The chipset will be available for OEMs from the next few weeks, and Qualcomm has confirmed that companies like Samsung, LG, Sony, Xiaomi, Google, Sony, and OnePlus will launch smartphones based on Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 in the Q1 or Q2 of 2019.
2019 will be a big year for the next generation of cellular technology: 5G.
Samsung teased the Galaxy A8s phone on Chinese social media platform Weibo revealing the screen design. When fully implemented, it will offer capacity and download speeds much faster than a 4G LTE network. They include what is claimed to be a Galaxy S10 Plus, which has two cameras that live inside what appears to be an Infinity O hole in the front of the display. The company plans to transition these deployments to use industry standard 5G NR equipment in the future, though it has not provided a timeline for this transition. "We continue to collaborate with Qualcomm Technologies to ensure our customers can unleash the power of their commercial 5G networks, to support the many new and diverse applications that will meet the demands of people and connected things, as they begin to launch commercial services in early 2019".
The race to 5G is ramping up. What's unchanged compared to older rumors is the suggestion that Samsung is doing away with a traditional top bezel design and will instead be situating its next front-facing camera inside of a cutout that's not a traditional notch but is literally surrounded by the phone's display from all sides.
According to the leaks, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 will be the first mobile processor to support multi-gigabit 5G connections.
Qualcomm's network partners are already pushing a strong 5G narrative here in the United States, with AT&T and Verizon leading the way. Together, Samsung and Verizon have made huge gains in bringing 5G commercial services to consumers in several cities. If you apply Qualcomm's 45 percent number, the Geekbench 4 score on the 855 would go to 13,070.
