It was first assumed that Qualcomm may not launch the Snapdragon 865 Plus processor this year but some reports that came later pointed out that’s not the case. Now one of the top tipsters, Ice Universe has posted on Weibo that the processor could launch in July this year. This is the same timeframe during which the Snapdragon 855 Plus was also launched.
The tipster didn’t reveal any other details but expect the Snapdragon 865 Plus to come with overclocked GPU and CPU speed, upgrades similar to the last year’s Snapdragon 855 Plus processor.
The tipster also claims that if all goes well, the upcoming flagship phones of the year will feature this new processor.
Currently, there are only a few names that are suspected to come with Snapdragon 865 Plus processor. One is the iQOO 3 Pro which is tipped to feature 6.56-inch AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate. The second phone is said to be Lenovo Legion gaming-centric phone which may launch next month as well. Asus ROG Phone 3 is also suspected to feature the Snapdragon 865 Plus processor. And, much-anticipated one is Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G that could also feature the upcoming processor. But it is unknown which phone will feature it first.
Well, we are not too far away from the launch if the tipped timeframe of the Snapdragon 865 Plus processor is true. Let’s wait for the technical details to get revealed on the day of launch.
