The Snapdragon 845 successor is already in the hands of manufacturers
The Snapdragon 855 will be the company’s first mobile chip based on the 7 nm architecture and it’s expected to bring more than marginal improvements over the last generation. The smaller size boost performance and power efficiency, but there are no details about the chip’s exact parameters yet.
We do know, however, that it will be paired with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X50 5G modem, making the combo “the first 5G-capable mobile platform for premium tier smartphones”, according to the chip maker. Qualcomm sets the bar pretty high for their latest creation, saying that it will “transform industries, encourage new business models and improve consumer experience”. That also refers to the 5G capabilities, but looking at it more realistically, by the time 5G is widespread enough to transform industries, Qualcomm will probably have the Snapdragon 875 out on the market.
The new chip’s official name and specs will be revealed later this year and the first smartphones powered by it will likely hit the market early 2019.
