Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 announced with integrated 5G

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 is the chip that'll power your next flagship smartphone (like the Galaxy S21).

Yesterday, at the Snapdragon Tech Summit 2020 event, Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon 888 processor.

The Snapdragon 888 5G will include the 3rd generation Qualcomm Snapdragon X60 5G Modem-RF System, which will offer both mmWave and sub-6 5G compatibility across all major bands worldwide. Snapdragon 875 was an unofficial temporary name given to Qualcomm's upcoming flagship-grade chipset but the actual product turned out to carry the Snapdragon 888 moniker. The modem also supports 5G carrier aggregation, global multi-SIM, standalone, non-standalone, and Dynamic Spectrum Sharing.

The 888 also brings Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2, meaning the 888 brings the best of the best in connectivity.

The sixth-generation Qualcomm AI engine integrated on the Snapdragon 888 5G mobile platform includes a newly designed Qualcomm Hexagon processor, with a performance of 26 trillion operations per second (26 TOPS).

Unsurprisingly, Qualcomm revealed that the first devices based on the Snapdragon 888 chipset will be commercially available in the first quarter of 2021. According to Qualcomm, it chose the "888" because this number is a very lucky number in China. The AI platform is further enhanced by the 2nd generation Qualcomm Sensing Hub, which incorporates lower-power always-on AR processing for new intuitive and intelligent features.

The Snapdragon 888 uses 1 x 2.84GHz (ARM's latest Cortex X1 core) + 3 x 2.4GHz (Cortex A78) + 4 x 1.8GHz (Cortex A55) architecture.

Gaming: Snapdragon 888 is armed with the full Qualcomm® Snapdragon Elite Gaming™ arsenal. The Qualcomm® Adreno™ 660 GPU achieves its biggest performance leap yet, delivering up to 35% faster graphics rendering compared to the previous generation.

First up, the new processor is Qualcomm's first 5nm system-on-a-chip, which the company says brings improvements to performance and efficiency. Additionally, in collaboration with Truepic, Snapdragon 888 can capture cryptographically-sealed photos that are compliant with the Content Authenticity Initiative standard, an open standard for digital content provenance led by Adobe.
