For Android fans, arguably the most exciting announcement expected from the summit is the big reveal of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 successor.

Rumored to be called either the Snapdragon 855 or Snapdragon 8150, we already know the SoC will feature an octa-core design, be built on an 7nm process node, and support pairing with Qualcomm’s X50 5G modem. It is also expected to have a Neural Processing Unit (NPU) on board to take on the AI capabilities of the Kirin 980.

Qualcomm is also teasing news relating to the next step for Always Connected PCs, as well as “several industry milestones” for 5G — although don’t go in expecting to see any finalized 5G phones just yet.
