As usual by the Qualcomm, a new generation of core mobile platforms will be launched before the end of the year, to be used in next year’s Android phones.
Earlier, it was revealed that Qualcomm is developing an SM8450 chipset, which will be the successor to the Snapdragon 888, codenamed Waipio and tentatively named Snapdragon 895.
According to the well-known Ice Universe, Qualcomm’s upcoming FlagShip SoC will be called the Snapdragon 898, and as we approach the end of 2021, more details are starting to emerge.
The Snapdragon 898 uses the 4nm process of Samsung for the CPU based on the new Cortex-v9 Kryo 780, featuring large Cortex-X2 cores and clocked at up to 3.09 GHz. In addition to the large X2 core, the Snapdragon 898 CPU can also have three Cortex-A710 + two Cortex A510 composites (high frequency) + two Cortex-A510 (low frequency).
Here’s a question, Qualcomm for the past two years has been using the 1+3+4 architecture, although previous rumors point to 1+3+2+2, the authenticity has yet to be verified.
Ice Universe claims to have seen these clock frequencies, suggesting that the Snapdragon 898 may have been tested on a smartphone prototype to see how high the CPU clock can go so Qualcomm knows how far it can go without it. temperatures reach high levels.
There is also news that Qualcomm may change the Plus version plan which is generally released in the second half of the year, it will not only increase the CPU frequency, but maybe it will convert to the TSMC 4nm process.
Qualcomm may officially launch the Snapdragon 898 chipset in December, and the first smartphone with this SoC is also scheduled to debut in 2021.
