Qualcomm quoted a 3X performance improvement over the last-generation 845, and up to a 2X improvement over competitors' 7nm processors.

Qualcomm is now hosting its Snapdragon Summit, so expect more details on the Snapdragon 855 to be revealed in the coming days.

For the next three days Qualcomm is holding its annual Snapdragon Summit in Maui, where the company is expected to reveal new and improved Snapdragon mobile processors, and with the help of carriers across the globe, layout plans for 5G networks heading into 2019. Initially, 5G will be available for AT&T customers using the Netgear Nighthawk 5G Mobile Hotspot; it's the first standards-based mobile 5G device in the world that can access a live millimeter wave 5G network, according to AT&T.

Meanwhile, Samsung's chief competitor Apple is purportedly in no rush to incorporate 5G network speeds to its best-selling iPhone line-up.

Samsung should be one of the first companies to come out with a 5G-ready phone. While cable modem alternatives using 5G in place of fixed-line broadband internet connections will reach the market first, all eyes are on mobile devices whether those be smartphones, tablets, laptops, VR and AR headsets, or something else. You'll also be able to download a year's worth of TV shows to watch on a flight right before you board.

Currently, the OnePlus 6T is the only phone directly available to USA phone buyers that offers an embedded fingerprint sensor underneath its display.

Both AT&T and Verizon shared the stage with Qualcomm to discuss their plans for deployments.

The 855 will arrive in high-end Android devices starting partway through next year.

The Galaxy S10 line is expected to do away with the front-facing iris scanner of Samsung's recent flagships as several sources already claimed it will instead be positioning an ultrasonic fingerprint reader as its primary screen-unlock method, though it's still likely to feature some form of facial recognition support.

Other Snapdragon capabilities teased by Qualcomm today support features that have become increasingly important to smartphone users.

Not only that, Qualcomm has stated on stage that the AI Engine on Snapdragon 855 has 2x more performance than its competitors. The press conference is now underway, and we will announce more details shortly. However, it seems like this modem may not be integrated into the Snapdragon 855 mobile platform. The chip will contain "the world's first computer vision ISP".

"AI doesn't just happen on one core", Katouzian said.
