Are Chinese language OEMs already testing Snapdragon’s subsequent flagship processor?

Rumors about the successor to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor are increasing again. This time it comes from the Digital Chat Station. He suggests that several top Chinese smartphone companies are already testing the new 4nm Qualcomm Snapdragon chipsets.

According to the latest information from Digital Chat Station, Chinese OEMs are already receiving chip samples of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor, which is equipped with a 4 nm architecture. He also reveals that the new processor has made advances that dwarf the jump between the Snapdragon 865 and Qualcomm Snapdragon 888.

Previous details about the Snapdragon 888 successor were revealed thanks to the well-known speaker Evan Blass. He revealed that “the SM8450 is Qualcomm’s next-generation premium system-on-chip (SoC). It has an integrated Snapdragon X65 5G modem RF system. It’s made in a 4 nm process. ”He also mentioned the key components of the chip, including a Kryo 780 CPU based on ARM Cortex v9 technology, an Adreno 730 GPU, the Adreno 665 video processing unit , the Adreno 1195 Display Processing Unit and more. In addition, the new Qualcomm X65 5G model will achieve speeds of up to 10 Gbps, outperforming the Qualcomm X60 5G model at 7.5 Gbps.

It is also rumored that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 successor has already made a name for itself at Geekbench, where it achieved a single-core score of 1171 and a multi-core score of 3,704. Now this test was uploaded on May 27th and also shows that the processor worked on a device with only 6GB of RAM on Android 11, which means we can expect better results in the future as most Android flagships are usually 8GB RAM under the hood, some with up to 16GB of RAM.

Keep in mind that Qualcomm usually announces its flagship chipset in December, followed by a Plus variant in the second half of the year. Since we’re already in June, we will most likely see more leaks and rumors about the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 successor, so stay tuned for the next few weeks for more details.
