Nevertheless, Qualcomm has stated that the 3D Sonic Sensor will appear on new devices within the first half of 2019. The report from late November says the phone will feature the Snapdragon 8150, which was a rumored codename for the chipset we now know to be the Snapdragon 855. The name and initial details were unveiled during the company's annual "Tech Summit" in Hawaii, where it's taking a full week to unveil its upcoming plans for mobile computing and networks.
In fact, early Tuesday Samsung and AT&T announced the first 5G Samsung phone will be available on the carrier in the spring of 2019, or around the time that Samsung typically releases new Galaxy S models.
But the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 doesn't just bring the usual speed and efficiency improvements.

The chip will contain "the world's first computer vision ISP". The updated engine should deliver a 3x performance boost in artificial intelligence features over what we saw with the Snapdragon 845 now found in many Android flagship devices.
