Qualcomm has finally announced what appears to be the launch date for the Snapdragon 875 chipset. The company has started sending out invitations for Qualcomm Snapdragon Tech Digital Summit 2020 to be held from December 1 to 2.
Unlike last year, when the event took place online, this year’s event will be a virtual affair with Qualcomm promising to bring the news of the Islands and Snapdragon to its fans and the media.
While the Save the Date invitation for the event does not explicitly mention the launch of the Snapdragon chipset, it is almost certain that the event will see the launch of the highly anticipated mobile SoC that will power flagship phones in the coming year.
Reports in the past have indicated that this is the date when Qualcomm will announce the new chipset. As for the chipset, the Snapdragon 875 is said to be Qualcomm’s fastest and most power efficient chipset.
Rumors also suggest that the Snapdragon 875 will be Qualcomm’s first SoC to be made using the advanced 5nm manufacturing process. The chipset could include one Cortex-X1 core, three Cortex-A78 cores, and four Cortex-A55 cores and would be manufactured by Samsung. There are suggestions that the chipset will be around 20% more power efficient than the Snapdragon 865, while still providing a 10% performance boost over last year’s flagship chipset.
The new chipset is also expected to be faster than Apple’s A14 Bionic, and as such the fastest chipset next year. Part of this could be because the chipset would have to be manufactured using the advanced 5nm process.
Once launched, Snapdragon’s Snapdragon 875 is expected to be one of the most powerful chipsets of 2021. It will most likely be seen first on the Galaxy S30 smartphone, which is set to launch in February of next year.
Qualcomm could also launch a 6nm chipset which will be called Snapdragon 775G. It will be the successor to the Snapdragon 765G which has honestly been one of the most popular SoCs this year. More information on this is expected to be revealed as the December 1 event date approaches.
