Yesterday was an exciting day since it was an Apple launch event. The tech giant introduced its new Apple Watch and the new iPads. However, at the event, they also introduced their most powerful mobile chipset: A14 Bionic. The new chipset will be first used on the iPad Air. Then will be powering the iPhone 12 series which is expected to get announced next month. So what is the response of Qualcomm? Well, Chinese companies like Xiaomi and Realme has started teasing the Snapdragon 875.
As you all know, Qualcomm launched the Snapdragon 865 Plus a few months ago. It was a slight step-up from the existing Snapdragon 865. However, we all know that Snapdragon 865 Plus is not the Qualcomm’s true response for Apple A14 Bionic. Since Snapdragon 865 Plus is based on a 7nm process. Whereas, Apple A14 Bionic is the first mobile 5nm chipset.
Xiaomi and Realme teases 5nm process processors
Meaning a 5nm Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset is what we are looking forward to. And that is what the Snapdragon 875 will deliver. Just after the event, the Xiaomi Redmi and Realme officials teased their products with 5nm chipsets. First, the Redmi GM Lu Weibeing commented on the world’s first tablet with a 5nm chipset. He said, “Are you looking forward to new products based on 5nm process processors?”
Whereas the second teaser comes from Realme official saying “? Series will be equipped with 5nm flagship core” he showed two series names below as-well including Realme X and Realme V series. Now this gives a pretty good idea that we are not far away from getting a flagship-level chipset for Android that comes with a 5nm process.
Redmi K40 Pro might be coming with Snapdragon 875
Talking about Redmi, the anticipated device with this processor is the Redmi K40 Pro. It is expected to launch in the first quarter of next year. While its parent company Xiaomi will also be refreshing its flagship Mi 10 series to Mi 11 or Mi 20 and they will be revealed in February next year. Hence, we can expect Qualcomm to announce the next-generation Snapdragon 875 chipsets at the end of this year. And probably, we will see devices with the 875 chipsets starting next year.
