In a statement, the company's senior vice-president and general manager, mobile, Alex Katouzian said: “We are proud to stand beside our longstanding customer, Samsung Electronics, as they introduce their newest line-up of flagship devices based on our latest premium tier Snapdragon 865 Plus 5G mobile platform.
“These new devices will push the envelope in terms of performance and power efficiency to deliver the next generation of connectivity, camera, AI, and gaming experiences.”
“Samsung Electronics is committed to delivering best-in-class mobile experiences to consumers and our collaboration with Qualcomm Technologies supports that mission,” said Inkang Song, vice-president and head of technology strategy group at mobile communications business, Samsung Electronics.
Qualcomm claimed the new Galaxy line-up was designed to take advantage of the performance and efficiency improvements achieved by Snapdragon 865 Plus.
It said the upgraded Qualcomm Kryo 585 CPU would deliver up to 3.09GHz and the Qualcomm Adreno 650 GPU offered up to 10% overall performance boost compared to the Snapdragon 865, enabling superior processing power for the new Galaxy line-up.
Alongside the Snapdragon 865 Plus, the Snapdragon X55 5G Modem-RF System is claimed to be the first multi-mode modem-to-antenna 5G solution for consistent, lightning-fast speeds across the board – delivering peak speeds of up to 7.5Gbps.
"This truly global 5G solution supports all key regions and bands including mmWave and sub-6 in both TDD and FDD frequencies," the company said. "Plus, it is compatible with both NSA and SA modes along with Dynamic Spectrum Sharing, global 5G roaming and support for multi-SIM.
"The leading fifth generation Qualcomm AI Engine and new Qualcomm Sensing Hub provide more intelligence and personalisation for Galaxy users than ever before. Snapdragon 865 Plus also includes the blazing fast Qualcomm Spectra 480 ISP, which brings new features to mobile photography and videography thanks to speeds of up to 2 gigapixels per second."
Qualcomm said the Galaxy Z Fold 2 featured the latest Qualcomm FastConnect 6900 mobile connectivity system, designed to enhance Wi-Fi and Bluetooth performance.
In conjunction with 5G, Qualcomm Multi-User Traffic Management, with Uplink and Downlink Multi-User MIMO, and a four-stream Dual Band Simultaneous implementation provided Wi-Fi 6 performance suited to address the speed and latency requirements of ever-evolving applications and increasingly congested environments, it said.
Additionally, as part of the Snapdragon X55 Modem-RF System, the Galaxy Note20 featured a low-band 5G/4G power amplifier module from Qualcomm Technologies to support better network coverage globally.
