Qualcomm unveils new Snapdragon platforms

Xiaomi Oppo to use Qualcomm's newest mobile phone chips

5G continues to be the centerpiece of many companies in the mobile industry, as proven by the steady flow of news about coverage and devices.

It's no mystery why Qualcomm would produce more chipsets with built-in 5G connectivity.

Although the 865 isn't getting this combined 5G tech, Qualcomm has announced another processor called the Snapdragon 765/765G that will get this new feature. The company's president Cristiano Amon on stage at the tech summit said that he plans to add over 200 million 5G subscribers by the end of 2020.

What's interesting is that there's going to be a second 5G chipset platform: the Snapdragon 765/765G. Qualcomm is simply stating that these chips will bring "bring integrated 5G connectivity, advanced AI processing, and select Snapdragon Elite Gaming experiences". Last year, Qualcomm launched the X50 modem as part of the Snapdragon 855 platform, but the modem was a discrete component supporting the longer-range sub-6GHz bands, as well as the short-range, high-bandwidth "millimeter-wave" technology. Technical details for the chipsets are not available yet but it's the Snapdragon X55 modem that will come baked alongside the Snapdragon 865 chipset.

The Snapdragon 865 comes equipped with the Snapdragon X55 5G Modem-RF System.

Qualcomm has been teasing that it might supply Snapdragon chips with built-in 5G modems since February.

50 children killed by measles in Samoa as outbreak worsens
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said the majority of cases involved those who hadn't been vaccinated. As a result, he said, all but public utility government services will be shuttered December 5 and 6.

We won't know the features of either platform until later on this week, though we can certainly follow the direction that Qualcomm is pointing.

Then there are the Snapdragon 765 and Snapdragon 765G.

One question will be how Qualcomm treats 5G.

Qualcomm promised to bring 5G to more affordable price points back at IFA 2019 and has delivered with the Snapdragon 765 and 765G. The first of these should be with us in early 2020. In some sense, it is as much a descendant of the Snapdragon 855 as the 865 is a direct successor. The first of these handsets will likely be announced in Q1 2020 as well.

I can see ASUS or Razer releasing a new gaming smartphone powered by the Snapdragon 865 in the very near future, maybe we'll begin to hear about these new phones at CES 2020 which is only around the corner.
