Qualcomm processor for premium smartphones announced

The new chip received two fundamental improvements over the previous version:

  • maximum clock
    frequency increased to 3 GHz,
  • the Qualcomm Hexagon 780 AI processor, which is required for the operation of the artificial intelligence module, has become 20% more powerful.

The first manufacturers to use the Snapdragon 888 Plus will be ASUS, Honor, Motorola, Vivo and Xiaomi.

The rest of the characteristics do little to distinguish the new chip from the original Snapdragon 888. The platform is equipped with an Adreno 660 GPU, a Snapdragon X60 5G modem, and an ARM Cortex-X1 core.

The first smartphones, which will receive an updated single-chip platform, will be released in the third quarter of 2021.
