It seems like now the company is working on the next chipset, which is expected to be the overclocked version of its latest chipset. It would be named “Snapdragon 888+”, as happened in the past.
The famous Chinese leakster @Digital Chat Station has revealed that the all-new Snapdragon 888+ chipset is scheduled to launch in the second half of 2021. Maybe, the chipset would be launched in June or July.
He also mentioned that Qualcomm had written the highest frequency (of Snapdragon 888) to 840MHz to prevent manufacturers from secretly overclocking.
The current flagship chipset “Snapdragon 888 5G” consists of eight cores: 1x Cortex-X1 Super (@2.84GHz), 3x Cortex-A78 Performance Core (@2.42GHz), 4x Cortex-A55 Energy Efficient Cores (@1.8GHz). It is expected that the highest frequency will be increased to 3.1GHz.
In the Snapdragon 865 series, the highest frequency was increased from 2.84GHz to 3.1GHz in SD 865+. The same thing is expected, this year too.
Currently, the new Snapdragon 888+ is expected in the mid of 2021.
