consistent 5G coverage and will often found themselves in areas where LTE will be the only viable option. AT&T then followed up this morning by confirming its plans to release a 5G Samsung phone early next year.

Samsung and Verizon have partnered up to release a 5G smartphone together in the first half of 2019. Samsung might be the first off-the-block with the new processor. The phones, when launched with these processors, can identify faces and objects apart from video capturing functions as well. All of this can be done while using 25% of the power used previously.

What's more, we also have a new Snapdragon Elite Gaming feature that's created to bring new gaming experiences to high-end handsets. The company says its new multi-core AI engine brings three times the AI performance compared to the Snapdragon 845. Qualcomm was kind of cryptic here, but we'll know more soon enough.

Qualcomm didn't go into too many details about the chip but did reveal the 855 will include 3D Sonic Sensor, an ultrasonic sensor, that makes it easier for phone makers to integrate fingerprint sensors under a phone's screen, improvements to gaming performance through a program it calls Elite Gaming, and improved AI integration for photography. The two companies will conduct a live virtual reality telemedicine demonstration in partnership with Columbia University using an Inseego mobile hotspot device, powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform and Snapdragon X50 5G modem and antenna modules with integrated RF transceiver, RF front-end and antenna elements, running on Verizon's 5G NR mobile network deployed at the event venue.
