What to expect from Snapdragon Summit
A new flagship Snapdragon platform
Over the past few years Qualcomm has used Snapdragon Summit to launch its flagship Snapdragon platform – the Snapdragon 845 in 2017, the 855 in 2018 and the 865 in 2019. So we’re expecting the next-generation version to appear this time around featuring the X60 modem that would have launched at Mobile World Congress this year – if it had happened.
Other hardware advances
We’ve seen other hardware platforms from Qualcomm discussed in the past at Snapdragon Summit – the company also has PC hardware, mixed reality hardware, audio hardware and a whole lot more. Watch this space for more on those.
