The Snapdragon 875 SoC may be unveiled on December 1st. The insider Roland Quandt said Qualcomm has sent an invitation to the media for an occasion set up for the first day of December.
Given that the Snapdragon 865 was unveiled in early December; it is likely that Qualcomm is using the December event this year to reveal a new flagship SoC.
There is no specific information about it yet, but it needs to be produced utilizing the 5 nm process technology. In regards to set up, the Snapdragon 875 is expected to consist of one Cortex-X1 core, 3 Cortex-A78 cores and four Cortex-A55 cores.
Samsung Won Almost All Orders Of Approaching Snapdragon 875
It was formerly reported that Samsung Electronics won a KRW 1 trillion ($849 million) order for the production of next-generation 5G high-end smart device mobile application processors for Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 875. They could win such a large order primarily because they improved the 5nm procedure and the yield rate was too low.
According to the most recent news, the code name of the Snapdragon 875 is Lahaina. There is likewise the code name of Lahaina+. This may be the Snapdragon 875+, which is also in line with Qualcomm’s technique. We imply the previous Snapdragon 865 and Snapdragon 865+ are based on this concept.
In addition to the two designs exposed, there is also a Snapdragon 875G model outflow. As for whether it is the renamed Snapdragon 875+, we can’t claim at present. However, one thing is clear –– all Snapdragon-875 chips are likely to be mass-produced by Samsung. After all, Qualcomm and Samsung have reached an arrangement of $850 million.
Snapdragon 875G –– A New Chip?
Some sources said that the Snapdragon 875G is really most likely to be the SD875 Plus. Compared to the previous routine (the Plus version somewhat increases the CPU and GPU clock speeds compared to the regular version, resulting in a small performance enhancement), the upgrade rate will be even greater. There is every reason to believe Qualcomm might begin launching special versions of its flagship chips focusing on video gaming.
Samsung has actually started mass production of the SD875 on the production line in South Korea using EUV equipment. It will utilize the very same TSMC’s 5nm procedure to produce the Apple A14 and the Huawei Kirin 9000.
In addition to the Snapdragon-875 processor, Samsung’s 5nm process assembly line will also contract the Snapdragon X60 modem and Exynos 1000.
The Snapdragon-875 might present the combination of Cortex-X1 very core and Cortex-A78 core for the very first time. The freshly developed X1 core has 30% and 23% higher energy efficiency than the A77 and the A78, respectively. And its machine learning ability is also higher than that of the A78. We expect it to incorporate 5G baseband on Qualcomm’s flagship platform for the very first time, stating bye-bye to plug-ins.
