Qualcomm is said to be preparing to unveil its next flagship chip for smartphones, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 898. The announcement is expected to be made at the beginning of the next month. According to a recent Weibo tweet by tipster Digital Chat Station, Xiaomi will release the first smartphone featuring a Snapdragon 898 SoC.
It’s not shocking, but what may surprise you is that Motorola will also release a phone powered by the Snapdragon 898 CPU. The device’s name has yet to be revealed. The tipster, on the other hand, predicts that it will be released at the end of this year.
According to recent reports, the Xiaomi 12 will be available by the end of the year. As a result, it will almost certainly be the first phone to receive Qualcomm’s next flagship chip. Other members of the Xiaomi 12 family, including the Xiaomi 12 Pro and Xiaomi 12 Ultra, are expected to debut early next year.
An image of an unknown phone powered by the Snapdragon 898 SoC was recently posted on the internet. It was discovered that the new processor is code-named “SM8450,” and that it will apparently be known as the Snapdragon 898 SoC. The latest Qualcomm chip, according to the leaked image, has a prime core Cortex-X2 running at 3.0 GHz. It contains three Cortex-A710 cores running at 2.5 GHz and four Cortex-A510 cores running at 1.79 GHz.
