it was learned from the mobile phone that Qualcomm recently published a page on its foreign official website, announcing that its technology summit will be held from November 30 to December 2, 2021. The poster shows a boat with an infinity sign that says “More to come, soon1 (more, soon!). There is no additional information.
However, after contacting the previous revelations, it is not difficult to guess that Qualcomm is expected to release the next-generation flagship Snapdragon 898 mobile platform at this technology summit event. In addition, some sources claim that the first mobile phone to use this chipset will be the Xiaomi Mi 12, which will be launched at the end of this year. Looking back at the process of previous Qualcomm Technology Summit activities, it is certain that the Snapdragon 898 will most likely be introduced in detail on November 30, otherwise, it will not be later than December 2.
Because there have been some revelations on the Internet before, we were able to have a basic understanding of the specifications of the Snapdragon 898 mobile platform. Xiaomi Mi 12 is expected to be equipped with an AMR Cortex-X2 CPU core clocked at 3.0GHz, three Cortex-A710-based mid-core cores clocked at 2.5GHz, and four high-efficiency Cortex-A510 derivative cores clocked at 1.79GHz.
It is said that the GPU is Adreno 730. Between the architecture improvement of Adreno 660 and Samsung’s 4nm manufacturing process, it may bring up to 20% performance improvement. For connectivity, we expect that the chip will use an X65 5G modem with a theoretical maximum downlink speed of 10Gbps.
