Are you counting on a rapid increase in computing power on Android smartphones? Unfortunately, the latest reports show that you will have to wait a little longer. At the beginning of last year, Qualcomm launched its new high-end chip, Snapdragon 855, and a few months later gave us its improved version marked with a plus. It seemed very likely that this year, after the premiere of Snapdragon 865, we will also receive Snapdragon 865+.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ is not expected to be presented this year
Even some leaks confirmed this. It was said in the network that this SoC can be found in upcoming Samsung phablets from the Galaxy Note family, Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20+ models. However, we now know that nothing like this will most likely happen. Although Qualcomm is still officially silent on the Snapdragon 865+ case, Wan Zhigiang, Meizu CMO, has just spoken about this topic. This company is a Qualcomm partner and uses its products, so it can be assumed that Zhigiang should be well informed about the further plans of the American company.
One of the bosses of the Chinese smartphone manufacturer revealed that Snapdragon 865+ will not hit the market this year. Why? It is not known, but it can be assumed that the pandemic of the new coronavirus contributed to this. And if Snapdragon 865+ does not appear on smartphones before December, then it can be assumed that its show will never take place – in 2021 we will probably see Snapdragon 875. For now, we will for further developments.
