Evan Blass revealed more details about the upcoming Qualcomm flagship processor in a tweet.
“SM8450 is Qualcomm’s next-gen premium system-on-chip (SoC). It has an integrated Snapdragon X65 5G Modem-RF system. It is fabricated on a 4nm process.”
The GPU is said to be an Adreno 730, while the ISP is a Spectra 680. Both are unannounced, and we do not know how they will be an improvement over the GPU and ISP of the current Snapdragon 888. Interestingly, the Snapdragon 888+ will debut two new chips: an Adreno 665 video processing unit and an Adreno 1195 display processing unit. Again, we still do not have a clue as what to these chips will do–considering that you already have an Adreno GPU already.
For connectivity, the Snapdragon 888+ will use Qualcomm’s Fastconnect 6900 and an X65 5G modem. The former will give support to WiFi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2, while the latter will offer support for up to 1Ghz mmWave downlink and up to 400Mhz Sub-6Ghz downlink. Speaking of the X65 modem, Qualcomm promises up to 10gbps download speeds–though it will take a while before we get to realize such speeds.
There’s also a mention of support for quad-channel LPDDR5 RAM and an unknown Qualcomm secure processing unit. With all this info, the Snapdragon 888+ is expected to be more than just an incremental upgrade to the Snapdragon 888.
