Qualcomm is expected to announce its latest 5G chipsets at its annual Snapdragon Summit, including the next flagship, Snapdragon 875. The two-day event will take place in Hawaii, and today the San Diego-based company revealed all of the high-profile executives that will hold a keynote.
Some of the names worth noting are Lei Jun, CEO at Xiaomi, Mitsuya Kishida, President of Sony Mobile, and Kyle Kiang from OnePlus.
Traditionally, the event will be opened by Cristiano Amon, the president of Qualcomm. He will be joined on the stage by representatives of carriers as well – Nicki Palmer from Verizon, the telecom with the biggest coverage in the United States, and Naoki Tani from NTT Docomo, the leading telecom in Japan.
The presence of speakers from certain smartphone brands almost certainly means they will release smartphones with the new flagship chipset in the early months of 2020.
The new Snapdragon 875 chipset will have next-generation face recognition and AI technologies. Its implementation will be explained in detail by Clement Delangue, co-founder and CEO of Hugging Face, a neural language processing platform.
Given the challenges caused by the pandemic, all keynotes will be live-streamed on multiple platforms for everyone to follow instead of having media flock over to one event.
