The Snapdragon 855 mobile platform also gains a new Hexagon 690 processor with twice as many vector cores as the previous Hexagon 685 processor found in the Snapdragon 845, as well as a redesigned Hexagon Tensor Accelerator that helps the new Snapdragon 855 chip achieve 3x machine learning performance over the Snapdragon 855.

In terms of more traditional specs, the Snapdragon 855 is expected to be a 7nm, octa-core processor with Adreno 640 graphics and a Qualcomm Snapdragon X50 5G modem as well as a Snapdragon X24 LTE modem.

Apple, for its part, is taking its time with 5G adoption. The company is hosting events with more information about the Snapdragon 855 throughout the Summit, and most of the mobile platform's specifications and features will be made public during Day 2. It's also likely this chipset will be included in the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 later in the year too.

Qualcomm's next flagship smartphone processor will start showing up in 2019, and unsurprisingly it should offer better all-around performance than its predecessors.

Barcelona v Tottenham: Mauricio Pochettino believes Spurs can win
Spurs play Arsenal twice in the space of a fortnight as they come up against each other in the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup. Pochettino's side will go out if they fail to beat the Italian side at Wembley.

That include 5G connectivity, of course - Qualcomm touts the Snapdragon 855 as the first commercial mobile platform supporting multi-gigabit 5G.

With 5G capabilities, Denison said, you'll be able to make a video call with a loved one that will feature "crystal-clear video" and "flawless" audio. 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 also mentioned that the Image Signaling Processor (ISP) was really upgraded big time and there will be more details tomorrow. Qualcomm states that them using ultrasound in the 3D Sonic Sensor is more secure and accurate than the alternative.

"This is the future of fingerprint technology", Katouzian said. Apple has never been first when it comes to integrating new network technology in the iPhone, waiting for others to work out the initial issues such as battery life and overall impact on daily use. But Google's Pixel 3 relies heavily on computational photography to handle features like bokeh effect blurs, digitally enhanced zooms and better low-light imagery, so we'd expect the Computer Vision features in Qualcomm's chipset to take on similar tasks.

The Snapdragon 855 also includes Snapdragon Elite Gaming, a feature that Qualcomm says will bring new gaming experiences to high-end smartphones.
