In addition to providing a more indepth look at the processor, Qualcomm confirmed the first Snapdragon 865-powered smartphones should arrive in early 2020.

So the Samsung Galaxy S11 and Galaxy S11 Plus, and perhaps the Galaxy S11e in the event that it keeps on utilizing a leader level chip (like the S10e did a year ago), ought to get 5G speeds out of the crate.

Yes, in spite of the many benefits Qualcomm touts, the Snapdragon 865 is not an integrated 5G solution.

Overall, Snapdragon 865 has a camera architecture that should advance computational photography and Qualcomm noted that the system can capture the largest photos ever on a mobile device. Qualcomm is going all-in on 5G with the platform, and it will be interesting to see what that does to phone pricing in the flagship segment.

In a time when technology is taking over, and global connectivity is increasingly important, OPPO strives to pioneer the 5G arena.

Qualcomm's chipsets dominate the 4G Android world in the USA, as well.

Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865, available in the first quarter of 2020, will include the company's X55 5G Modem-RF System and deliver peak speeds of 7.5 Gbps.

Apple, which builds its own processors, recently signed a multi-year deal with Qualcomm to buy its 5G modems.

The self-professed Snickers fan came in at a sizable 283 pounds, 15 pounds heavier than he weighed in June. Heavyweight champion Andy Ruiz Jr weighed in at 128.3 kilograms, 6 kilograms heavier than the first fight.

Qualcomm, as expected, has unveiled its next flagship mobile processor, the Snapdragon 865 along with the mid-range oriented Snapdragon 765/765G ((gaming-oriented)) for powering the mid-price smartphones in the coming months.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 is now official and destined for your next premium smartphone.

The tech summit, running from Tuesday to Thursday, focuses on the latest development of 5G technology. I'm looking forward to hearing how the 865 will fix that. Basically, if a telephone has the 865, it has a 5G chip.

"The best 4G phone you can buy today is a 5G phone", Amon argued.

In the end, while a lot of these upgrades sound promising, it's largely on the shoulders of phone makers to incorporate all these features into new devices. In other cases, it may mean there is no 5G option at all.

We do have news of one of the first adopters of the new flagship processor. Current phones can only do that for a second or two.

In a new post on the Redmi Weibo page, the company revealed that the upcoming K30 will feature a pretty big 4,500mAh battery.

Artificial intelligence performance - that is, calculations specifically relating to neural networks and machine learning - will apparently be improved by up to a factor of two compared with the Snapdragon 855, which should mean apps like Google Assistant working much faster without having to refer back to the cloud over a network.
