According to past practices, Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 (final name has not yet been confirmed) will be commercially available in Q1 2021. In addition to the aforementioned Qualcomm gaming phones, Samsung S21 series, Xiaomi 11 series, and OPPO Find X3 series are expected to be unveiled.

Known news shows that the Snapdragon 875 is based on Samsung’s 5nm EUV process and will use the “1+3+4” eight-core three-cluster architecture, where “1” is the super-large core Cortex X1, and the rumored performance is increased by 30% compared to Cortex A78.

Although Qualcomm used the design of “1+3+4” in the past, the difference between the super-large core and the large core mainly lies in the CPU frequency. This time, the combination of the Cortex X1 super-large core and Cortex A78 large core is used for the first time. The “super-large nuclear”.
