Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 855 chipset will be accompanied by a slew of improvements and refinements, according to the official press release. Most important is the fact that Qualcomm has announced an entirely re-designed chip called the Xiaomi Mi 9 with major advances in AI processing and camera technologies. It’ll also feature its own high-spec system on a chip dubbed “QET.” (The Snapdragon 875 was supposed to be renamed Qualcomm has just released the Snapdragon 888, ditching the alleged Snapdragon 875 name. Not much is known thus far, but we’ll learn more as Qualcomm’s Tech Summit goes on.) Read below for previous rumors regarding this processor.)
The Snapdragon 875 chip, which is expected to be released in late 2021, will power many phones. The next top-of-the-line Qualcomm phone hasn’t been announced yet, but it’s anticipated to be revealed soon. We’ve got all the details you need about the new Snapdragon 875 chipset.
The COVID-19 outage will result in the cancellation of the company’s annual technology summit, which has been held annually since 2015. Unlike previous events, this year’s tech summit will be an online-only event as a consequence of COVID-19. It will begin on December 1 and conclude on December 2. The Snapdragon 700 series processor,
The Snapdragon 875, on the other hand, will be a 5nm processor with a 1+3+4 core design and is expected to use ARM’s Cortex X1 as its primary core. The Cortex X1 core will outperform the Cortex A77 by 30% in terms of performance and the cortex A78 by 23%. However, this core’s machine learning capabilities will be twice as great as the cortex A78.’
The new chipset may also include the Snapdragon X60 5G modem, although if it is, it will be an embedded one. This time around, Samsung has been assigned production of all Snapdragon 875 chips from Qualcomm.
Qualcomm’s processors have dominated the Android smartphone market since its inception. With the Snapdragon 765G in 2020, Qualcomm will extend its dominance beneath the flagship level, according to projections. While Qualcomm is prolific, Apple and Huawei beat them to the 5nm punch. The Snapdragon 875 is expected to close that gap.
There’s still a lot we don’t know about Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 875 processor, but we’ve got all the major rumors on the next flagship SoC right here. Continue reading for all you need to know about its release date, specs, and which smartphones it’ll appear on.
When will the Snapdragon 875 be available?
Qualcomm’s next flagship processor is expected to be revealed at the start of December, with devices based on it available in early 2021.
An invitation to Qualcomm’s Tech Summit Digital 2020 event on December 1-2 has given us a deadline of December 16 for the Snapdragon 875’s reveal. The Snapdragon 875 isn’t confirmed by this invite, but the news is anticipated.
When it comes to the release date, though, things are a little more up in the air. While there’s a good chance that Apple won’t launch the next-generation iPhone until early 2021, when Samsung, Xiaomi, and other major smartphone brands may include the new flagship processor in their own flagships smartphones.
Specifications for the Snapdragon 875 mobile platform
The next-generation Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 processor has been detailed further in a fresh leak from Digital Chat Station (via MyFixGuide). The new 5nm flagship chip is anticipated to include eight cores, with the main core running at 2.84GHz (Cortex-X1) and three performance cores at 2.42GHz (Cortex-A78), and four energy-saving cores operating at 1.8GHz (Cortex-A55). The current flagship Snapdragon 865 chip’s core configuration remains the same, although efficiency gains are expected as a result of the new 5nm manufacturing process.
The camera hardware is expected to be upgraded with a Snapdragon X60 5G modem and an Adreno 660 GPU, as well as an improved cache.
Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 875 performance, which was expected to deliver a larger boost than previously believed, may have fallen short of Samsung’s next Exynos 1000 chip.
The new 5nm chip’s newest performance statistics have been leaked by leaker yabhishekhd on Twitter, revealing that the Snapdragon 875 outperforms its predecessor by more than 25%.
8,47,868 Snapdragon 865+ Benchmark Score 6,29,245 Versus Benchmark Score 5,32,974.
On the same Antutu benchmark, the score surpasses leaked scores for Samsung’s Exynos 1080 processor and Huawei’s current flagship Kirin 9000 – both of which had less than 700,000 points.
Snapdragon 875 phones
The Samsung Galaxy S21 line is expected to have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8150, while the Xiaomi Mi 11 and Redmi K40 Pro will have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 7nm processor.
Qualcomm is also planning to release an updated version of its ROG gaming phone series, according to SlashGear.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 processor will be the first to arrive in early 2021, as expected. The Snapdragon 875 chip will be used in the following flagships from Sony, OnePlus, and Oppo, based on recent trends – with only a prospect of an 875+ processor later in 2021 changing things up.
