Qualcomm has finally announced what appears to be the launch date for the Snapdragon 875 chipset. The company has started sending out invitations for Qualcomm Snapdragon Tech Summit Digital 2020 to be held between 1 and 2 December.
Unlike last year, when the event was held online, this year’s event will be a virtual affair with Qualcomm promising to bring news about the islands and Snapdragon to its fans and the media.
Although the invitation to Save the Date for the event does not explicitly mention the launch of the Snapdragon chipset, it is almost certain that the event will see the launch of the much anticipated mobile SoC that will power flagship phones in the coming year.
Reports in the past have indicated that this is the date Qualcomm will announce the new chipset. Speaking of the chipset, the Snapdragon 875 is considered to be Qualcomm’s fastest and most energy efficient chipset.
Rumors also suggest that the Snapdragon 875 will be Qualcomm’s first SoC to be manufactured using the advanced 5nm manufacturing process. The chipset could consist of one Cortex-X1 core, three Cortex-A78 cores and four Cortex-A55 cores and will be manufactured by Samsung. There are suggestions that the chipset will be around 20% more energy efficient than the Snapdragon 865, while it could also provide a 10% performance increase over last year’s flagship chipset.
The new chipset is also expected to be faster than Apple’s A14 Bionic and, as such, will be the fastest chipset next year. This may be partly due to the fact that the chipset would have to be manufactured using the advanced 5nm process.
Once launched, Snapdragon’s Snapdragon 875 is expected to be one of the most powerful chipsets of 2021. It will most likely be seen first on the Galaxy S30 smartphone, which is expected to launch in February next year.
Qualcomm could also launch a 6nm chipset which will be called Snapdragon 775G. This will be the successor to the Snapdragon 765G which was honestly one of the most popular SoCs this year. More information is expected to be revealed as we approach the December 1st event date.
