Yesterday, American chip maker, Qualcomm, released a poster which shows that the company has scheduled an important event for September 24th. The poster does not say anything about the event thus there is no clue of what to expect. However, netizens believe that it could be related to one of the events coming up on September 24th. Xiaomi will release the Xiaomi Mi 9 Pro 5G and Xiaomi Mi MIX Alpha on that day. In addition, Sony Xperia 5 and Realme X2 will also arrive on the same day. Some people also believe that Qualcomm will announce the Snapdragon 865 SoC.
Gizchina News of the week
The smartphones to arrive on the same day all come with a Qualcomm processor. The Xiaomi Mi 9 Pro 5G uses a Snapdragon 855+ SoC. Sony Xperia 5 comes with a Snapdragon 855b SoC while Realme X2 uses a Snapdragon 730G chip. As for the Xiaomi Mi MIX Alpha, the processor is not known for now.
Qualcomm’s “good news” should be related to one of the above three mobile phone brands. The possibility of announcing the Snapdragon 865 is very low. According to the practice of previous years, Snapdragon 865 (temporary name) is expected to debut at the end of 2019. It should eventually hit the market in the first half of 2020. All in all, we will have to wait until September 24 to see what Qualcomm has for us.
