Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 898/895 Processor: Everything We Know So Far

The chipset will likely be based on 4nm fabrication technology

Over the last few weeks, we had reports about the next flagship processor from Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 888+. This is expected to be an improved version of the already existing Snapdragon 888, much like the Snapdragon 865+ from last year. But now a well-known leaker, Evan Blass has posted a picture about the next generation Qualcomm, the one that will power the flagship phones of 2022. The picture reveals some basic information about this next-gen flagship processor (898/895?) from Qualcomm. So what can we expect from this upcoming flagship processor? Let’s take a look at it.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 898/895 features

We don’t have a confirmation on the name of this processor yet. The rumours reveal the model number as the SM8450 or Waipio. It will be called the Snapdragon 898/895 when it officially launches though.

This upcoming processor will be fabricated on a 4nm process. It will feature the Qualcomm X65 5G modem, an upgrade over the X60 5G modem found on the Snapdragon 888. This will result in better wireless download speeds of up to 10 Gbps, a 33% jump from the 7.5 Gbps speed from last year.

This processor will also bring a new architecture chip, with Kryo 780 cores on board. We don’t have the specific numbers about this architecture yet, but we can soon expect some leaks on it in the future. The GPU will also receive an update from the Adreno 660 to the Adreno 730. We don’t know what is new with this GPU, but if Qualcomm wants to compete with Samsung’s Exynos that will have AMD GPU, the update needs to be a substantial one. Spectra 680 IPS inside this upcoming processor will handle all the factors related to the smartphone’s optics.

We also have Qualcomm’s FastConnect 6900 chip that will handle Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi 6E connectivity. Apart from that, we have the Adreno 665 as the video processing unit and Adreno 1195 as the display processing unit. This upcoming processor will also provide support for Qualcomm Aqstic WCD9380/WCD9385 audio codec and quad-channel package-on-package LPDDR5 RAM.
