Xiaomi Oppo to use Qualcomm's newest mobile phone chips

Xiaomi confirms the Mi 10 will have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865

Alongside the new SoCs, Qualcomm has also announced a new 3D Sonic Max fingerprint scanner that promises to offer better performance with improved security.

The key point about the Snapdragon 765 is affordability: this platform is created to bring 5G to those who don't want to pay big money for the latest flagship devices. Qualcomm has designed these chips to be "global" and support as much of the current and future 5G infrastructure as possible.

Chinese brand Xiaomi embraced the Snapdragon 865's 200-megapixel capacity at the event, announcing that its Mi 10 device for 2020 will use the 865 chip.

It might be only next year when we'll get to see the 5G-riddled portfolio that Nokia has been talking about. Last year, Qualcomm launched the X50 modem as part of the Snapdragon 855 platform, but the modem was a discrete component supporting the longer-range sub-6GHz bands, as well as the short-range, high-bandwidth "millimeter-wave" technology. "With technologies like dynamic spectrum sharing, you can make use of available spectrum to deploy 5G services".

Earlier today, Qualcomm stated that the Snapdragon 865 is equipped with X55 5G baseband. This Snapdragon 865 processor will power next-generation flagship phones of 2020. Also equipped with an CV-ISP that comes with hardware accelerated computer vision capabilities, these chips are also apparently able to support camera with resolutions of up to 192MP while having enough firepower to capture 4K60 HDR+ videos.

Speaking at a roundtable during the Snapdragon Tech Summit, Qualcomm President Cristiano Amon laid out the reasons why the Snapdragon 865 relies on the Snapdragon X55 external modem for its 4G and 5G connectivity. Right now, Snapdragon 855 phones can capture 4K60 HDR video in theory, but in practice, many phonemakers have simply disabled these features. However, not a lot of details were shared on the first day of the company's Tech Summit 2019. But considering what happened with its predecessors, the new processor will likely power the OnePlus 8 and Pixel 5 phones of next year, as well as plenty of other high-end handsets. The difference between 765 amd 765G also hasn't been disclosed yet, and that "G" doesn't mean 5G, as both chips have the modem inside.
