Qualcomm is ready to launch a new chipset. Or at least, that’s what the company is suggesting to after sharing a new product launch invitation on December 1st. The product in question should be Qualcomm Snapdragon 875, the successor to the Snapdragon 865+ SoC.
Although there is no mention of the Snapdragon 875 SoC, but several reports indicate that this is the date on which Qualcomm announces 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.
There are also hints that Qualcomm might also launch a 6nm chipset which will be called Snapdragon 775G, 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.
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.
There are also hints that the new chipset will be faster than Apple’s A14 Bionic, and as such it will be next year’s fastest chipset. This may be partly due to the fact that the chipset would have to be manufactured using the advanced 5nm process.
There are suggestions that the chipset will be around 20% more energy efficient than the Snapdragon 865.
- The launch of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 SoC is scheduled for December 1st.
- The Snapdragon 875 SoC may be qualcomm’s fastest chipset.
- The new chipset is also expected to be more energy efficient than the 865 SoC.
