Is Snapdragon 898(8 Gen 1) the terminator of 888?

According to reports, the Qualcomm company will launch a new generation of CPU processor, and external media will temporarily name it Qualcomm Snapdragon 898.


The Snapdragon 898’s internal code is sm8450, with Samsung 4 nm process and Kryo 780 CPU architecture, powered with Octa-core super strong processors, using up to 3.0GHz Cortex-X2 architecture as its main core(single core), and use 2.5GHz Cortex-A710 architecture as its second core(Contains 3 cores), and use 1.8GHz Cortex-A510 architecture as its third core(Contains 4 cores) configuration. The overall performance will be at least 20% higher than that of Snapdragon 888.

Since the launch of Snapdragon 888, due to its high energy consumption and high heat generation problems, the response in the market has been mediocre, and it was even considered to be lost to the Snapdragon 870.

And Mi 10 is the first mobile phone with the Snapdragon 888 processor. It has been dragged down by this and has not performed well in the market since its launch. During the 11.11 sale period, big promotion were also used to increase shipments.

Oneplus annouced its new phone model — Oneplus 9 RT 5G — at its latest new product conference, which equipped with Snapdragon 888 processor, that’s not a wise choice!

So, can the appearance of 898 wash away the shame of 888? It is reported that, there are at least two smartphone brands competing for the first launch priority of the Snapdragon 898, which are Xiaomi and Motorola. And who will be the winner? Let’s keep focusing on.

With the arrival of the Qualcomm Technology Summit, the specific model name of this new processor will also be announced at the Technology Summit.
