When it comes to smartphone chipsets, the new boss in town is Snapdragon 855 which promises greater things for smartphones coming up in 2019. We can’t tell just how much smartphone manufacturers are jostling to have it on their devices next year.
Snapdragon 845 could not beat Apple’s A12 Bionic chipset but the Snapdragon has just shown the power to do that. Snapdragon 845 was beaten by two different chipsets from Apple (A12 and A11), making it not so great after all.
In 2019, Qualcomm has vowed to do the right thing by making chipsets that are faster than any other in the world. To do this, the company has set aside a smaller 7nm chip which very much improves efficiency over the prior 10nm chipsets. This chipset will also make use of the Kryo 485 CPU.
This, according to reports is where the real deal is. Overall, the performance percentage uplift will somewhat be 45 percent on the Snapdragon 845 CPU. Qualcomm itself came forward to claim that this is the highest percent of increase for any Snapdragon chipset ever.
So, when the user of a smartphone that makes use of Snapdragon 855 also connects it to 5G, he or she can have majestically fast smartphones that are unusually faster than the fastest phones sold now in the market. Of course, this speed boost will be very much noticeable when users start to use the chipset.
The latest Snapdragon 855 chipset is also sure to have better antennas and it will definitely allow downloads of 2GBps LTE with 60GHz Wi-Fi, which speeds up to 10GBps.
Also, there will be better photo and XR experience, which means that the camera will also receive a boost given it by Snapdragon 855 chipset. Actually, Qualcomm had already hinted at that previously. This will be capable of bringing about the quality of world’s first computer vision image signal processor.
Accordingly, deep learning will also be one of the main focus of the Snapdragon 855 chipset.Qualcomm has clarified in its recent report that it is going to enable everything that Apple didn’t and we see this as a herculean task—one which is achievable.
