Qualcomm just summarized the performance landscape for a number of 2020’s Android handsets—the firm has launched the Snapdragon 765, 865, and gaming-based 765G. They must enhance performance in sections such as 8K video capture and AI (Qualcomm will not share much more until next week), but this time around the highest-end processor is not the star. The mid-range 765 lineup shows the first SoC by Qualcomm with incorporated 5G, saving them from employing power-hungry, separate modems to take benefit of next-gen connectivity. That can expand battery life, certainly, but it must also make 5G phones more reasonably priced.
Just when handsets will launch will rely on the separate makers. It will not shock you to hear that various vendors have already verified work on machines employing the latest Snapdragons. The Mi 10 by Xiaomi and an anonymous Oppo handset will employ the Snapdragon 865 in the Q1 of next year, while Nokia will employ the Snapdragon 765 for future devices. Motorola, in the meantime, hopes to employ both the 765 and 865 in its machines.
And yes, there is good news if you loved the thought of an in-screen fingerprint scanner by Qualcomm but thought it required work. The firm has revealed a 3D next-gen Sonic Max scanner whose ultrasonic technology has a recognition region 17 times bigger as compared to earlier, allowing it to validate with two entire fingers immediately. That pledges considerably more security but also pledges quicker registration of fingerprint and fewer cases of fumbling around to hit sweet spot of the reader. You will have to wait till the next year 2020 for this too, but it can be worthy if you think present fingerprint scanner is too crude. Having said that, it is clear that next year will be great for Qualcomm and it will surely be great for users.
