If you thought that the Galaxy S21 series will be powered by Qualcomm’s next generation Snapdragon 875 chipset, an heir to the 865 in the S20, you are sorely mistaken, as it will actually breeze through tasks with an even next-er generation processor, the Snapdragon 888.
Cool naming, eh? Qualcomm just announced the 888 at its Snapdragon Tech Summit keynote live stream above, paving the way for Samsung, LG, OnePlus, Sony, and other flagships phones as soon as next month.
New Snapdragon 888 features
- 5G modem integration (longer battery life)
- 5nm Qualcomm X60 modem
- 6th generation AI engine on a new Hexagon processor
- Fastest Adreno GPU graphics rendering on a Snapdragon ever
- 35% faster image processor (120 pictures per second at 12MP)
