Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 Will Come With LPDDR5 and 5G Support

With summer setting in, US chipmaker Qualcomm is bound to be in the later stages of development for its next flagship chipset, the Snapdragon 865. Information on the SoC is sporadic, but today we’ve got more on the next-gen Snapdragon processor.

Some details of the flagship SoC have been shared by popular tipster Roland Quandt on Twitter.

In a fresh tweet from the tipster, Roland says that Qualcomm’s employees are calling the company’s next flagship smartphone chipset the ‘Snapdragon 865’. He goes on to add that the processor is being developed with two different variants, which will be segregated on the basis of 5G support.

The Snapdragon 865’s two variants are dubbed as ‘Kona’ and Huracan’, and both will support LPDDR5X RAM and UFS 3.0 storage. Do keep in mind that the Snapdragon 855 already supported UFS 3.0 storage, with the OnePlus 7/7 Pro being the latest smartphones with the high-speed memory.

The exciting aspect of this new leak is that Roland continues to believe that the Snapdragon 865 will support LPDDR5 memory. LPDDR5 is a recent class of RAM that was released in February this year. It’s generally faster and more power efficient than the current gen LPDDR4.

There’s still some time before the chipset heads for mass production. The Snapdragon 865 is not expected to hit the market until the end of the year.
