Qualcomm recently published a page on its website revealing that its Tech Summit event will be held between November 30 and December 2, 2021. There’s "More to come, soon!" text on the poster- that's about it.
It is pretty much expected that Qualcomm will most likely announce its next-gen flagship SoC for androids which rumors say will be known as the Snapdragon 898. According to tipster Digital Chat Station, Xiaomi will be the first to release a Snapdragon 898-powered handset, followed by Motorola and then the much hyped Galaxy S22 series.
The recent leak showing us a mysterious phone, apparently running the latest Snapdragon SM8450/ Snapdragon 898 chipset. The most notable thing is the past rumoured specs of the chipset is actually pretty much reconfirmed by this leak.
The SM8450 model number can clearly be seen in the photo even though the name of the SoC is blurred but its fine. Every other specs are visible. We’re talking about 8 cores and 3 clusters. The primary cluster has one core running at 3.00Ghz - its the Cortex X2 core which is 16% faster compared to last years Cortex X1 core.
Then we can see three high performance Cortex-A710 cores clocked at 2.5 GHz, and four high efficiency Cortex-A510 cores, clocked at 1.79GHz.
On top of all these the GPU is also visible which is the Adreno 730. Which according to past reports will be a totally different level of an upgrade from the last one. Judging by its name, it sounds like a significant leap over the Snapdragon 888’s Adreno 660 GPU anyway. The General Manager of Lenovo China’s Mobile Business Group, Chen Jin, even said the Snapdragon 898 will have a much-improved GPU. So take it how you want.The new Snapdragon 898 will be manufactured using 4nm technology, which will make it way more efficienct.
