Qualcomm will reportedly announce its next flagship chipset – Snapdragon 898 – early next month. The new chip is said to be fabricated on Samsung’s 4nm process and will reportedly bring 20% better performance over its predecessor. While Qualcomm is yet to announce the arrival of the next flagship SoC, several smartphone manufacturers have already started developing new phones with the unannounced chip.
According to the latest information by reliable tipster Digital Chat Station, the Black Shark 5 series and Red Magic 7 series will also pack the Snapdragon 898 SoC. Both of these are gaming-focused smartphone makers and are usually one of the very first to bring a phone with the new flagship chip from Qualcomm. Yesterday, we learned that Xiaomi 12 will be the first phone to launch with the Snapdragon 898 SoC-powered phone next month, and Motorola is also on the list, this time.
The Red Magic 7 series phone with model number NX679J has also been spotted on the MIIT certification site. So, the launch is not too far from here. The tipster claims that both the Red Magic 7 series and Black Shark 5 series have large battery capacities and support 100W fast charging. The devices will bring a powerful heat dissipation system.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 898 SoC reportedly code-named “SM8450” is expected to bring major performance upgrades. According to recent leaks, the chip has one 3.0 GHz Cortex-X2 prime core, three 2.5 GHz Cortex-A710 mid-cores, and four power-efficient Cortex-A510 cores clocked at 1.79 GHz.
