Qualcomm is apparently having a slightly better version of its current beast Snapdragon 865 SoC which it may release in the Q3 2020. According to a tip offered by the Weibo user Digital Chat Station, the Snapdragon 865 Plus could come in the Q3 2020. But other details on the SoC haven’t been tipped, and nor do we have any intel on the same.
Qualcomm used to launch one flagship processor in a year but last year the scenario changed as it also launched a Plus variant of its flagship processor as well.
Last year’s Snapdragon 855 Plus variant brought only clock speed change in the CPU and GPU. The increased clock speeds were offered to let the smartphones push themselves a bit better in terms of performance than the ones with the Snapdragon 855 processor.
According to Qualcomm, the overclocked speed in the GPU of the Snapdragon 855 Plus offers a 15% increment over the predecessor. A similar change is expected in the yet-to-come or even yet-to-exist the Snapdragon 865 Plus variant as well.
But, it is too early to assume the specifications or capabilities of the Snapdragon 865 Plus processor. So, let’s just wait to find out more about the processor in the coming days or weeks. If the launch of the Snapdragon 865 Plus SoC is certain then we would learn more about it sooner.
