As Qualcomm is gearing up for its next big launch aka Qualcomm Snapdragon 898, both Xiaomi and Motorola have made it public that they will be the first two smartphone makers that will release phones with Snapdragon 898. This comes from a trusted leakster on Weibo – Digital Chat Station. However, the inclination is towards Xiaomi since Motorola has maintained it will roll out a device by the end of this year so it is likely that Xiaomi could take the lead.

A leaked photo has appeared on the internet giving a peek into the cluster on the upcoming chipset dubbed SM8450 or Snapdragon 898. The chipset has a 3-cluster setup. This includes a Cortex-X2 core clocked at 3.0GHz along with three mid-line Cortex-A710 cores clocked at a max 2.5GHz plus four power-efficient Cortex-A510 cores at 1.79GHz. According to the rumors, the chipset will use Samsung 4nm process providing a 20 percent better performance although that’s rumored and we are yet to find any substantial evidence on it.

The chipset is likely to arrive with Adreno 730 GPU which will take a lead on the current flagship Adreno 660 GPU. Apart from that, the chipset is likely to have Snapdragon X*50 5G modem providing a download speed of 10Gbps theoretically, although that is yet to be discussed.

Talking about the takers, both Motorola and Xiaomi are among the first two OEMs to get their hands on Snapdragon 898. Here, Motorola will roll out its flagship smartphone by the end of this year. Xiaomi is working on Xiaomi 12 (earlier Mi 12) that will get their hands on a Snapdragon 898 SoC and it is likely to arrive before Motorola’s. Now that Samsung has delayed the Galaxy S22 series to arrive in February 2022, Motorola can take a lead.

Qualcomm organizes a launch event in the initial days of December and this year is unlikely to be different.
