Based on a statement by @rquandt on the user’s Twitter account, it seems that Qualcomm could be planning to release a Snapdragon 888 Lite chipset that comes without a 5G modem. While there is no official information in regards to which smartphone will come with the aforementioned chipset, it does give us a better idea of what to expect when it is officially available in the global market.
From what we can see, the tweet mentioned that the Snapdragon 888 Lite will most likely be priced much cheaper compared to its non-Lite counterpart. Not only that, but there could also be a possibility that Huawei might adopt the chipset in question to any of their non-5G smartphones.
Qualcomm has a lower end derivate of the Snapdragon 888 (SM8350) in the works. SM8325 is the model number and there seems to be NO integrated 5G modem on this one. #CheapFlagshipPhones— Roland Quandt (@rquandt) March 8, 2021
With all that being said, do take some of the information with a grain of salt, due to the fact that Qualcomm and Huawei have yet to provide an official statement on the leak. Not only that, but there’s also no news on the Malaysia release date, local pricing, and exact tech specs for now.
