Snapdragon 875 will be announced in December, could power Galaxy S21


Last updated: October 7th, 2020 at 07:09 UTC+02:00

The Snapdragon 875 chipset, which will probably be used in the Galaxy S21 series, will be announced in December. Qualcomm has started sending press invites for the online-only event that will be conducted from December 1 to December 2.

While Qualcomm hasn’t exactly confirmed that it would launch the Snapdragon 875 chipset during the event, the company reveals its flagship mobile chipset in December during the Qualcomm Snapdragon Tech Summit in Hawaii. And this year should be no different, except that the event will be online-only due to the ongoing pandemic, the necessary social distancing norms, and travel restrictions.

The Snapdragon 875 chipset is expected to be a 5nm chipset that uses one Cortex-X1 CPU core, three Cortex-A78 CPU cores, four Cortex-A55 CPU cores, and the integrated Snapdragon X60 5G modem. Apart from the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, and the Galaxy S21 Ultra, the chipset will likely be used in flagship smartphones from other brands, including OnePlus, OPPO, Realme, Vivo, and Xiaomi. During the event, Qualcomm might also unveil the Snapdragon 775G premium mid-range chipset. To remind you, the new Snapdragon 875, Snapdragon 875G, Snapdragon 775G, and Snapdragon 735G chipsets are expected to be fabricated by Samsung Foundry.

Samsung will also unveil its own flagship chipset, the 5nm Exynos 1000 (or the Exynos 2100), sometime early next year. Some rumors claim that the upcoming Exynos chipset lacks the Cortex-X1 CPU core, while others claim of it having the newest ARM core. Only time will tell if it would be able to match the performance of the Snapdragon 875.
