In the past few years, Qualcomm has held a snapdragon technology summit in Maui Island, Hawaii, every December, to release the next generation snapdragon chip and reveal the power engines of most of Android's flagship in the next year.This year's summit is of special significance. The two mobile platforms Xiaolong 865 and 765 released this year will play an important role in truly pushing the world into the 5g era.
In the process of entering the 5G era in the world, Qualcomm will act as the core technology platform. Alex Katuzan (Alex Katouzian), senior vice president and general manager of mobile business at Qualcomm, subsequently unveiled two mobile platforms, the flagship Snapdragon 865 and Cron765. Among them, the flagship Cellong 865 mobile platform and Snapdragon X55 modem and RF system are the world's leading 5G platforms that can support 5G deployment in the world; they will also promote the further integration of 5G and artificial intelligence, leading to powerful photo and game experience upgrades. Cellon 765 / 765G mobile platform integrates 5G baseband chip, which has obvious improvement in AI operation performance and Elite game performance. The specific performance of Snapdragon 865 and 765 platforms will be explained in detail at the next day's meeting.
Xiaolong modular platform is also a core product of today's summit keynote speech. Katuzen announced the launch of the first series of modules based on mobile platforms - Xiaolong 865 and 765 modular platforms. Based on the end-to-end strategy, the above modular platform is designed to provide the industry with the tools needed to easily realize 5g large-scale deployment, help customers reduce development costs, and more quickly launch smart phones and Internet of things terminals with new industrial design. Verizon and Vodafone are among the first operators to announce support for the snapdragon modular platform certification program, and more operators are expected to join the program in 2020.
After katuzen released the two mobile platforms, i.e. Xiaolong 865 and 765, the leaders of Motorola, Xiaomi, oppo and HMD (Nokia brand) came to the stage successively, announcing that their upcoming flagship and mid-range mobile phones will adopt Qualcomm's latest processor products, demonstrating their close cooperation with Gaotong.
Lin bin, vice chairman of Xiaomi, said that Qualcomm was Xiaomi's early investor and the most important partner. In the past eight years, Xiaomi has shipped 427 million Qualcomm chip mobile phones, and each generation of flagship mobile phones uses Qualcomm's top chips. Next year's Xiaomi 10 will also build the Xiaolong 865 just released today. Xiaomi will launch at least 10 5g smart phones next year, covering the middle and high-end fields.
Wu Qiang, global sales president of oppo, said that oppo will release its flagship mobile phone based on the Xiaolong 865 platform in the first quarter of next year, while this month it will release the oppo Reno 3 Pro based on the Xiaolong 765 platform. Motorola and HMD executives also said that their 2020 product layout will rely more on the Xiaolong 765 platform to provide 5g mid-range phones with more applicable prices.
In addition, katuzen also released a new Qualcomm 3D ultrasonic fingerprint recognition technology, 3D sonic max. The recognition area is 17 times of the previous one, and there is no need to identify fingerprints in a small area anymore; at the same time, the recognition accuracy is increased by 20 times, and the dual fingerprint unlocking is supported. This 3D acoustic fingerprint recognition technology greatly improves the unlocking speed and security.
