The Snapdragon 865 Plus is Qualcomm’s latest flagship processor. The San Diego-based is expected to announce a Snapdragon 875 processor at the end of the year which will power the flagships of 2021. Now, a new leak says we may be getting a new Snapdragon 800 series chipset but one that should be less powerful than the Snapdragon 865.
According to a post on Weibo by Digital Chat Station, details from an OPPO meeting included the mention of a new processor called the Snapdragon 860. He adds that the chipset should be a lite version of the Snapdragon 875 (or Snapdragon 875G?).
We don’t have enough details on this new chipset yet but if it is already being discussed by manufacturers, then it is most likely on the way.
We believe the launch of the Snapdragon 860 will bring chaos to the Snapdragon 800 series. Only a handful of manufacturers launch phones with the previous year’s chipsets. So adding a Snapdragon 860 to the mix will mean having to choose between it, the Snapdragon 865, and the Snapdragon 865 Plus.
