Earlier last year, Qualcomm unveiled its first 7nm mobile chip, Qualcomm Snapdragon 855, which appeared on this year’s flagship Android majority with a strong performance. And this year, rumors suggest that the Snapdragon 865 will continue to be produced with the new EUV 7nm ultraviolet cutting process, for improved performance. In addition, internal reports also reported that Qualcomm may launch two variants of the Snapdragon 865.
Yesterday, one of the prominent insiders, Roland Quandt, on his Twitter page spoke about the new flagship platform from Qualcomm. According to the tipster, the Snapdragon 865 will be released under the code name SM8250, according to the code name SM8150 of Snapdragon 855 earlier.
Snapdragon 865 is what Qualcomm employees call the next gen high-end SoC (SM8250). There are two variants: Kona + Huracan. Both with support for LPDDR5X RAM and UFS 3.0. One likely with, one without integrated 5G modem (SDX55) – I guess. Also no clue which is the one w/ 5G in it.

With the 5G mobile network in the early stages of development, Qualcomm will launch a Snapdragon 865 with two versions, including a version that supports 5G network with an integrated 5G mobile modem, and one without modem 5G integrated and will only support 4G LTE bandwidth available. These two versions will have their own code name, Kona and Huracan, and it is unclear which code name is the 5G version.
The 5G Modem integrated with the Snapdragon 865 is called Qualcomm Snapdragon X55, which is an upgraded version of the Snapdragon X50 modem currently on the Snapdragon 855. The new Snapdragon 865 chip will also support LPDDR5X and UFS 3.0 RAM technology. Similar to the predecessor generation.
Qualcomm will officially announce its new flagship chip in December this year. And as usual, Galaxy S11 will probably continue to be the first smartphone to be equipped with this chip.
