Qualcomm, one of the leading manufacturers of processors and chips for technology devices, could launch its new flagship model, the Snapdragon 898, al Tech Summit 2021. The event this year will be held from November 30 to December 2 and is traditionally the time when the company presents the innovations that will be adopted by its partners the following year.

Qualcomm: is the Snapdragon 898 coming?

According to a recent report from Android Central, the first phone to use the processor should be Xiaomi 12, which will be launched later this year. The Snapdragon 898 is expected on other reference smartphones, such as the Galaxy S22 series, whose presentation should take place in early February, and Motorola’s top-of-the-range at Realme.

Another indiscretion, this time from Gsm Arena, would confirm that it has analyzed the technical specifications of the 898, thanks to the sharing of information on an alleged smartphone with the chipset Qualcomm SM8450, known just as Snapdragon 898.

So a heart is expected CPU AMR Cortex-X2 funzionante a 3,0 GHz, three cores based on Cortex-A710 clocked at 2.5 GHz and finally four high-efficiency cores, Cortex-A510 at 1.79 GHz. An Adreno 730 GPU should not be missing, which among the architectural improvements and the new Samsung’s 4-nanometer manufacturing process, would offer 20% higher performance than the previous generation.

It will not miss the modem’s X65 5G connectivity, with a theoretical maximum speed of 10 Gbps. No official confirmation from Qualcomm, which limited itself to launching a banner on its website on the launch date of the Tech Summit. In the background, a boat that draws the infinity symbol which, seen vertically, represents an ‘8’, an element that according to many could be a clue.
