The Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC is the successor of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, a chipset that’s found in most of the top smartphones this year. Around the same time its predecessor was announced last year; this new chipset also gets its announcement.

Previously, several rumours were out in the open about Qualcomm’s next flagship chip being named the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8150. Later on, new reports surfaced to suggest that the new flagship will instead be Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC. Well, the later has now been confirmed by the giant tech company itself.

Based on the 7nm process technology, this chipset will function better in general performance and efficiency. In line with its general performance, it’ll also expend less battery capacity due to the 7nm process’s optimisation skills.

Compared to its older generation, the chipset will perform triple times better in Artificial Intelligence (AI) functions. For this to happen, the San Diego chip giant added the Qualcomm’s 4th-gen multi-core AI engine.

Also, fingerprint security is also improved as the chip bags the 3D sonic sensor. The sensor guarantees an ultrasonic fingerprint recognition, especially for in-display touch IDs. The positive implication of this is that more smartphones with in-display fingerprint sensors will surface next year.
