Qualcomm took the wraps off of its new 5G breakthrough, reaching a huge 1Gbps but they weren't done - the company has just unveiled its new Snapdragon 636 processor, too. The new Snapdragon 636 has support for extra-tall FHD+ resolution screens (2160x1080), too.

Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 636 processor is the successor to the mid-range Snapdragon 630, which is ready for Assertive Display - for increased visibility in not-so-great lighting. Adreno 509 graphics are just 10% faster than the previous-gen chip, while the Kryo 260 CPU is 40% faster.

Inside, we have up to 600Mbps LTE support, while we have Qualcomm's impressive Spectra 160 image signal processor that will provide great photo-taking abilities. Qualcomm will be shipping its new Snapdragon 636 processors out to phone makers in November.
