US chipmaker Qualcomm traditionally announce its next-gen flagship smartphone processor in December. This year isn’t likely going to be an exception as the company is expected to announce the Snapdragon 875 chipset on December 1.
Already, a few details of the Snapdragon 875 is out in the open and more keeps coming. Noted Chinese tipster Digital Chat Station recently reeled out the models that will likely be among the first set that would be launched with the SD 875 chip. The tipster did mention Xiaomi, Black Shark, OPPO, Vivo, OnePlus models, among others.
Digital Chat Station has once again disclosed that five models will be launched with the new chip in Q1 2021. He also disclosed that the device will arrive with support for 100W fast charging thanks to the latest Quick Charge 5.
While he left off the names of the models, we can guess the Galaxy S21 will be among them. The OnePlus 9 Pro and Xiaomi Mi 11 are also expected to make the cut for release in Q1 2021. All three models have at different times hopped on the database of GeekBench.
The Snapdragon 875 will come with support for 100W fast charging and that may have prompted the rumour by the tipster that all the five models for release in Q1 will have support for 100W charging. The latest leaks suggest that Samsung will stick with 45W for the S21 Ultra, OnePlus and Xiaomi will probably want to promote their own charging solutions as well.
Whether the rumour turns out to be true or not, it is exciting to look forward to what the new Cortex-X1 core can do. The core allegedly promises 20% higher sustained performance than the Cortex-A78. The Snapdragon 875 and the Exynos 2100 will be the first chips to use the X1 core.
