As for 5G connectivity, Katouzian said the X55 modem integrated into the Snapdragon 865 will be capable of 7.5 Gbps speeds - far faster than what current 5G networks can provide. There were some big announcements on day one, yesterday, but probably the most important was the launch of the flagship Snapdragon 865 Mobile Platform.
Qualcomm has also revealed that its new chip will bring better photography to devices with it helping to shoot 8K quality. "The next generation of "Super Internet" will be an all-new model that combines 5G + AI + IoT, and Xiaomi will be at the forefront of this, developing and bringing 5G smartphones to the masses".
At Qualcomm's recent analyst meeting, Qualcomm projected that 5G adoption would be faster than 4G due to China commercialization and the availability of chipsets that will work across the 5G technologies and spectrums.

"Motorola will continue leading the 5G era with our expanded lineup of 5G solutions in 2020-driven by the high-performing Snapdragon 765 and 865 Mobile Platforms, re-invigorating our place in the premium flagship space", Motorola President Sergio Buniac said in a press release.
Oppo has also joined Qualcomm's Tech Summit to announce that it will be launching a device in the first part of 2020. Qualcomm is also promising to bring "desktop features to mobile gaming", something we're hoping to hear more about during the week. OEMs will need to design 5G phones with a separate 5G modem (the X55) that links with the 865. The image signal processor can support 192-megapixel cameras and capture 4K video. We're waiting for details on that front, which are likely to emerge this week.
Qualcomm also announced a new in-display fingerprint sensor named the 3D Sonic Max.

However, a few phone makers did announce plans to make use of Qualcomm's 5G-integrated chips.
With 2019 nearly over, we don't have any significant smartphone announcements left, as most vendors release new products in time for the busy holiday shopping season that starts in early November, several weeks ahead of Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
