Although it has not yet been presented, practically we already know all the details of the Snapdragon 898, the new beast from Qualcomm. Now an image has been leaked that confirms what we already know about him: that he is a processor of pure power which is ready to revolutionize the high end of mobile.
Recall that the model number of the Snapdragon 898 had already been revealed, which is the SM8450. Well, the photo in question is that of a mysterious mobile (the Xiaomi 12?) which is supposedly using a processor called Snapdragon SM8450. Is this image real? We do not know, but join us to analyze this new leak of the most anticipated processor of the year.
The Snapdragon 898 is powerful and this image proves it
In the image we can see the specifications that the Snapdragon 898 has, and that we already knew from previous leaks. This chip is based on the new ARMv9 architecture and it has 8 cores configured in 3 clusters.
The main cluster has a Cortex-X2 core capable of clock speeds of 3.09 GHz. In the second cluster we find three Cortex-A710 cores at 2.5 GHz and the last cluster has the remaining 4 Cortex-A510 cores at 1.79 GHz. Another detail that we can see in the photo is the processing unit graphic or GPU of the Snapdragon 898, in which the powerful Adreno 730 appears.
Although we have no information on the performance of this powerful brain, experts expect the main core to offer an increase in speed of 16% compared to the main core of the Snapdragon 888. In addition, everything indicates that the Snapdragon 898 will be manufactured with the 4nm process, which will optimize its power consumption.
When will the Snapdragon 898 arrive and on which phones?
Until now Qualcomm has not given official information on when the Snapdragon 898 will be launched. However, the Chinese leaker “Digital Chat Station”, responsible for all the mentioned leaks, assures that the company will officially present the processor at the end of this month. On the other hand, it is also speculated what will be the first mobile that will debut this new Qualcomm SoC.
The main candidate is the Xiaomi 12which according to the same filter it is already being mass produced. This is predictable if we take into account that a year ago the Chinese brand was in charge of launching the Snapdragon 888 with the launch of the Xiaomi Mi 11. However, the specifications of the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra were recently leaked in which we also saw the SD 898. And you… What do you think will be the first mobile to have the Snapdragon 898? Let us know in the comments.
