Announcement of other products including new audio product expected
The Snapdragon 865 features the world's most advanced 5G platform Snapdragon X55 5G RF modem system, according to Qualcomm. So it promises to bring "unmatched" performance jumps and connectivity to next-generation smartphones. To be more exact, the company claims that SoC is 2x better than its predecessors, the Snapdragon 855, and 3x better than its competitors.
The Snapdragon X55 modem is compatible with LTE, 2G and 3G networks, and supports the mmWave and sub-6GHz bands. As mentioned at the beginning of the Snapdragon Summit – Day 1 broadcast, 5G is designed to work on the existing spectrum and, unlike what was imagined at the beginning of the 5G discussions, will coexist with previous standards.
According to the company, 450 million of these arrive by 2021
Snapdragon 765 and Snapdragon 765G are the hope of more affordable 5G smartphones next year. They bring integrated 5G connectivity, advanced Artificial Intelligence processing and select experiences from Snapdragon Elite Gaming. The "G" of "Gaming" in the second mentioned SoC makes it clear that new options for gamers will be coming soon, and Qualcomm also says that with them, features of the desktop experience will be present in future phones. Qualcomm says its new Snapdragon-700 series chips have specifications that don't even exist on premium chipsets from other companies.
More details about Qualcomm's new SoCs will be released during the broadcast of the second day of the Snapdragon Summit, tomorrow, the 4th. And Connected World will be eyeing to update this news with all the news.
