    it sounds very impressive, and no doubts that it is, but with next year's 5G modems coming ill wait this round out until the 855 comes, with 5G

    I would not read much into the reference phone they built. It will only be made available in tiny numbers to hardware partners, and end user's won't be able to buy one.

    I am actually surprised that it was phone shaped. I would have expected a bare circuit board with the display, battery and hardware buttons hanging on the end of ribbon cables, similar to a Samsung Exynos dev board:

    Would make sense if the new chip is bump compatible with the predecessor.

    Yep, next year's platform is the one to have: 5G, Wifi 11ax - new standard, 7nm process - low power, ARM new uArch cores will be used and they promise big upgrades.

    A 5G chip and WiFi .ax aren't much use without infrastructure that supports them. Is anywhere close to rolling out a 5G network? Has a standard even been agreed yet?

    I know .ax has had several drafts that have yet to be agreed as a formal standard yet and the earliest that'll happen will be the summer (and it's not guaranteed it'll pass then either,) so can't see compliant routers anytime soon.

    I just hope we avoid the unholy mess of "draft" routers we got with N.

    Wireless is useless without the corresponding infrastructure to connect to.....how long are we from that?

    Lower power CPU? Not something I care about, my top battery drainers are: Mobile network standby and Screen - neither would be reduced by this chip.

    Just another minor improvement over last years, yet we will get told how life changing the new model will be.
