Xiaomi and Samsung have already launched the first smartphones with Snapdragon 865 processor, but other models with this same component should be made official in the coming weeks.
However, reports point out that Qualcomm intends to announce an enhanced version of its new high-performance chipset, presumably called the Snapdragon 865+. a leaker renowned Chinese revealed that this variant will be presented in the third quarter of this year.
In his post on Weibo, the Digital Chat Station He also said that the first prototypes will be available in two months. If we think about it, Qualcomm's decision to present a Plus version would be "in line" with what we saw last year, given that the company announced the Snapdragon 855 and 855+.
So far, there is no concrete information regarding the Snapdragon 865+, but considering the manufacturer's previous strategy, it is quite likely that the main difference between the two components is in the CPU and GPU clock, which will certainly be better in this new version.
In addition, it would also be a pleasant surprise to see an integrated 5G modem, something that was not inserted in the Snapdragon 865. When Qualcomm makes its new high-performance processor official, it should be the "heart" of the second batch of smartphones high-end 2020, including models from Xiaomi, Vivo, Nubia, OnePlus and Black Shark, for example.
Taking into account that the Snapdragon 855+ was also announced in the third quarter, more specifically in July, there is a possibility that the Snapdragon 865+ will also arrive in that same month. Anyway, we will have to wait for other leaks that corroborate with this information.
