Apart from Huawei, Samsung is expected to release a similar device that's going to be called the Galaxy A8s. Following that debut, the new Android flagships should hit the market by late March after a brief pre-order period which will likely see more incentives than what Samsung has been offering previous year seeing how the Galaxy S9 line ended up having relatively underwhelming sales.
Per WinFuture, it was TechCrunch that has mistakenly published some information about the Snapdragon 855 ahead of time. And now, it is unofficially official that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Mobile Solution is the next flagship SoC from Qualcomm, which will power the majority of the flagship smartphones of 2018.
A full list of Snapdragon 855 specs will be announced today at Qualcomm's reveal event. That's hardly a surprising revelation, considering that Qualcomm already announced that various Android phones next year will feature 5G support, thanks to its Snapdragon X50 5G modem.
It's not yet clear if this is sufficient to beat Google, Huawei, and Apple's latest ML accelerators, as Qualcomm's Hexagon processor used to be quite behind in terms of ML performance not too long ago. Furthermore, Samsung's Exynos 9820 also comes with an NPU of its own.

Google wants to officially ditch Hangouts for RCS messaging in 2020
Indeed his primary frustration appears to be the idea that users might think that Google is giving up on messaging, period. Google is no stranger to killing off services, and it seems that one of its next victims could be Hangouts.
The four 1.8 GHz low-key cores will be dealing with mundane tasks, while the three 2.4 GHz ones are for the heavy lifting, and one of those can go as high up as 2.8 GHz - for bragging rights, we suppose.
Other features for the Snapdragon 855 mobile platform include the company's latest generation of "3D Sonic Sensor", which would allow smartphone and notebook makers to embedded fingerprint sensors beneath the devices' screens, freeing manufacturers to also create devices with "edge-to-edge" screens (at least those which have been unwilling to put the fingerprint readers on the back of smartphones). The Snapdragon 855 is the first chipset from Qualcomm with a dedicated Neural Processing Unit (NPU), which will help in AI computations. Without 5G, the 855 is just another process shrink (rumors peg this as Qualcomm's first 7nm chipset), which is no small achievement (PUN!), but not much of a compelling marketing story. There's a new concept video which imagines what the Galaxy S10 display hole would feel like during use.
The tech companies made the announcement online on Monday, December 3, United States time, as they prepare to reveal a proof of concept for the upcoming device later this week at the Qualcomm Snapdragon Technology Summit in Hawaii.
