Owners of Android smartphones will soon be looking at their devices as under-powered has-beens.
Chipmaker Qualcomm will host its next Tech Summit soon when it will unveil new and much faster processors.
A livestream will kick off on December 1 and, provided Qualcomm follows its usual launch cycle, we can expect to see a new flagship processor revealed to the world on that morning, reports the Express.
Last year, Qualcomm revealed the top-end Snapdragon 865 chip during the first-day of the event, so it seems pretty likely we’ll see its successor one year later. It seems likely that the brains powering next year’s flagship Android smartphones will be branded Snapdragon 875.
This update will, no doubt, bring huge speed gains to the next generation of devices. Not only that, but it’s likely to make all of this year’s flagship phones look massively underpowered too.
As an example, when Qualcomm announced the 865, the firm boasted that its new chip would make phones, such as the OnePlus 8 Pro and Sony Xperia 1 II, around 25 percent faster than those running on the older 855 processor.
Along with being faster, Qualcomm’s new processors usually get more efficient, which means they’re less of a drain on the battery. Improvements to graphics performance for faster gaming and better photography features are often revealed as well.
