At the ongoing Snapdragon Tech Summit, Qualcomm has announced the new Snapdragon 765 chipset - a high-end 5G-ready SoC.

Snapdragon 865 features are primary focused on expanding 5G speeds, doubling down on gaming performance, and improving photo and video quality on the many, many cameras employed by smartphones these days. While the headline features of 5G, swifter CPU and GPU speeds, and higher resolution camera sensor support are likely to get the most attention, it could be the Hexagon co-processor that's more useful day to day.

In addition to unveiling the flagship Snapdragon 865, Qualcomm has also taken the opportunity to announce another set of new products at the Snapdragon Tech Summit 2019 in Hawaii earlier today. The company also provided the specs of its Snapdragon 765 and 765G platforms, which integrate 5G, a next-gen artificial intelligence engine and new camera capabilities.

With 2019 nearly over, we don't have any significant smartphone announcements left, as most vendors release new products in time for the busy holiday shopping season that starts in early November, several weeks ahead of Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Verizon has launched high-speed millimeter wave 5G in parts of 18 cities - expanding to 30 by year end. The Snapdragon 865 was referred to as "the beast" with 15 TOPS AI performance.

The Snapdragon 865 is created to be paired with a separate X55 cellular modem, which can deliver up to 7.5 gigabits per second download speeds.

At Qualcomm's recent analyst meeting, Qualcomm projected that 5G adoption would be faster than 4G due to China commercialization and the availability of chipsets that will work across the 5G technologies and spectrums.

The 855 also promises a billion shades of colour, will offer desktop gaming features on mobile, and can handle 15 trillion operations per second (TOPs) which it claims is two times more than the 855 that launched a year ago, and three times more than its Android competitors.
