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. Does that mean the next phone from Motorola will come with the Snapdragon 845 rather than the newly launched chipset?

Verizon already has a working 5G commercial service, 5G home, which was launched in October in Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles and Sacramento, with a "rapid expansion" on the cards. 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.

There was also an official mention of Qualcomm's new 3D Sonic Sensor - a commercial ultrasonic fingerprint solution created to work underneath a smartphone or tablet/laptop display for an in-screen fingerprint area larger than current image sensor based technologies.

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.

The GPU promises a performance boost of 20% over Qualcomm's current offering, too, while also receiving new features such as support for Vulkan 1.1 support, HDR10+ (a first for mobile), and physically-based rendering, all of which should contribute to more realistic-looking games, according to Qualcomm. They'll not only be smarter and more responsive but will tap into the super-fast 5G network, shoot better photos and recognize images, and let us securely unlock our phones using in-screen fingerprint readers.

Qualcomm's next flagship smartphone processor will start showing up in 2019, and unsurprisingly it should offer better all-around performance than its predecessors. Qualcomm had said that there are now 20 operators and 18 OEMs committed to Qualcomm's vision of 5G, reinforced through the new 5G hardware being announced this week. Apparently, Qualcomm originally designed the chip to integrate the X24 LTE modem, but we know the X50 5G modem is ready to ship to other OEMs, so we could definitely see handhelds sporting both the Snapdragon 855 and the X50 5G modem. Qualcomm states that this will be the first mobile platform to support multi-gigabit 5G, along with all the potential that 5G entails. We don't think so. It's promising to run through the specifics of the mobile platform tomorrow, on the second day of its Snapdragon Summit 2018. Some premature publishing by a particular portal lead to a reveal of the key specifications of the Snapdragon 855 CPU that will take the crown from the Snapdragon 845 SoC in a few hours.
