Qualcomm Sd 855 is the company’s current-generation flagship chipset which powers most of the high-end flagship telephones released this year. Recently, the company launched two new upper budget chipsets — Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 and Sd 730/G.
Now, the manufacturer has reportedly started working on its next-generation flagship chipset, what is coming to be called Sd 865. The Snapdragon 855 had an internal model number SM8150 and was codenamed “Hana” and if the information are to be believed, then its successor has the model number SM8250.
The codename of the upcoming flagship chipset is said to be “Project Kona”. Kona is a name referring to the Hawaiian Islands. Interestingly, Qualcomm has been hosting a Qualcomm Technical Summit in Hawaii to unveield its high-end processors in December.
Whereas nothing much is famous about the Snapdragon 865 processor, it is said that the chipset will arrive with support for LPDDR5 RAM. The high-end cpu for Windows products Sd 8cx is still using LPDDR4X. Qualcomm already has samples of the new SM8250 internally and is testing them in conjunction with the LPDDR5 storage, leaving it open who the supplier is.
However, it’s a long time before we see anything substantially related to the next Snapdragon 865 flagship chipset from Qualcomm. So, we expect to have idea far more about this SoC in the approaching months.
Meanwhile, TSMC has announced its new 5nm process infrastructure, readying main for the Apple A14 chipset, what will be powering the Apple iPhones launching in 2020. Thus, we are Additionally expecting a Qualcomm chipset manufactured using a 5nm process.
