Yesterday, a poster related to an event that will take place on September 24, until now not officially announced by Qualcomm, appeared online. The poster does not provide any details about this event but it is believed that it could be related to the launch of the Xiaomi Mi 9 Pro 5G smartphones and the Mi MIX Alpha that are scheduled to be announced that day. In addition, the Sony Xperia 5 and Realme X2 will also arrive that day. Some rumors speak that the American chip maker will release its new Snapdragon 865 flagship chip.
Smartphones that will arrive the same day come with a Qualcomm processor. The Xiaomi Mi 9 Pro 5G uses a Snapdragon 855+ SoC. Sony Xperia 5 comes with a Snapdragon 855b, while Realme X2 is powered by a Snapdragon 730G chip. As for the Xiaomi Mi MIX Alpha phone, the processor is not known for now.
Probably, the Qualcomm event for September 24 is related to one of the three smartphone brands mentioned. The possibility of an announcement of the Snapdragon 865 chipset is very low. According to the practice of previous years, Snapdragon 865, the name with which it is known until now, is expected to debut at the end of 2019 and should reach the market in the first half of 2020. For now, it remains only to wait until that date to know that Qualcomm will bring. (Source)
