Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 and 100W Fast-charging
According to the earlier news, Snapdragon 865’s overclocked version Snapdragon 865 Plus will be released in July, with the main frequency of up to 3.09Ghz and a running score of 646310 points (Asus Rog Phone 3).
But PLUS is only a transition, after all, the real successor will be Snapdragon 875. As usual, Qualcomm will hold the Snapdragon Technology Summit in December, when the Snapdragon 875 will be officially announced.
“Next year’s Q1 gaming mobile phone’s main selling point will Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 875 processor and +100W± fast charging. At present, three of China’s four gaming mobile phone manufacturers are testing to promote the commercialization of 100W fast charging and a large battery to play games more conveniently.” stated by well-known technology blogger on Weibo.
Coincidentally, the former OPPO vice president Shen Yiren also asked on Weibo: “Who would be the first to “produce mass production” and “commercially” with 100W+ mobile phone charging?“
In this regard, the digital chat station said that the OPPO plan was originally planned to show the engineering plan in Q1 this year. After all, its own 100-watt fast charge progress is also very fast. I don’t know when commercial phones will be released?
Previously, Xiaomi and Vivo have demonstrated their 100W and 120W fast-charging solutions. Lu Weibing, president of Xiaomi Group China and general manager of the Redmi brand, also said that the 100W fast charging technology has reached the early stage of mature mass production and can be expected in the future.
It is worth mentioning that as early as 2019, Lin Bin, vice chairman of Xiaomi Group, showed Xiaomi 100W fast charging. Under the 100W fast charge blessing, it fully charged 4000mAh battery in 17 minutes. If mass production and commercial use, this speed may be faster.
While talking about Snapdragon 875, it may bring a real super-large Cortex X1. ARM claims that it will provide a 30% higher peak performance than the Cortex-A77.
Compared with the Cortex-A78, the integer operation performance of the Cortex-X1 is improved by 23%, and the machine learning ability of the Cortex-X1 is twice that of the Cortex-A78.
If Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 uses Cortex X1+Cortex A78, then it is expected to continue the combination of “1+3+4” and refresh its performance record in the Android camp again. Besides, Snapdragon 875 is expected to integrate 5G baseband X60, which is one of the reasons for its price increase.
The Snapdragon 875 is expected to use the 5nm process. Some say that it is TSMC or some Samsung process. The convention is to release it at the end of this year and it will be available around March next year.
From this point of view, the Snapdragon 875 and 100W fast charge will become the standard of next year’s top flagship especially e-Sports gaming flagship phones, and extreme performance + extreme charging will bring a better experience for gamers.
