According to previous revelations, Qualcomm will launch an upgraded version of Snapdragon 888 (SM8350) in a period of time. The current code name is SM8450. According to the latest news, this product will also provide a 4G version like Snapdragon 888.
This news comes from the blogger @数码闲聊站. He said that Qualcomm SM8450 will also provide a version of the castrated 5G baseband, so there is no need to say which one will give it.
As for the detailed specifications of this Qualcomm SM8450, foreign whistleblower @evleaks stated that it is based on the ARM v9 architecture and uses TSMC’s 4nm process.
The CPU part is based on the Kryo 780 core, and the GPU will be upgraded to Adreno 780. Its 5G version will integrate Qualcomm Snapdragon X65 5G modem. As for the 4G version, the situation is not clear.
In addition, a device called Qualcomm Lahaina recently appeared on GeekBench. Its running is divided into single-core 1171, multi-core 3704, and overall it is not much different from the current Qualcomm Snapdragon 888.
Even considering that the optimization has not been completed yet, so the running score is low. This SM8450 did not reach the improvement of the new processor, so it will eventually be named Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 Plus (Pro) Lite?
However, if the situation is true, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 series will have 888 5G, 888 4G, 888 Wi-Fi and two upgraded products, which can be regarded as a very rich choice.
