Qual­comm could launch the Snap­drag­on 865 proces­sor in Decem­ber at its Snap­drag­on Tech Sum­mit.

Qual­comm is host­ing its annu­al Snap­drag­on Tech Sum­mit from Decem­ber 3 to Decem­ber 5 in Maui Coun­ty in the US State of Hawaii where it is expect­ed to launch its next-gen tech­nolo­gies along­side the Snap­drag­on 865 chipset. The new proces­sor will no doubt be the star of the event and it will fea­ture on flag­ship smart­phones of the next year.

The Snap­drag­on 865 will be the suc­ces­sor to the Snap­drag­on 855 chipset that was announced at the event last year and pow­ers the flag­ship devices of 2019. The new SD 865 chipset is expect­ed to come with a ver­sion inte­grat­ed with a 5G modem.

As per an ear­li­er leak by Roland Quandt, the Snap­drag­on 865 chip has the mod­el num­ber SM8250 and it will come in two vari­ants going by the code­names– Kona and Hura­can. As per the report, both vari­ants will have sup­port for LPDDR5X RAM and UFS 3.0 flash stor­age.

The chipset is expect­ed to be built on TSMC’s 7nm Fin­Fet process. It is also expect­ed to come with an updat­ed Adreno GPU and new CPU cores as well.

Apart from the Snap­drag­on 865, Qual­comm is also expect­ed to unveil an upgrade to the Snap­drag­on 8cx SoC– its first ded­i­cat­ed lap­top chip that was first announced at the last year’s Snap­drag­on Tech Sum­mit.

Qual­comm could launch a new wear­able chip named — Snap­drag­on Wear 3300 — based on Snap­drag­on 429 plat­form. The chip has been report­ed to be in the work and could suc­ceed the Snap­drag­on Wear 3100 of last year. The tech giant is also expect­ed to launch 5G-inte­grat­ed chipsets for mid-range smart­phones to be released in 2020 as well.
