Qualcomm has announced a new refreshed version of its flagship mobile platform, Snapdragon 855. The refreshed version of this processor will be called as the Snapdragon 855 Plus which will be optimized for gaming, VR, AI, and 5G connectivity. The design of the Snapdragon 855 Plus will be same as that of its base variant, but the company said that the eight-core Kryo CPU of SD 855 Plus will be overclocked at the higher peak clock speeds of up to 2.96GHz.
The Snapdragon 855 Plus will be 15 percent more powerful than ever in terms of performance delivered from the Adreno 640 GPU. And so, the Snapdragon 855 Plus will likely to come in the next-generation Gaming smartphones from Asus, Razer, and other companies. As for AI and VR improvements, Qualcomm is continuing to talk up its fourth-generation AI Engine that’s capable of “more than 7 trillion operations per second.”
The Snapdragon 855 Plus will deliver “best-in-class cellular performance, superior coverage and all-day battery life in premium 5G devices,” according to the company. It’s still using two separate modems to get there, however, with both a Snapdragon X24 LTE 4G modem and Qualcomm’s X50 5G modem onboard.
As of now, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 SoC is the most powerful mobile platform available in the market. This SoC is powering some high-end devices like Samsung Galaxy S10, OnePlus 7 Pro, LG G8, and many others. However, with the launch of this Plus version of SD 855, this will make the coming smartphone most powerful than ever. As for its availability, Qualcomm says that this new chip will debut in consumer devices during the second half of this year.
