The US manufacturer of processors, Qualcomm, has presented the improved version of its high-end chip, the Snapdragon 855, designed specifically for cell phones gaming

The new mobile processor, the Snapdragon 855 Plus, that Qualcomm presented its processor through a statement sent to the press on July 15, is designed to work under 5G networks and give users an ultra-fast gaming experience. Asus will be the first manufacturer in the market to use this chip in its next ROG Phone II, according to the same statement.

In it, Kedar Kondap, vice president of product management at Qualcomm, says the Snapdragon 855 Plus has graphics that are 15 percent faster than the standard version of the chip and has a clock speed of up to 2.96GHz. In comparison, the Snapdragon 855 has a clock speed of 2.84GHz.

The new processor is aimed at phones gaming and other devices that take advantage of the speed and low latency benefits of 5G.

Most devices with this new chip will be released later this year. "The Snapdragon 855 Plus raise the level for lite players with the increase in CPU and GPU performance," Kedar Kondap said in the press release.

The Snapdragon 855 Plus work with the Qualcomm X50 modem to be able to connect to the new 5G networks, so the devices must have both chips to connect to this type of networks.

As we say, the Asus ROG Phone II be the first phone that integrates this chip, a phone that will be presented next July 23 and that Asus has created in collaboration with the mobile video giant, Tencent.
