Motorola, Xiaomi, Oppo Promise High-End, Snapdragon 865 Phones


There were some big announcements on day one, yesterday, but probably the most important was the launch of the flagship Snapdragon 865 Mobile Platform. It isn't clear why Qualcomm has chose to initially offer one of its less powerful SD700 series SoCs with an integrated 5G modem first.

The Snapdragon 865 is driving 5G in two ways: it'll be faster with download speeds of up to 7.5Gbps, and be found in more smartphones you actually want in 2020.

Qualcomm intends to make 5G technology ubiquitous over the next year.

Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 also includes FastConnect 6800 connectivity for Wi-Fi 6. The Snapdragon 865 will be able to support 200-megapixel cameras as well. Alex Katouzian, senior vice president and general manager, mobile at Qualcomm, also said the Snapdragon 865's ISP can capture 4K video at 64 fps, with each frame displayed at very high resolution.

Qualcomm is expected to release in depth and detailed information on both new Snapdragon mobile platforms as the event goes on.

However, he confirmed that as of now, he doesn't have any plans to take down political ads or review his policy. We must work together as a society for that steady progress.


A new Qualcomm Kryo 475 processor with speeds up to 2.3 GHz.

The Snapdragon 765 with Snapdragon X52 Modem-RF is created to offer peak downloads of 3.7 Gbps with upload speeds of 1.6 Gbps to rival many wired connections. 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 new flagship chip might not feature a built-in 5G modem, but it'll be coupled with Qualcomm's Snapdragon X55 5G Modem and RF System inside next year's phones that will support 5G connectivity. The difference between 765 amd 765G also hasn't been disclosed yet, and that "G" doesn't mean 5G, as both chips have the modem inside.

In addition to selling the computing chips and modems for mobile phones, Qualcomm has also been trying to persuade phone makers to use more of its other components, such as antenna chips for connecting to 5G networks. Besides 5G, the Snapdragon 865 also includes AI capabilities and this prompted Qualcomm to say that the chipset "is the world's most advanced, global 5G platform, created to deliver unmatched connectivity and performance for the next generation of flagship devices". Yeah, the American chipmaker has announced the much-awaited Snapdragon 865 chipset for mobile phones. Xiaomi confirmed that Xiaomi Mi 10 will be among the first phones to feature SD865.

Snapdragon 865 is Qualcomm's most powerful chipset to date.
