Qualcomm has just confirmed its Qualcomm Snapdragon Tech Summit 2019 event, which will take place December 3 through December 5 on the island of Maui, Hawaii. Considering previous releases of its top of the line chips, we can assume that the US company will release Snapdragon 865 between the aforementioned dates.
Looking back on previous releases, it is easier to come to this conclusion. Snapdragon 845 was announced on December 5, 2017, while Snapdragon 855 was announced on December 4, 2018.
These releases make sense at the end of each year, as the year begins with the announcement of new smartphones equipped with Qualcomm's flagship chip. This is the case for the upcoming Galaxy S11 handsets, which are due to be announced in February 2020. And of course, other models may be announced even before that.

What we know about Snapdragon 865
Qualcomm chips are used to a limited extent by Samsung, as South Korea has its own mobile chips. Basically, Sammy flagships use Snapdragon in the US, and just for the sake of patents.
In the rest of the world, Samsung's top of the line uses the proprietary Exynos chip, which has similar performance to Qualcomm's equivalent processors. For companies that don't have their own chips, Snapdragon is much more essential.
New features that may come with the next generation of Snapdragon include the 7 nm EUV (Extreme UltraViolet) manufacturing process, the optional 5G X55 modem, and the support for USF 3.0 and LPDDR5X RAM.
