The Snapdragon 845’s successor is coming soon.
Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 processor is at the heart of most flagship smartphones that have been released this year, and thanks to ultra-fast performance, improved image processing, and much more, is one of the best mobile chips we’ve ever seen from the company. Now, Qualcomm says OEMs have already begun sampling the 845’s successor.
In a press released that was published this morning, Qualcomm said:
The 7nm SoC can be paired with the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ X50 5G modem, creating the first 5G-capable mobile platform for premium tier smartphones and other mobile devices. Qualcomm Technologies has begun sampling of its upcoming flagship mobile platform to multiple OEMs developing next-generation consumer devices.
Aside from the fact that the new chipset is just 7nm and is capable of 5G network speeds, nothing else is known about it quite yet.
In regards to availability, Qualcomm goes on to note that:
The upcoming platform will transform industries, encourage new business models and improve the consumer experience as operators come online with 5G services later in 2018 and through 2019.
Furthermore, Qualcomm also says that the next-gen platform will be formally announced during Q4 of this year.
