INTRO: Qualcomm announced Snapdragon 855+ chipset in July last year. Going by a recent post of popular leakster Ice Universe, the corporate would announce the Snapdragon 865+ next month.
Ice Universe took to Chinese microblogging platform Weibo to share the knowledge. The tipster is typically accurate with leaks and hence, we could expect the chipmaker to refresh its flagship mobile chipset in July.
Earlier this February, tipster Digital Chat Station claimed that Qualcomm would unveil Snapdragon 865+ within the third quarter of this year. Given Snapdragon 855+’s launch timeframe, that wasn’t quite a revelation.
However, things took a turn when a MyDrivers report quoting Meizu’s Chief Marketing Officer Wan Zhiqiang claimed that Qualcomm would skip Snapdragon 865+ this year.
This latest rumor would come as a relief for anyone who is getting to purchase a high-end Android smartphone within the second wave of flagship device launches for this year since they might probably be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865+ chipset under the hood.
Just like last year’s Snapdragon 855+, one shouldn’t expect major changes or a big jump from Snapdragon 865 to 865+. It’s within the air that the clock speed of Snapdragon 865+ could go up to three .09GHz. as compared, Snapdragon 865’s Cortex A77 hits a maximum of two .84GHz.
While we don’t have the precise list of devices that will launch with Snapdragon 865+, we could expect Asus’ upcoming ROG Phone 3 to be one among the primary phones to launch with the new chipset. just in case you didn’t know already, ROG Phone 2 was the primary phone to flaunt Snapdragon 855+. Moreover, ROG Phone 3 is additionally rumored to launch in July. you would possibly call it a coincidence, but I feel not.
