As expected the data speed of the mobile phone will be increased. This makes the device’s speed even faster than the older version of LTE modem.

Qualcomm said that it will make use of the mmWave. By using mmWave the speed will increase by 20x faster than the current version of internet. But you’ll be able to see them in a 5G modem and that’ll take some real time to be effective. But if you’ve not heard about the 5G connection, you can check it out here.


Let’s now talk of the amazing long-lasting battery life of the ultimately built outrageous Snapdragon 855 chipset. The battery life would be more efficient and powerful enough to survive for a longer duration of time. CPU, GPU and DSP has completely made it to the top contender among its rivals. Using Spectra 380 ISP the battery performance has significantly increased. So we can expect the battery performance to be in the next level.

AI Features

Qualcomm has devoted an amazing AI segments to its chip. The Spectra 380 ISP brings virtual into reality and enhances the performance of the Snapdragon 855 mobile core chipset. The company has named it as first CV-ISP(Computer Vision Image Signal Processor). The three major units – CPU, GPU and DSP(Digital SIgnal Processing) altogether contributes to the AI vision effectively. Special thanks to the CV(computer vision) that endorses the Spectra 380 ISP which makes the tasks run fluently and reduces the work load of the processor. This makes the processor run even faster than ever.

Gaming Experience

Okay fine let’s get started with the gaming experience with the latest upgraded Snapdragon 855 mobile core chipset. Qualcomm has announced an Elite Gaming Experience.
