New Snapdragon 875 : Everything We Know
New Snapdragon 875 is a promising SoC expected from Qualcomm. The R&D division of the technology company is currently working on the development of the new SoC, which will be in the future flagships that will dominate the world of mobile technology in 2021.
According to unconfirmed information, the new SoC, which currently bears the code name: SM8350, will be the Snapdragon 875 and as you can see Qualcomm is investing a lot on this chip development!
According to the first information so far, but not yet confirmed, the Snapdragon 875 will be Qualcomm‘s first chip, which will be based on 5nm manufacturing technology. This will be an important step for the company because it will be Qualcomm’s first SoC to be built under this process.
Also, the new high-end Snapdragon chip is said to feature the X60 5G modem (although so far it has not been decided one will be built into the chip). In addition, everything indicates that it will be based on 8 Cores Kryo 685, while it will be working with an Adreno 660 GPU. In fact, it is not excluded that the new chip supports camera sensors that their superior resolution will reach 200MP.
Qualcomm’s current top Chip is the Snapdragon 865. SoC has so far been integrated into the Samsung Galaxy S20 you are already selling and Xiaomi’s Mi 10. Qualcomm’s press release revealed more than 70 devices to be released with the Snapdragon 865.

- Snapdragon 480 improves budget 5G Phones
- ARM acquired by Nvidia for $40 billion
More specifically, Qualcomm’s new SoC will integrate companies such as Samsung, Xiaomi, Sony, ZTE, Asus, Black Shark, Redmi, Realme and others into their smartphones.
Snapdragon 865 SoC includes octa-core CPU with a Kryo 585 core (based on ARM Cortex-A77 architecture) clocked at up to 2.84GHz, 3x Kryo 585 cores at 2.4GHz and 4x Kryo 385 cores (based on ARM Cortex-A55 architecture) at 1.8GHz.
From this provision we expect performance 25% higher than the previous generation (or 25% better energy behavior). Note that for the first time it also supports LPDDR5 memories.
