Qualcomm will make an announcement this Tuesday, September 24, according to Japanese news sources. As the world's largest seller of mobile processors, this is expected to be the expected announcement of Snapdragon 865, successor to Snapdragon 855 Plus.
If so, we will be looking for a high class processor, actually manufactured by Samsung. The Snapdragon 865 will only be 7 nanometers, making it highly energy efficient and performance efficient.
In addition, we can count on extreme ultraviolet lithography (EUV). This is a more accurate method of placing transistors inside the chip. Lithography has been used on all recent high-end processors, including Huawei Kirin.
Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha and Other Phones may be featured
On the same day, Xiaomi plans to introduce the Mi Mix Alpha, a mobile phone that will feature a different design to what we are used to. We are talking about a mobile phone with a screen that hugs the screen curve, completely covering the side edge of the device.
In the world of technology, there are few coincidences. Therefore, it is likely that the Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha will be presented with a Snapdragon processor, probably the 855+ but we cannot rule out the possibility of this phone debuting the Snapdragon 865.
Also mentioned were the Sony Xperia 5 and Realme X2, which will feature the Snapdragon 855 and Snapdragon 730G, respectively. September 24th will surely be a special day for Qualcomm and the brands mentioned. The only unknown is the new processor, which promises to be superior to everything we have seen so far.
