Qualcomm flew out hundreds of tech press, influencers and YouTubers out to its annual Snapdragon Summit in the beautiful Maui, Hawaii -- introducing the world to a bunch of new mobile technology that will debut in 2020 and beyond. This includes new Snapdragon processors for smartphones and tablets, as well as new Snapdragon compute platforms for the future of mobile devices.

The company is also making big strides into the world of desktop gaming, thanks to the new Snapdragon 865 and its beefed-up Adreno 650 GPU that powers new 144Hz mobile displays -- yeah, 144FPS on a smartphone, kinda crazy isn't it? I'll dive more into that later in this article.

Qualcomm unveiled the new Snapdragon 765 and Snapdragon 765G which offer 5G up for future mainstream smartphones, while pushing a laser-focused aim into the gaming world with updateable GPU drivers on the new Adreno GPUs and Snapdragon SoCs. This delivers PC-level quality and features, all in the palm of your hand.

Here are a few photos from my journey to Maui, Hawaii for the Snapdragon Summit -- before we get into the real nitty gritty. I snapped all of these photos on my personal Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ 5G smartphone, and didn't apply any filters or do any post processing on the photos.
