Qualcomm is expected to launch a plus version of its flagship chipset based on its previous launch schedule. The schedule that the company has followed for its flagship chipsets is a launch in December followed by a plus version in July.
The Snapdragon 888 was unveiled in December, which means we can expect a Snapdragon 888+ this July. This doesn’t seem too far-fetched now as a listing of what is believed to be the upgraded flagship was spotted on Geekbench.
The upgrade that the Snapdragon 888+ brings is to the Cortex-X1 core that runs at 3.0GHz compared to its clock speed 2.84GHz on the current version. In addition, the four Cortex-A55 cores run at 1.8GHz, while the three Cortex-A78 cores run at 2.4GHz.
Not much else is known about the upgraded flagship but it is expected to a slight boost in GPU clock speeds. More information on the new chipset is expected to emerge in the following weeks.
