So, the Snapdragon 865 will include the Snapdragon X55 5G modem, the second-generation 5G modem that was announced earlier in the year.

These are the latest and most powerful Snapdragon mobile platforms to come from the company.

Qualcomm was so eager to talk about new Snapdragon chips, 5G, mixed reality, and more, it brought SlashGear - along with several hundred other media - to Hawaii to do so.

Next year Xiaomi will be releasing more than 10 5G flagship smartphone models.

At Qualcomm's recent analyst meeting, Qualcomm projected that 5G adoption would be faster than 4G due to China commercialization and the availability of chipsets that will work across the 5G technologies and spectrums.

Full details about speeds and comparisons will be revealed tomorrow, Tuesday December 4, but we can fully expect the 865 to bring vastly improved performance along with far better battery life.

The first day of Qualcomm's annual Snapdragon Tech Summit is often the teaser day: a slow entry into the rest of the event where the technical aspects of the announcements are disclosed.

If the Snapdragon 865 is the expected news, then the Snapdragon 765 is the wildcard of the week. While we'll have to wait a few more months for Samsung to announce the Galaxy S11 series, we do have one certain thing.

Qualcomm Snapdragon Elite Gaming features for what the company claims is desktop gaming quality. The X52 modem in the Snapdragon 765, for example, supports 3.7 Gbps speeds, though like the X55 modem, it's capable of supporting 5G networks built on both millimeter wave and low-band spectrum.

Qualcomm typically doesn't detail which phones will run on its new chips, leaving those announcements to partners. Along with this, we today also got a new Snapdragon 765 chipset series, which is the company's first chipset with an integrated 5G modem. The Snapdragon 865 AI Engine includes a new Qualcomm Hexagon Tensor accelerator that's twice as fast relative to its predecessor.
