A new Snapdragon 888 Pro chipset could be launching in Q3 2021 on a Samsung flagship


Every quarterly, there would always be a new chipset for the next generation. A good example of this is none other than the Snapdragon 865 and Snapdragon 865+ that were released in the same year. Now, according to a new rumour - Digital Chat Station claimed that the Snapdragon 888 Pro chipset is now being tested and is expected to launch in Q3 of 2021.

The Snapdragon 888 Pro is expected to be a small upgrade running on a 5nm fin process and high clocking speed. Since it could be released in Q3 this year, it might be onboard of Samsung's upcoming two new foldable smartphones that are rumoured to be released in July. Currently, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 is using a Snapdragon 865+ and there is a probability that the new successor is featuring the Snapdragon 888 Pro.


On top of that, Digital Chat Station also tweeted that some new products from this year's SD 700 series may not be available, so the SD 780G will remain in the position for some time. It's also said that Qualcomm might decentralize it in 2022 so that the SD 888 will be available in the mid-range market.

While that sounds exciting for the phone industry, Digital Chat Station also said that the chipset may not be released in overseas. That sounds like something that shouldn't happen but I guess we will just have to wait and see. Stay tuned for more trending tech news at TechNave.com.
